The Edgewater made its mark in Seattle history as the place The Beatles stayed when they came through on tour in 1964. Other rock stars (and those who like to travel like rock stars) have since stayed at the Edgewater, choosing it for its singular location on Pier 67 perched over the waters of Puget Sound. The public spaces make design references to the Pacific Northwest, with natural wood and stone everywhere. A fire and water fountain graces the main entrance. Waterfront rooms have sunset views that are nothing short of spectacular, and all the rooms are well-appointed, with gas fireplaces and spa-style bathrooms.

The Seattle Waterfront has been undergoing a revitalization over the last decade. The Olympic Sculpture Park spills into Myrtle Edwards Park; monumental works of public art are on display, and a trail that runs along Elliott Bay is popular with walkers and bikers. Cruise ships and the Victoria Clipper, a hydrofoil that makes runs up to Victoria, Canada, leave from the nearby Port of Seattle. South of the hotel is Seattle’s touristy waterfront with day cruises of the harbor, lots of seafood restaurants (some with takeout counters), and the small but beautifully redone Seattle Aquarium.
