Provide a 1-3 liner highlighting your experience! 

As a girl from the Midwest, currently soaking up the SoCal lifestyle, I was eager to experience the “Emerald City.” We took advantage of Seattle’s walkable distances to explore not only it’s urban attractions, but also the natural beauty surrounding the city.  

Words to describe what you felt when you first arrived:

Upon arrival, we were greeted by an incredible view of a snowcapped Mt. Rainer. It’s imposing size on the city’s skyline left us wide eyed and filled with excitement to begin exploring Seattle.

With whom would you recommend staying at this hotel?

The Hotel offers a quiet and soothing atmosphere perfect for couples and families with older children.  

Tempt us: Name the most special place you discovered on this trip.

After taking a ferry to Bainbridge Island, we sat on the edge of the water, listening to the water wash up on the side of the nearby boats. The mountains on the other side reflected on the surface of the water making it look as though there were two skies, one laying on top of another. The serenity of the place was almost palpable.

 What’s the best time of year to go in your opinion?

 Summer

Anything else to add?

 Eating breakfast at the Biscuit Bitch was one of the highlights of our trip. Get there early or get ready to wait in line at this great local spot.
