We've stayed in Seattle many times over the years and we've come to find a few favorites of ours in terms of hotels in downtown Seattle. We stayed at this hotel years ago and found it a little dark and dreary to say the least. When this trip came around and I had points that could only be used here, so we figured we'd give it another try and we were so glad we did. I think this will become our new favorite in the city after a beautiful renovation has totally transformed this hotel!
When we stayed: April 2014 | Price Range: $200/night (average for standard room)

As I mentioned above, this hotel has recently undergone a major renovation which has totally transformed a once dark and dreary hotel to a gorgeous modern masterpiece. I loved everything about it and will definitely be back the next time we're in Seattle.
Check in - Check in was easy. We valeted our car (one thing I love about the hotel is that they have a driveway to actually pull in to valet, not just on the side of the street like most Seattle hotels), and wandered into the lobby to a quick and easy check in, then on to our room.
Room - Our room was gorgeous with a beautiful view of the Seattle Public Library (a lovely modern building by Koolhaus) and was very big. We remarked how the rooms used to be tiny in this hotel and our room had more than enough space to be comfortable.
Bathroom - The bathroom was a good size and plenty of counterspace.
Design - I adore the new design of this hotel. Featuring purples and moroccan prints, the design is fresh and modern with that touch of "design" I love. It was a much better use of bringing out "wine colors" than previously when it was red on overload. The patterns were my favorite from patterns in the carpeting in the hallways to gorgeous wood carved bed frames, it was lovely.

Overall Impressions - I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and will most definitely be back again when we make it up to Seattle next.
