Convenient to Microsoft
Bellevue is is a thriving suburban office center with great restaurants and shopping. Bellevue is extremely convenient to Microsoft’s corporate campus in Redmond, and an easy drive to Seattle (outside of rush hour traffic).
Bellevue Sheraton – Great service under $200 including parking!
The real allure of your stay at these hotels – is the convenient walk to a huge list of great restaurants at Bellevue Square, Bellevue Place, and Lincoln Square found at our Bellevue Restaurant Guide.
The Westin Bellevue and Hyatt Bellevue are towering, great quality hotels within a mecca of upscale suburban restaurants, shopping, and theaters. Both hotels are located very close to Microsoft’s main Redmond, Washington campus and feature high-end services targeted at business travelers and Seattle vacationers. Bellevue’s convenience to downtown Seattle – but while maintaining an orderly “suburban feel” makes it a perfect business center for your trip to Microsoft’s Redmond campus.
Two large shopping malls surround the Westin Bellevue and Hyatt Bellevue – Lincoln Square and Bellevue Square. Bellevue Square is one of the largest Seattle Eastside malls – featuring a who’s who of high-end mall stores anchored by Nordstrom and Macy’s. The malls also feature two multi-plex cinema’s to enjoy your favorite movies in full surround sound. Lincoln Square has added extensive additional parking; many new restaurants, private condominiums, and the Westin Bellevue.
Marriott Courtyard offers a great alternative to the “skyscraper hotels” in downtown Bellevue with its property right on the main street of Northeast 8th Street. The hotel is located directly across from the Bravern luxury condo / apartment complex which includes high-end dining options from steakhouse, to French, to Thai. You can walk approximately four blocks to reach the mega-mall restaurants of Lincoln Square and Bellevue Square which include a full theater-cinema and bowling alley. Travelers like the convenience and often better pricing of the downtown Bellevue Marriott Courtyard, the hotel is also an easier route to the 405 highway versus the Bellevue Square hotels (Westin, Hyatt). The downtown Bellevue Courtyard is an option worth checking out if you are visiting Microsoft offices or the Bellevue area.
A little further from the Bellevue Square main restaurant area, Marriott also offers the Residence Inn option. We love to stay at Residence Inns for their free, amazing hot breakfasts and friendly service – particularly for long term business travelers. The Residence Inn is located convenient to downtown Bellevue’s shopping and restaurants, but may be more likely as a drive than a walk. The rooms include cooking options and designed to feel more like a homey-type apartment versus a sterile hotel room. The opportunity to store food in the room and cook really makes it easier for a long term visit or for families.
