Welcome to the Red Lion Hotel Bellevue
Upscale Bellevue Washington has long been known for
its exciting shopping, and it's no wonder! Everywhere you look in
downtown Bellevue, you will find nationally-recognized stores,
elegant boutiques and galleries offering the usual and the unusual
for sale. But in recent years, Bellevue has grown into something
much more. As Washington's fifth-largest city, it is the center of
the Seattle area's growing Eastside communities, with a reputation
for quality neighborhoods, strong businesses, low crime and schools
that rank among the best in the nation. Bellevue's downtown is
becoming more and more vibrant with a mix of retail, residential,
commercial and cultural space, and the rising skyline of office
space is projected to double over the next few years.
Bellevue sits between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish, about
10 miles west of the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. There are
over 1,700 acres of parkland within city limits offering everything
from a comfortable bench for a break from shopping to kayaking to
exploration of wetland habitats. The award-winning Bellevue
Botanical Garden is certainly not to be missed for a breath of
fragrant Northwest air and stunning floral beauty.
Old Bellevue, with quaint downtown charm, is developing into an
increasingly popular spot for shopping, dining and entertainment.
Jazz is definitely the sound of Bellevue and it's easy to find
during the summer at Bellevue Downtown Park, the center of outdoor
events and activities. Other music, dance, theater and film,
featuring Bellevue's accomplished performing arts groups as well as
big-name entertainment, fill the schedule at the Theatre at
Meydenbauer Center. And if all that isn't enough Seattle is just
over the bridge.
