by nanadear

Hi guys, traveling with 6 adults for a July Alaskan cruise.We'll fly in Sat. and cruise out the following Tues. so we have 3 days to see the sites and need info about hotels near the spaceneedle district about $100-$175 night. Also would like advice on best way -to get from Sea-Tac to that area. Looking forward to exploring the area before our cruise.

It's been several years since my wife and I flew into Seattle for a wedding but here is what we did. There are buses from Sea-Tac to the hotels downtown. I'm pretty sure they also have a rail system now that goes there as well. We are partial to Marriott's, but they may be a bit higher then what you are looking for, but you might want to try to get an early deal since you aren't going until July.

There are a lot of chain hotels, e.g., Comfort Inn, Marriott, around the Seattle Center (Space Needle). I've visited friends who have stayed at the Hampton Inn @ 700 5th Ave N (three blocks away from the Seattle Center) & MarQueen Hotel @ 600 Queen Anne Ave N (two blocks away). Both hotels were nice.

Before booking a hotel, be sure to MapQuest the hotel's location. I've seen hotels in Tukwila, Bellevue and Edmonds advertise that they are "only minutes" away from downtown Seattle. That's true if you've got a police escort & they aren't obeying any speed limit.

July is a fairly busy month for tourism. I wouldn't wait too much longer to book a room or else you might have no choice but to book a room in Tukwila, Bellevue, or Edmonds.

With 6 people, you might want to consider a rental. When we researched our Seattle trip last fall, we found hotels to more expensive that we wanted to fork over for a small "box". Ended up renting a studio apartment in a close-in, nice area for about $125 a night. Friends who live in Seattle and stopped in for cocktails, said it was a steal for the area.

Rentals on our favorite sites (VRBO and Homeaway) come in all sizes so you could get a three-bedroom or, if wanting to save a few $$$, 2 bedroom with a pull-out couch. Perks are having a kitchen for making breakfast or heating up take-out meals (restaurants are expensive in the city) and most come with other amenities ranging from wi-fi, free local phones. internet, laundry facilities, rooftop patios, etc.

Previous posters are right about that drive from the airport - it's a hike and congestion is intense! Also, central Seattle has a lot of one-way streets - it took us awhile to figure out how to get from point A to point B! Maybe just take a cab - you really don't need a car in the city and parking is a pain.

Good lord - sorry for all the typos in previous message. I got up too early this morning....

From SeaTac you can travel by Go Airport Shuttle direct to the hotel. I would recommend staying in a Downtown hotel, the Space Needle is only a few minutes on the monorail from downtown. (5th and Pine)

Travel Tips for Seattle


by roryjames

Where to start about Seattle! I spent four years here going to college at Seattle Pacific University and loved it. A city with an amazing culture and tons to see, there is always someplace new to go. I would have to say that my favorite things to do in Seattle is drive around in a convertible and observe the variety of sights and neighborhoods. Seattle is a beautiful, green city

Visit the 'fish guys' at Pike...

by csauve

Visit the 'fish guys' at Pike Place Market, this open air market serves fish to people and the way the workers communicate is by screaming and throwing fish in the air! its kinda like a baseball game but they use fish instead of baseballs...all you see is fish flying over your head so beware! I like the Ocean and Shilshole beach is really nice right in ballard, the Jimmy Hendrix memorial is also really cool.

Victor Steinbrueck Park

by mht_in_la

Victor Steinbrueck Park is at the northern tip of Pike Place Market. It has very relaxed atmosphere. In the grass area you often see people reading, sun tanning, or taking a break from biking or jogging. The Park is decorated with totem poles to celebrate native culture. There are also some homeless people hanging around the Park.

The photo shows downtown skyline as seen from Victor Steinbrueck Park. It was a clear and sunny day, and you can see Mt. Rainer in the photo. You have to enlarge the photo and look hard. It's above the stadium buildings to the right.

Seattle News

by jamiesno

Here in Canada on satelline we get the Komo 4 news all the time.

But I really liked this picture I got. This is their news helicoper but I got this view of it from the Space Needle.

When I went back down on the street I got some more pictures then as it took off and went to get some news I guess.

New Year's Rocks in Seattle!

by Erin74

If you happen to be in Seattle for New Year's Eve, you're in for a really good time.

The city of Seattle presents a fireworks display at the Space Needle. From all over the Seattle area you can see the fireworks exploding around the Space Needle beginning at midnight. It's a wonderful sight!

The downtown area does get very crowded for the fireworks. If you're driving, get there earlier in the day so you can find a spot on the street.
