6 Seattle Hotels With Standout Outdoor Spaces

AnnaMaria Stephens | February 06, 2018

If you're lucky enough to visit beautiful Seattle when the sun is shining, you'll want to soak up every ray. At these hotels with outdoor spaces, you can kick back and enjoy the fresh air, whether it's on a chaise lounge next to an infinity pool or sipping craft cocktails at a rooftop bar. If you want to live like the locals while you're here, you might even head outside in the drizzle.


Motif Seattle

Why it made the list

On the fifth floor of Motif, just beyond the hotel's Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails, is the largest outdoor patio in Downtown Seattle. Features include a fire pit, lots of seating, and sweeping views, as well as fun touches like shuffleboard, a bean-bag toss, and LED ping-pong. In the evenings, the outdoor space hosts a rotating lineup of live Seattle musicians and DJs.

Inn at the Market

Why it made the list

Don't worry if you can't afford to splurge on a waterside room at the Inn at the Market, which routinely lands on national "best of" lists. You can enjoy the same stunning views from the boutique hotel's spacious fifth-floor patio, which boasts plenty of comfortable seating and unparalleled views of Pike Place Market and the Puget Sound.

Willows Lodge

Why it made the list

The grounds at Willows Lodge are just as enticing as the rooms. Take a stroll through the hotel's lovely gardens or walk down to the Sammamish River on a path bordered by beautiful landscaping. There's also a heated relaxation pool nestled in a plant-filled courtyard, and it's a pleasant walk down the road to Chateau Ste. Michelle, a scenic wine-producing estate that hosts summer concerts.

Hotel Ballard

Why it made the list

At this charming boutique hotel near the Ballard waterfront, guests can chill out on the hotel's Olympic Rooftop Pavilion, a large terrace that features an outdoor fireplace, a bar, and sweeping city and water views. Before you book, ask if there are any scheduled events at the rooftop event space that will limit guest access. Unsurprisingly, it's a popular place for wedding receptions.

Salish Lodge & Spa

Why it made the list

The star attraction at this luxurious hotel is 270-foot Snoqualmie Falls. The views are magnificent from indoors but step outside and you can feel the mist from the water crashing below. Follow the hotel's paved path, lined by native landscaping, to enjoy spectacular scenic viewpoints. If you're in decent shape, you can even hike down a dirt trail to the base of the falls.

Four Seasons Hotel Seattle

Why it made the list

You'll be the envy of Instagram when you post pics from the Four Seasons' rooftop terrace, where an infinity pool seems to extend right into Elliott Bay. The pool area also features cushy chaise lounges, an outdoor fireplace, and a hot tub. During the summer, the hotel hooks guests up with lavender-scented chilled towels, sunscreen, sunglasses cleaning, and smoothies -- you can even indulge in a spa service while you relax in the sun.
