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!
