Conde Nast Traveler: 15 Best Hotels in Seattle

Where to cozy up in the Pacific Northwest.

In 1964, the Beatles famously fished out a window at Seattle’s Edgewater Hotel. A few miles away, Gertrude Stein companion Alice B. Toklas—once a music student here—haunts the halls of the historic Sorrento. The history and lore of some of Seattle’s best hotels are intriguing enough to fill a tome. But of-the-moment stays have popped up as well with design that have you snapping photos and amenities that will keep you coming back. So whether you opt for something chic and view-boasting, get cozy among exquisite antiques, or just shack up inside the world-famous Pike Place Market, you’re bound to leave Seattle with a story to tell.

HOTEL

Loews Hotel 1000

$$$

With spectacular waterfront views, an onsite spa, and—thanks to a comprehensive renovation in 2017—drop-dead gorgeous decor, this hotel is one of Seattle’s very best. But it still caters to families (and even dogs). A gray and green color scheme, with pops of dusty pink, lets Elliott Bay take center stage. And floor to ceiling windows in the rooms ensure you’ll get a great view of the water and the Olympic Mountains beyond.
