The Edgewater

2411 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98121, USA

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. 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.

Base Yourself At Seattle's Only Over-Water Hotel

I’d be hard pressed to suggest any other hotel to base yourself out of for explorations around the west central part of the city. As the only over-water hotel in the city, the Edgewater clearly has the edge (yes, pun-intended). It’s within easy walking distance from the awesome Elliot Bay Trail, some great eats in the Belltown neighborhood, as well as all the touristy attractions along the waterfront. The interior of the hotel is creatively decorated for a Pacific Northwest vibe with faux trees, branches, and nautical elements - and in the rooms a fuzzy bear footstool awaits your tired feet. We stayed in a waterside room and got to spy on the all the busy happenings of our neighbor - a cruise ship. Good times indeed.
