  • So. We were staying downtown and my daughter SHATTERED her phone to the point that she was cutting her fingers to use it. So we headed to the Apple store in university village for a repair. We had a c...  more »
  • My relationship with U Village has changed as they have grown. It's more crowded and a bit more challenging when you're looking for parking. So now I try to go on off hours. The shops are mostly high ...  more »

  • Busy place all the time. Unique shops and stores. Great place to shop for locals and those passing through. Lots of stores, something for everyone. Plan on using parking garages, the other spots fill up quickly. Parking is free. Security onsite, use to work for them. They very friendly and knowledgeable.
  • This place is super cute! Lots of different stores including a Microsoft and Apple store. Nicely organized so you stay in a large square and can walk to any of the areas very quickly. Great food places - I highly recommend Veggie Grill. Parking can be tough in the small lots around the stores, but there's a big parking structure on the east side.
  • This is one of the best shopping centers around. They have lots of trendy new stores like the Amazon Books store, Microsoft store, and lots of small gift shops and specialty stores. They have several larger furniture stores as well, such as a Crate & Barrel. It's kept very nice outside, and they offer umbrellas if there is rainy weather. They're doing construction in the parking lots now which is an eyesore, but that's only temporary.
  • University Village is an awesome, modern shopping center with tons of things to do, and many shops of different varieties. It's a great place to spend a day shopping, or just browsing the various areas. It even contains Amazon Books, which is one of few!
  • The mall is clean and well kept. Excellent variety of shops. For the most part the shops seem fairly upscale. There is plenty of parking but be careful because pedestrians are afoot all over!

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
