The 6 Best Hotels for Families in Seattle

Four Seasons Hotel Seattle – luxury

Suites are large and beautiful and will comfortably sleep a family of 4. 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 all within a short walk.

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. Phone: +1 (206) 728-1000

Silver Cloud Hotel Stadium – moderate

Great location for Seahawks, Mariners, or Sounders games. (But a little out of the way 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 at the Silver Cloud in South Lake Union. Phone: +1 (206) 204-9800

Residence Inn – moderate

1 and 2 bedroom suites sleep 4 to 6. Full kitchen, nice pool, free breakfast, and happy hour. Walking distance to the very cool (and kid-friendly) Museum of History and Industry and the streetcar to downtown goes right by the hotel. Phone: +1 (206) 624-6000
Seattle Residence Inn with Kids

The Maxwell Hotel Seattle – moderate

Fun, family-friendly hotel with lots of character. Junior Suites have 2 queen beds and a sofa bed. There’s neighborhood feel to the surroundings and the hotel is 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 small but still nice for a dip. Pizza joint connected to the hotel.
