Nestled between Queen Anne and Downtown, this neighborhood is the perfect location. It's in walking distance to major sites including the Waterfront but has the quietness of the residential areas. Lots of cafes and restaurants!

Belltown is my favorite neighborhood in Seattle. It is close to all the good bars and restaurants with the beautiful water nearby and great sights, like the Space Needle and the boardwalk. This area is hard to beat.

Our first time staying in Belltown. How fun an refreshing. Close to everything and such personality here. Met some locals at the dog park and wandered the neighborhood. There are some lost souls wandering the street but it always felt safe. We are making this our spot to stay when visiting Seattle.

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

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
