Hotels in Seattle

Hotel 1000

1000 First Avenue
Seattle, WA, 98104
(206) 957 1000
www.hotel1000seattle.com
Rooms start at $208 Neighborhood: Downtown

Hotel 1000 is dressed to impress. It’s a baby on the Seattle hotel scene (less than two years old) and was built with comfort, style, and modern amenities in mind. There are fun, super-modern touches, like body heat detectors that tell maids whether a room is vacant, and stand-alone bathtubs that fill will a stream of water coming from the ceiling, but the bottom line is comfort and luxury. This comes through in everything from the bedding and robes to the Molton Brown bath products, and it’s especially evident in the hotel’s spa (appropriately titled “SPAAAH”), which gives a mean facial. Golfers will appreciate the virtual golf lounge in the basement (you can play over 50 virtual courses with real balls!), and techies will dig the new Microsoft touch-top table in Studio 1000, a cozy lounge off the front lobby.

W Seattle

1112 4th Avenue
Seattle, WA, 98101
(206) 264 6000
www.starwoodhotels.com/whotels
Rooms start at $260 Neighborhood: Downtown

The W remains one of Seattle’s most hip hotels, with sleek rooms and a bi-level lobby that has music and small events at night (singles gatherings, and so on). A 24-hour concierge service means that anything you want is just a phone call away. Amenities like all-day in-room massages and cell phone rentals are provided to make your stay as stress and hassle-free as possible. As if that wasn’t enough, they boast a restaurant that stands on its own as a bright point in the city’s culinary scene (see Earth & Ocean, above).

The Four Seasons-Seattle

99 Union Street
Seattle, WA, 98101
(206) 749-7000
www.fourseasons.com/seattle
Rooms start at $275 Neighborhood: Downtown

The brand new Four Seasons is a spacious complex of hotel rooms and residences that looks out over the water and boasts an unrivaled location: one block from the center of Pike Place Market. The lobby is calming and spacious, and the rooms are generously sized as well with deep soaking tubs, large showers, comfy robes, and the standard L’Occitane products. The color palate of the rooms has a distinctly business feel, but there’s certainly the luxury you’d expect from the line (and the price point).

Hotel Sorrento

900 Madison Street
Seattle, WA, 98104
(800) 426-1265
www.hotelsorrento.com
Rooms start at $199 Neighborhood: Downtown

Hotel Sorrento is old luxury with its patterned damask and dark wood—an intimate place where you’ll never feel the city’s hustle and bustle. This is not the sleek wine bar, high-tech style hotel. Instead the cozy, low-lit lobby lounge is an excellent spot for a scotch in front of the fire. Suites are spacious, with a big living room, large bedroom, plush beds, and a traditional bath.
