Cozy boutique hotel with top notch service overlooking the Seattle Public Library

The Look

The name Vintage nods to both the hotel’s historic appeal and to its design inspiration, wine. Fresh off a 2014 renovation, the hotel is awash in the colors of Washington’s wine country (burgundy, taupe and green). Its slick furnishings and rich hues lend a sophisticated sexy vibe.

Bed and Bath

Guestrooms are all lush and cozy, with hardwood beds, cushy velvet armchairs and bold printed carpets. The furniture is situated to showcase the rooms’ grand feature: enormous windows that open to let in the fresh Seattle air. Be sure to request a room facing the park and library. The bathrooms in the standard rooms are snug, so it’s worth the splurge to upgrade to a spacious suite.


Tulio, a longtime Seattle favorite, adjoins the hotel and acts as both on-site restaurant and room-service provider — for fresh pasta in an unpretentious setting, it’s a great bet. Business guests may wish to host clients at the nearby private Columbia Tower Club, which offers spectacular city views. And while there’s no spa on-site, a host of in-room services are available. Best of all, the hotel staff has the city dialed-in and they’re ready to guide your experience. There’s even an on-site Zipcar location, so you can make seamless getaways.

In the Area

It’s impossible to escape Seattle without a bit of a culture crush. Step out of the hotel and head straight to the Seattle Public Library for a self-guided architecture tour of the award-winning leader in sustainable design. Take a 15-minute stroll to Melrose Market for a quick taste of some of the city’s finest food shops and restaurants, including chef Matt Dillon’s gorgeous, award-winning Sitka & Spruce. Book tickets at one of the city’s celebrated performance venues: Benaroya Hall, the Moore Theater or the Showbox. Swing by the Olympic Sculpture Park for a stunning exhibition of the famed local glassblower’s work at Chihuly Garden and Glass. Grab a Top Pot Doughnut on the way out of town.

Vintage = run down and they charge $21.39 for "internet" regardless of if you used it
Reviewed 1 week ago

The hotel scams you and charge a $21.39 fee for I termer and some other service you don't use. You don't have a choice, it's added to you bill so it ends up pretty expensive. The hotel itself is old and run down. The rooms are small and dark, and don't have any furniture except for a desk and a desk chair + bed. Even the shampoo/conditioner bottles are scruffed and peeling indicating how infrequent they change out the bottles. There are so many better hotels to stay at, for a cheaper price so stay away

Absolutely terrific

My friend and I took a quick girls' trip to Seattle, and we stayed at this lovely hotel. The cleanliness, the room, the decor, the quality, the restaurant, wine happy hour... EVERYTHING about our stay was amazing! And the STAFF... they really made our experience superb! Thank you!

Great Comfortable Bed
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My wife and I stayed at the Kimpton Hotel Vintage Seattle for three nights during the last week of March while visiting relatives. Very rarely have I found beds to be comfortable at other hotels but not at this hotel. The king-size bed we had was really comfy (better than at home!) and our 9th floor room facing Spring Street was very quiet although it was near the elevators. I also found pillows of varying firmness on the bed which was great because I found one that suited me perfectly. The hotel staff was very welcoming and the front desk staff even greeted me by my name one morning which was a surprise. You should definitely try out this hotel.

Far Better than Los Angeles

After a bad experience at the Wilshire Kimpton, very skeptical about going to Seattle! Pleasantly surprised how different these two properties are. The rooms are nice as are the bathrooms.
The front desk employees were warm and inviting.
