Business Travel Guide
The best hotels, restaurants and activities for Seattle business travelers.
Seattle is more than just a pretty face with its snowcapped mountains and stunning location on Puget Sound. The gem of the Pacific Northwest is also the corporate headquarters for global super-stars, including Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks and Nordstrom. Boeing headquarters may now be in Chicago, but Seattle still claims this aerospace giant as its own.
Reflecting its status as both a popular tourist destination and global business center, Seattle offers an impressive selection of four-star and business-class hotels, a vibrant dining scene with nationally recognized chefs, and a world-class visual and performing arts community. Two state of the art sports stadiums (Safeco and Centurylink) and sophisticated shopping complement Seattle's historic Pioneer Square and charming Pike Place Market, the nation's oldest continually operating farmers market.
The city's laid back attitude and obsession with outdoor activities, including kayaking, biking and hiking add yet another dimension to its urban culture. With all these attractions, it's not surprising so many business travelers return to the Emerald City when it's time for vacation.
