Don't miss a visit to the Space Needle during your stay at our downtown hotel. This iconic Seattle landmark offers breathtaking views through rotating glass floors above the city. Enjoy dining on the upper observation level and a wine bar at the top level. You can also do a virtual bungee jump with Stratos VR. Sign the digital globe while you're there to leave your mark on Seattle history.

What's New

Head to Pike Place Market during your stay to browse produce stands, local restaurants, art galleries, boutique stores, and more less than a mile away from our hotel. Seattle's original farmers market was established in 1907 and is still a thriving, iconic Seattle experience. If you're a coffee fan, make sure to stop by the very first Starbucks®, located near the waterfront at Pike Place Market.


If you're looking to discover hidden gems along with the more popular things to do in Seattle, book a walking tour with Seattle By Foot. Explore side streets and local coffee shops while learning more about the lesser-known history of downtown Seattle with the help of an experienced local tour guide. Make sure to pack comfortable shoes as these Seattle walking tours can be up to two hours long.

Must Do

Catch a Seahawks game, tour the stadium, or attend a world-class concert at Lumens Field, just 10 minutes away from our downtown Seattle Hotel. Lumens Field is also home to the Seattle Sounders FC, the city's own professional soccer team. For baseball fans, the home of the Mariners is just 6 minutes away. Formerly Safeco Field, T-Mobile Park also offers tours of its famous facilities.

Don't Go Home Without

If walking tours aren't your thing, try exploring Seattle by boat. Our hotel is less than a mile away from Argosy Cruises at Piers 54 and 55. Choose from seven sightseeing tours around Seattle, including a Saturday Wine Cruise and a Sunday Historical Cruise. Enjoy views of the Seattle skyline from the water. Specific cruises offer views of different landmarks, so plan your trip accordingly.
