Visited Seattle for 3 days whilst staying with relatives in Vancouver. Got the bus from just north of the boarder right to our hotel. The service from Quick coach was excellent and well worth considering if you are in need of transportation from Seattle to Vancouver for a very good price. Stayed in the Best Western executive inn at Seattle centre. We choose this hotel as it was where the bus dropped us off and picked us up and also because of it's location (200 metres from the Space Needle) and would definitely recommend it. Visiting the Space Needle is obviously a must for any visit to Seattle. We bought a Seattle City Pass from the Space Needle ticket office for around $50 and this gave us entry to the Space Needle twice so we could go up in the day and in the evening which was great and included many other attraction e.g. Woodland park zoo, the aquarium, experience music project and a harbour tour. This City Pass if certainly worth looking into if you want to visit some of Seattles well known attractions. No visit to Seattle would be complete without walking up to Kerry park (around 15 minutes from Seattle centre) to see the wonderful and famous view of the city. On a nice day it is a fantastic place to be and the view of the city with Mount Rainier in the back ground is mind blowing. As a sports fan I to go to a sports game every time I visit North America and this time we went to see the Mariner play at Safeco field. It was a great evening as we got tickets for $50 in the Hit it Here cafe which where great seats and also included a $20 meal voucher. Having been to a number of sporting venues in particular Baseball across North America the experience at Safeco field in the Hit it Here cafe was definitely the best and well worth doing especially if you're not from North America and after a traditional American pass time. Seattle is particularly famous for being home to many famous international companies and for me visiting the very first Starbucks in Pike place market was a muct although there wasn't as much choice in beverages as there is in the UK oddly! Seattle is a magnificent city (one of my favourite in America) and very manageable with a nice, friendly and laid back atmosphere.
