The Woodmark Hotel is just a short drive from downtown Seattle, but upon checking in, it feels like a resort far away from city life. The hotel is nestled on the shores of Lake Washington in the small city of Kirkland and is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. Check out a bike or kayak, or rent a paddleboard or jet ski for exploring Lake Washington. If wine tasting is your thing, you’ll love the great access to Woodinville (about 15 minutes north of the hotel), which is home to over 100 wineries! For kids, there is a large play area just a few blocks from the hotel. But the event that families love the most and that kids will talk about forever is the 10 pm FREE “Raid the Pantry.” Trekaroo families love this activity that entails from 10 pm to 1 am where guests have access to a small room full of snacks, soups, sandwiches, soft drinks, and more! Room rates start at $219.
