Recommended Family Hotels
Four Seasons Hotel Seattle – luxury
Suites are large and beautiful and will comfortably sleep a family of 5. The outdoor pool has views of the waterfront (and heated too so you can swim all year round). There’s also a jacuzzi, spa, and great fitness center. Bay View rooms look out over the waterfront, passing ferries, and the new Seattle ferris wheel. The hotel is smack in the center of the city with the Seattle Art Museum, Pike Place Market, restaurants, and shopping steps away.

The Westin Seattle – luxury
A great hotel in a great location. Close to the malls and high-end shopping of downtown. Fantastic views of the water, city, and mountains (the hotels twin towers are 47 floors high). Many great restaurants within 2 or 3 blocks. The pool is indoor and very kid-friendly.

Silver Cloud Hotel Stadium – moderate
Great location for Seahawks, Mariners, or Sounders games. (But not great to see the rest of the city’s attractions.) Light rail, a few restaurants, and a family-friendly brewery are nearby. Free shuttle will take guests anywhere in Seattle. Heated rooftop pool and jacuzzi are kid-friendly. King suites are large. As I say, this is a great hotel to see a football, baseball, or soccer game but if that’s not a priority then look somewhere else.

The Maxwell Hotel Seattle – moderate
Fun, family-friendly hotel with lots of character. Neighborhood feel to the surroundings and walking distance to Seattle Center, the monorail, many restaurants, and 3 grocery stores. Complimentary shuttle bus takes guests pretty much anywhere in the city. Free parking and free wi-fi. The swimming pool is very small but still nice for a dip. Pizza joint connected to the hotel.
