MORE DETAILS The Brass Bed Guestroom is an apartment in the basement of our turn-of-the-century home in the residential part of Capitol Hill. It has been recently renovated to provide all the amenities to make your stay comfortable. The queen-size bed plus a sofa bed can accommodate one to four persons .See “Notes” under Rates for additional charge for more than two guests. In addition to the sofa and several side chairs, the living room area has a 60” HDTV with a high-definition cable connection including a premium package with FREE Netflix movies, On Demand programs and special programming. High-speed Internet (WiFi) is also provided at no extra cost. Enjoy the designated work/study space that has a built-in desk and overhead lighting for your laptop. The large kitchen is in a separate room. It has a full-size gas range and refrigerator, microwave oven (with popcorn provided) and dining table that can comfortably seat four. You’ll have a coffeepot (with fresh regular or decaf coffee ground to your taste), teapot (with a selection of teas), toaster, blender and all the pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils you might need. We also provide an ironing board, iron, hair dryer and even a couple of umbrellas should you get an opportunity to experience Seattle’s liquid sunshine. The bathroom has a full-size tub with a shower and a ceiling heater for added comfort. All the necessary towels and linens are included. As a matter of information, the apartment is in the basement of the house that was constructed in 1907, thus the ceiling height and door openings are a bit lower than normal. And there is one step up to the house from the driveway and then five steps down to the apartment that persons with physical limitations could find challenging. We have designed our backyard to provide a great place to relax and entertain. There’s plenty of seating area, a BBQ, large table with umbrella, and a big fish pond with a water feature to provide a peaceful ambience. Our driveway will easily accommodate your car at no additional cost. A private side entrance with a keypad lock affords easy access and security. A few stairs take you down to the actual entrance of the apartment with its own entry door. With respect to security, we have a centrally monitored security and fire detection system and a newly installed camera system. Public transportation is one block away. The #49 Metro bus will take you to the Capitol Hill business and entertainment district, to downtown Seattle and north to the University of Washington. This bus also connects you to nearly all parts of Seattle’s metropolitan area and even to the airport via our ever-expanding light rail “Link” system. If you are flying into Seattle, the Link and the Metro bus provide door-to-door service to the Brass Bed Guestroom. Walking, biking and maybe one of the many daily rentable cars are other good transportation options. And how about a water taxi to West Seattle for fish and chips and a volleyball game on the beach, or a ferry ride to Vashon Island or to the San Juan Islands, or even an overnight getaway to Victoria, British Columbia?

Interaction with guests
We truly enjoyed hosting our guests and welcoming them into our home for over 7 years. We like to think that we are in the hospitality business and not in the hotel business. It's our interest and desire to assist you in any way we can - from the time of your initial inquiry until we say goodbye. With a separate and private entrance you're welcome to come and go as you like but know that we are always just a knock on our door, or a phone call or a text away.

Our Brass Bed Guestroom is located in Seattle's historic Capitol Hill neighborhood. It’s in a residential section that welcomes visitors. It safe and secure with the comfort and convenience of a home-style environment. You will be minutes away from the city center and the surroundings neighborhoods, parks, and activities. Short on time, there are 6 restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Public transportation (Metro buses) is one block away and is one of the best ways to get around. Seattle is a very accessible city with many sights and things to do without the need for a car. To help with planning we have developed a list of the most popular things to do and have coupled it with a suggested itinerary.
Getting around
Use of public transportation is very convenient. The Seattle Metro bus system is but a block away from our house and can take you to city center in just 15 minutes. This same system coupled with the light rail system can take you directly to/from Seattle Tacoma International airport. And of course there are still more options via Uber Lyft, Car2Go, ZipCar, taxis, bicycles, Segways and of course walking! Let us know and we’ll help you put a plan together that fits your interests.
