You will have to park in the Columbia Center garage. Street parking at a meter near Columbia Center is virtually nonexistent and is limited to 2 hours.

Stunning 360 degree views. Great value - a real must if the weather is good. Mesmerizing actually. Genuine 360 view of Seattle and the surrounding area. I was very lucky with the weather as it was completely clear.

Great views of Seattle during the day including the Space Needle and Mt Rainier. Good value for money and we were able to return the same day - they stamp your hand, so we revisited the same day at sunset which was amazing.

It was worth going out of our way to visit the Sky View Observatory. Reasonably priced entry and great views all round. Interesting information also displayed on the walls.

The 360 degree view from the 73rd floor overlooking Seattle is amazing! You can look down on Space Needle, all of the downtown and suburbs of the city, see the surrounding countryside and volcanoes, and get a good sense of the geography of the region....More

Prices very reasonable compared to other attractions with views and this way you get the Space Needle in your pictures! We were very lucky and had a beautiful clear day so we could see all everything - all the islands, Mt. Baker, Mt. Ranier.

The tallest building in Seattle certainly provides the best views of the city. Amazing 360 -degree views of the Space Needle, carousel, Mt. Rainer, the islands (and the traffic). What's nice is that it's enclosed, so you're protected from inclement weather. Highly recommend!

Best views in Seattle are had here, you can walk around the 360 degree observatory and for the entrance price you can go back again when it is dark. Amazing views.
