If you're looking for a wonderfully cozy getaway spot without leaving the city, then the Hotel Bellevue is a good choice. It has all the amenities of a small hotel mixed with several benefits of a larger property. All rooms are considered "deluxe" or some variation of a "suite." Most have separate soaking tubs and showers which is nice. Lots of marble/granite, soft floors, and VERY comfortable beds. Granted, I'm a 5'11" 180lbs. guy, so most beds are pretty easy on my back, but they were better than most I've slept on for a hotel.
The mild warning in the title is simply a reminder of knowing where the hotel is located within the city of Bellevue. It's about 1-mile to the major mall, theater, and most restaurants....so not exactly a place to come if you're wanting the typical "downtown" feel where everything is right outside your front door. What they do have onsite that is amazing is a world class fitness facility that you can pay extra for access to. This is because the hotel was formerly called The Bellevue Club and was simply an extension of the fitness club. Either way, if you're in to the fitness thing and want options, you'll want to move to this club! It's that amazing, even if you're just visiting/watching others, it has indoor tennis, swimming, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, and tons of other items.
The only other item to remind you of is the cost. You are in Bellevue, WA....aka the town that Microsoft (Bill Gates) built. Everything is overpriced in this town. Rooms, food, movies, shopping, and the rest will all cost you at least an extra 10-15% if not more than a similarly styled place in another town. All of this said, my wife and I have stayed here 3 times now in 7 years, so we obviously believe it's worth it now and then.
