Hotel Ballard: A Small-Town Vibe in the Big City of Seattle

What Do the Rooms Include?

The standard rooms at Hotel Ballard are elegant with patterned carpet, blackout drapes, and an upholstered headboard on the cushy king-sized bed. A desk by the window offers views of the city and the Olympic Mountains. The marble bathroom with tiled shower and lighted mirrors adds to the luxury feel.

What Amenities/Features Does the Hotel Ballard Offer?

The hotel's private underground parking garage makes it easy to stash your car when you arrive. Check out a book from the hotel library and read indoors or on the Olympic Rooftop Pavilion. On cold nights, the pavilion has a fireplace lit to stay cozy. The hotel fitness center  has a warm atmosphere thanks to brickwork walls and wood beams. Guests can take advantage of two indoor lap pools as well as fitness classes and exercise studios.

How Much Will a Stay at Hotel Ballard Cost?

A room with one king-sized bed or two double beds runs about $259 a night, which is a decent rate for luxury boutique hotels in Seattle. Upgrade to a suite for $339 a night, or a courtyard suite with view for $359 a night.

What’s There to Do Nearby?

The Hotel Ballard is the only hotel in the Ballard district of Seattle. In this quiet neighborhood, you'll find local, independently owned shops and a farmer's market on Sundays. Walk 15 minutes to the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, a park by Salmon Bay where you can watch the fish jump in the summer.

What’s the Bottom Line?

For a local, small-town vibe that isn't too far from downtown Seattle, try the Hotel Ballard. The great service and high-class amenities here make it one of the top hotels in Seattle.
