Just west of I–5, the Seattle Hilton is a popular site for meetings, conventions, and the summer cruise set. The rooms are tasteful but nondescript—you'll be paying for a brand name here, reliable though it may be. Some rooms have views over the city to Elliott Bay in the distance. Providing excellent views of the city, the Top of the Hilton bar-restaurant serves well-executed salmon dishes and other local specialties for breakfast or lunch. An underground passage
connects the Hilton with the Rainier Square shopping concourse, the 5th Avenue Theater, and the Convention Center.
