We Reviewed the Reviews and the Folks Love the Bellevue Club
The Bellevue Hotel and Club complex sits on nine acres in Bellevue, WA just minutes outside of Seattle. The Club portion comprises an astounding 200,000 square feet that includes every amenity imaginable. The pool, pictured above, provides a visual of what to expect throughout the facility.
The review were not as obvious as some of the spas we have reviewed, in that most reviews for the club were mixed with reviews for the hotel, the catering department, and the restaurants. The overall ratings for the entire business, were universally above 8 out of ten, but when you narrowed the reviews to the club, there seemed to be only one complaint; the locker rooms. Well, the locker rooms are spanking brand new and state-of-the art now. And the steam rooms have the luxury touch of automatically injected eucalyptus oil pumped into the steam.
Even with the negative reviews on the locker rooms, most reviewers of the Club and Spa gave 9 out of 10 or higher. The common phrase was that this was the most luxurious spa in town.
The club provides personal trainers, classes, spa treatments of every kind, in addition to facilities for working out on your own. Here is the list provided by the company:
Conditioning StudioThe Bellevue Club recently unveiled its new Conditioning Studio with a brand-new TRX training system. Members now benefit from expert trainers and the newest fitness technology in a boutique gym setting. Near the Pilates and Yoga studios, the Conditioning Studio provides personal trainer services at lower group training costs.
What exactly is TRX?

The Bellevue Club fitness team has taken it a step further by offering more than 40 different specialty training classes.
