We're finally going to take the kids to Seattle this summer! We plan on purchasing the City Pass so we can see all the sights, in addition to going to the Ballard Locks, Mariners game, etc.
Our boys are 10 and 12 and they're looking forward to flying on a plane and going to a "big city". They love seafood, don't mind museums (of any kind) and they love animals (sealife and wildlife).
I do want some relaxation time, as I don't think the kids will be able to go all day long without some down time.
First question: Is 4 nights, 5 days enough time? Too long?
Second question: Which would be better to stay at: the Holiday Inn Express at Seattle Center or Crowne Plaza downtown. Seems that the CP has a better location, but the HI Express has a pool and breakfast. We would be using hotel points to pay for our hotel stay for we're limited to Intercontinnental brands.
I look forward to your responses!
