Seattle is the largest seaport city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest region; and this exciting city is a creative hub for numerous company head offices (Starbucks, Microsoft, Amazon…). These innovative companies are bringing well-traveled people into the city who are seeking luxury, top-of-the-line accommodations. While Seattle is once again vying for the title of “the fastest-growing” city in the United States this year, here are two luxury hotels to check out during your next trip to fast-paced Seattle.
The Brand New Hyatt Regency Seattle Will Make You Rethink Hotel Chains…
Right across the “soon-to-be-largest convention center in the Pacific Northwest region” (scheduled to open in 2022), we find the brand new, ultra-elegant Hyatt Regency Seattle, a new headquarter hotel for the popular hotel brand. Opened last December, the 45-story hotel features 1,260 wide and luxurious guest rooms, all of which are furnished with floor-to-ceiling windows, sizable modern bathrooms, 65-inch TVs and a collection of black-and-white photographs shot by six Seattle-based photographers that highlight the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest region.
The hotel also offers an expansive Hyatt Regency Club lounge with fire pits and a wraparound patio that provides guests with stellar views of downtown Seattle. Forget everything you thought you knew about hotel chains. The Hyatt Regency Seattle may be the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest, but it is absolutely memorable and far from boring or impersonal. Built in a former train station, the lobby and common areas are breathtaking, showcasing local art pieces and large windows that create a dramatic and spectacular ambiance as soon as you walk in. As for the rooms, they are all modern, chic, elegant and spacious. If you are not afraid of heights, select a room located on the top floors (there are 45!) and do not forget to visit the brilliant on-site restaurant, Andare Kitchen, or the 24 H Market for a homemade coffee, pastry or snack. A hotel stay you certainly won’t forget, located in the heart of the business district.
The Edgy Thompson Seattle and Its Legendary Rooftop Bar…
Speaking of rooftop patios, there are very few in Seattle, a city known for its unpredictable weather. The Nest, Thompson Seattle’s iconic rooftop bar, cocktail lounge and terrace, hovers above the urban hustle of Pike Place Market and Seattle’s waterfront and offers unbeatable views of the city. The rooftop offers indoor and outdoor seating areas, vibrant music and festive ambiance.
Thompson Seattle is a trendy, modern and sexy boutique hotel with plenty of character. Located near the waterfront (and walking distance from Pike Market), this luxury boutique hotel reflects the intrinsic beauty of Seattle, and raises the bar for future construction in the city. Conceived by Seattle’s own award-winning Olson Kundig Architects, Thompson Seattle is a contemporary urban landmark. The rooms offer hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Pike Place Market; along with an overall minimalist and sleek decor with a mid-century-inspired boutique-style. A creative and inspiring hotel for those wishing to stay in style and enjoy an opulent time in the most creative city in the Northwest Pacific.
