The Seattle City Hall is a lovely building  that offers sweeping views of downtown Seattle.  It is a gorgeous structure on the outside as seen from many different viewpoints.  Its lobby is really attractive and it features several permanent art works.

Photographers should take note of this building for its exterior and interior scenery.  The City Hall offers dramatic views either looking down from the Fifth Avenue level as well as looking up at the building from Fourth Avenue.

If you get thirsty, City Grind runs a coffee shop on the Fifth Avenue lobby.  The espresso is delicious.
