Waking up for a 6am train trip after an exhausting day of exploring was not first on our list. But the excitement of getting to Seattle still made us hop out of bed. As Leavenworth only has one train station, and limited taxi service, make sure you book your transfer back to the train station the day before. Otherwise, you are stuck in Leavenworth until the train comes the next day. Seriously.

Once you are on the train, the three-hour trip to Seattle is absolutely gorgeous. Traversing through the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, you are surrounded by lush green land, a creek every so often, and the occasional deer. It’s calming, peaceful, and then…you’re at the ocean. When you’ve started your trip at Lake Michigan, making it to the Pacific gives you a sense of accomplishment. You’ve hit the end…but not quite yet. For the next 30 minutes, you glide along the ocean, enjoying the waves and the beautiful blue skies. Then you pull into the exquisite King Street Station in Pioneer Square, ending your Empire Builder trip. Luckily, it’s a quick cab ride away from your hotel.

 

 

YOUR HOTEL

The Fairmont Olympic

Luxury in Seattle starts here. Built in 1924, The Fairmont Olympic is Seattle’s most historic and recognizable hotel. Inside the lobby, hallways, and public rooms, you’ll enjoy the Palladian windows, gold trimmings, chandeliers, colorful carpeting, and luxurious high ceilings. In the rooms themselves, the decor is more modern, offering a fine balance of styles for your viewing pleasure.
