We came here to eat at the secret Pike Place Chowder restaurant located on the upper floor. Due to the number of people in line at the original spot by the market, we were about to leave when a worker... read more »
Center is not good; lots of homeless people and not that many stores. Would definitely recommend to keep on track at the very city center of the town
This center is where you can pick up the monorail to the Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and the metro/bus for other stops around Seattle. We took the metro into Capitol Hill and down to Century Field... read more »
Great place to take the kids on a nice summer day and you live in the city. They always have games to play for free and a nice jungle Jim for the kids to burn up their energy. Plus they have free music and other entertainment happening here alot in the summer time.
I like the shops here, good variety. The area is very busy, be prepared for sensory overload. Good food court, unique selections.
Essentially a small scale mall in the heart of downtown Seattle. While it's proximity to other shops and sights makes it important, as does the monorail station on its third floor, there is really no reason to come here. Completely surrounded by high end shops and restaurants, you're more likely to walk past what you're looking for on your way to the mall than find it in Westlake Center. That being said, they go out of their way to add holiday cheer during the winter season, and Westlake Park, immediately outside of the mall, hosts the Christmas tree lighting, a merry-go-round, and other festive scenery. During the summer, food trucks park here and crowds of chess playing urbanites can be found. While sympathetic to their plight, there can be a massive homeless population in the park and around the mall that can be very aggressive panhandlers.
This review is as of my 7/28/2016 visit to this mall. I've been here about 8 years ago and it was a great mall. I was a little discouraged now to see how the mall has changed. Most noticeable was the absence of eateries. On the same level as the monorail, there used to be a good assortment of eating places, but all have closed down except for one pretzel place. I used to be a nice place to eat after or before visiting the Space Needle. Too bad.
Small mall. Mostly food court stalls. We passed through a few times and each time found it difficult to get up to the next level as the escalator was broken and we had to go up in the lift. There was only one lift so there was a always a line of about 3 dozen people waiting to go up.
