Best affordable hotel in downtown Seattle?

Asked by emilyrose (2269points) June 30th, 2008

I traveling alone for work and want a nice enough place where I can feel safe walking at night, and where there is a gym. I’m considering the Sheraton. Any others? I would ideally spend $150 -$170 a night.

You don’t mention if you like specific types of hotels. I like to get away from chains when I can. Here are some European boutique-feel hotels right downtown.

This hotel has a more European feel and is in your price range. Not sure about the gym.

I love the Hotel Vintage Park.

One that definitely does have a gym and has a great ambiance in your price range is Hotel Monaco.

I would prefer any of these three to the Sheraton. I can come up with others if you don’t like these. Have a great trip. I just got back from there.

I stay at the Paramount almost every time I am in Seattle. Friendly staff, nice rooms, and great people watching from the windows. It is close enough to most everything to walk, like Pikes Place, Pioneer Square, food etc.

Marina has gotten some of my favorites: Hotel Vintage Park and Monaco—two sweet hotels. There is another just up the hill from downtown that is a beauty, the Sorrento, on first hill, but very close to downtown. And one more offering, the Warwick, a bit north, across the street from the Cinema, and a very lovely small, nice hotel. Great breakfasts. don’t know about exercising, but if they don’t have it there, they might have an arrangement nearby.

@skfinkel Love the Sorrento! It was a favorite romantic getaway hotel for my husband and me.

The Ace Hotel. It’s not fancy but sophisticated, unique and right smack in the middle of Belltown, Seattle’s hot spot. http://www.acehotel.com/seattle/index.html
