  • It is open type is on the northeast edge of the University of Washington in Seattle Washington State's largest shopping mall. Seattle General style of North American shopping mall has a large one-story or two-story buildings, parked at the parking lot near shoppers into the building, including shopping to. And rain and in the cold to see inside the building so visitors can enjoy shopping comfortably on the other hand, most uniform outside the entrance to the very death is unique. University village are external aisle is all, all shops are very distinctive and unique look and because. I think it is spring, summer, autumn is great fun. However, no winter. We went on the night of December, and then it's cold, wander soon has I have disappeared. Here you will find that there are bookstores and Amazon.com one of the unique things. Though it lost many bookstores around the world by mail order Amazon made the general bookstore with thought business concentrating in the stores.

  • Who doesn't like the University Village... Really. It has become extremely upscale and is truly a lovely treat to go to. With the addition of the Amazon bookstore and plenty of Starbucks coffee shops one can be in heaven for hours. If you don't want to deal with street level parking, there is truly one of the nicest parking garages I've ever been in. With a beautiful Glass Elevator which is fun in itself to just ride up and down in. On the ground floor next to the elevator. Is the most lovely public restroom, and it is kept spotless. And there is a very nice Bartell's if you need to pick up something on the way home.
  • I wish I had more time to explore. Lots of stores, kind of spread out, so be prepared to walk a lot. Grabbed a coffee at Starbucks at the start. Hit a few stores and found a great store that had containers. Bought a giant one to hold sunflower seeds for my birds/squirrel feeders. Great price. Grabbed lunch at veggie grill before we left. Yummy food if you haven't tried it.
  • This venue is a great place for shopping lots of high-end shops and easy access getting around the complex. There's a good variety of restaurants and coffee places as well. For the high-end shops this is probably one of our more favorite areas just had a convenience factor and the shops that are here.
  • Higher end retail and restaurant development. Plan on tough parking and crowds... Especially at night. Fun way to waste an evening... Grab a coffee or ice cream and walk and people watch. All the beautiful newly moneyed tech bros and trophies...I jest...or so I?
  • U Village has most of what you might want in a mall sort of area. There's clothing, housewares, decor, entertainment, food, gifts, tech stores, baby goods... The parking situation is usually a little tricky, though. The south parking garage ends up getting long lines of cars stuck on their way up/down. I prefer to park either in the north garage or at the east garage near Qfc and walk. Or come during less popular hours (weekdays are your best bet, except Friday, of course).

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.
