Guide to Gay Friendly Hotels in Seattle, WA (2024 Updated)

Search and book Lesbian and Gay friendly hotels Seattle, WA.

Lesbiangaybisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.

U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in the U.S. state of Florida may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Same-sex sexual activity became legal in the state after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Lawrence v. Texas on June 26, 2003, and same-sex marriage has been legal in the state since January 6, 2015.
Washington is frequently referred to as one of the United States‘ most LGBTfriendly states, and its largest city Seattle has a thriving LGBT community, ranked as the fifth largest in the country. Opinion polling has shown that a majority of Washingtonians support same-sex marriage and LGBT rights.
Seattle has a long history of being a  gay friendly town and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as  Seattle Eagle & Queer/Bar or The Cuff Complex are  most famous gay bars in Seattle, WA.
Seattle, a city on Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest, is surrounded by water, mountains and evergreen forests, and contains thousands of acres of parkland. Washington State’s largest city, it’s home to a large tech industry, with Microsoft and Amazon headquartered in its metropolitan area. The futuristic Space Needle, a 1962 World’s Fair legacy, is its most iconic landmark.

Built in 1909, this historic Seattle mansion features an 8,000 square-foot guest house and separate carriage house. Volunteer Park and the Asian Art Museum are less than 1 block away.

The Bacon Mansion Bed and Breakfast provides individually decorated rooms with cotton robes, wine glasses and wood Venetian blinds. Cable TV and free Wi-Fi are included.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the day rooms with stained glass windows, marble fireplaces and a 3,000-crystal chandelier. A library, grand piano and lush gardens also reside at the mansion. A private courtyard with a smoking area is available.

A large continental breakfast including freshly made fruit salad and muffins is served at the Bacon Mansion each morning. Unlimited coffee and Tazo Tea is available.

Set in an elegant mansion dating from 1910, this refined bed-and-breakfast surrounded by Japanese maple trees is a 2-minute walk from Volunteer Park and 2 miles from the Space Needle.

Individually decorated, country-chic rooms offer free Wi-Fi, TVs, and wine glasses and openers; most have shared bathrooms. Upgraded rooms feature en suite facilities, plus mini fridges and coffeemakers. Suites add fireplaces, sofabeds and/or balconies.

Parking and hot drinks are complimentary. Continental breakfast is served in a genteel dining room. Other amenities include a formal lounge with a grand piano, along with a warm library and a garden patio.

Located on Seattle’s Capitol Hill in a quite landmark neighborhood just two blocks from the Broadway Business district and one mile north of downtown. Large living room with grand piano, leaded glass library, formal dining room and patio with fountain. Rooms are of great variety with no two being alike. Close enough to everything, yet far enough away.

A wonderful place to stay on a quiet street in bustling Capitol Hill. I stayed in the Venetian room, which had a great bed, room to lounge and excellent water pressure. Full covid precautions in place. Breakfast was great—fruit, yogurt and homemade, delicious muffins. Everything is clean and comfortable, and the mansion is full of beautiful antiques, including a collection of pigs from all over the world. Daryl the owner is welcoming and clearly loves this place he has furnished over the course of years. You’ll love it too.

We had a wonderful and restful stay at the lovely Bacon Mansion on Capitol Hill, Seattle near Volunteer Park. The enormous mansion has 11 bedrooms and a guest cottage. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated and the breakfasts are amazing with homemade muffins, jam and fruit, granola
and coffee and juice. My daughter loved the breakfast. The Mansion is close to Broadway shops and restaurants and the huge Volunteer Park. We will return again.

The inn is absolutely stunning. The decor is grand but comfortable, and we felt like special guests. The breakfasts include fresh fruit salad, cereals, yogurt, and delicious freshly baked muffins. The side porch and garden are lovely places to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or two, or simply to enjoy the fresh air. The owner clearly cares deeply about the inn, and everything about the place reflects that deep appreciation for its innate beauty and historical significance in the neighborhood.

There is some limited parking on site, or street parking, but it’s close to public transportation so perhaps a rental car is unnecessary. Good restaurants are an easy walk, either on Broadway or a few blocks to the east on 15th Ave.

All in all, a charming and comfortable place. We will definitely be back, although next time we’ll opt for a larger room on the second floor.

What can I say bad? Nothing. Great location, great staff, cool concept. Unique modernization of an older space. Absolutely love what you’ve done with the place. Clean, Cool, Sleak. Gay man’s heaven.

