A few years ago, Seattle was named the most miserable city for sports heartbreak, given how very, very close we’ve come to so many championships before our hopes were blown to pieces. That’s turned around recently, and though we still sport some heartache (let us not discuss Super Bowl XLIX … ever), this is one of the most fantastic cities to catch a game, with gorgeous stadiums and fans who take cheering as seriously as they do working for Microsoft and Amazon. Get in on the action by staying at Hotel Monaco, the ideal place to hang your hat if you’re looking for a hotel within convenient walking distance to the SoDo neighborhood’s stadiums, which include:
- Safeco Field: Home of Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners, Safeco Field features real grass, a retractable roof, and plenty of Pacific Northwest concessionaires offering inventive food (plus all the classic baseball treats). Tours are offered year-round.
- Centurylink Field (aka the Clink): Comfortable seats, great views wherever you sit, and a reputation for being one of the loudest stadiums in all the land make CenturyLink a fun place to watch the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and the MLS’s Seattle Sounders do battle.
