Bellevue, the largest suburb of the sprawling metropolis of Seattle, sees more than its fair share of the 19.2 million annual visitors to the area. Located just 10 miles outside of Seattle, Bellevue offers visitors a perfect combination of close proximity to the sights and attractions of Seattle, without the high accommodation prices.
In Bellevue, visitors can enjoy a quieter stay, taking advantage of its 1,700 acres of parks and open spaces with nearly 40 miles of trails designated for walking or biking.
Bellevue is home to many high-end and boutique hotels at a fraction of the price you’d pay in Seattle, especially if you plan to visit during an off-season. Here are just a few of them:
Located in the business district of Bellevue, Hilton Bellevue offers affordable luxury for all. Starting at just $200 per night, (although bargain hunters can find stays for as low as $150 per night), guest rooms at the Hilton Bellevue are well-appointed and come equipped with all the comforts of home. Inside the rooms, you’ll find coffee makers, plush bathrobes, wet bars, and jetted tubs, but take a few steps outside your room and enjoy the shared amenities of an outdoor pool or the 24-hour fitness center.
The concierge at the front desk can assist you with concert tickets, local area attractions, and other requests to help make your stay in Bellevue a success.
