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.
How to Get There
We loved our stay at the Vintage. The hotel was two short blocks from the Link train we took from sea-tac airport to downtown. We were able to easily explore downtown Seattle on foot from the hotel. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The staff were helpful and kind. We enjoyed the flavored water in the lobby and wine happy hour in the evening.
Stayed here for 3 nights on a vacation.
1) Location as it relates to walking down to the shorefront. Ease to get on freeway to go places.
2) Restaurant Food is pretty good.
1) Front desk service not consistent
2) Noise if you are facing the street in a lower floor room.
3) Value....fairly expensive parking and overall.
Wonderful place to stay! The front desk staff went over and beyond to help my son and me check in early so we can attend a ceremony at the courthouse. They upgraded our rooms and sent up wine and cake for my birthday. Wow! Thank you for giving us a great weekend!
