Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Seattle area.
One of the amazing things about Seattle is that you can come here when the rest of the Pacific Northwest is hip deep in snow, and there not only will be no snow here, but it also will feel as if a palm tree might be able to survive. Driving over from Spokane on I-90 for a weekend trip in the dead of winter, as you cross the ice-encrusted Snoqualmie Pass across the summit of the Cascade mountains which bisect the state of Washington from north to south, then start down on the western side towards the Pacific coast, it feels as though you are making a slow descent from some Arctic region into Shangri-La. The area is warmed by the same Gulf Stream as London, Boston and Tokyo, via Puget Sound, even though it is a good ways inland from the Pacific Ocean. Seattle's open air farmers' market is not to be missed, especially the locally caught seafood, which is among the best in the world. It is perhaps the proximity to Alaska, where you probably have seen pictures of those enormous fruits and vegetables, or
perhaps the volcanic soil, but the fruit and other produce here is incredibly delicious and healthy looking, and you should find time to visit a few of the vineyards in the Seattle area whose wine is becoming world famous. Seattle does get a lot of rain, but contrary to the myths, it does not rain here all the time. In fact, Seattle is quite beautiful year round, and the view of Mount Rainier and the forested scenery to the east, as well as the interplay of Elliott Bay and Lake Washington which surround Seattle, create one of the more geographically beautiful metropolitan areas in the world.
