Stay in Seattle or outskirts and drive in?

Jump to last reply

I have never been to this area, and have just begun studying up on the area. Using google maps and other resourses, I now have an idea of how Seattle looks like (well, the downtown area anyway).

I was surprised to see how crowded (cluttered?) the area appears to be. In fact, even where the more expensive hotels are located, it almost was like this was more a commercial business area. But then again, I guess that's what downtown areas are for. I just didn't expect the top hotels to be the same area.

Anyway, is it worth it to stay in this area, or should we stay in the outskirts and drive in? Maybe it's nicer than what it appears on some of these mapping websites sites.
