Bottom Line

The 67-room luxury Hotel Bellevue is set on nine secluded acres with trees and gardens in Bellevue. It's a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bellevue and Seattle, and the location offers ready access to the I-405 freeway. The hotel provides sumptuous rooms with deep-soaking tubs and there's superb fine dining, but the property is chiefly distinguished by its connection to the Bellevue Club, one of the finest hotel health clubs in the country. Guests enjoy free use of two competition-quality indoor lap pools, tennis and basketball courts, a top-notch fitness center, full-service spa, and yoga and fitness classes, and the hotel should suit fitness fanatics and recreation lovers, though there are added costs for some of the services and facilities.

Scene

Luxury hotel with Northwest feel, excellent health club with several pools

The Hotel Bellevue is a superbly crafted property, with wood, stone, and other natural materials in its construction. The upscale Northwest-style interiors feature warm colors of brown, beige, and tan, with dashes of red in the guest areas and rooms, and bright greens and blues in the restaurant. While not close to Seattle's attractions, the hotel draws fitness lovers and families who use the Bellevue Club's swimming pools and participate in the kids' activities. The fine dining, cozy luxury rooms, and seclusion appeal to couples, while business travelers tend to stay during the week to use the meeting rooms and have ready access to Microsoft and other Bellevue-area companies. The well-heeled crowd gathers in the terrace room and library, refined spots for reading, quiet conversation, and relaxation. Almost everyone makes ample use of the Bellevue Club's outstanding facilities, including its indoor and outdoor pools, yoga and fitness classes, tennis and racquetball courts, fitness center, and full-service spa.

They also come with bathrobes, weight scales, telephones, TV speakers, deep-soaking tubs, and separate glass-enclosed showers. Some rooms and suites have some combination of high-vaulted ceilings, skylights, French doors, patios or balconies, fireplaces, wet bars, Mount Rainier views, and living areas. Pets (dogs only, must weigh not more than 30 pounds) are allowed in select rooms for a one-time fee per room.
