What are the most popular neighborhoods in Seattle?

I will be traveling to Seattle, and since it's my first time, I really don't know much about what each neighborhood has to offer. What is your favorite neighborhood and what are the best hotels to stay at around there and why?

    You are right that every neighborhood has it's own flare. Ballard Neighborhood is known for the locks and great seafood. Magnolia has amazing views of Puget Sound and a few nice waterfront restaurants. Discovery Park is great there too! View Ridge is the other side of town with views of Lake Washington. Warren G. Magnuson Park is great lakeside park there. Fremont Neighborhood is THE place for the Sunday Market and Thai food. It's on the canal and known for the more "free spirited" bunch in Seattle. Capitol Hill Neighborhood is cool restaurants and theaters - more noisy and busy with students from the University - as is the U-District. Downtown is OK to stroll some of the main sites during the day, but it practically shuts down at night except for a few good restaurants. Don't miss Pike Place Market, Take a ferry ride across the sound for amazing views for really cheap. Good luck!

    Connor, tough question!


    I've thought about this for a day, and have tried to think of how to summarize each neighborhood without getting stereotypical or cheesy. Here's my best shot.

    Capitol Hill Neighborhood - good food and bars, great for dancing, lots of gay clubs

    Downtown - Tourist haven, mostly dead at night except for a few jazz/live music clubs

    Belltown - good bars and food, especially along 2nd... can be a violent neighborhood, especially outside the nightclubs

    Ballard Neighborhood - My favorite, full of great food, good drinks, and general hipsterness

    Fremont Neighborhood - viva la revolution! Great for food and divey bars; where the true hipsters live.


    Those are the "big 5," at least. Hope that helps you figure out where you might like to visit! If it helps, I live in Belltown, usually eat out in Belltown, Cap Hill or Ballard, and occasionally visit Fremont. I work Downtown.

    To the main areas I would add Columbia City. Royal Room is a great music venue there and nearby are several good restaurants.

    Also if you like a bit off the path Georgetown has some fun places. If you want hip restaurants and bars go for Ballard Neighborhood or Fremont Neighborhood.

    Great city have fun.

    Most answers you get to this will probably say Capitol Hill Neighborhood and they would probably be right. It's young, hip, great bars and restaurants and shops too. It's dirtier and louder, but that's what comes with young, hip and close to downtown usually. But if you want something a step or two quieter I would try Ballard Neighborhood or perhaps Fremont Neighborhood. Wallingford is close to those two but a neighborhood removed, which can be nice. West Seattle is even further, but has lots of great places to visit, a shockingly good restaurant scene and a distinct local vibe. It's awesome that Airbnb and Vrbo open up so many of these neighborhoods now that don't have as many hotels.

    Just let me know if you have any questions and good luck!

    Lower Queen Anne is a great area to stay in due to its proximity to the waterfront and the Seattle Center. Downtown is also great because it is close to the Seattle Art Museum, the waterfront, and Pike Place Market. Otherwise, you may find yourself wandering through Capitol Hill Neighborhood, the International District, and Ballard Neighborhood, but most of the hotels are located in the downtown area (if you want to stay elsewhere, try AirBnB type websites. There are a few new hotels in Ballard that are supposed to be really cute and Ballard is a neighborhood with a lot of shopping and a great Sunday market.

    Hi Connor!

    Capitol Hill Neighborhood in Seattle is by FAR my favorite neighborhood! It's SUPER eclectic, very trendy restaurants and bars, and just a great place to get a coffee and people watch! Some very interesting shopping also!! If you're staying downtown you can easily walk there or Uber. Uber is super popular in Seattle and really quick and easy (and cheap)! :-)

    Have a great time!

    Scotty

    Stay at the Inn at the Market. It's steps from Pike Place Market, a short walk to get to the waterfront or to the monorail to get to the Space Needle.

    Favorite places to eat, Mr. Gyros on North East 45th Street right next to the Hawaii General Store. Close to the airport in the Ramada Hotel is Ginger Palace Pan Asian Csn, the chicken wings are so good!
