My husband and I will be celebrating our 8th year anniversary this 4th of July in beautiful Seattle. I have researched central hotels to death and need some input. We want to be close to the waterfront, Pike Place Market and all the other typical, but amazing touristy attractions. We love food, but prefer holes in the wall or locally owned non-chain restaurants. We prefer our hotel to be more modern than traditional. Having a city or water view is a must. A pool, being able to open a window and a mini fridge would be ideal, but not a deal breaker.
