What It's Like

If Queen Anne's trendy restaurants and bars don't win you over, the view -- a stunning panorama of Seattle's skyline, the Space Needle, and Mount Rainier -- will. Perched on one of the highest hills in the city, Queen Anne is a popular residential neighborhood -- but there's space for visitors to embrace this eclectic neighborhood, too.

Latching to Belltown's northern edge, Queen Anne has a laid-back, quiet atmosphere -- in spite of the fact that it's home to some of Seattle's most pouplar attractions, including the Space Needle, Seattle Center, and Science Center. Beyond the obvious sites, you'll find the Queen Anne Farmers Market at the top of the hill, museums, Kerry Park, and the Mainstage Comedy and Music Club on 1st Avenue.

Where To Stay

Like most parts of Seattle, Queen Anne offers a diverse selection of hotels. Most lodging options in this neighborhood are in Lower Queen Anne -- closest to the Space Needle and Seattle Center.
