Boutique Hotels in Seattle, WA
If you're coming to Seattle and want to get a feeling for the true pulse of what's hot and happening in the city, book a room at Hotel Max. Located right next to the center of the shopping and restaurant district of downtown, Hotel Max is everything a boutique hotel should be -- fun and full of personality with personable staff who can help you find the best of what Seattle has to offer. And true to Seattle form, there is a Starbucks just steps from the front door of Hotel Max to get your coffee fix and feel like a true Seattle-ite!
Just outside of Seattle, in Woodinville Wine Country, you'll find Willows Lodge. Perfect for a cozy getaway, it only takes 20-minutes from downtown Seattle to get to Woodinville, but you'll feel like you are hundreds of miles away. Spend the day exploring the over 200 wineries and tasting rooms in the area, then head back to your room, which all have fireplaces and luxurious soaking tubs. Hungry after all that wine? Barking Frog is perfect for grabbing a delicious bite before crawling into bed.
It's hard to deny the luxury at Hotel 1000 in downtown Seattle. Between the famous soaking tubs that fills from the ceiling, decedent room-service menu, champagne at check-in and bellhops who get your bags to your room before you're even checked in, they have every little detail covered. Looking for a place with a little something extra for him AND her? Send her to the Spaahh at Hotel 1000 to relax while he spends the afternoon at The Golf Club, an indoor digital golf experience. And since we are in Seattle, let's not forget about the coffee -- each room comes equipt with it's own personal French press.
Hotel Deca in Seattle's University District is a bit off of the beaten path, but well-worth checking out, especially if you're in town for an event related to the University of Washington. We love Hotel Deca for being a boutique hotel with exceptionally large rooms, which are great if you're in Seattle for an extended stay. It will be hard to pick where to eat around Hotel Deca because there are endless options -- we recommend Shultzy's on University Avenue for a yummy sausage and a beer in a boot!
For a classic, traditional boutique hotel experience, try the little known Mayflower Park Hotel. It's tucked away quietly in the busiest retail section of downtown, but once you step inside the lobby, you'll be in an entirely different world. The decor is decedent and beautiful -- this is the place you want to stay during the holidays because the lobby is filled with huge decorated Christmas trees. We also love Oliver's Lounge, located in the lobby of the Mayflower Park -- it's usually packed with travelers and locals during happy hour -- they serve strong, delicious drinks and it's the perfect spot to relax after a day exploring Seattle.
