HotelTonight – Pioneer Square Seattle Hotels Near You

Seattle is one of those big cities that is like a tapestry of smaller communities. You could spend weeks there and still not see everything there is to see or experience everything there is to experience. I love to explore big cities, and I've been doing so for a long time. In recent years, I've learned to refine my approach. Instead of trying to cram as much sightseeing into a day or two as possible, I slow things down and learn about a place in smaller chunks. I've been doing this in Seattle for a few trips now. I go there often for work, and each time I've been there I've booked my return flight for 24 hours after my work obligations were complete. I choose a different neighborhood every time and spend the entire 24 hours there. It gives me the time to delve deeply into a community and learn more about it. On my last trip to Seattle, I chose to explore Pioneer Square. I couldn't wait to see what life was like there. I wasn't worried about lodging, as my HotelTonight app would help me find a Pioneer Square Seattle hotel in seconds.

The History

It becomes clear quickly after arriving in Pioneer Square that this is not necessarily a residential area. This is a part of town that is filled with businesses and entertainment options. However, it is also historic, and you see that when you get a look at some of the buildings that have been preserved for well over 100 years. This was one of the first parts of Seattle that was settled. In the late 19th Century, though, a massive fire burned most of the city. Pioneer Square was one of the first parts of town to be rebuilt, and many of those buildings remain.

The Entertainment

As mentioned, there are a lot of options for entertainment here. If you like sports, football and baseball stadiums are nearby, and the people of Seattle love their Mariners, Sounders and of course Seahawks. If sports are not your thing, there are art galleries all over the place here. It's a bit unusual for art galleries to be placed so close to a sports complex, but it certainly works well here. I walked through a few of them and was impressed by the local flavor in many of the works.

The Food

If gastro pubs are something you enjoy, then Pioneer Square is where you would want to spend a lot of time. I had dinner at one and I could not believe all of the different things that they could do with hamburgers. I had one with peanut butter and jelly on it. I was skeptical, but the server assured me I'd be happy with it. I was. It was the perfect mix between chewy and sweet, smoky and subtle. I wish I could have one right now.
