The 160-room Pan Pacific reflects the brand’s Asian aesthetic, adapted to Seattle. Making fabulous use of natural light in this notoriously overcast city, the hotel has floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase stellar views of Lake Union to the north and the Space Needle to the west. The lobby has a futuristic feel, with an elliptical staircase that appears to dangle from the ceiling without visible support. Clever backlighting fashions a “floating” fireplace, and pieces from Paul Allen’s personal art collection are on display, and Mod furnishings in coffee colors sit below a Calder-like blown-glass chandelier. Yet Michael Knutson’s 8×8-foot untitled lobby centerpiece explodes with color, proving that Pan Pacific Seattle is anything but neutral.
Bed & Bath
Hallways leading to guestrooms are lined with black-and-white 19th-century photographs depicting the neighborhood, providing a sense of history and perspective (the hotel is part of a mixed-use urban renewal project revitalizing the South Lake Union district). Once through the door, designers Hirsch Bedner opted for sleek minimalism, with burnished zebrawood furnishings and a palette of warm taupe and slate. All have premium Hypnos beds, Herman Miller desk chairs, iHome docking devices, satellite radio and free WiFi. Half the rooms offer unimpeded views of Lake Union and the iconic Space Needle; the rest gaze onto the tranquil landscaped courtyard.
Green practices and great grub distinguish the SeaStar Restaurant & Raw Bar. Chef/owner John Howie has prepared meals at NYC’s prestigious James Beard House, and he wrote the definitive cookbooks on cedar-plank grilling. He utilizes the freshest Northwest products, filtered through a global gastro-sensibility — cedar-grilled king crab legs are the signature specialty. Slurp down some oysters before heading down the hill or out around Lake Union for a night, and enjoy Seattle for all the reasons locals love it.
How to Get There
Room was nice with a good view of the city. Super clean. Lots of amenities close by. Was really only here one night and it fit the bill. Used Uber a lot to get around. Was super hungry at night and the room service menu was minimal and the pizza I ordered was so so.
Great location in Lake Union area with a quiet entry plaza away from traffic. Nice modern décor with great rooms and bathroom. Good attentive service. Valet parking. Lobby bar and breakfast no dinning. Excellent hotel away from downtown hustle.
I had an amazing stay in the hotel. The rooms were very clean and even though i was beside the lift, it was still very quiet. (Room 602).The service was excellent overall and the staff were amazing with any request I had.. Very pleased with my stay overall. They provided me with the additional room heater upon request. I needed a screwdriver to fix a plug issue on my personal items and the reception team went above and beyond for me with this. The fuse blew in my room but maintenance were quick to resolve this issue. I was working nearby on 7th so this hotel was at an ideal location. I had dinner room service and b/fast in the restaurant and both services were satisfactory. Highly recommended!If I come back to Seattle I will most definitely stay here.
I had a very pleasant stay in the hotel. The rooms were clean and the service was excellent overall. Very pleased with my stay overall. They provided me with the additional room heater upon request. Every single employee are trained very well to take care of their guests. I'm coming back again in May. Highly recommended!
I would highly recomend this Hotel to anyone staying in the Seattle area! Great service from the time we arrived at the valet. The room's were great and everything was in walking distance or a very short Lyft ride.
