When you arrive at the Grand Hyatt Seattle, we want your only surprise to be the stunning view of the city or Puget Sound from your floor-to-ceiling window in your room. That said, there are a few things you should know before you go.
1. The hotel itself does not house a spa or pool. Your trip to Seattle might be so action packed that you won’t even miss these amenities, but those of you looking for a more pampering day can go down the street to Hyatt at Olive 8, where Grand Hyatt Seattle guests are encouraged to book appointments or swim in the lap pool at the Elaia Spa.
2. Pack your own snacks. Though water and complimentary coffee and tea are provided in the guest room, a fully stocked mini-bar is not provided.
3. Babysitting can be arranged. Seattle offers plenty of attractions for kids, such as the aquarium or a ferryboat ride across Puget Sound. However, if mom and dad want a night out to sample one of the local alehouses or breweries (try The Pike Brewing Co.), the concierge can offer a choice of local babysitting agencies to assist.
4. Bring your walking shoes. You’ll want to take advantage of the prime location of Grand Hyatt Seattle by walking to nearby attractions like Pike Place Public Market and Pioneer Square. With so much to see, the walk will go quickly, but most places are at least five blocks from the property, so you’ll want to make sure your feet are comfortable.
5. Don’t pay for a cab from the airport. Taking the light rail is easy to navigate, and the hotel is about two blocks from the West Lake station. If you’re worried about losing your way on public transportation, arrange one of the airport shuttle options, such as the Downtown Airporter, which will drop you off right in front of the Grand Hyatt entrance with minimal stops along the way.
