Our Seattle hotel near Safeco Field
A mariner may be someone who navigates waters, but the Seattle Mariners navigate Major League Baseball with the same aplomb as a toughened sailor, pitching, batting, bunting, throwing, and sliding their way into our hearts season after season. If you’re looking for a place to stay within walking distance when you’re in town for a game ( Jays fans included), make your way to the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Seattle and we’ll get you geared up for a good time at the ballpark.
How much do you know about the home team? Here’s a little history:
- The Mariners played their first game in 1977. They lost, 7-0.
- In 1991, the Mariners logged their first winning season, going 83-79.
- Safeco Field opened in 1999, replacing the Kingdome, which was demolished by implosion.
- The main video screen above the center field bleachers is the largest in the MLB — just bigger than two basketball courts placed end to end.
- Learn about the history of baseball in the Northwest and see the Mariners Hall of Fame in the museum located on the main level between sections 132 and 138.
- The Mariners have had some amazing players over the years, from Ken Griffey Jr. to Randy Johnson to Ichiro Suzuki. Who’s hot now? Look for these headliners: Pitching ace Felix Hernandez, Seven-time all-star Robinson Cano, Gold Glove third baseman Kyle Seager, and American League Championship Series MVP Nelson Cruz

Blue Jays play at Safeco Field Aug 2 – 5, 2018
Every year when the Toronto Blue Jays come to town, something interesting happens: The Canadian team’s fans literally flock to Safeco Field. In recent years, they’ve actually outnumbered Mariners fans, even though Toronto is a not-exactly-convenient 2,000 miles away. And who could blame them? Seattle is beautiful, Safeco Field is a great place to watch a game, and the Blue Jays are the only Canadian team left in MLB, giving them an entire country for a fan base.
While Safeco Field games garner an average attendance of about 25,000, that skyrockets to 40,000 when the Blue Jays are playing. We love our neighbors to the north, so whether you’re rooting for the home team or belting out “O Canada,” we welcome you just the same at Kimpton Hotel Monaco Seattle.
This event only happens once a year, so check the MLB’s schedule when it’s released in September and plan ahead — Safeco Field turning blue and white is quite a sight to behold.
