Default Hotel in Seattle Washington

We've booked a cruise to Alaska leaving out of Seattle WA. I've looked online and found some "OK" hotels but would rather find one that is close to activities in the area (Space Needle etc) without renting a car $$$$$. I don't mind doing some walking but just don't know the best location to book.

Thanks for any recomendation you might have.

I would try Priceline and bid for a four star hotel in the "Seattle Center-Space Needle" area and start around $85. If that doesn't work then add the "Seattle Downtown-Pikes Place" area and up your bid by $10.

If that doesn't work then lower your star level to 3 star and don't raise your bid. I would not recommend going lower than a 2.5 star hotel.

See how that works out.

Take care,

I live in Seattle, and here are my thoughts:

if you are willing to take the bus system (very easy, affordable, and safe- Seattle is a bus-friendly city, so you will find all sorts of people riding the metro) there is an excellent B&B about 30 minutes bus ride from downtown (ie: space needle). It is called the Greenlake Guest House, and it is where I send my family when they are in town.

Yeah.. Seattle is a nice place,

We visited pike place market and the first Starbucks while we were there...

The streets in the city area is easy to walk with shopping malls and eateries.

Took a monorail to the space needle.

Transport is GREAT!
