Comfortable Hotels in Bellevue After Exploring the Region’s Craft Beer and Wine
Bellevue, Washington, is the gateway to exploring Seattle’s regional craft beer and wine scene, both of which are worthy reasons to travel to the area. Two breweries — Bellevue Brewing and Geuax Brewing — are in Bellevue, while a mere 20 minutes away you’ll find Woodinville Wine Country, which is home to Chateau Ste Michelle and 90 other wineries.
Access to the big city is not the only reason that attracts tourists to Bellevue. The quaint suburb also offers plenty of shopping and dining options within walking distance of most hotels. It’s a stress-free place to lay low after a day of exploring regional Seattle.
Here are five comfortable hotels in Bellevue where you can rest your head after a day of imbibing:
Affordable Luxury at the Hilton Bellevue
One of the benefits of staying in Bellevue is that the hotels tend to be much more affordable than across the bridge in Seattle. Budget travelers will definitely enjoy more bang for your buck at the Hilton Bellevue. Here, you can expect all the amenities one would presume at a Hilton including a heated pool, hot tub, granite bathrooms, and down comforters. Each room has a balcony where you can relax with an adult beverage bought at one of the local breweries or wineries.
Sweat Off Those Calories at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue
For the health-conscious beer and wine traveler (yes, those do exist), the Hyatt Regency Bellevue is an awesome choice. You’ll have access to a new 7,000-square-foot fitness center, which features classes, a heated lap pool, and training facilities. Or maybe you prefer to burn your calories as you prepare to consume more calories. The Bellevue Collection is a short stroll from the hotel and includes more than 40 restaurants.
Enjoy the Central Location of the Sheraton Bellevue
At the Sheraton Bellevue it’s all about location, location, location. The hotel is a few blocks from Meydenbauer Center, Bellevue Square, and downtown Bellevue, which gives you plenty to explore locally after spending the day experiencing the greater Seattle beer and wine scene. It’s a lot like coming home to your own personal neighborhood. You will also sleep well on the plush pillowtop Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed at the recently renovated hotel.
A Budget-Friendly Stay at Coast Bellevue Hotel
While many hotels in Bellevue come with hidden costs, the Coast Bellevue Hotel throws in many of those extras for free. Included with the room-rate is a complimentary breakfast, parking, and Wi-Fi. The hotel also offers a shuttle that will take you anywhere within a 5-mile radius. Be sure to visit the nearby Meydenbauer Center, where you can watch live performances throughout the year.
Boutique Luxury at Hotel Bellevue
The Hotel Bellevue’s 67 rooms are finished with rich, defining details such as soaking tubs, French doors, and an in-room movie system. Each room also packs its own surprise from fireplaces to Jacuzzis to skylights. Views include the hotel’s lush gardens or Mount Ranier. Most beneficial for the alcohol tourist, however, is free access to the Bellevue Club. Work off the hangover kinks with the help of a masseuse in the spa or via the complimentary yoga classes. The hotel also offers four unique restaurants.
