Best Seattle Hotels for Families

Updated on October 17, 2010

If you are planning a family vacation in Seattle, choosing a hotel that will cater to the needs of all family members will help make your trip more memorable. Here are the best Seattle hotels for families.

Comfort Suites Downtown/Seattle Center

Comfort Suites are a great choice for families because of its proximity to the Seattle Center. A fairground, park, and entertainment center, the Seattle Center is sure to have lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy. The Seattle Center started with the 1962 World’s Fair, also known as the “Century 21 Exposition.” This fair gave visitors a glimpse of Tomorrow, and today the Seattle Center still brings in visitors who enjoy its exhibitions and public events. The Space Needle, located in the Seattle Center, gives guests a great view of the Seattle skyline with fine dining. The Children’s Museum, the Pacific Science Center, and Experience Music Project are also great activities for families. The Comfort Suites are located in the heart of this area, making all of this accessible to you and your family.

MarQueen Hotel

This hotel is a few blocks from the Seattle Center, putting it within walking distance of the attractions. This hotel is a converted apartment building and so the suites are spacious and include kitchenettes—perfect especially for families traveling with small children. If you are looking for a hotel with charm and history, this is a great choice.

Westin Seattle

The Westin is the tallest hotel in Seattle and offers guests spectacular views. This hotel has a pool, which is uncommon among downtown hotels. The Westin is located next to the Washington State Convention Center, Pike Place Market and the Space Needle, making the location convenient. The Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges are visible from the hotel and fine restaurants serve northwest cuisine.

The atrium of this hotel has jungle décor, including a swimming pool and whirlpool spas. This gives the kids a great entertainment option right inside the hotel! Its proximity to the airport will also make the logistics of your trip easier.
