No,this is not a cruise but a four-story hotel.Its main entrance is on the right.
The waterfront of Seattle,Belltown,has about 100 piers on of them was known as pier 67 during World War II and in our days known as Edgewater.
The Edgewater (formerly the Edgewater Inn and, briefly when first constructed, the Camelot) is a four-story, 223-room hotel in Seattle, Washington, United States. It is located on the Central Waterfront on a pier over Elliott Bay (a bay of Puget Sound) and is the only over-water, and water-front hotel in the Seattle area. Shortly after it was built, shoreline zoning changes precluded the construction of further hotels on piers.In its early years, the hotel advertised on its north elevation that you could "fish from your room."
The hotel is particularly famous for hosting The Beatles when they visited Seattle in 1964 at the height of Beatlemania.Because of the Beatles' connection to the hotel, there is a Beatles-themed suite and the hotel has hosted several Beatles-related events and tributes in recent years.Other famous guests have included Led Zeppelin (who were banned from the hotel after their second infamous stay there,the Rolling Stones,Frank Zappa,and U.S. president Bill Clinton. However,Robert Plant was welcomed back to the hotel during his recent concert in Seattle. The Edgewater is also a filming location in the 1992 season 3 episode "It Happened in Juneau" of Northern Exposure.
The hotel sits on the site of the onetime Galbraith-Bacon Pier, renamed Pier 67 during World War II. It also incorporates part of the area of the former Pier 68 (the Booth Fisheries Pier). Both old piers were demolished to build the hotel. The hotel was originally intended to open in time for the Century 21 Exposition, Seattle's 1962 world's fair. Originally named the Camelot, it soon became the Edgewater Inn (more recently, just The Edgewater).

An interesting article about the hotel, with a description ...
A nice view of the hotel ...
Good shot and perspective, beautiful architecture and details shown on the facade, a nice reflection on the water and colors.
Nice location and hotel.
Nice afternoon and all the best.
Subhogen (4065) 2014-01-15 8:30
Nice view of the hotel on wharf presented over here. Very aptly named both photo and the hotel. Good POV chosen to show the facade of the hotel. The mountain in the distance acts as an attractive focal point. Thanks for the sharing this unique place.
ikeharel (54087) 2014-01-15 8:35
Good POV from an askewed angle over this hotel, I can only imagine how it feels to wake up in mornings and look out over to the sea.
Fine clear view on, mountains on far side of the bay exquisitely shown.
aleXundar (1256) 2014-01-15 9:31
What a great pov to show this beautiful hotel! The mountain in bg is really a great attraction. Wonderful colors and clarity.
A superb shot.
point-blank (156) 2014-01-15 9:43
Nice composition. Love the way you have used converging lines to create illusion of depth in the photograph. And colors are just splendid :)
ourania (28278) 2014-01-15 9:47
πολύ ελκυστική η προοπτική της σύνθεσής σου καθώς και ο τρόπος που παίζει με την αντίληψη του θεατή σχετικά με το μήκος της αποβάθρας και του ξενοδοχείου. Μου αρέσει πολύ η διαρκής εναλλαγή και επαναληψη μοτίβων που εντείνουν τη δυναμική. Το ήρεμο φόντο προσφέρει πολύ καλή αντίθεση. Πραγματικά απολαυστικό το φως και τα χρώματα. Μου αρέσουν επίσης πολύ η υφή της θάλασσας και οι αντανακλάσεις. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

