Westin Bellevue Hotel Review
Luxury, Quality, and Convenience
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).
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.
The Westin Bellevue’s Heavenly Bed
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. Bellevue Restaurant Guide.

The Westin was built in 2005 to serve the needs of business travelers to the Microsoft campus and Seattle vacationers looking for a top-quality hotel. Service is incredible – and the rooms are decorated in a beautiful style. Room furnishings are great quality – we loved the thick towels and chaise lounges. The hotel features restaurants, a pool, and full health club. An adjacent area of private condominiums proves out the allure – even to Bellevue locals – of this location at the center of everything.

Our room included a flat screen LCD television; cordless telephone; electronic safe; mini-bar; and thick, fluffy blankets on a heavenly bed. Westin does it all – and the prices average $200 – $300 per night if you shop around. We highly recommend the Westin based on our stay. The Hyatt Bellevue is a great quality hotel with many of the same service and features as the Westin. In general – Hyatt occupies a slightly lower brand position in the Starwood hierarchy – but is a tremendous hotel by any measure with all of the same location advantages.
