I don’t live in WA, but I took a trip to Seattle in 2007 and LOVED ‘Inn at the Market’. It was a fantastic location, adorable boutique hotel, staff was friendly and helpful. I thought it was a great location, so many places were accesible by walking or hopping on the bus.

When you call the hotels to inquire their wedding block rates, be sure to ask to speak to the sales office. Do you want a boutique hotel or a chain hotel? My guests stayed at Hotel Andra and the Alexis Hotel. Our rates were super great bc our wedding date was during their ‘slow’ season and it was also a destination wedding as 95% of our guests were coming from out of town. We occupied 87 rooms at Alexis Hotel!!!

  • Single Queen and/or King Room = $119/night
  • King Delux = $139/night
  • Queen/Queen = $139/night

I also suggest looking in to Hotel Max, they offer some really great rates as well.

Good Luck Laughing

I Live in Federal Way (which is about 20 minutes from downtown seattle). Unfortunatly, staying at hotel in the heart of Seattle is going to be expensive, no matter what day or month you stay there.

We have family members that work at The Marriott & Hilton, but even with the discounts, we still pay $100 a night! The Seattle Marriott Waterfront is vert nice, we have stayed there a few times. If you aren’t too picky, I would recommend The Best Western or La Quinta. I know they aren’t the “top of the line” hotels, but we stayed at the La Quinta for my birthday for $79 a night. It was nice, from what I remember (23rd birthday..felt like my 21st all over again)

If you and your guests are willing to venture out maybe 10-15 minutes away, Tukwila would be the place to stay. Less then a 10 minute drive to the airport, and maybe a 15 minute drive to downtown. Or you could be adventurous and take LIGHT RAIL with everyone, that would be fun. Tukwila has shopping, food, entertainment..pretty much everything you need, and would be cheaper then Seattle Hotels.

Hope this helps! Smile

When I first moved here, I stayed at Silvercloud hotels.  There are a few of them around town.  I actually love their hotels.  They offer a complimentary shuttle to the space needle and stuff and I think they are reasonably priced.  You said your venue on eastlake.. which I think is near lake union.  I work right near there and it’s a nice area because it’s right near the lake and you can see the space needle from there.  Not a lot of things to do in that area but if you stay at the Silver Cloud that’s on eastlake, they have shuttles, like I mentioned above.

Parking can be a pain in downtown seattle, so shuttles are the way to go.

My husband and I just stayed at the Courtyard Marriott downtown and it was a lovely hotel that was very affordable. $94 for the night, and a very modern room, obviously recently renovated, with all the amenities. It was one of the best prices we could find for being downtown.

We reserved 10 rooms in Hotel Max ($115 a night) and 7 in Red Lion ($139) they were very centrally located and our guests all had a good time exploring downtown from there. My bridesmaids and I got our hair done at Swink Style Bar which is across the street from Hotel Max, so it was really easy for me to get ready in one of their rooms after getting my hair and makeup done. 

Hotel Max’s rooms are on the small side, and the hallways are dark. It has a boutique-y and unique feel to it, that’s why we chose both Hotel Max and Red Lion. I didn’t see the rooms at the Red Lion but the people who stayed there seemed happy with it. I know the other thing you need to be aware of is how much each place charges for parking, that can jack the price per night up really high.

Have you used hotelplanner.com? You put in your event, dates, location and desired price and different hotels bid on your contract! It was super easy, free, and we were able to find a place for our guests that was cheap ($129 a night) and walking distance to all those fun things downtown. Seriously – it saved me so much time!

The rates that some of the girls have given you are VERY reflective of the time of year- rates in August are going to be expensive.  We had blocks at the W Hotel and the Hotel Monaco for $140-$160, and that was in July- however, our venue was the W, and we did our post wedding brunch at the Hotel Monaco so we got some deals.

I actually think that the Residence Inn and the Courtyard by Marriott, both by Lake Union, are great hotels and are convenient enough for people who want to take a day to explore the city…. they can easily get cabs that will be cheap to downtown, or walk to catch the SLUT (South Lake Union Trolley) and that goes down to Westlake center right?  Their rates are typically lower to begin with than the downtown properties, so you might have better luck there.

Someone told me that the Maxwell Hotel doesn’t do group blocks anymore, but it’s what we used for our 12/31/10 wedding, so I’m not sure that that is true. $129/night, free parking, everyone loved the hotel. Close to lower Queen Anne and Seattle Center.
