Seattle Hotels

$100-200. Any recommendations?

A female is coming to visit me next month and I'd like to find a modern, affordable hotel for a night. Nothing too extravagant. Simplicity is key, but not Motel 6 simple. I like classy hotels. I plan on getting gussied up and taking her out to a nice restaurant, so I'd rather not return to a dumpy hotel room.

Thanks.

    I stayed at the Seattle Hilton, the cost was split a few ways but I believe you can get a room for $200 a night. It's a typical room, but the lobby is nice and has a bar, really easy to get to from the freeway, smack in the middle of downtown and elevators go straight outside which is kinda neat.

    If you look around I wouldn't be surprised if you find a promotional coupon for lower rates.

    P.S. I hear great things about the Fairmont Olympic, but according to Google it is $262. I guess it depends on how bad you want anal.

    We stayed at the Red Lion and really enjoyed it. Very nice decor and we had a room with a hot tub for under a hundred.

    I'm tempted to use Hotwire and see what I can get.

    If you want a little flavor, try the Ace Hotel in Belltown.

    I stayed at the Mediterranean Inn http://www.mediterranean-inn.com/index.html. Was a nice place, nothing extravagant. It was attached to a Starbucks, had a Safeway around the corner, was just a comfortable place to be.

    I have stayed at the Red Lion Portland, and it was pretty classy for the price. I would check this out. Nothing too spectacular, but it's no motel 8.

    Just perpetuating my mancrush on Esh. I've stayed at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, and it was a very good experience. They're very focused on brand management and user experience, so I have no reason to think Seattle wouldn't be good, too.

    My room in the Seattle location had the head of the bed resting against a clear glass wall. The glass wall was the back of the shower. :winky:

    Damn. That sounds bloody spectacular.

    *edit* I like it. I really like it. But, over $200 w/ tax for one night is a bit expensive.

    Hey, this is over in Lower Queen Anne. Be warned, due to it's proclivity to said Safeway there's going to be some truck noise beginning at around 6:30AM - 7:00AM and continuing sporadically until noon. Said trucks won't be idling, but they will be driving past and backing up right there on the north side of the building, since that's where Safeway's loading dock lies.

    That said, next month will probably mean that she can shut the window, so it probably won't be too bad. And there's a few neat places to go within a few blocks--Shiki, The Melting Pot, Easy Street Records (if she's a music fan), The Mecca (if she's a dive fan), Uptown Cinema, Tini Bigs, Bandit's Bar... hell, I think Twice Sold Tales might still be there as well. It's also 50 feet from a major bus arterial, with routes to Downtown, Belltown, Ballard and Capitol Hill.
