Last month, during my long weekend getaway to Seattle, WA I had the pleasure of staying at The Edgewater Hotel. I felt like as soon as I walked in that I was in a comfy cozy cabin that was comforting. The Edgewater is the only waterfront hotel in downtown Seattle which gave breathtaking views at all hours of the day. You have the Olympic Mountains in the background and you’re looking directly at Elliott Bay. The Edgewater is a Noble House Hotel who specializes in luxury one of a kind hotel which translated to The Edgewater where no detail was overlooked.
About The Edgewater
The Edgewater was created to be a beautiful hotel from the beginning. It was built in 1962 for The World Fair (like the Space Needle) and to this day, is a favorite for locals and frequent Seattle visitors. The design and decor in the Edgewater give off the Pacific Northwest feel.
The hotel is such a popular hotel that rock and roll legends have stayed including Beatles, Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Neil Young, Frank Zappa, Blondie, Jewel, David Bowie, Emmy Lou Harris, Iggy Pop, Jessica Simpson, Rod Stewart, Willie Nelson, and I’m sure there’s more. To this day, there’s a Pearl Jam and Beatles room in the hotel. I didn’t get to check them out, but I heard they are amazing. You can even rent a record player from the front desk to jam out in your room!
My favorite part of the rooms at the Edgewater? The fireplace in your room. There was nothing like listening to the rain and hearing the crackling of the fireplace as you fall asleep. I will warn you, the seagulls think you’ll feed them. So if you like to keep your stay peaceful and quiet, don’t feed the birds!
Seattle’s Waterfront Restaurant
Located in the Edgewater is their restaurant, Six Seven which was absolutely delicious. We ate there for lunch when we first landed and we had no idea what to expect. Needless to say, we loved it. They have a great selection of local wines (drink local, right?) which we indulged in. The restaurant has beautiful waterfront views and a beautiful fireplace.
We split the Pacific Northwest Cesar and had roasted tomato bisque. I was dying to try the truffle fries, but somehow I resisted.
Pro Tip: they have a great happy hour, don’t miss out!
The Best Hotel in Downtown Seattle
The staff was all friendly, from the bellmen to the front desk crew, to the wait staff in the restaurant, and even the gift shop/coffee shop. The guest rooms are either city side or waterside, I’d recommend going with the Waterview because chances are you’ll be exploring the city all day. All the rooms have a European-spa style bathroom with a glass-encased shower which I thought was such fun.
I highly recommend staying at The Edgewater for both locals and visitors. At the very least, go for a dinner or cocktail.
