Question: My husband, kids (ages 8 and 2) and I will be visiting Seattle the last week of October over Halloween. My husband will be attending a business conference at the Renaissance during the day while the kids and I are on our own. I am leaning towards the Four Seasons or Westin since they seem to be within walking distance to attractions and I prefer not to rent a car however would it be difficult for my husband to get to the Renaissance every day? Also, any suggestions for where to go trick or treating? Thanks so much!
Answer: The Four Seasons is definitely the nicer hotel. The pool at the Westin has a more family-friendly vibe (i.e. lots of splashing and horse-play) but the pool at the Four Seasons will likely be sparsely used through the day so might not matter. Both are an easy walk to the Renaissance. For trick or treating go to Upper Queen Anne and walk along the businesses that give out candy. It’s a fun atmosphere. Can easily veer off and enter the surrounding neighborhood if you want to visit houses.
