Top Cities in Washington

Washington Hotel Guide

If you are seeking a vacation destination in a city that features clean air, clear views of the mountains and the sea, plenty of green spaces, and an exciting urban core, you should consider making reservations at one of the Washington hotels located within the boundaries of the state's Emerald City. Guests of Seattle have access to abundant galleries, an array of fine-dining options and many opportunities to experience vibrant night life. If you're a gastronomy fan who appreciates healthy, locally sourced cuisine, you'll appreciate Seattle's many farm-to-fork establishments. If you happen to be enjoying a stay in one of the hotels in Washington during the middle of May, make sure that you get in on the shipments of Copper River Salmon from Alaska if you're a seafood lover.

Seattle isn't the only place for those seeking Washington hotel deals for the purpose of taking a vacation in the Pacific Northwest. Prices tend to be lower as you move away from the Emerald City except for top vacation spots such as the Cascade Mountain Range and the San Juan Islands. However, both the San Juans and the Cascades are highly seasonal destinations that frequently feature discount rates during the off-season. Early-to-middle spring is an excellent time to look for a cheap Washington hotel deal in the Cascades or the San Juan Islands, and you can also find rooms at special prices during the latter part of autumn.

If you are seeking a true Pacific Northwest ambiance but would prefer not to spend your vacation in Seattle's urban environment, cheap hotel deals in Washington small towns, such as Bellingham, will provide you with an authentic Northwest experience without the crowds. Bellingham is one of the best places on the American coast to get a good look at Pacific Ocean marine life, and many travellers who book Washington hotel packages in coastal communities go on whale watching expeditions during the daytime. Small roadside seafood shacks in coastal Washington are excellent sources of fresh fish caught by local fishermen.

Washington is also a small enough state that visitors can base themselves in a central location and take day trips to the places that they want to see. Ferries frequently go between the mainland and the San Juan Islands, and the Cascades are only about an hour's drive from Seattle and other cities along the Interstate-5 corridor.
