Top 10 Hotels in Seattle, Washington – Cancel FREE on most hotels

Seattle Hotels

The jewel of the Pacific Northwest, the Emerald City is a cluster of stylish modernity, flecked with greenery and framed with spectacular mountainous landscapes. Cosmopolitan yet casual, cutting edge yet eco-friendly, the city’s diverse population keep it focused on 21st Century living. From the quaint historical avenues of Pioneer Square to the contemporary art of Seattle Center, history and culture runs strong. With delectable dining, chic shopping and a buzzing nightlife to boot, whether you’re here for business or pleasure, this seaside city lacks nothing.

Things to see

With its flying saucer-like appearance dominating the skyline, the Space Needle is Seattle’s most iconic landmark. At over 600-ft high, the observation tower and revolving restaurant offer unmatched views of the city and mountains beyond. Chirping seagulls, souvenir shops, and the enticing smell of fish and chips – the Seattle Waterfront is the quintessential seaside experience. Here you stroll along the pier or view Seattle from a scenic cruise. Pike Place Market is a mecca for seasoned shopaholics and bargain hunters alike. Overlooking Elliott Bay, the bustling market has it all, from artisan crafted trinkets and antiques, to fresh local produce. Pioneer Square is the oldest neighborhood in the city. Home to quirky boutiques and eateries, the leafy streets are adorned with ornate lamps and pretty Renaissance Revival architecture. Baseball fans should make a home run for Safeco Field. Home to the Seattle Mariners, the stadium has a retractable roof and room for over 47,000 rowdy fans.

Hotels in
Seattle

As you’d expect for a large cosmopolitan city, hotels in Seattle are varied and plentiful. From sleek high rise aparthotels offering deluxe city living, to quirky-meets-chic boutique accommodation – whatever your purse or preference, you’ll find something here that ticks the boxes. Swimming pools, flat screen TVs, and WiFi are all common amenities in the city, while glittering Elliott Bay views adorn some of the more luxurious digs. Those conscious of the environment will have a number of eco-friendly hotels to choose from, while those conscious of their bank balance will find plenty of budget hotels in Seattle too.

Where to stay

A hotel in Seattle’s Downtown will put you in the bright lights of the city’s action. The primary business district and commercial haven, here you’ll find stacks of shops, restaurants and nightclubs, along with attractions including the Pike Place Market. For artsy types the 74 acres that make up Seattle Center is a cornucopia of cultural treats, with theater, music, and festivals galore. Art installations stud the streets, and the food court fuels the foot-lit buzz. Bellevue is a blend of cosmopolitan convenience and outdoorsy endeavors. With Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park and Woodinville’s wine county near by, hiking, biking and a good Chardonnay are all within reach.

How to get to Seattle

With direct connections to major destinations throughout the world, Seattle Tacoma International Airport will be the primary gateway into the city for most. Located a 25 minute drive from downtown Seattle, getting in from the

Inslee says elective surgeries, outdoor recreation and some construction could restart as Washington begins to recover from coronavirus

OLYMPIA – Gov. Jay Inslee Tuesday evening announced a road map for reopening Washington’s economy that could soon allow the return of some elective surgeries, outdoor recreation and certain construction projects.

In a 5 p.m. televised public address, Inslee didn’t say when the stay-at-home order — scheduled to lift at the end of the day on May 4 — might start to be rolled back. The plan would only move forward, he said, once cases of the new coronavirus have fallen enough that the state is able to manage future outbreaks.

But Inslee said that data on cases of COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, was beginning to look favorable.

If that continues, Inslee said, elective surgeries could begin again soon, as well as some outdoor recreation. Meanwhile, the governor’s office has agreed upon a plan with the construction industry and labor unions, “allowing limited return to construction with safety measures in place,” he said.

“We can modify some of these restrictions in the coming weeks, if the health modeling holds up,” Inslee said. But, “The health of Washingtonians is our top priority.”

The governor has said at least some restrictions are likely to stay in place longer than May 4.

Inslee’s three-part plan includes massive statewide testing, teams of workers performing contact tracing, resources for mental health and homelessness and a phased-in reopening of certain businesses while continuing social distancing.

The plan would make sure the state could quickly tamp down new outbreaks of COVID-19, reopen the economy in phases and help workers and businesses recover from the economic downturn.

The governor has emphasized that his decision to lift temporary restrictions such as the stay-at-home order — which shuttered thousands of businesses and maintained a ban on large gatherings — will be driven by public health data. One of the key indicators will be if the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to trend down over time.

As of Tuesday, there were 12,282 cases of COVOD-19 in Washington, including 682 deaths.

The plan envisions rapid and wide-scale testing across the state, as well as a surge in contact tracing. The state Department of Health (DOH) is working with county public health agencies to create a plan for extensive contact tracing, in which staff track down those who had direct contact with people who test positive for the coronavirus.

Inslee described the 1,500 people being brought on to do contact tracing — a mix of state and local health workers, members of the National Guard and volunteers — as a “rapid response” team. They could start operating by the second week of May, he added.

State officials aren’t saying yet how much it will cost. At a news briefing earlier in the day the governor’s chief of staff, David Postman, only said that Inslee told him to “go big, be aggressive and find people where you can get them.”

To successfully reopen, the state ultimately needs to be able to conduct between 20,000 and 30,000 tests daily for the

    Middle Fork Newaukum River Fish Passage Project

    Lewis County used a grant to replace a barrier under the Middle Fork Road in Onalaska. The new crossing helps fish access 2.5 miles of upstream habitat.

    “This project is an incredible achievement for the board, the people of Washington, and our environment,” said Kaleen Cottingham, director of the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office. “In addition to improving access for fish, these projects also will enhance the roads that cross over them, support public safety, and protect our communities from flooding.”

    Dune Peninsula Park

    The Metropolitan Park District of Tacoma used this grant to develop open park space on about 11 acres at Point Defiance Park, located on a peninsula at the northernmost point in the city. The primary recreation opportunities provided by the project are walking, picnicking and sightseeing. Amenities include walking trails, site furnishings, restrooms, lighting, signage and landscaping.

In its place, the department built an 80-foot-long bridge over the creek, doubling the available spawning habitat for salmon. Jefferson County contributed $164,872 in cash and a federal grant and $788,800 in a previously awarded salmon recovery grant.
