HotelTonight – Eastlake Seattle Hotels in Seconds

I have traveled all over the world for both business and pleasure, and one of the places I've always enjoyed the most is Seattle. I feel fortunate that my current job brings me there often, but the first few times I was there I left disappointed. That's because I could never find the time to explore the Emerald City to the extent that I wanted. One day, I realized that I could easily change all of this. Instead of flying back as soon as my work obligations were completed, I would simply book my return flight for 24 hours later. That would give me an entire day to see what I wanted to see. Since I've been doing this, I've chosen one neighborhood to explore every time I was there. On my last trip, I wanted to see more of Eastlake. I looked forward to seeing an area I had heard a lot about. I also had no concerns with regards to finding a place to stay, as my travel companion, HotelTonight, is an app that helps people find lodging in real time. I would book an Eastlake Seattle hotel room when I was ready to relax.

The Lake

There's a reason that the word "lake" is present in the name of the neighborhood, as Eastlake sits on the shore of Lake Union, one of the bodies of water that creates the personality that is Seattle. This is a gorgeous setting, and one that has been settled with quaint homes and a community nearby that definitely seems to make the most of its time near the water. You almost feel like you're in some sort of fishing village, but the homes here are more set up to enjoy the scenery than to bag big loads of fish.

The Redevelopment

Traditionally, Eastlake was a community that was filled with workers who spent their lives in the cargo industry. Many different types of goods needed to be moved across the water, and this is where the people who did that lived. I was surprised to find out that a majority of the homes here were built relatively recently, and I was also told that these new homes represented pretty significant upgrades to the abodes that workers used to call home.

The Restaurants

Just because Eastlake is not some type of fishing community, it does not mean that the people here don't enjoy their seafood. I was told about a local place that served some of the best and freshest seafood from right out of the lake. I sat down and ordered the pan-seared trout, and it was so fresh and tasty that I was sure that it had been caught that day. I also enjoyed a local craft beer with it. It was a fantastic meal.
