About Seattle:
Where to stay, what to do
Seattle, Washington skyline
Most of our clients are located in greater Seattle, but many come from farther away. Welcome to the city that’s raised coffee, books and fine dining to a higher (some might say obsessive) standard. Here are a few of the things that truly make Seattle Seattle:

Pike Place Public Market – dodge a tossed salmon or pick up some cross-stitched goeduck hot pads at the cities’ oldest farmer’s market a few blocks from downtown. Local vendors ply their fish, flowers, fruit, vegetables, and all manner of handcrafted items with the wide expanse of Elliott Bay as their backdrop. The world’s first Starbucks is still here, and still open for business.

Waterfront – the third largest predatory shark awaits you at the Seattle Aquarium , and that’s no lawyer joke. Farther south at Pier 50, you can hop a ferry to Bainbridge or Bremerton for scenic vistas of the Sound, the city and the mountains. Or walk north from the Aquarium, sample some clam chowder on the way, and visit the free Olympic Sculpture Park. Be sure to ride the waterfront streetcar back.

The Seattle Art Museum – The Hammering Man marks the spot: he’s a very tall and busy blacksmith standing at the doorway to Seattle’s newly-expanded art museum. Other cultural venues: Seattle Asian Art Museum atop Capitol Hill, a short taxi ride away. Benaroya Hall, home of the Seattle Symphony, also features contemporary musical artists and lectures from all disciplines. A few blocks away you can visit The Seattle Public Library, designed by renowned Dutch architect Rem Koolhass.

Between  Belltown and Queen Anne hill lies the Seattle Center. Built in 1962 to host the Century 21 Exposition (our World’s Fair), this Center comprises 74 acres full of concert halls, pavilions, sports arenas, fountains, entertainments, the signature Space Needle and Frank Gehry’s free-form Experience Music Project (which also houses a science fiction museum). If you’re a fan of George Jetson, ride there and back on the monorail.

On the other side of Seattle Center is the Pacific Science Center, two live theatre venues and McCaw Hall, home of the Pacific Northwest Ballet and the Seattle Opera.
