Eco-friendly digs with stellar Space Needle views, a decadent spa and a delish seafood restaurant
The 160-room Pan Pacific reflects the brand’s Asian aesthetic, adapted to Seattle. Making fabulous use of natural light in this notoriously overcast city, the hotel has floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase stellar views of Lake Union to the north and the Space Needle to the west. The lobby has a futuristic feel, with an elliptical staircase that appears to dangle from the ceiling without visible support. Clever backlighting fashions a “floating” fireplace, and pieces from Paul Allen’s personal art collection are on display, and Mod furnishings in coffee colors sit below a Calder-like blown-glass chandelier. Yet Michael Knutson’s 8x8-foot untitled lobby centerpiece explodes with color, proving that Pan Pacific Seattle is anything but neutral.
Bed & Bath
Hallways leading to guestrooms are lined with black-and-white 19th-century photographs depicting the neighborhood, providing a sense of history and perspective (the hotel is part of a mixed-use urban renewal project revitalizing the South Lake Union district). Once through the door, designers Hirsch Bedner opted for sleek minimalism, with burnished zebrawood furnishings and a palette of warm taupe and slate. All have premium Hypnos beds, Herman Miller desk chairs, iHome docking devices, satellite radio and free WiFi. Half the rooms offer unimpeded views of Lake Union and the iconic Space Needle; the rest gaze onto the tranquil landscaped courtyard.
Green practices and great grub distinguish the SeaStar Restaurant & Raw Bar. Chef/owner John Howie has prepared meals at NYC’s prestigious James Beard House, and he wrote the definitive cookbooks on cedar-plank grilling. He utilizes the freshest Northwest products, filtered through a global gastro-sensibility — cedar-grilled king crab legs are the signature specialty. Slurp down some oysters before heading down the hill or out around Lake Union for a night, and enjoy Seattle for all the reasons locals love it.
