Staying in Capitol Hill is a study in contrasts; the main strip is crowded with great shopping, restaurants, cafes, bars and no shortage of clubs, bringing in a hip late-night crowd. But accommodations, while only blocks from the action, are nearly all cozy B&Bs, tucked away on quiet streets lined with trees.
Like the Bed & Breakfast on Broadway, an elegant inn with an exquisite collection of art and antiques and a staff of knowledgeable fine art lovers. Or the Shafer Baille Mansion, a stunning Tudor Revival home only one block from the lovely Volunteer Park.
The Salisbury B&B offers a private bath for each guestroom, which are renowned for their space and large windows. Bacon Mansion, another Tudor-style home, is pure elegance, from its marble fireplaces to its wonderful library.
The Mozart Guest House offers a full organic breakfast, and Mildred's Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful Victorian home with a gracious and welcoming staff. The Silver Cloud in Capitol Hill offers rooms with free wi-fi and is only a nine-block walk from downtown Seattle.
