I would recommend this hotel: http://www.alexishotel.com/index.html I haven’t personally stayed there but it looks amazing and is right in the middle of the good stuff downtown 🙂

What kind of things are you looking to do in Seattle? I’ve logged 6 yrs in the city and there are still things I haven’t done!

so we are big foodies here in seattle… here are some places that i have been to that are worth checking out.  it depends on how much you want to spend and what kind of food you like…

 

Serious Pie – has AWESOME flatbread pizzas

Lark – you can order several plates.  somewhat like tapas in that they come out in sharing sizes.

Cantinetta – SO good, and decently priced for a great meal

Volterra – awesome Italian food with homemade pasta.  Fantastic dinner and YUMMY brunch

Tavalatta – also awesome Italian food

How to Cook a Wolf – haven’t been here, but is supposed to be awesome. 

 

 

areas to check out:

Capitol Hill (if you’re more of the hipster crowd.  it’s like Williamsburg Brooklyn in NYC)

Ballard (used to be a fishing town, getting gentrified, but it’s really cute)  You can also see the fishing boats like in "Deadliest Catch"  Has a fun Farmer’s Market on Sundays

West Seattle (Alki Beach) 

Golden Gardens Park/Beach – the closest thing we have to the fine sand beaches of California

Discovery Park – Seattle’s version of Central Park.  Has great hiking trails

Wallingford (has the best cupcake place called TROPHY (they’re doing my wedding cupcakes))

Pike’s Market

Seattle Center – Has the Space Needle, Children’s Museum, Experience Music Project Museum, Science Fiction Museum,Pacific Science Center

 

Make sure you enjoy the Washington Islands like Bainbridge Island, Mercer Island, Orcas Island, Lummey Island.  You take a ferry ride there, but they’re fun for a day trip.  Orcas is supposed to be great!

Vancouver is a little drive north

 

Hope this helps some!

I would also like to suggest Chez Shea in Pike Place Market.  I thought it was so romantic because I felt like I was in someone’s European home, especially since I think the hostess was one of the managers or owners (but unsure), and the service was great.  However, I went there several years ago, and the ownership changed since then, but I hear it’s still good. 

A lot of people recommended Canlis as a great romantic restaurant with an extensive wine list.

I heard the Alexis Hotel is also a great hotel.  I would also suggest the Edgewater.  My sister stayed there and loved it.  It’s along the waterfront.  

ArtWalk in Pioneer Square – If you’re there on the first Thursday of the month, you can walk around to different galleries in Pioneer Square and check out their artwork for free.

Also, if you have enough time, get a ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, BC, walk around the gardens (like Butchart Gardens or Hartley Castle) and have afternoon tea. The ferry takes you right into downtown, so you don’t necessarily need a car. If you have time, stay at a bed and breakfast there also.  My fiance and I will be staying at Amore by the Sea after our wedding.  Haven’t been there yet, but it sounds lovely.

Seattle and the Pacific Northwest is a lovely area.  Hope you have fun!
