Seattle Washington Sheraton Hotel
The Sheraton Grand Seattle recently completed a multi-million dollar redevelopment that included a new lobby, new restaurants and an expanded Sheraton Club and Lounge.
Located in the downtown theater district, just a short walk from Seattle Center, the Four Diamond Hotel offers stunning skyline views. The area is also easily accessible by public transportation: South Lake Union and Capitol Hill are connected to downtown by streetcar and car lines, and there is a tram line that connects the International District from Pioneer Square to the International District. Seattle is also connected by light rail, and we have a Seattle monorail that connects Seattle to downtown.
The Pioneer Square hotels are located in Pioneer Square, a short walk from Seattle Center, Capitol Hill, South Lake Union and the International District, all just blocks from the Four Diamond Hotel's main entrance.
If you are staying in downtown Seattle and want a shuttle to the harbor, one option is to find a downtown hotel, and you might want to choose these special Holiday Inn Express Suites. It is located just blocks from the International District, Capitol Hill, South Lake Union and Seattle Center. They already offer transfers to and from airports, but if you want a more convenient way of getting around, you can also stay at one of the other hotels in the area.
Hilton Gold Diamond is located just blocks from the International District, Capitol Hill, South Lake Union and Seattle Center. The larger hotels in the city centre are a good choice if you are near the city, but the further you go along the water, the closer you will find yourself to the most noisy and crowded hotels. Downtown hotels can also be good for visitors to the Washington State Convention Center. Avoid downtown Seattle hotels during Labor Day and Memorial Day, when music festivals are congesting the area.
The best shopping centers in downtown are within a 5-minute walk, and you are about 3 blocks from the light rail. The Seattle Center, International District, Capitol Hill, South Lake Union and Washington State Convention Center are all within walking distance.
In these neighborhoods, parking is cheaper and easier, and if you are, access to the city is easy. Aside from the tram, most South Lake Union hotels offer free shuttles between downtown and Seattle Center. The Seattle Monorail offers a free shuttle service from downtown to Pioneer Square, Capitol Hill and the International Quarter. Neighborhoods like Downtown, Belltown and Pioneer Square are all just a short walk from Pike Place Market, so parking is cheaper and parking is cheap, but not as easy to find as downtown.
There are a lot of cheap hotels, the best hotel in Seattle is the Four Seasons, and if you want to stay in one of the coolest hotels Seattle has to offer, this hotel is a great option. If you can afford a hotel and are not looking for clubs and lounges, we recommend it for a good experience. Here is a list of some cheap hotels in Seattle around the harbor, but there are plenty of cheaper hotels.
Take a spin by the sea on one of the big wheels, hang out with the seals at the Seattle Aquarium, enjoy the sunset, eat the fresh seafood of life at all the great restaurants scattered along the way, and head to Seattle Center to see the sights and sounds of the Westlake Center. There is also a Port of Seattle Cruise Package, which includes a cruise that takes one and a half hours round trip from Seattle to downtown Seattle and back.
The Sheraton is one of the best in town and offers free Wi-Fi, free internet and free parking. In addition to the estimated "Grand" rating, the hotel has been fully booked for three years, so you know it is the best hotel.
It's fantastic, but it feels a little disconnected from the action in the city centre and maybe that's what you want. There are many great restaurants and bars in the Seattle area and some great bars and restaurants near the hotel, so it feels a little different from the other downtown Seattle hotels, which is perhaps what we wanted.
Note: Crowne Plaza Seattle used to have a Club Lounge, but that is no longer available and the hotel is fully booked, so you will need to rely on the Executive Lounge. It is open 24 hours a day and is located in the heart of the city centre, offering outdoor seating with views of the water.
The terminal is not within walking distance, but it is an easy shuttle ride and connected to the Washington State Convention Center, which is convenient if you want to enter the building or check in to many Seattle attractions. Seattle Center hotels are generally cheaper than downtown and offer a variety of amenities including restaurants, bars, shops and restaurants. But generally I have found that I find hotels on the less expensive end more expensive and less comfortable than hotels in other parts of the city.
