Take just one more step toward Puget Sound and you’ll be all wet — maybe that’s why there are so many fireplaces at The Edgewater Hotel. The first is under a freestanding stone chimney outside, while two gas fires flank the lobby interior. Antler chandeliers, mounted fish sculptures, tree stump coffee tables and rustic wood beam ceilings lend a warm cabin-chic vibe to the common areas. And all the Northwest coziness balances the views of inky Elliott Bay through large picture windows.
Bed and Bath
The hotel’s Northwest decor reminds guests exactly where they are. Tree branches are mounted on the walls to resemble antlers, and monochrome linens adorn beds. Renovated bathrooms with clawfoot tubs, slate floors and onyx vanities add a decidedly modern touch. Only the Beatles suite breaks rank, commemorating the Fab Four’s stay in 1964, when they playfully tried to fish out the window of their room.
In-house eatery Six Seven gets creative with its seafood, pairing poached shrimp with sweet potato hash, and mussels with smoked bacon. Happy hour small plates and rock ’n’ roll–inspired cocktails (such as the vodka-based Back in the USSR) will chase away the Seattle chill. A lobby shop is stuffed with eco-friendly baubles, including the hotel’s line of rubber duckies. That whimsical attitude is infectious — even to the elevators, whose cars are decked out in an under-the-sea LED display.
In the Area
Outside the hotel doors is a working waterfront with more docks than restaurants. A short hike uphill to Belltown earns travelers a selection of boutique cocktail bars and small plate bistros. Stop in at Black Bottle for gastropub-inspired tapas and flatbreads; angle for a seat on the popular patio if the day is sunny. Nearby, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen created an avant-garde temple to music and science fiction at the Experience Music Project. And, of course, Pike Place Market, the fish-throwing mecca of crafts, fresh veggies and local flowers, demands a visit, no matter the weather.
How to Get There
I feel that a the “resort fee” of $25 per night per room is ridiculous. The lobby area is very nice. The people who work there were polite and helpful. The restaurant is pricey (as I would expect it to be in a waterfront hotel in Seattle); but the food was good (breakfast). We stayed there for one reason only - we were tired and wanted to be as close to the Port of Seattle as possible.
The Edgewater is located perfectly for your stay in Seattle; walkable to all the site. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The view from the bar and restaurants entices you to stay and dine to take in the view and relax.
Stunning ocean views while we sip our wine by the fireplace in the room. Clean, beautiful bathroom and bedding. Great location to the market and other famous spots, yet arranged in a quiet location that has a relaxing resort style feel.
