Seattle is the city that unleashed Starbucks onto the world, yet still keeps hundreds of local cafes in business year after year - this place is nothing if not hip. And if hip and trendy are your two adjectives of choice for a prime hotel, Seattle has you covered.
Kimpton hotels are always an excellent choice for the tragically or not-so-tragically hip. Like the Hotel Monaco, with its theme of "playful escape," or Hotel Vintage Park, which names each guestroom after a local vineyard and plies its fortunate guests with Washington wine tastings. The Alexis Hotel is dedicated to the "art of living," radiating class right down to the cozy Library Bistro
on the first floor.
The Hotel Ändra's decor is a celebration of the strong elements of the Northwest - water, woods and stone - and also features a Scandinavian design influence. Over in the University District, Hotel Deca is contemporary from its art-deco motif to the ballroom with hand-blown glass chandeliers. Hotel Max has been said to be the Seattle Art Museum
's only real rival due to the over 350 paintings and photographs by local artists adorning the lobby and rooms.
The W set the standard for hip hotels in Seattle, and for trendy eats, the on-site Earth & Ocean
restaurant is a must-try. The Maxwell Hotel was named one of the top 10 trendiest hotels in the U.S. by TripAdvisor, and is conveniently located near the Seattle Center. For a hotel as high-tech and wired as you are, check out the Hotel 1000. And if you're looking for hip on a budget, the Ace Hotel has a room for you.