A very interesting hotel
I like frame and perspective.
jurek1951 (40949) 2014-01-15 10:32
great view with spectacular composition, the colours and lights are very nice, the POV is splendid,
krzychu30 (15348) 2014-01-15 10:47
very nice memory shot from your trip to the USA.
I must say at first I also thought it was a boat:)
Someone had great idea for unique hotel.
I like also your presentation-the POV and angle are superb to capture and convey the Hotel and its uniqueness.
Have a nice evening
boa (5845) 2014-01-15 11:09
the guests at this hotel have an excellent seaview from their rooms, it is also fun to have a room on a pier. Nice perspective with the mountains visible in the background, perfect clarity, sharpness and colors!
Have a nice evening/
manrezaei (1837) 2014-01-15 11:43
Very well frames the Edgewater.
The colors, sharpness and reflection very well framed.
pierrefonds (55676) 2014-01-15 13:10
The distance between the hotel and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the architecture of the hotel. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
mcmtanyel (11571) 2014-01-15 13:26
A well-considered POV emphasizing the repeating patterns of the side of the hotel, its reflection on the water makes this a lovely photo. I'll have to scold you, though. Why did you write graffiti on the side of the pier? It's your name, you must have written it. I hope you used sidewalk chalk and not paint.
Alco (6758) 2014-01-15 19:06
Very nice point of view on that hotel.I like the inclusion of the mountains in the background.Great sharpness.Your note is very interesting.Very well done.
Have a nice day.
kato (11630) 2014-01-15 20:18
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tasteful four-story hotel whis is built in pier faced to the calm bay. It also looks like functional hotel. And, it's interesting to hear that guests can do the fishing from their room. It's a good view for mountain seen in the distance. And, the reflection projected to the water draws out an additional good effect.
Corry (4508) 2014-01-15 20:42
Beau point de vue sur cet hôtel construit sur pilotis avec les montagnes en arrière plan. J'ose croire que chaque client de l'hôtel est assuré d'avoir une vue sur la mer. Belle lumière sur le bâtiment. Bien fait.
Sonata11 (33201) 2014-01-15 21:07
Hello Danos, beautifully this picture has been taken. Colors, sharpness, clarity and I like your POV. Perfectly well done. Tfs.
All the best,
dkmurphys (47628) 2014-01-15 23:47
Very fine capture of this original structure. I like the pov and the colors. Peaceful atmosphere, well taken.
papagolf21 (83986) 2014-01-16 0:40
Bonjour, cher Danos,
voilà une image édifiante et très intéressante. Un grand merci pour la note très documentée et l'image qui met en valeur cet hôtel sur pilotis.
mesutilgim (81320) 2014-01-16 0:41
Hello dear Danos,
A great jump from Greece to US !!
Anyhow that's TE .. Learning without a limit and without any manmade borders.
Never had heard about this interesting Inn in Belltown.
Quite ineresting entry both with it's photographic and informative qualifications.
TFS and have a nice day
RhodieIke (11512) 2014-01-16 3:14
An intriguing photo you have posted when viewed in the in small I thought it a cruise ship. An interesting note about this hotel, you have captured, managed and presented it well .Tfs,
Didi (55465) 2014-01-16 3:53
Nice place for spending holidays
Interesting lateral perspective and good lights/shades balance
Best wishes for 2014
jacquest (18385) 2014-01-16 5:16
I like the oblique line of the hotel that leads the eye to the snow covered mountain. The good light enhances the colors and give good details of the architecture of this hotel.
abmdsudi (41152) 2014-01-16 5:43
A pleasing simple shot with the emphasis is given to imposing structures and colourfully bright. You are obviously attracted to blue water as much as i do boosting the overall impact of the waterfront. Clarity is subtle in vivid details as is the composition and pov. Well done, TFS
Miguel82 (21702) 2014-01-16 7:35
Hello Danos, from outside I don't think that hotel deserve the rank of 4 stars, anyway a brillant picture with high sharpness as usual and a volcano I guess in the bg with some snow on the summit, good light, thanks, see you
Noel_Byrne (22092) 2014-01-16 8:42
What a strange and unique building! It really does look like a cruise ship, so a brilliant design considering its place on the landscape! I love the view deep down to the mountains across the water and all under such a beautiful sky and light!
A really fascinating post!
All the best
jmdias (53487) 2014-01-16 15:50
a curious hotel, located in a strange place. nice use of the pov showing the building and its structures for two angles. nice light and details. TFS.,
bukitgolfb301 (34924) 2014-01-16 16:27
Hi dear Danos, how are you?
Not a ship but a hotel! So unioque and intersting indeed, I want to stay, if possible. Great angle, framework, color and so on perfect as usual!
All the best and have a good day! TAKERO
jcpix (12508) 2014-01-16 16:47
Just as the name suggests, right on the edge. :) I don't believe I've ever seen a hotel like this before, this is quite interesting and unique. You've done a fine job in showcasing its dimension and location, taking a good angle to show ample surrounding and presence on the water. This would be a fun place to stay, something out of the ordinary. You've caught this at a prime moment too, bathed in warm sunlight to enhance the atmosphere and provide a colorful reflection along the pier supports. Love the originality of this place, and for showing us something new. Enjoy the day ahead.
imageme (1625) 2014-01-16 18:46
Hi Danos, Very special built of this hotel. Great notes. Excellent management of light along with great POV and depth. Definitely worth 2 points. Thank for sharing

