Wake up to a weekend in Bellevue...

Maybe you've found yourself with an extra day during your business trip to explore the Pacific Northwest, or perhaps you're looking for a relaxing getaway but just have a free weekend to escape the hustle and bustle. No matter what your weekend needs may be, Bellevue, Washington has it all just 9 miles from Seattle. 

Hotels offer great weekend rates

Bellevue's compact and walkable downtown is home to a range of hotel properties with favorable weekend rates after the city's thriving corporate business during the week has died down.

World-class shopping, chef-owned restaurants and bars abound in Bellevue's walkable downtown core, where within a block or two you can go from a fine dining experience to a provocative exhibit at Bellevue Arts Museum to a leisurely stroll through a local park.Want to see more of the region? Bellevue is conveniently located at the center of the Western Washington universe. Take a short drive west to Pike's Place Market in Seattle for the day, or northeast to Woodinville for an afternoon of wine tasting, or a little further east for a scenic mountain hike among glacier lakes and stately evergreens.
