Hotel 1000 combines the modern luxuries of a city hotel with the personable service of a boutique property. Accented by hues reflecting the outdoor landscape, the 120 rooms walk the line between digital and analog. An electronic doorbell silently scans the room with infrared sensors to detect body heat — this ensures that hotel staff will never disrupt you to service your room. Other technological conveniences include an electronic do-not-disturb button, a media hub to charge multiple devices and an intelligent minibar that informs staff when it’s time to replenish. In contrast, minimalist clocks — sitting beside cushy beds draped in 400-thread-count, long loop Thai cotton sheets — and French press coffee pots prove that sometimes, simple is supreme. Bathrooms feature floor-to-ceiling views of the city, separate bath and shower, and Molton Brown products. Happy hour offers samples of crispy kale, tuna poke and truffle fries paired with a lesson in mixology at BOKA Kitchen & Bar, where bartenders serve liquor infused with lemon peels, fresh thyme and blueberries. Indulge in a signature facial or massage treatment at the intimate spa.
In the Area
Outside the hotel walls, there’s the Emerald City to explore, where you’ll find much more than Seattle’s stereotypical polar fleece-loving kayakers, grunge musicians and tech-magnet-philanthropists. Stroll by the houseboats on Lake Union, drive to the Woodinville wine region, see the Olympic Sculpture Park, or take in the Rem Koolhaas-designed public library. Visit Pike Place Market, a feast for the eyes and the stomach. Arrive early to avoid the crowds of tourists and locals, who simply call it “the Market”. Grab some java at the original Starbucks, and then peruse the endless stalls of flowers and handmade goods for sale by local farmers and craftspeople. Don’t miss the world-famous fish throwers. The downtown Nordstrom flagship, a Seattle institution, is a must-visit—for the shoe department alone. Evoking a traditional Italian salumeria with modern-day curing techniques, Salumi serves up authentic Mediterranean food in the heart of Seattle’s Pioneer Square district. Standout cooking skills must run in the family, as co-founder and principal salumist, Armandino Batali, is the father of celebrity chef Mario Batali. Dine at Sitka & Spruce, one of Seattle’s most hotly reviewed restaurants in the hip Capitol Hill district. Anchoring an artisanal market that houses a flower shop, butcher, cheese shop and cocktail bar, Sitka & Spruce’s always-changing menu is high on taste and sustainability with a locavore focus.
How to Get There
My wife and I stayed at this hotel to celebrate our three year wedding anniversary. The staff was extremely courteous and kind, and the room itself exceeded our expectations. We had stayed here once before the renovation, and I must say, that the hotel looks absolutely beautiful now. The bathrooms are particularly wonderful with the ceiling filling tubs and giant Windows overlooking the city. The location of this hotel can't be beat, only a couple blocks off the water and within walking distance of all the great downtown attractions. Just watch out for that hill on Madison, it's a steep one!
I had requested roses and wine of some kind to be in the room as a surprise for my wife for our anniversary. The hotel went above and beyond leaving a beautiful bouquet of roses, some chocolates, a bottle of nice champagne, and a card from the staff. the concierge and manager had signed the card themselves and included several seed packets to grow wildflowers! It made my wife feel very special so I must say, thank you very much! then when we went to leave the staff was kind enough to wrap the flowers up for us and have them waiting so that we could take them home. Overall wonderful time, thank you so much for the great experience.
The room is cozy and I LOVED the large bathroom even though the bathtub was cracked and it took too much time to have hot water. I had to replace the water once filled because it was cold and the best I could have was warm water.
Only few basic amenity, no complimentary water, tea nor coffee.
Besides to the room interior, everything else is just or less than average, nothing special and I didn't feel luxury in my stay.
The location and room view was good, but the front desk is dry, the porter don't care about you, no welcome drinks. There were some water at the lobby but always without any glasses.
The reception service was far from five stars. I asked for a receipt which I recieved in blank, so I had to return to the hotel after check out because I thought it was a miss print. I was explained that it was in blank because I won't pay anything to the hotel as I already payed the fee to the reservation site and I had to print out the receipt from its website. First of all, who needs a receipt in blank?
Second, few weeks later I found I was changed a fee on my credit card that I had no idea what was for. I called the hotel for explanation and the reception guy transferred my call to an automatic reply that only says it is out of business hours.
I had to call again and finally I got the explanation that it was a leasure fee, but they were not able to explain what that fee is for, just "you have to pay".
I don't care to pay if I have explanation of what I am paying for at the payment timing and if I have a recipt for what I paid. They said it is my fault because it is written in their website. It doesn't make sence because it means that if they just put in their website they can charge you everything without your consent, without explanations and without receipt. Will I stay there again? Never.
In my over 40 years of business travel I suppose I have been fortunate in never having been bumped at a hotel for which not only I held a confirmed reservation, but paid in advance in full. This is a disgrace. Although the hotel re-accommodated me at another establishment that was 10 blocks away, I asked if there was a way that I could prevent being bumped next time, as if there would be a next time, because I will never stay in this establishment again. The on-duty manager stated that the only way to prevent being bumped at this hotel was to book a reservation directly. Ha! Will my company ever again have a Christmas party at Hotel1000 as we did two years ago? Not in this life.
Stayed one night here and did not want to leave. Beautifully done room with more than anyone would ever need. The staff was friendly, courteous, and prompt. If there was a negative it would be sleeping late may not be an option, there is much construction in adjacent buildings.
Everything was good for our family vacation!!
Location was awesome and we really enjoyed thier dinning.
Room was exceptionally clean.
I do recommend to people who has plans for trip to Seattle. It was great.
