We parked at the Convention Center parking lot on a Sunday and the fee was only $7.00 for the entire day (we were there for 10 hours!).
Finding a parking lot nearby was a headache given all the traffic and one-way streets. Someone at the theater said the best thing to do is Google "Closest Parking near the Paramount;" then choose a spot, reserve and pay for it ahead of time. We'll definitely do this every time we need to park in Seattle in the future.
Andare Kitchen kitchen at the Hyatt. Small place but huge on service and food. Hit the happy hour before the show.
Leave home (or whereever your coming from) early!!!
The weather was It was cold.. I wore A hoodie, longsleeved tshirt, and jeans. My son wore winter clothes as well..
From the Eastside (Mercer Island Park and Ride), the bus stops across the street from the theater....Wow!
On Your Feet!
Dine before the show as the city of Seattle is basically closed by the time the evening show lets out.
The weather was Normal Seattle Summer. I wore a Suit, because its the show, theater, a performance. You dress up for this. Shorts and a tanktop aren't appropriate. .
Don't use Goldstar! They don't refund you when they issue invalid tickets!
Parking at the Convention Center is cheaper than other places and is easily accessible if you enter through Pike Street, the exit near Boren.
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
It seems to me that at the Paramount the 2nd floor of seats is as close to the stage as half the seats on the main floor. Next time, I'm going to try opting for the higher, cheeper seats.
Metropol bar and dining is across the street from rear end of the building has excellent drinks!
The weather was muggy warm rain. I wore Dress, flats and sweater. .
We ate at Dragon Fish at the Paramount Hotel just across the street. However, the Paramount theatre had hot sandwiches for purchase and they smelled great.
