In the heart of Pioneer Square, Smith Tower has stood for 100 years as the Southern bookend to Seattle's skyscrapers.  Once the tallest building on the West Coast, Smith Tower offers the original view of our grand city from the 35th floor Chinese Room & Observation Deck, open to tourists daily and available for private events.  Smith Tower has also remained an office building since opening in 1914 and is home to companies of all sizes across a number of industries.

Once the West Coast's tallest building, this 1914 office tower features a 35th-floor observatory.- Google
"I would still say it has an amazing view since it's so close to the water."
"But with the Columbia tower that all changed."

Really cool viewing spot of Seattle! It used be the only amazing place to have a great view of Seattle! But with the Columbia tower that all changed. I would still say it has an amazing view since it's so close to the water. I would definitely recommend this area especially if you are looking for a different lookout point!

The customer service there is the worst I've experience. I had an office there and was treated poorly. Eventually somethings changed but not much. The reception is bad, the office doors are thin, it is often cold and there are more things wrong with trying to run a business there than right.

Let me just say first, my office is currently located in Smith Tower. The building has plenty of charm. And when I say charm, it's not a cover-up for it being old and decrepit. The building has maintained a lot of the historic elements. At the top of Smith Tower is the observation deck, which is a great place if you want to check out great views of all of Downtown Seattle.

Almost as high up as the Space Needle and much cheaper. Worth it.

My fav view in the city and love the elevators! You get a panoramic view but it feels quaint and personal. Although I do agree they could do more with the room at the top where you purchase your ticket... who cares about the inside? The view is outside!

We rented this for a private event in the spring of 2013. It is a beautiful venue with a fantastic view of the city. It's got that "old Seattle" feel. The furniture is gorgeous and the ceiling stands out especially. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

HIGHLY OVERRATED! Sure, the view is good, but it's not great. The space is completely wasted - it's an empty room with a couple of old chairs and benches. It would be much better if you could get a coffee, soda, or drink and a snack, and sit at the top and enjoy yourself. Alas, there is none of this and it's pretty boring. I wouldn't spend the money. Check out the main lobby and the elevators, and you're good to go!

The observation deck is a funky change from it's taller Seattle siblings, and you can see almost as much on a clear day.
