Default Help in Seattle and Vancouver for 1st time visitor

My hubby and I are taking our first vacation by ourselves in a long time, as we have three year old twins. We will be cruising (Celebrity Infinity) in June up the inner passage in Alaska from Seattle. We are flying in 5 days early to sightsee, and are planning on spending a few days in Seattle and a few in Vancouver. Any recommendations on hotels, areas to stay in, areas to avoid, need for rental car, things to do, tours, etc? We have never been to the northwest so don't know what to expect. Thanks

I realize this is an old post but figured I would answer about Seattle since I was there a few months ago. If you stay near downtown seattle a rental car is probably unnessary since there is public transportation taxis etc and parking is a pain. One place I have heard of is the Silver Cloud Hotel but I have never stayed there. Be sure to go to the Pike Place Market.

If you stay near Sea - Tac airport you will need a car We liked Thifty for our needs and they were quite nice. What ever you do avoid The Howard Johnson in Kent WA it was a dump and they tried to overcharge us.

We recommend Inn at the Market in Seattle, as it is only 1/2 block from Pike Place. Seattle was a blast!!
