by ccvisitWalking through the Seattle Marriot Waterfront's lobby, you know you've stepped into an above-average hotel. Located on Alaskan Way, the building itself is U-shape with right angles, so most rooms have some view of Seattle's famed Waterfront. And from what I can see, most upper rooms had a balcony. Open the sliding doors and you can smell and hear the ocean. Also, the famed restaurant called the Fish Club is a nice way to start your culinary adventures in Seattle.
Right next to the hotel is the Seattle International Trade Center where I'm sure a lot of important business is done. There's also a Starbucks inside the Trade Center. Across the street is a place where summer concerts are set up. Also, along Alaskan Way, the Waterfront Trolley trolls along and it's a convenient way for you to get from your hotel to the central part of the Waterfront where you can start your day, but the Trolley does pass through Pioneer Square and ends in the Chinatown Int'l District.
