Stayed at the Moore boutique hotel, had a great deal on parking (no in-out privileges) but at 15$ a day (reg 36$/day), we weren't about to move the car. And gladly we didn't need to. Everything is a delightful and enjoyable walk from the Moore. The Moore was terrific, we spent the extra $$ to stay in the king suite... More

Thin walls u can hear the footstep upstairs, room were clean. You get 2 can pop, microwave pop corn... More

We did the Belltown Food Tour. Leslie was an excellent guide. We sampled delicious seafood, sushi, cocktails and dessert. We had food and some local history. Highly recommended.

What a cool little area just before downtown, loads of bars, restaurants and boutique shops! Everyone must visit Crocodile bar where famous bands such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam have played

Due to it's proximity to the Pike Place Market, waterfront cruise ship terminal, and Olympic Sculpture Garden, its likely Seattle visitors will make their way through Belltown. They will find a somewhat ordinary neighborhood of older low brick buildings and nondescript high-rise condos. Long a nexus for social service agencies, Belltown is Seattle's dumping ground for the mentally ill and... More

Lots of great restaurants in the neighborhood, but some shady looking characters as well. I think Belltown is trying to find it's way, turning from a vagrant neighborhood to one of condos and fashionable people. If you go, be sure you have a destination, and after dark take a cab.

My wife and I stayed here for the summer and enjoyed it. We are moving because we want a yard and a grocery store less than an hour away :P.

The highlights of Belltown for me are Macrina Bakery (my husband's favorite thing is the Turtle Brownie - amazing, and my favorite is the Monkey Bread or sour cherry lemon pound cake.) Buy the Macrina cookbook and bake up some of the recipes yourself if you are ambitious - they are worth it. Also entertain a friend or client at... More
