Are you close to downtown and major Seattle attractions?
That is the beauty of Seattle Hill House - our location is considered downtown Seattle, but also a neighborhood area - the best of both worlds! You can virtually walk to all major attractions such as Pike Place Market, The Waterfront and Piers, and the Space Needle - all within less than two miles! Or you can hop on a bus - our bus drivers are the friendliest around!
How close are you to the busline?
Seattle Hill House could not be closer. Across the street and three houses down is the main line that takes you almost anywhere you want to go. When you return you are dropped off right next door.
Are there good restaurants within walking distance?
Absolutely! From delicious fresh fish to Asian cuisine to fun ethnics like Ethiopian and Thai, you can definitely find a wide variety of choices all within an easy 6 to 8 block range - perfect for an afternoon or evening stroll.
What about parks or museums?
Volunteer Park is right up the hill, a historic landmark of Seattle with acres of beauty that once housed the Seattle Art Museum and now contains it's sister the Asian Art Museum. Definintely worth a visit.
What if I am travelling for business - how far are you from the Convention Center?
We are approximately 1/2 mile away - an easy walk or bus ride if you prefer and certainly easier than parking your car in the morning when time is an issue! We have many business travellers that choose us over an impersonal hotel. They love the conveniences we offer and the friendly personal services that make it feel a bit more like home, especially when that is where they would really like to be.
What about fax machines, WIFI, a printer - do you have them?
We sure do! We have our own office "zone" set up for your convenience and WIFI throughtout the house. Breakfasts to go or early plates are available if your conferences begin before our hot service from 8am to 9:30 am each day.
Do you offer special rates for longer stays or AAA members?
Yes, depending upon the season and availability.
Do you work with special dietary needs?
You bet! We are extremely proud of our chef - truly five star - and he delights in making your experience a fabulous one. To that end we will work with your needs or limitations - just let us know.
Of course we have the standard products available in all rooms - shampoos, soaps, hair dryers, alarm clocks and iron and ironing board available on request. We offer one parking space per room at no cost, but unless you are travelling outside the city a car in Seattle is not a necessity. Seattle is very walkable and the public transportation is great - consider leaving the car at home and avoid the expense of parking, etc.
We also have the ability to cater onsite small events for 20-30 people indoors and larger events outdoors when the weather is good. In addition, we have access to an offsite venue that can host upwards of 100 for catered parties, seminars, family functions - you name it! Our chef is truly superb and we have a long history with the music industry in Seattle, which can be a definite plus when you are planning an event ory party. Let us customize something creative for you!
