Great way to wake up and eat breakfast with a 360 view of Seattle and delicious food. Crabs Benedict was to die for and the options for starters was wonderful. Dessert was delicious - berries with cream. Highly recommend!

It is my second visit to this place and still I can't get enough. It's worth it to pay the $15 entrance fee. The views are amazing + if you need to work, there is a coffee shop with a bar overlooking the bay. What an office right? During working days, only working days, there is a Starbucks on the... More

We've visited the Sky View Observatory several times in recent months with a number of international visitors. We highly recommend this place over the Space Needle for awesome views and it's less expensive.

This is the tallest building in Seattle with a superb view of the city and Space Needle. I went just before dark and took great photos at night and during the day. The highest Starbucks in the country is located on the 40th floor exactly where you change elevator to get to the observatory deck. Now, while sipping coffee at... More

The view was wonderful! You could see in all directions. There was no line, and we even got a discount for being old! It was very relaxing. I would recommend checking out this place.

We enjoyed the 360 panoramic view of the city. Great view of Space Needle and all the areas surrounding the city. The lounge area was very relaxing, and it was nice to be able to sit back and enjoy the view without being elbow-to-elbow with fellow tourists.

Great views here and about half price of space Needle. You can see the Space Needle from there and all of the city. Park a few blocks down garage next to the US Bank for $3 hr.

The view is amazing. We went up in the afternoon and then sat around to watch the change to night time. We were there for four hours. Never got very busy. No problems bringing in a camera bag with cameras and lenses and tripod. If you have a smart phone, put the camera up to the glass to avoid reflections.... More

Incredible views of Seattle - if the visibility is good, it's well worth a trip to the top to take in the view.
