Seattle 3 day trip - do I need a rental car? Going with parents and we are doing normal touristy things incl: pike place, Seattle Tower, whale watching out of Edmonds, etc. Will be finding some mid-tier Marriott hotel to stay at, so would also need to account for parking.

Nah

Parking is expensive and Uber/Lyft are easy enough that you should be okay. Sheraton Grand is pretty central and allows you to walk to most places and take the monorail from downtown to Seattle Center. Check out the neighborhoods at night after the tourist activities for better bites.

What neighborhoods would be best with parents? Eg no crazy nightlife bar scene, but still cute and walkable

Ballard has a good mix of charm and bars but not crazy bar scene by any means. Wallingford is charming too and saw Martha Stewart there for dinner once. Queen Anne as someone else mentioned and some parts of Capitol Hill closer to First Hill.

Don’t know about neighborhoods, but I still remember Elliott’s for dinner. Been many, many years now - don’t know if it’s still open or not. Discovered my love of oysters there…

Bonvoy Titanium. Did not get a complimentary suite upgrade at a Ritz, but I was offered a suite upgrade for a cost. Meaning they had some available. Can they do that? If they have suites available, don’t they have to upgrade me? I know Ritz plays by slightly different rules, so curious

Started a new role within my org <1 year ago (been with the co several years) and have received incredibly positive feedback from many people about my performance so far, including my manager. I expressed my desire to revisit my compensation (off-cycle) because I am by all accounts exceeding expectations for my role and my manager was very supportive and encouraged me to provide them with a write up of what I want and why. Any advice? I’ve researched salary comps already
