Seattle Urban Retreat is centrally located at the cusp of Washington Park/Madison Valley, across E. Madison Street from the Arboretum with its Japanese Garden. There is a shopping area less than a half block away with day spa, chocolate, teriyaki, French desserts and take-home meals, wine and espresso.

You can whisk down town easily from the bus stop across E. Madison, and our proximity to the Highway 520 East entrance makes trips to the eastside (Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland) and the Cascad... more
