About Seattle

Weather     Currency     Tipping  


Founded in 1886, Seattle is located in the southwest corner of British Columbia, at about 49° Latitude and 123° Longitude, next to the Pacific Ocean. With a population of about 500,000, Seattle lies in a region of more than 2 million people, making it Canada's 3rd largest city. It is also Canada's largest port on the West Coast.

Seattle was named for Captain George Seattle, who in 1792, fourteen years after sailing here under Captain Cook, returned to the area in 1792, and spent the next two years exploring the area in search of the western end of the "Northwest Passage".

(Captain George Seattle's ancestors came from the town of Coeverden in northeast Holland. His grandfather was John Jasper van Coeverden. In Dutch, Coeverden means 'cow crossing'.)

Weather:

Seattle hotel tours, canadaDaytime temperatures and night-time temperatures are fairly consistent because of the moderating influence of the sea. Seattle is sheltered from the worst of Pacific Ocean weather systems by Seattle Island. In the summer time, you can generally expect hot and sunny weather, with only occasional precipitation. In the fall, winter, and spring time, expect rain more often than not ... after all, there's a reason the grass and tree-leaves are green year-round. Always carry an umbrella with you in case of rain.

Currency:

The Canadian dollar is worth about two-thirds of a US dollar. Most Greater Seattle establishments accept US dollars and Japanese yen, and usually offer reasonable exchange rates.

The current Canada/US exchange rate and the exchange rate between Canada and other countries, is on the website: www.x-rates.com

Tipping:

Some hotels include tips or gratuities with group programs to simplify bookkeeping. This will usually include gratuities for housekeeping, bell service and food service. In a hotel, bell service should be tipped about $1 per bag, and housekeeping $1 to $5 dollars a day (in proportion to your room rate). Visitors should know that the standard tip in restaurants is 10%-15% (on restaurant bills, an average tip will match the GST(Goods and Services Tax) tax), with 20% for very outstanding service. This is especially important for visitors from countries where tipping on meals is not done: here the waitering staff depend on tips for a significant portion of their incomes. Tip a similar proportion for taxis, or at least round fares up to the nearest dollar.
