Your Guide to the Perfect Staycation

March 9, 2023

Whether you’re staying in Bellevue on business, vacation, or because you won one of our Choose Your Adventure packages, you’re steps away from food, entertainment, and relaxation. No matter what your idea of fun may be, we have something for everyone.

Explore The Wild & Enjoy Time Together

It’s no coincidence that our Explore the Wild adventure includes a one-night stay at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue. The hotel offers an environment perfect for winding down after a day filled with exploring the zoo, KidsQuest Children’s Museum and more. Take the kids to the indoor pool and snuggle up with takeout or cross the skybridge for a family movie at Cinemark Lincoln Square and dinner in The Dining District.

In the morning, treat the kids to pancakes while you enjoy gourmet brunch options like crab benedict at Eques, located conveniently in the Hyatt Wintergarden. Bring younger kids over to the Kids’ Cove on the third level of Bellevue Square to get their wiggles out or take a walk to the Bellevue Downtown Park to enjoy the playground.

Brunch With Friends & Pamper Yourself

Once you’ve finished your two-hour brunch cruise across Lake Union and Lake Washington, return to The Westin Bellevue for a day of rest and relaxation. Book a massage, facial, mani-pedi or other treatment at Truce Spa, the Westin’s in-house day spa before taking the skybridge to Bellevue Square for a little retail therapy. Looking for inspiration? Stop by the Bellevue Arts Museum to view their rotating exhibitions of regional and internationally recognized art. Enjoy dinner at The Dining District, take in a movie at Cinemark Reserve, and cap off the night with a drink at the Westin’s own Cypress Lounge & Wine Bar.

Take the morning slow with breakfast from room service or take a ride on a Peloton bike in the fitness center before you finally check out, feeling fully refreshed.

Embrace Bright Lights & The Big City

The Porch at the W Bellevue

W Bellevue sits at the heart of Bellevue’s nightlife, and a one-night stay offers opportunities for nonstop fun. Start at Lincoln Square North for a double-header of bowling and mini golf at Lucky Strike and Forum Social House, respectively.  Return to the W before midnight for a classy cocktail at Civility & Unrest or cross the skybridge to Suite at Bellevue Place for signature drinks and a nightclub atmosphere.

If you feel like calling it a night a bit earlier, take the elevator up to The Porch, where you can take in sweeping views of the city from its most stunning vantage point. In the morning, enjoy a world-class breakfast from James Beard Award-winning Chef Jason Wilson at The Lakehouse.
