Hotel Amenities to Consider on your Seattle Trip


Seattle is the largest city in Washington and deemed one of the greenest cities of the world. Tourists who plan to enjoy urban comforts and lush surroundings visit the city because it receives less precipitation than New York. If one visits Seattle, Pike Place Market is a must on the itinerary. It is the oldest farmers market in the U.S., and where Starbucks had their first store.

With the city as a prime destination for travelers, Seattle’s major districts have hundreds of hotels to choose from. Each hotel has its own way of catering to its guests and ensuring top-notch amenities over their competitors. Basic amenities include custom bed linens, spacious bathrooms, flat-screen televisions, high-speed internet, and fine toiletries. For a more relaxing getaway, here is a list of other amenities to consider when booking a hotel stay in Seattle.


Airport Shuttle Service

After a tiring trip, the best thing you could wish for is to just jump on your shuttle and be transferred from the airport to your hotel. Traveling from the terminal to your hotel upon arrival on your own is sometimes stressful. For a minimal fee, Quality Inn and Suites Hotel will take care of your transfers from Seattle Tacoma International Airport to the hotel. You can simply call the hotel to schedule a pickup from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.


Rooftop Deck

Impeccable views of the surroundings on your destination are best viewed from above. The Inn at the Market’s rooftop deck can serve as a venue for a morning cup of coffee or sip delicate wines during sundown. The roof deck, apart from being one of the closest viewpoints to the waterfront, provides a view of ferries crossing Puget Sound. Furthermore, marvel a different angle of Pike Place Market which is just blocks away from the hotel.

Complimentary Bicycle Checkouts

Burke Gilman Trail is a paved 27-mile multi-use recreational path that winds through some of Seattle’s amazing neighborhoods and forest areas. To enjoy the trail, stay at the Watertown Hotel, which offers complimentary bicycle checkout for their guests to experience the lush scenery of the city. What’s great about the bicycle program is that it has no time limit, so you can create your own bike itinerary and route. You can always avail yourself of the added services from the front desk, which include locks and helmets.


Fitness Center and Indoor Pool

To be in shape and stick with your workout routines, your hotel should have a fitness center. The Courtyard by Marriott Seattle Downtown Lake Union’s fitness center has cardio equipment, weights, treadmills, stair steppers, and stationary bikes. If swimming is a fitness activity for you, the hotel has also an indoor pool that is great for some laps.


Spa Service

After a day out in major districts of Seattle, the perfect way to end the day is a soothing and relaxing massage. Hotel Monaco Seattle’s spa service comes to your room which you can schedule ahead. They use Kerstin Florian organic body and skin care products that will surely nurture your senses on whatever treatment you prefer from hot stone massage, body wrap, aromatherapy facial, or chamomile foot soak.
