For the Leisure Traveler

Seattle - the Emerald City - can qualify as one of the most beautiful places in the world-and all of it is just steps from your door. You can create the perfect day, visiting the world-famous Pike Place Market, followed by a walk through the outdoor Olympic Sculpture Park, and the view from the top of the Space Needle at Seattle Center.

If you're a sports fan, our concierge will help you get tickets for the NFC-champion Seahawks, Mariners, Sounders, Seattle Storm games or to local University championship-ranked teams. Or plan a day in the outdoors with a trip to the islands or into the mountains.
