SEATTLE Where to Stay and AccommodationHello everyone,
I'll be staying in Seattle for one night in January and I was wondering what part of town I should stay in if I want to be close to the bars, and places where they have good music, and where one can experience the good local music scene! If you can also help me with the name of a good hotel in the area that is reasonably priced I would appreciate it!
Thanks and happy holidays....

1If staying forone night I assume you are coming from the airport or train station. If so, I'd recommend stayng in Belltown (adjacent downtown and the Pike Street Market) or a little further north at the Seattle Center (Queen Anne neighborhood). Nice thing about Belltown is you can walk the area including downtown - it is quiet and safe.
Queen Anne is also quiet and safe but further waway fron downtown (although you can still walk it - about a mile and a half or so). The recently remodelled Econo-Inn on roy is a good place to stay and you can walk to Seattle Center from there to see any events or activities goin on there.
Thre are many bars and clubs with live music in and around Belltown. Teh City Hostel is teh ceapest option at around $35. Other than that, hotels downtown are partty expensive - much more so if you are driving as parking fees can be outrageous.

2We were in Seattle in August and stayed at the Ace Hotel. We got a room with a private bath which was about $200 a night but you can get shared bath rooms which are much cheaper. I think its in the Belltown area, there were lots of restaurants and bars nearby, and it seemed a nice enough neighbourhood. It was about a ten minute walk from Pikes Place and a similar distance to the Space Needle. All in all it was a really good option, plus they have make-your-own-waffles for breakfast.

3Meant to say, I have gotten good hotel deals in Seattle by bidding a room on PriceLine. But again, careful of the parking charges if you have a car - these charges aren't included in room rates and can run up to $50 - even $60 per night - outrageous!
#2, yes - The Ace Hotel is in Belltown http://www.hotels.com/ho211659/ace-hotel-seattle-united-states/?gclid=CJyK_uerhrQCFQmCQgodCiQAWQ

4Not sure if this is what you are looking for but if you wanted a nice hostel, the Green Tortoise (did I spell that right?) is located directly across the street from Pike's Market and was pretty nice. Breakfast included, spacious common room and the bathrooms were clean. You could probably get a private room if you wanted. Not sure though if this is adequately situated near night life. Maybe a few others who are more familar with the city can let you know.
