SEATTLE - nightclubs, hotel and other info needed


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I need your help. I posted this question on the Ports of Call Board but I know that you can be of great help so I will also ask my questions here in case you don't check the US Ports of Call board often.

For a land trip, I will be in Seattle for a day (arriving at SEATAC airport at 8:30pm and leaving Seattle the following day at 4pm). Doing some research on this web site, I've seen the name of Best Western Executive Inn mentionned quite often. Is it the only hotel you would recommend or is there other hotels (not too expensive) you can think of? Also, what is the best nightclub in Seattle? I don't want to offend anyone but I would also like to know if Seattle is a safe place at night or not really? During the day, I plan on waking up somewhat early (8 am) and be ready to discover Seattle for the day. What are your suggestions. What are the Not To Be Missed things to see and do while I am there? What is Space Needle (sorry, I am a French Canadian girl who never heard of Space Needle).

Please help me plan my day so I can have a good time exploring this new city.

Thanks in advance!

jp2001 - The space needle is a tall tower-like thing that you can ride to the top of and look out over Seattle. There is a restaurant and gift shop at the top. Here is a website that tells you more, and a little about the area around it:

Also, since you are not in Seattle for very long I would definitly go to the Pike Place Market. Here is a site for that:

 

http://www.pikeplacemarket.org/about/ This site will also give you other ideas of what to do in Seattle. Walking along the waterfront by Ivars, Ye Old Curiosity Shop, etc. Is pretty cool, too. They are all not too far from each other, if you don't mind the walk. Or you can take a taxi.

Seattle is a safe city, definitely walking around during the day is perfectly fine, though late at night is never a good idea alone (In MY opinion).

 

The Pike Place Market, Space Needle (and Seattle Center), Seattle Aquarium, Pioneer Square and Experience Music Project are all things right in the city that you could do without a lot of driving in between.

 

Not sure what you want in a nightclub, but here is a link Seattle Clubs
