Seattle Hotel Guide & Local Info
Seattle is known for many things including “grunge rock,” the Mariners, Microsoft (which was originally based in Albuquerque), and Starbucks Coffee. Known as the “Gateway to the Pacific” Northwest, Seattle enjoys a picturesque landscape with views of Mount Ranier, Lake Washington, and the Puget Sound. Of particular interest is the little known “Seattle Underground,” which now includes tours of the underground network of basements and passageways of old Seattle, which was once ground level storefronts covered over after the Seattle fire of 1889.
Seattle has many attractions including the nearby Cascades and Olympic Mountains, Washington’s highest peak Mt Rainier and hiking, mountain biking and skiing in winter. Seattle has housed several notable companies including Microsoft, Starbucks coffee, Amazon.com, with many other start-ups on the rise.
