- Room Service
In a city with a few showy Old World grande dames and several more whimsically designed boutique hotels, the Four Seasons stands out for its dialed-back, discreetly posh vibe. The porte-cochère is on a short cul-de-sac, providing guests a safe harbor from busy adjoining streets the minute they pull up to the front door of this 21-story tower built in 2008. Low-slung, contemporary sofas and armchairs fill a refreshingly unfussy lobby of mostly muted grays and tans, accented by a few abstract paintings, a couple of colorfully striped accent rugs and a sleek, rectilinear fireplace. The building’s top floors contain 36 high-end private residences, but even the hotel guest rooms feel like peaceful, sophisticated pieds-à-terre.
Bed and Bath
With angular light-wood furniture, a few tastefully selected Northwest artworks (reproductions from the Seattle Art Museum) and little clutter or excessive adornment, the 147 airy rooms reflect Seattle’s unpretentious personality and strong Scandinavian roots. Rows of large windows let in plenty of light and afford views, depending on which side of the building guests are on, of Puget Sound and the snowcapped Olympic Mountains in the distance, or different perspectives on the city’s handsome skyline. Beds are swathed in soft linens. A big plus are the huge bathrooms, which come with double vanities and deep soaking tubs clad in gray-streaked white marble, showers with rain showerheads and separate commode rooms.
Grab a lavender-scented towel and munch on frozen grapes while resting beside at the small-but-sleek heated infinity lap pool, which is situated on a deck overlooking Elliott Bay (guests can order snacks from a special pool menu in summer). There’s also an outdoor hot tub and—popular during the cooler months—a fire pit. The hotel’s well-equipped 24-hour fitness is just inside from the pool, and a 6,000-square-foot spa has eight treatment rooms, including a couples’ suite overlooking the water. ART restaurant and lounge is a peaceful, contemporary space; the kitchen here turns out creative Northwest fare, including spice-rubbed King salmon with crab mashed potatoes, and Painted Hills beef tenderloin from Oregon.
In the Area
The hotel is perfectly situated for downtown exploring, just two blocks from legendary Pike Place Market and its stalls and vendors selling fresh produce, seafood and gourmet goodies, plus great restaurants like Marché and Matt’s in the Market. Across the street is the esteemed Seattle Art Museum, and—a block away—the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and a slew of big-name acts performing at elegant Benaroya Hall. Just down the hill on a pier in Puget Sound, the Seattle Aquarium delights kids and adults with close-up encounters of menacing-looking sharks and a Giant Pacific octopus. Downtown’s top shopping is a five-minute walk north at Pacific Place Mall, the Westlake Center and along the surrounding blocks of Pine and Pike streets.
How to Get There
The amenities, the staff and its location are what make this hotel such a pleasant experience. Comfortable bed and a great view from 301 made it near impossible to leave the room and explore the city. The Tesla courtesy service is a nice touch. Some of the clientele, however, can be a bit off-putting.
Outstanding service and staff-can't go wrong here. Too many wonderful amenities and terrific rooms and bed. This is a terrific place to stay in Seattle. Next time you visit Seattle, stay here! You will be treated to total luxury and style, and it is close to a myriad of activities.