This hotel was significantly cheaper than anything else we considered and the location was ideal. It was clean and there was never a wait for a bathroom. There was significant street noise on the weekend (not the hotel’s fault, obviously). The staff was friendly.

This is not somewhere I’d stay if I planned to spend any time at a hotel – for example, our TV did not work and despite efforts from a staff member, it only played one channel the entire trip. But, it was a clean place to sleep, offered free breakfast in the morning, and we spent all our time sight-seeing, so this hotel ended up being a great bargain.

For our latest trip to Seattle, we decided to try this boutique hotel. The idea of booking a Queen room with shared bath seemed daunting to me, but in fact, it was no problem at all! As reviews mentioned, the line of bathrooms are clean and rarely full (there were always a few available, even in the peak hours of getting ready).

The breakfast room was a nice option and staff were always tidying up, clearing tables, and replenishing items. I loved that you can have your meal anytime until 12pm so you can mosey on down at your leisure. The location is perfect to everything, and it was a nice uphill walk from the terminal (we arrived by ferry). Staff were great and very accommodating, from booking by phone to the housekeeping/breakfast staff.

Or stop by MADE Coffee for locally-roasted coffee brewed by our skilled baristas.

The hotel is very new and modern in design. It has great facilities and a nice restaurant and bar. The beds are super comfortable and the location was great.

The front desk were very helpful when we arrived a day earlier than our booking and were able to change things around for us without any extra charge.

I would definitely stay here again when visiting downtown Seattle.

This hotel just hit all the marks for me for our Seattle stay. First off, check-in was a breeze! The staff all around the hotel was so nice and helpful. The doorman always greeted us and remembered us. Just can’t beat the location either, you are in the middle of bustling downtown and walking to Capitol Hill and other nearby areas is not far.

I loved all the small touches in the decoration down to the scent they pump throughout the property. Our entire stay I kept commenting that it always smelled like a wood burning fire and added to the coziness. Turns out they do pump the scent to the vents!

Our king bed was very comfortable, the room had a lot of nice decorated touches and to be honest, it’s how I would decorate my apartment so it didn’t feel like a sterile hotel environment. I had some drinks in the restaurant downstairs, Rider, and turns out they have a decent happy hour while watching a Seahawks game. The food coming out looked really good, but didn’t get a chance to try.

Overall, it was a great and comfy stay and I will definitely book here again. I was a little worried after reading reviews about “hidden fees” and noise. First off, these “hidden fees” are actually taxes for tourism, occupancy, and resort fees that every hotel in the city charges. You can’t escape these fees if you’re staying in a hotel downtown.

As for the noise, I live in a city and I’m used to noises like construction, cars, etc but being on the 8th floor noise wasn’t bad at all. It’s a city, you’re gonna hear noises, period.

I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Theodore. The location was very convenient, it was an easy walk to get to Pike Place Market but also a short ride to get to other neighborhoods such as Ballard. The hotel is beautiful with lots of Seattle pictures and artifacts. While the bathroom may be small I thought it was well designed and had a great shower.

The light rail station is also just a few minutes away which we were able to take to the airport on our way home.

This was our first stay at Hotel Theodore and we loved it! We booked a Superior Room with a King Bed and it was lovely and spacious. Bed and linens were very comfortable, and the bathroom was a nice size. The lobby is nice with a bar and a cafe.

The hotel is right downtown, and walkable to anything. The prices seem really reasonable for Seattle too.

