After I found this attraction. On TripAdvisor we made it a point to visit the Columbia Center Sky Deck on our visit to the city. It was an easy walk from Pikes Market. If your walking from the Market you should take Pine St up to 5th Ave and then walk 5th over to Columbia. The incline was hardly noticeable taking this route and it only took about 15 minutes. Then on your way back it's all downhill!
Take the elevator to the 40th floor and stop in at the Starbucks. If you don't want to pay the $9/ adult and $6/ child admission the view from the panoramic Starbucks is free!
If your okay spending the money switch elevators and take it up to the 73rd floor.
The Sky Deck was amazing of course. They don't time how long your there so you don't feel rushed and it wasn't crowded at all (on a Friday afternoon). The views were breathtaking and definitely worth the money. You can see everything from up there. It was a great experience, the kids loved it, and we have great pictures that far surpass any the Space Needle could yield.
