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
This is an excellent hotel! Near upscale shopping center. Easy to roam Seattle by foot or uber. The amenities, service, and food in The Bar are all tops! We had a wonderful room with a view of the Space needle and much of downtown Seattle. We would stay at other properties as we travel.
From start to finish, the staff was caring and gave me an experience that was so indulgent and relaxing, I slept like a baby.
I ordered room service for dinner and the meal was delicious. Delivered to my room promptly and with a friendly smile.
Recently stayed for a mother daughter getaway. Our 1st time staying at this hotel, and we were not disappointed! I would highly recommend this as a great location, friendly staff and the added bonus of the complimentary car service was AWESOME. No need to rent a car, they were able to efficiently bring us to the major attractions in the area with no hassle of parking or trying to navigate an unfamiliar city.
Room was clean, spacious and had the perfect view of the space Needle. The beds were comfortable with luxurious down comforters, complimentary bath robe and slippers for use during your stay, and loved the chocolate turn down service!
Great large bathtub, perfect for soaking after a long day of sightseeing, and then in the morning a beautiful glass shower, that provided views of the City!
A very good location, and excellent service.
The staff are very nice and helpful even with extra help required.
The food and room are wonderful.
The overall environment is great.
Thanks for taking care of me.
I might sound dramatic but I honestly loved & enjoyed my stay here at the Pan Pacific hotel ❤️ The staff was very welcoming from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. The bedsheets were freshly cleaned, mattress was comfortable, & let alone our view of the city & space needle was beyond breath taking ❤️ Since my husband & I were celebrating our 7yr anniversary we made sure to call in before booking & arriving a lil before check in to make sure we got the perfect room & sure enough we did at no extra charge ☺️ Thanks Pan Pacific for this wonderful experience! -all the way from CA
