Seattle Hotels With Destination-Worthy Restaurants

AnnaMaria Stephens | February 01, 2018

Let's face it, hotel restaurants don't always cut it, especially in a food-obsessed city like Seattle. That's not the case at these places, though. The hotel restaurants we've rounded up are destination-worthy, whether it's for the epic views or cutting-edge cuisine. More proof that they're top-notch? They attract locals and visitors alike. These are the best.


Hotel Ballard

Don’t miss the charred octopus with hazelnut romesco--it’s divine! The restaurant also features a good wine list and an au courant cocktail menu (sherry is the current star).
