Seattle meets chic at Hotel 1000, the city’s first mixed-use hotel/condo development with urban residences on the upper floors. Built in 2006, this stately 24-story skyscraper has quickly earned a stellar reputation as one of Seattle’s top luxury hotels, garnering awards and accolades from critics and guests alike.
As an added bonus, Hotel 1000 follows a green philosophy, utilizing energy saving technologies, recycling, and environmentally friendly products while encouraging education and awareness.
Recommended Resort: Hotel 1000. There are 120 guest rooms on the property, only 19 devoted to suites. Of course the higher the floor the better the view, but you really can’t go wrong with so many deluxe amenities from lobby up.
The rooms are showered with love, from Thai linens to terry cloth robes and more high-tech features than you can shake an iPhone at. But the real treat comes in the bathroom, with Molton Brown products and a gorgeous bathtub with a faucet that releases water from the ceiling.
Check In: 1000 First Avenue in Seattle. 206-957-1000, hotel1000seattle.com
Check Out: Studio 1000 and Boka Kitchen + Bar. Overlooking the urban street corner outside the lobby, Studio 1000 is the perfect sanctuary for an afternoon coffee or pre-dinner drink.
Decorated in onyx, leather and deep woods, the space creates a dramatic effect, warmed by an open steel and concrete fire pit. Boka is the place to satisfy cravings, with a delicious menu of urban American fare that recently earned them Best Hotel Brunch/Breakfast in Seattle Magazine.
Don’t Miss: SPAAH. Definitely the piece de resistance at Hotel 1000, this refreshing refuge draws locals as well as guests to its peaceful quarters. As the clever name implies, this place is all about release, with individual services like massage, body treatments and skin care, to amazing packages.
The Complete Indulgence features a 90-minute facial, facial of your choosing, spa lunch, uptown manicure and downtown pedicure. You’ll leave feeling like a million bucks. Sign me up!
