While you can’t go wrong with one of the best hotels in town, staying in one of the best Airbnbs in Seattle guarantees you'll be immersed in the fabric of the city in a different way. You can still find a place to stay near all the best Seattle attractions and best Seattle restaurants, but you’ll also get a sense of what it’s really like to live in this city. There’s an Airbnb for every type of traveler, too: City dwellers can stay in a sleek, modern downtown loft, while architecture buffs might want to opt for an historic Tudor home. And if you need another selling point, consider the Instagram opportunities—almost all of these Seattle Airbnbs are interior design goals.
