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
We have stayed at the Hotel Andra twice! It is by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. All staff members are warm, friendly, helpful and respectful. We had such a wonderful experience. The rooms are classy,comfortable, clean and well thought out. (lights, switches, plug ins, mirrors in all the right places, even a walk in closet. Hotel bar and restaurant, Lola's was amazing!
Whoever hires and trains the staff should be commended!
This Hotel was amazing to stay at. Everyone was very friendly from the valet, front desk staff, to the housekeepers. Wow! Very impressed with the room and cleanliness. Everything is 5 star here. Location is close to Pike place. Easy walk.
It was a pleasure staying at this hotel with its nice and cozy lobby adjacent to a very busy restaurant, that serves good food.
The rooms are big and spacious and tastefully decorated in a Scandinavian inspired ambience with great beds and a nice bathroom. Very clean. An extra treat was The New York Times delivered to your door every morning.
Also, the entire staff from valet, to doormen to reception were extremely serviceminded and helpful.
