Ballard has a real neighborhood vibe so staying here is a good way to feel like a local, though it can feel a bit cut off from Downtown. There’s a good restaurant and nightlife scene in this part of town.

Inn at El Gaucho
Inn at El Gaucho
Hollywood Rat Pack enthusiasts will want to move right in to these swank, retro-style, ultrachic suites done in dark wood with buttery leather furniture, upstairs from Belltown's beloved El Gaucho steak house and the Big Picture—a fabulous movie theater with a full bar. Rooms face Puget Sound, the city, or the hotel atrium; atrium rooms are quieter than those that face the street. Additional perks include room service from El Gaucho and in-room massages and spa services from the Hyatt's spa team.
Free parking and Wi-Fi, freshly baked cupcakes, shuttle service to Downtown and elsewhere, and creative amenities make this University District hotel a great deal. Guest rooms have big windows that let in lots of light. One of the fun features is the "Ala Cart" menu, from which you can request a rolling cart filled with games or goodies, depending on the theme; the "Art cart," for example, delights guests of all ages with art supplies, aprons, and berets. The on-site café serves breakfast and lunch, and has an espresso bar.
