Quick and convenient to the Convention Center

1 Comment

We were there for the State Chess Tournament. I hate to admit it but having lived in Seattle for 18 years, we’ve never been to the Tri-cities, so literally didn’t know what to expect. First of all, its super quick to get there. Just 3 hours from Seattle. The Hilton Garden is *the* place to stay if you’ve got something at the Convention Center. It is across the street. The rate was really great. $75 a night and that includes free broadband Internet access! Doesn’t include breakfast though. That’s $8 but include omelets made to order, waffles, etc. $4 for kids.

The staff there is Washington friendly. The only real bummer is the pool is pretty small, although the hot tub is warm. So if you’ve got a family thing out there, the price is good and the rooms are fine, plus there is broadband and free printing from your computer.

Big Sky meets Organics

Well, there isn’t much shopping that you can do in Big Sky, but after your hour from Bozeman, you can load up at the Hungry Moose on not just a newspaper, but really delicious roasted chicken. Since most flights to ski land get in late, that’s a great way to have a late meal.

Their salads are great too and they stock all manner of organic produce, high end crisps and other goodies. You need it before you launch yourself into the snow!
