An exclusive club with a hotel dedicated to sophisticated escapes.
This high-end hotel resides in a private club in Seattle's tony east side sister city, Bellevue. There are only 67 guest rooms, but the overall property is so large that it's easy to get lost on the way to your workout. With three pools, eleven tennis courts and fitness studios, this aspect of the property feels more like a big-city athletic club than a glorified hotel gym. The hotel attracts both corporate visitors and high-end leisure travelers. While membership has its privileges, being a guest here gets you far more. Not only do you have full access to the spa, gymnasium, fitness classes, trainers and four restaurants (including the private Polaris serving American cuisine), you have a spacious, elegant guest room in which to retreat. Beds are draped in 500-thread-count sheets, and bathrooms include extra-deep tubs. A boardroom and ballroom are among the spaces on offer for business events.
