Downtown lodging with its own curated in-house "art walk."
This luxury boutique hotel isn't just near many of Seattle's major attractions --- it's also one of them. Most Kimpton Group properties have a theme, and art is the focus here, with a quarterly-changing exhibition of local artists curated by a member of the Seattle Art Museum (just two blocks away). The 109 accommodations include specialty suites, from the spacious Fireplace Suite to the lavish Spa Suite. As for standard amenities, they are generous: complimentary Internet (just join Kimpton's free membership club), 32-inch flat-screen TVs, Frette linens, honor bars with organic goodies, a yoga channel and accessories for guest use and work desks with ergonomic chairs. The Bookstore Bar offers food pairings, a thoughtful selection of whiskeys and, true to the bar's name, books. As at every Kimpton hotel, there is a hosted wine hour each evening.
