It was very clear today. You could see Mt. Rainier and the Olympics. The interior of the Smith Tower building is gorgeous as well.

Great views of So Seattle--very different perspective than Space Needle- Fun to go up on the old OTIS elevator run by an operator. Marble walls on first floor sparkle.

The views of Seattle and the natural beauties surrounding are camera worthy. Use your zoom for some interesting architectural photos. Read up on the history of the Tower from their website before you go. Your experience here will be the road less traveled. Ask questions of the host there in the Chinese Room where the observation deck is located. They have time for you. I felt like a guest in a very special place. Be sure to notice each unique floor on the way up the vintage elevator as you can see through the metal-caged doors, and maybe even elevator dance step like in Thoroughly Modern Millie :)

From Our Editors

When it was built in 1914, the Smith Tower was the tallest building west of the Mississippi. Though it lost that designation a mere 17 years later, the tower still captivates Seattle visitors with the Smith Tower Observation Deck. The open-air deck wraps around the tower's 35th floor and grants panoramic views of the city's modern downtown and Puget Sound. Seattle's gorgeous surrounding landscapes are visible from the tower as well, with the majestic peaks of Mount Rainer and the Olympic Mountain Range creating a stunning horizon. And the journey to the observation deck is a treat in and of itself. Passengers ride in one of the last manually operated elevators on the West Coast, which is caged in brass and copper in the style of the early 20th century. In the lobby itself, 22 Indian head sculptures watch over the onyx- and marble-paneled room, acting as precursors to the grandeur of the tower's top floors.
