Located in downtown Seattle just a few blocks from Pike Place Market, Hotel Andra features warm, inviting modern Scandinavian decor. The lobby doubles as a stylish living room, with a wall of bookcases, Arne Jacobsen swan chairs, hand-knotted rugs and a split grain granite fireplace surrounded by perfectly stacked firewood. Through a large boathouse door made of maple, black steel and frosted glass is the hotel’s Greek-inspired restaurant, Lola, which is run by local celebrity chef Tom Douglas and serves tasty dishes such as slow-roasted suckling pig with orzo and grape leaf–wrapped trout. Upstairs, the airy guestrooms have a muted color scheme, with pops of brunt orange, slate blue and olive green, as well as such amenities as large flat-screen TVs, Face Stockholm bath products, Tivoli clock radios and fluffy bathrobes.
In the Area
Hotel Andra’s downtown location is a short walk from Pike Place Market, a century-old bastion where you can browse farm stands, nibble samples from artisanal food shops, watch fish arrive fresh off the boat and visit the original Starbucks. The Seattle Art Museum is also just blocks away, as is near the monorail, which can take you to the Space Needle or the EMP Museum, a temple to music and pop culture designed by Frank Gehry. Shoppers can take the short stroll to the flagship Nordstrom or upscale malls like Westlake Center, but we recommend a longer walk (or short cab ride) to the Pike-Pine Corridor, a vibrant neighborhood that birthed the grunge scene and now boasts indie boutiques and galleries, hip bars and eateries, and local legends like Elliott Bay Book Company.
How to Get There
Probably the nicest staff of anywhere I've ever stayed. Down to earth, helpful - they set a tone from the start that this would be a special but comfortable stay for myself and my son. Perfect location with world class restaurants right next door and serving as room service, close to shopping and Pike Place and the monorail, and shockingly quiet for such a central location. We were on the 5th floor on a Friday night and didn't hear one bit of noise. Highly recommend, and Hotel Andra is now my go-to for any trip to Seattle.
Hotel Andra is my new favorite hotel in Seattle. I arrived at the hotel to complimentary gifts and great front desk service. Everything from the room to the donuts and complimentary breakfast was impeccable.
The best part of the hotel is their staff and the location.
Staff are always friendly and helpful.
Location is close proximity to shopping, Pike's place and lots of great restaurants.
The only con was probably that the hotel might be a bit bit dated. The door handle for the wardrobe and bathroom kept dropping. hahaha
