Some hotels in Seattle and around the Pacific Northwest have come up as winners on TripAdvisor’s annual ”Travelers Choice” awards. The favorites for 2013, based on travelers’ reviews on the uber-popular travel website, include:
Four Seasons Hotel, Seattle: #4 in the top 25 U.S. hotels. (The winner was the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island of Hawaii.) Portland’s RiverPlace Hotel ranked #9 and Seattle’s Inn at the Market was ranked 21st.
Among the top 25 U.S. small hotels, the Coast Cabins in Manzanita, Ore., ranked 10th.
For the top 25 bargain hotels in the U.S., the Sea Haven Motel in Rockaway Beach, Ore., was 17th.
Among the top 25 B&Bs and inns in the U.S., Seattle’s Chelsea Station was 17th and Cameo Heights Mansion B&B in Touchet, Wash., came 21st. You may, like me, say, hmm, where’s Touchet? Answer: Near Walla Walla in the wine country.
