Where Our Bellman Goes for Dinner and a View

– Brett B., Bellman

“Carve out an afternoon to ride the water taxi to west Seattle’s Marination Ma Kai – an all-day dining spot with Hawaiian and Korean fusion cuisine. Marination Ma Kai is connected to a little dock in Alki, right where the ferry docks. They have the best fried rice in Seattle and amazing views of Elliott Bay.”

Our Catering Manager’s Favorite Neighbourhood Farmers Market

– Andrea I., Director of Events

“You have to check out the West Seattle Farmers Market. I always have a breakfast sandwich in the market with a Stumptown coffee in Cupcake Royale or a kombucha on tap. On the way out, you should swing by Bakery Nouveau and get one of everything.”

The Best Museum in Town According to Our In-Room Dining Server

– Babucar Fatty, In-Room Dining Server

“Washington is known for aviation. The Museum of Flight has over 160 air and spacecraft, including crafts from the original Boeing Aircraft Factory, and it’s the largest independent nonprofit air and space museum in the world. I love taking a look at the full-scale airplanes – like the Lockheed M-21 Blackbird, the fastest air-breathing aircraft ever built. The first Thursday of every month is free!”

Where Our Assistant Engineering Manager Spends Her Time Outside

– Roxanne Gunnells, Assistant Engineering Manager

“Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park, just a 40-minute drive from the Hotel, has such a variety of amenities – boat launches, walking trails, tennis courts and picnic areas. If you’re visiting during the summer, grab a picnic from the Hotel or goodies from Pike Place Market to enjoy a day of lakeside adventure just outside the city.”