Allow us to provide you with the ultimate Seattle experience whether you’re here for business, a fun getaway or a family vacation. No matter how you like to spend your time, Loews Hotel 1000, Seattle is the ideal backdrop considering our prime location to the major Seattle attractions as well as our stunning water view accommodations.
We had a really great time here.Go for a room with a view of Puget Sound – it’s well worth the extra. We had a king room. The bed was super comfortable, the extra amenities like fresh coffee maker appreciated. The bathroom spacious and well equipped.The only slight negative was only one armchair to enjoy the view, not two. But for all the stylish luxe amenity the real standout is the people. They were all helpful, knowledgeable, smart and personable. And gay friendly – a real plus. It was the Hotel 1000 staff who made our stay in Seattle first class.
The location was great, very close to pike place market, the pier, light rail to the airport, as well as the monorail to the space needle, and also a target. All of these within a 5-10 minute walk!
This hotel is close to the midway point between Century Link Field and Pike Place Market. You can get to either within a 15 minute walk without being swarmed by other tourists. It’s also a short walk to one of my favourite buildings – the Seattle Public Library.
 I will put it simply… I love the Loews 1000 in Seattle. I have stayed here a few times, and it is always my go to when traveling to Seattle for work. The hospitality is exceptional, the hotel is well appointed and quiet (which can be a rarity in downtown Seattle). Every time I have stayed, I have been upgraded to a junior suite. The rooms make me want to come straight back to my hotel room after a long day of work (or a long day of touristing).
The hotel is always clean, and each room I’ve stayed in is large and very well appointed. This hotel perfectly mixes modern amenities and decor with classic touches and hospitality. The beds are so comfortable it makes it hard to get up in the morning, and the very “extra” bathtubs in the suites are a treat. The hotel is also in a prime location. Storyville Coffee is right across the street, and It’s a 10 minute walk to Pike Place Market, with lots of great restaurants in its direct vicinity.
In a bustling downtown area like Seattle where hotels can feel chaotic, overcrowded, and loud, the Loews always feels like a quiet, peaceful oasis to come back to in the evenings.

Guests can enjoy hosted wine hour featuring local Washington wineries every night in our lobby between 5-6pm.

If you love the hipster sensibility but hate the attitude, this hotel is for you. We were able to early check-in by desk-clerk Ms. Pinball, where we learned about the Pinball Museum, a pinball app and other unknown facts about Seattle.

The room was quiet and we enjoyed the company of Simon, our goldfish. Join the perks program, and wireless is free, strong and reliable. The morning Starbucks coffee was a bonus. It’s close to everything, and on the day of departure, the staff made arrangements for an ultra-early car to the airport. Top notch all the way, and gay-friendly to boot.

The rooms are spotless, fresh and delightful with an eclectic mix of furnishings and decorative items. Complimentary newspapers and fresh coffee are available early in the early morning and wine and cider served in the entrance every evening. The location is perfect — walking distance to Pike Place Market, Piers 66 and 67 at the waterfront, the Great Wheel, Pioneer Square, the Seattle Art Museum and the Seattle library — and surrounded by coffee shops and restaurants. We will certainly return here.

Great location and can take light rail from airport, bus system, etc. Really do not need a car. Bed is very comfortable and we found it to be very quiet (4th floor; away from elevator).

Nice complimentary wine hour, appetizers could have been better. Staff very pleasant and helpful
Cons: Only one chair in room, but two double beds..need at least one more chair. Need more outlets in bathroom. Don’t expect any great views, but overall nice stay. Small gym, but you get exercise walking Seattle. High resort fee, but most hotels charge that to boost bottom line.

. It’s truly the best property in downtown Seattle! Not only is its location perfect, (it’s close to great restaurants, the SAM, Pike’s Market, etc) but the hotel itself is just *lovely*. We usually stay in a Monaco suite. It’s great: spacious with great appointments. The lobby of the hotel is lovely. And they have a complimentary happy hour serving delicious wines selected by the concierge. There is often live entertainment as well.

Outlier” is a fantastic restaurant at the Hotel Monaco. The menu is a delicious combination of PNW delicacies coupled with farm fresh local ingredients. We had their burger twice, it was delicious. The pizza from their room service menu is wonderful.

The hotel itself is in a great location. Pioneer Square, Pike’s Place Market, and the Monorail at Westlake are an easy walk. There is a grocery store a couple blocks over as well. It was a $5-6 Lyft each way to the Clipper Vacations Pier.

I got a lovely king bed room on the 7th floor. It had a nice view of the Seattle Public Library. My preference of a room away from the elevator was met as well. The room was very clean and nicely appointed. There was plenty of space.

The room was very quiet. I barely heard anything at all other than occasionally the door of the room next door.

I was VERY impressed with the Housekeeping Staff. I never saw anyone or anything in the hallway until the last day when I saw that they bring their version of a cart into the room as well. It’s a very nice touch to not see the cart or hear the vacuuming of a room with a door propped open. There was a very clear attention to detail in the cleaning as well.

The hand soap bar disintegrated once wet and made a terrible mess of pieces sticking to the soap dish each time I put it down. Every day, that soap dish was wiped clean and the remaining pieces left neatly behind. Everything was very clean.
