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.
With just three secluded cottages, the property eels more discreet than your average inn. At the southwest tip of Orcas Island, the five-acre property is surrounded by a rambling lawn that extends to the shore.
Porch swings and log beds lend rustic charm to the otherwise luxurious cabins. One-room units have fireplaces, jetted tubs, and mountain views.
The 84 rooms are subtly done in salvaged timber and antique slate, and outfitted with Frette linens, fireplaces, and giant Jacuzzis for two. The Burke Gilman Trail beckons cyclists to feel the wind in their hair. A full-service spa offers lengthy massages.
The cool, Old Havana style of this boutique hotel might tempt you to light up a cigar (even though it, like all Seattle hotels, is nonsmoking).
The property is comfortable and convenient—the trailheads are literally right outside your door.
With its self-consciously hearty, rustic interiors—all log and pine furniture, checks and tartans, river stones and slate—the Edgewater takes the Pacific Northwest-lodge motif to the nth degree.
The lodge has spacious rooms, books, games, and a DVD library.
Set on more than 6,000 acres of forested terrain filled with meadows and rushing rivers just 80 miles southeast of Seattle, Washington’s Suncadia Resort is the ideal mountain retreat for couples or families.
The suites have DVD players, fireplaces, and leather love seats. The hotel can arrange a guided trip to the northern segment of the Columbia river.
Like a moneyed earth mother who trolls Whole Foods for overpriced organics, this 189-room hotel strikes an odd balance between simple elegance and conspicuous glitziness.
Book one of these charming bungalows with kitchenettes and fireplaces; the largest cottage has a hammock and its own Jacuzzi.
Seattleites seeking urban respite head eight miles west and across Lake Washington to Bellevue. Despite the hotel’s easy access to I-405, it’s hidden away on a quiet side street in a residential neighborhood.
