What kind of rental car should I get for Westlake?

Westlake is a great place to base yourself to explore Seattle and beyond. Situated just 1 mile from the downtown area, you'll likely be doing a mix of city and open-road driving.

If it's a bit of both, choose a standard car so you'll have the best of both worlds — practicality and comfort.
