Situated downtown within walking distance of Pike Place Market, this 26-story boutique hotel evokes a 21st-century European chic beginning with the lobby, which is adorned with candlelit tables, marble floors, and a collage of bold original artwork. In the Living Room, custom-designed board games and velvet couches entice visitors to relax beside the fireplace. Equally stylish are the 424 pet-friendly guestrooms, designed with dark woods, earth tones, black-and-white photos of Seattle, and large picture windows. The award-winning Earth & Ocean restaurant serves regional cuisine, while the W Bar—which occasionally hosts live DJ’s—is popular with both guests and locals.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