Very interesting to see this hotel. Perfect diagonal capture, with good detials

Geia sou Danos
The Edgewater is quite a masterly building indeed and you show the best of it with fine details.
I presume the guests can fish for trout from their own window!
Nice shot with a view on mountainous backdrop.
adramad (36261) 2014-01-17 7:38
Fantastic composition with this POV, which gives a leak diagonally from this highly original and attractive building, thereby increasing the sense of perspective on the same, this incredible hotel, practically anchored in the sea, the feeling there must be like to be in a ship without movement.
A day with good light that gives very good color.
The brightness and sharpness are also perfect.
Have a good weekend.
All the best.
Waylim (25172) 2014-01-17 10:34
Beautiful photo with excellent light and beuatiful hotel by the sea. Washington is a beautiful state with so much nature and coast.
Good quality shot and lovely composition as always.
subhendu_bagchi (25396) 2014-01-17 10:47
it is an excellent catch. I like the warm tone of your picture. Great composition with excellent depth. Sharp details and excellent clarity made this image special. Superb. Tfs.
Cricri (102973) 2014-01-17 12:07
Génial cet hôtel sur pilotis, sa forme rectangulaire , sa composition lui donne un cachet particulier, bonne lumière et présentation
carlo62 (29355) 2014-01-17 13:49
un hotel molto originale, perfettamente fotografato, ottima la luce e belli i riflessi.
Mi piace la prospettiva e la perfetta suddivisione degli spazi.

Silvio1953 (118187) 2014-01-18 12:04
Ciao Danos, great great perspective on beautiful building, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
mirosu (12754) 2014-01-18 17:25
A very harmonious and pleasant image. I like very much the view to the hotel structure, natural blue sky, light reflections in quiet water and the depth with which we are able to enjoy the view along the hotel bridge to the mountains in BG. The play of light and shadow, the beautiful soft colors and their effective contrasts, the neat framing and the delightful atmosphere of the quiet water have produced a very elegant image.
Well done my friend.
Wish you a very nice Sunday.
HOLIDAYS in MOUNTAINS
geoant68 (331) 2014-01-18 23:41
πραγματικά ενρυπωσιακή η παρουσίαση του ξενοδοχείου επάνω στην θάλασα.Το φωε που πέφτει επάνω του αναδεικνύει τις λεπτομέρειες που μαζί με τις αντανακλάσεις το κάνει τόσο ελκυστικό για να μείνει κάποιος σ΄αυτό,
eldancer1 (26036) 2014-01-19 7:30
Good choice of location for this hotel--over water. Nice pov and it has good dof with good details. Well done, tfs.
mohammad_H (8919) 2014-01-19 7:30
View a right angle to capture this beautiful hotel on the water and docks
Clarity, sharpness, light, cool
Best wishes to you
shevchenko (19051) 2014-01-19 18:42
Good pov and good frame to show a hotel that stretching out to the sea, beautiful architecture in creative design, lovely blue sky and sea as background, distinct photo, good shoot.
mkamionka (29732) 2014-01-20 3:12
very interesting location for a hotel, and a really appropriate name for it. Nice presentation which well illustrates the uniqueness of this place. You have well included the mountain panorama far on the horizon.
Very well done!
Angshu (55035) 2014-01-23 21:48
Impressive location for a 4 star Hotel...a pier jutting into the water. The diagonal creates good depth and the snow capped mountain in the far end creates an interesting BG. Lovely shot!
josepmarin (57623) 2014-01-27 5:37
a very singular hotel placed on the water. I like the perspective with which you offers it to us, in an elegant diagonal and with the beautiful mountains in the far background. It seems a good place for to rest calmly.
The sharpness and the field depth are fantastic. Excellent shot.
parvatibb (1383) 2014-01-27 11:54
A different design and use of colors for a hotel. I like the location and the view of the front rooms where you can see the snowy mountains.TFS!
nikkitta (13921) 2014-02-06 14:04
So Pier and Hotel shared the name?
After reading your note, enjoy the well composed capture of the pier and hotel that must have a great view of sea and city ( when its not raining)
Great POV in diagonal that lead the view to the back and the mountains
Very well done
swapankumarroy (2035) 2014-08-28 7:57
Good evening, very well narrated about the four story hotel and nicely shoot it. I like its position where you shoot, good composition and nice framing. Color is quiet natural.
