With the glamor and bustle of downtown areas comes noise and stress - not qualities you want to associate with your accommodations. Luckily, there are plenty of great hotels outside Seattle that provide peaceful, comfortable rooms still within close distance to all the action.
If you like sticking close to the airport, both the Courtyard by Marriott and the Doubletree are outstanding choices and offer first-rate service and amenities. For those in Seattle on business with Microsoft, Google or one of the many other corporations with headquarters in the city, Bellevue is the neighborhood that you want to stay in - try the Hotel Sierra or the Coast Hotel.
Up in the quiet, suburban area of Northgate, the Holiday Inn Express and Suites is a great choice for families visiting Seattle, and with its location close to the highway you'll be in downtown Seattle in just a few minutes. Or, head into the hip U-district - the University Inn is a great small, comfortable hotel with reasonable prices, the Watertown is stylish and urban, and Hotel Deca is a trendy, upscale boutique.
If you're looking for close proximity to downtown but in an area with plenty of family-friendly outdoor activities, check out the Silver Cloud Inn on Lake Union. And if peace and quiet is your number one priority, the MarQueen in Queen Anne is a quaint hotel in on a charming street just a short walk from Seattle Center and the Space Needle.
