Darlene, one of our corporate advisors from Arizona, was in town and, while here, she stayed at one of Seattle’s most iconic and historical hotels, The Edgewater.
In her own words, “it’s been over 10 years since I last stayed there, and I must say I think I liked the hotel even better now. The rooms are beautiful, and the staff are amazing!”
Here’s what she has to tell you:
We were quickly greeted by the front desk staff who were able to promptly get us into a room, even though we arrived a few hours before check in. They were able to put us in a beautiful room on the 3rd floor – which used to be the top floor of the hotel, so all of the rooms on that level have beautiful, vaulted ceilings.
Each elevator ride was so fun as you never knew what beautiful scene was going to be on the big screen in there, from floating jellyfish to amazing Seattle skyline views.
Our guest room was spacious with a gas fireplace in the corner and 2 chairs and a footstool that looked like a bear…so adorable. The bathroom was gorgeous with a natural stone shower and marble counter tops.
For lunch, we proceeded to the lovely Six Seven Restaurant downstairs. It was a bit breezy, but we decided to sit outdoors anyway, as it was a nice sunny day, and the waitress promptly went and grabbed us some blankets to lay on our laps.
It was such an amazing day to be on the Seattle waterfront that we did not want to leave!
After a nice stroll around the piers, we headed back to the hotel – it was finally time to say goodnight and to crawl into our very comfortable king-size bed.
Woke up refreshed and, of course, had to go down to the Six Seven Restaurant for breakfast for one last amazing meal before checking out.
I honestly cannot say enough great things about this hotel. I have stayed at a lot of hotels over the years, and I really must say this is my favorite.
It is a Seattle treasure!

Aside from the incredible Six Seven Restaurant within the property, and The Brim Coffee Shop, walk along the piers to eat amazing seafood, visit the Aquarium, ride the Seattle Great Wheel, and take in that Seattle Waterfront.
If that’s not inviting enough, you are close to the Seattle Public Market and all that downtown has to offer.
