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.

Good restaurant..excellent,service, friendly efficient.
Wow, I was so impressed by Loews customer service! James at check-in was wonderful--so professional and kind. My sister and I were offered champagne immediately upon checking in and when we entered our room, we received text messages verifying if everything was to our satisfaction. The bathtub was such a treat! I felt so pampered during my weekend getaway. I would love to stay again and will be recommending Loews to any friends who want to stay in Seattle!
I've read some reviews and I think you get what you pay for at this hotel. We had a corner suite with water views and it was fabulous; we liked the room and hallway décor and everything about it was generous and comfortable, except that I agree they should put a bar of soap in the room (but when we asked for one a person came up within 2 minutes).The hotel feels small even if it is not and you feel looked after here by the valets in front. The front desk and concierge staff were nice and helpful as can be, and we enjoyed the hotel restaurant for dinner and breakfast -- we thought the food was creative and tasty. The gym downstairs was less than I hoped for but it was adequate and easy to get to. All told you would probably get the best views and location at the Four Seasons which is waterfront and right by Pike's Place Market but this hotel offers better value for money and the location was fine just a half dozen blocks away down 1st Avenue. We found nice things to buy at the Watson Kennedy store on the corner (which we otherwise wouldn't have found) so that alone made it worthwhile to be there. For a good laugh look at the room service menu in the room. You can get a meal for a cat or a dog and it costs around $25-30 plus tax, tip and service charge. The most expensive thing on the kiddie menu is the $11 burger so I guess it indicates that people value pets more than kids! Of course, whether or not anyone actually buys their pets room service is another matter.
First, never be fooled by their photos. When I book, I always request high floor with a nice view. Most of the time, the hotels will accommodate the best they can. Not with Loews, no effort was ever made! See attached photos of our window view for a $320/night. When we complained, they're only willing to accommodate if we pay an additional $50 per night.
In addition to a disappointing window view, we were also hearing a surround sound of banging doors. And our room was right by the housekeeping room which was an eyesore.
The hotel receptionists were not very friendly and accommodating. Overall, we were very disappointed with our stay here.
Seattle is a wonderful place to visit .. but don't spoil it by staying in this hotel.
I booked directly through Loews in February for our June trip. We decided to add a night on the front of our trip. It was not in our budget to stay at Loews for the added night. Therefore, our first night was spent at a less expensive hotel in the same area. We arrived at Loews before noon, and we're pleased that our luggage could be stored while we did some sightseeing. Location of hotel is in walking distance to many attractions such as Pike Place Market, Seattle Great Wheel, Pioneer Square, The Space Needle, and a variety of restaurants. I received a text message later that day that our room was ready. We returned to hotel but we're quite disappointed as the only view outside our window was a vacant, messy building that we could see right into. I immediately called the front desk to request a different room. I was told that all rooms with 2 doubles faced this building.. I was offered a room with one king bed. I declined as that would not be practical for our party. I loved our sightseeing of Seattle. However, returning to a room with such a horrible view was quite disappointing especially given the extremely high price we paid for the room. The second day of our stay I spoke with the front desk again and we were moved up 2 floors. It was inconvenient switching rooms on the second day however the view was improved as we were no longer looking directly into the building but instead above it. Pros-The doormen and housekeepers were very professional and pleasant. Location-We walked to Pikes Place, the Space Needle, Pioneer Square, and a variety of great restaurants. There is a fitness center in the basement with treadmills, Ellipticals,, stationary bikes, and weights. Con - Fitness Center is smaller than less expensive hotels in the area. It also was overly warm with bad ventilation and no windows. Room service served late night ice cream with only forks - a small detail that was overlooked. Bar soap available only on request. Terrible view from our hotel room along with noise from family above us on the first night. In conclusion this hotel might be nice for a romantic weekend. For our planned trip Loews was to be a "step up" not a "step down". For our sightseeing excursion I definitely paid too much for our room. Overpriced - Better hotels in the area cost less.
