Channeling a high-end lake house, this Lincoln Square hotel is as rugged as it is indulgent
The W brand’s first foray into Seattle is a trendy, reinterpreted version of the city’s cozy lakeside abodes. That luxe-lodge aesthetic is especially palpable on the hotel’s fashionable porch (a covered outdoor lounge with a crackling fireplace) and the log cabin-accented take on a traditional lobby—all A-frame beams and wool plaid throws. Industrial-modern rooms nod to the city’s nautical past: tufted headboards take cues from inflatable floats while side-table lighting resembles dock lamps. If the Seattle rain dampens your evening plans, don’t fret. You don’t have step out of this hip haunt to have a memorable night. Start with a farm- and sea-centric dinner (locally-caught halibut; Dungeness crab) at the airy Lakehouse steered by James Beard Award-winner Jason Wilson, then make your way downstairs to the very sultry lounge, Civility and Unrest (its “secret” entrance is strategically covered by a mural), for a taste of seasonally-inspired cocktails, rare scotches, and vintage whiskeys.
In the Area
The arts and technology spheres come together seamlessly in Seattle. Witness that fusion in action at the Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery, just a short walk from the hotel, or at the Microsoft Visitor Center, home to interactive gadgets and a jewel-box of a museum dedicated to computing history. You can also get a glimpse of the locality’s hallowed ’90s grunge scene at the Puget Sounds Record Store, tucked inside a tattoo parlor. These days, the Pacific Northwest is more famous for its burgeoning wineries—we recommend Guardian Cellars, a joint venture between a local cop and reporter in nearby Woodville.
How to Get There
love the rooms as they have a great design with an awesome shower. The staff is really attentive and the hotel is in a great location with a nice park across the street and many restaurants to choose from. Take advantage of W Whatever Whenever service
Stayed at the W Bellevue for a nice fun stay in Bellevue. Great staycation with your partner! We got a cozy room and had a view of the water. The shower being so clear walled in the middle of the room was a bit odd, but definitely different. Since the hotel is located in South Lincoln Tower we were right next to great food vendors and the convenience of the mall being just across the street. We stayed here for my birthday and got dinner at Ascend. It was honestly great because from the hotel lobby you just walk across to the other side of the floor and take another elevator up and BAM, in the restaurant. Hotel was lively for a Thursday night. Once we got done with dinner we checked out the "Living Room" (lobby area) of the hotel and there was a DJ. The bed was very comfy and the robes & amenities in the room were great. We decided to order breakfast in and got a breakfast burrito which definitely was not worth it at all, it was such a small portion and just tasted like something you can make at home. The gym however was great! The equipment looked new and the gym had so much space. Plus the bottled water and towels that were provided were awesome. I'd definitely stay here again for another staycation. Would probably have to venture out for better breakfast though.
First time trying this hotel, the moment I stepped in, this hotel gave me a very vibrant kind of feel, with swings and many relax corner on the ground floor. It was a pretty long walk to reach my room as I have got the corner room. However the big cosy and colourful room lights me up from the long and tiring flight. I have to say the corner room is slightly noisy and i think the room-keeping room is right opposite me. Lacked a feel of security and I am a solo traveller for work, i feel that there is a gap between the blind and the window and yet the bathroom is in full glass, but yet again I am too tired to request for a change but definitely will be something to take note in future. Over the staffs are friendly and helpful and I will definitely be back!
