In this article, we outline the best Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Seattle. Which stands out? which are rubbish? If you want a solid hotel with a good comfy bed for a good night’s sleep, a nice bathroom, a free breakfast, a good pool, and an attractive location, which should you choose?
Marriott recently merged with Starwood, so their hotel portfolio includes The Luxury Collection, St. Regis, Westin, W Hotels, EDITION, Sheraton, and the Four Points by Sheraton, as well as Marriotts, JW Marriotts, Courtyard by Marriott, and more. Executive lounge access is a perk afforded to top-level Platinum Elite members, so if you are a top-level Platinum Elite member, you should get free lounge access at both the Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park and the Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel at Circular Quay.

Located in the city’s vibrant core, the Sheraton Grand Seattle offers gourmet dining and bars, world-class shopping, exciting entertainment, and iconic local attractions, including the Pike Place Market, Space Needle, and Chihuly Garden & Glass Museum. You can redeem or earn Marriott Bonvoy points here as this is a category 5 hotel that requires around 35,000 points per night.

Add to that, the Sheraton Grand Seattle recently completed a multimillion-dollar transformation featuring all-new guest rooms, an expanded Sheraton Club Lounge, the best in Seattle, and modern meeting & event spaces. The swimming pool is on the 35th floor, and there is also an excellent gym on the same floor.
The stylish new lobby showcases the hotel’s private art collection featuring local artists, while Starbucks in the foyer will service all your coffee and snack needs. The Sheraton Grand features several dining options, including Loulay Kitchen & Bar by James Beard award-winning chef Thierry Rautureau.
This hotel is located in an incredibly tall building, so it offers some fantastic views from its floor-to-ceiling windows. Book a club room to get lounge access included. These rooms are on higher floors and have sand-colored carpets and creamy walls with dark wood decorations on the walls.
We like the stylish lamps, the chaise long by the window, allowing you to relax while looking out at the twinkling skyline, and the practical table with two chairs in case you want to eat in your room. Ordinary and club rooms have either a King bed or 2 double beds rather than queen beds.
The club lounge is modern and on one of the top floors with staggering views. Bar stools and high tables are arranged around the edge, so you can work, eat or drink whilst looking out of the windows. The decor is in pines with bright funky colors. It makes me immediately think of IKEA, but with a classier version. The food here is good, with breakfast and evening canapes, along with all-day drinks and snacks.
2. Seattle Marriott Waterfront
The Seattle Marriott Waterfront is located at 2100 Alaskan Way, Seattle, Washington 98121. it is a Category 6 property, costing 50,000 Bonvoy points per night.
This upscale Seattle waterfront hotel is a short walk to Pike Place market and adjacent to waterfront dining. The hotel itself is well located for exploring Seattle by foot and is right across the street from Elliott Bay and Puget Sound.
The M Club Lounge at Seattle Marriott Waterfront is open 24 hours a day and is located on the first floor of this luxury hotel, with outdoor seating and waterfront views which makes it quite a special lounge.
Restaurants at this hotel include the Hook & Plow, featuring modern American cuisine using locally sourced products, craft beers, specialty liquors, and artisan wines. The hotel also features a heated indoor/outdoor connecting pool and a modern gym.
The rooms here are pretty standard Marriott rooms, and the balconies are very small but offer gorgeous views. The decor is dated, but the bathtub is deep, and the standard is acceptable. Noise can be a problem here from both the outside and connecting doors, so be sure to request a room without a connecting door.

6. Four Points by Sheraton Downtown Seattle Center
This basic Four Points hotel offers guests what matters most; to stay comfortable and connected on the road. This hotel is a Category 5 and costs from 35,000. I would always stay at the Sheraton Grand Seattle over this hotel if I were redeeming points, although if you are paying to stay here, you might find this hotel the cheapest. You get what you pay for.
