The neighborhood surrounding Hotel Ballard is the place to escape the Space Needle and Pike Place Market set and stroll between Nordic design shops, breweries, and hip restaurants. This 29-room luxury boutique hotel is hung with Scandinavian paintings and decorated in calming grays and golds. Get cozy around the fire pits on the small rooftop to take in the bay views and take advantage of the access to the 75,0000-square-foot Olympic Athletic Club on the ground floor - a 24-hour gym with two pools, squash courts, and much more.
