Just 15 minutes from Seattle and three miles from Washington’s high-tech corridor or Redmond, Kirkland, and Bellevue, the Woodmark Hotel feels a world away from that high-stress urban life. It’s the only hotel on the shores of Lake Washington, making it a dreamy base for nautical adventures like kayaking and yacht tours. The rooms have cushy comforts like down pillows, tech necessities like fast WiFi, and whimsical touches like make-your-own-martini bars. The two waterfront dining options are the Mediterranean-inflected Bin on the Lake wine bar and restaurant, and the more casual Beach Café.
In the Area
While the hotel is meant to be a cocooning destination, it’s quite close to the attractions of Bellevue, including the Bellevue Arts Museum. Further afield, the Bellevue Farmers Market offers locally grown fruits, vegetables, and flowers, and the nearby Woodinville wine region includes more than 90 wineries and was recently named one of America’s 50 most amazing wine experiences by Food & Wine magazine. Visual pleasures abound at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, which covers more than 53 acres.
How to Get There
My husband and i checked in for one night for our anniversary. Location is great and hotel is clean and stylish. We have stayed at this resort before so we know you are supposed to be offered champagne at check in. Well the women that checked is in did not offer us any, all the people around us but NOT us. The fact that is was our anniversary was noted on our reservation and again at check in but they did nothing. Well she did remind us to grab a bag of chips from the pantry! Will look for other local hotels for staycations from now on. Also loud do to wedding until 1 AM.
This hotel, down on the water front rents sea doos, kayaks, boats.... amazing. GREAT staff, so much fun. Going out on Lake Washington is an utterly wonderful experience. I adore this place. Hotel has great food.... amazing place. Parking is easy
I had the pleasure of working with Sophia Stoddard who assisted me with a reservation issue I was having that could not be addressed online. After emails back and forth as well as phone calls, Sophia and Woodmark was able to make it happen. I will be traveling to Seattle and will stay at the Woodmark with several family members and friends and I trust that our stay will be as pleasant as the reservation experience. Will update on my return. I am looking forward to it as I have never been to Seattle!
