In today's new release of Curbed's Hotel 18 map, we're once again attacking the question, "Where should I stay in Seattle?" While our first version of this map included 38 choices, we've carefully editing this version down to 18. In this smaller, leaner selection, we've made some tough choices to bring you the best of the best, and only those hotels considered most essential via reader and expert recommendations.
Most of our Hotel 18 naturally end up downtown or close to the waterfront. However, if you want to find a good hotel outside of the luxury high-rise sector, you'll find options in Ballard, Fremont, Queen Anne and elsewhere, too.
We'll be updating the map again in due time, so if you have a favorite that wasn't included, please mention it in the comments or tip us for next time. If you spot a hotel unworthy of the Hotel 18 distinction, we want to hear about that, too.Read More
