12 Seattle Hotels In Easy Walking Distance of the Cruise Port

Seattle is a wonderful city to visit and if you are sailing from the port, it’s a shame if you don’t stay for a few days before or after your trip to explore. To help you out, we’ve put together some details on places to stay.

All of the hotels listed below are within one mile of the Pier 66 cruise terminal. This places you squarely in downtown, near many of the major attractions that Seattle has to offer. Unfortunately, there are no hotels directly adjacent to Pier 91, as it is primarily industrial and residential in the adjoining neighborhoods. Still, a short Uber/Lyft ride can get you to the Pier 91 in about 10 minutes.

The honest truth is there are dozens of hotels that meet these requirements. We found nearly 90. For that reason, we’ve looked for the highest-rated hotels in each price point to share.

High-End Hotels

Seattle Marriott Waterfront
Want to be next to the port? We are talking right next to the port. The Seattle Marriott is the closest hotel, and sits right across the street from the cruise pier.

Inn at the Market
This hotel occupies a unique niche if you’re staying in Seattle — it’s the only hotel that is located in the famous Pike Place Market. The hotel is small, with only about 75 rooms that look out onto the waterfront. It’s floor-to-ceiling windows will also make sure you have a great view of the bay and the buzzing activity of the city.

Hotel 1000
Hotel 1000 is a five-star luxury hotel that’s just a couple of blocks from the waterfront. This is a great location if you want to explore the Seattle Aquarium or the Seattle Art Museum. One of the nice perks is a complimentary car service that can give you a ride wherever you need to go.

Four Seasons
The venerable Four Seasons in Seattle has an epic location among the best the city has to offer. It’s just one block from the famous Pike Place market and two blocks from the aquarium. For those who want a room with a view, this is the place. Rooms have sweeping views of the waterfront. Of course, it also offers the service that the Four Seasons is known for.

  • Distance to Port: 14-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Mid-Range Hotels

Grand Hyatt
If you’re looking for a mainstream luxury hotel without the price tag, then Grand Hyatt might be your answer. The hotel is located on the edge of Seattle’s business district. This makes it a little long of a walk to waterfront attractions, but it still offers plenty of restaurants and activities within a short ride. In addition, the hotel offers plenty within its building, including a Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and a Starbucks.

  • Price: $$-$$$
  • Distance to Port: 21-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

The Inn at El Gaucho ($279/night)
Located just about four blocks from the Pier 66 cruise port, The Inn at El Gaucho is second-to-none for convenience to the port. The hotel describes itself as a “retro-swank” boutique hotel, offering fewer than 20 rooms. If you want somewhere unique to stay in Seattle, this is a prime choice.

  • Price: $$-$$$
  • Distance to Port: 7-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

The Paramount Hotel
The Paramount is in the heart of downtown, putting it a little far from the waterfront. Still, if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay during the busy cruise season, it’s a good choice. Expect all the conveniences of a modern luxury hotel, including a fitness center, contemporary styling, and well-appointed rooms.

  • Price: $$-$$$
  • Distance to Port: 22-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Hyatt at Olive 8
The Hyatt at Olive 8 is next door to the Paramount Hotel, putting it somewhat far from Seattle’s famous waterfront and a 10-minute walk from Pike Place Market. One of the coolest features of the hotel is its indoor pool and spa that look out onto the city.

  • Price: $$-$$$
  • Distance to Port: 22-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Inexpensive Hotels

Ace Hotel
If you’re like us, then you may not quite understand why you should pay a ton of money for a place to sleep. That’s where places like Ace Hotel come in. The minimalist hotel’s location is just about five blocks from the port. It’s unique in that it offer standard rooms with a shared bath (one of the reasons it can be affordable in such a prime location). If you don’t want to share a bathroom, deluxe rooms with private facilities are also available.

  • Price: $$
  • Distance to Port: 7-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4 out of 5

Kings Inn
Kings Inn is a throwback to the old 1960’s motor hotel. The rooms are simply appointed an unpretentious. If you’re someone who loves the look and feel of an ultra-modern hotel, then this isn’t the place for you. If, however, you want an inexpensive place to rest your head in a great location in one of the world’s best cities, then you’ll love it.

  • Price: $$
  • Distance to Port: 14-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 2.5 out of 5

La Quinta Inn
La Quinta — the well-known national chain — offers a cozy spot to stay nearly a straight shot from the Pier 66 cruise terminal. The walk will only take about 15 minutes and is less than a mile. In addition to clean and comfy rooms, breakfast is also included.

  • Price: $$
  • Distance to Port: 14-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4 out of 5

Moore Hotel
Staying at a budget hotel doesn’t mean your hotel has to sacrifice being trendy and hip. The Moore Hotel sits in a historic 1907 building and has been updated with a clean, minimalist design. It offers a great location, just a few minutes from Pike Place and the port. One thing it doesn’t have is air-conditioning, but most of the weather in Seattle is cool anyway.

  • Price: $$
  • Distance to Port: 12-minute walk
  • Review Rating: 4 out of 5
