Four Seasons Hotel Seattle Review: Overlooking Elliott Bay and Puget Sound, this Four Seasons features 147 rooms (including thirteen suites), with ten of its 21 floors dedicated to private residences. Even the smallest of these sophisticated guest rooms boasts more space that the average Seattle hotel room, and all have double-pane windows to ensure a peaceful stay --- much welcome, since the hotel is within blocks of the Seattle Steam Co. Additional amenities include down duvets, plasma-screen TVs and docking stations for iPods and MP3 players. The lobby is warm and contemporary, furnished with earth tones and bursts of accent color. Throughout the property, local artists are showcased; reproduced works from the Seattle Art Museum (across the street) are also on display. The full-service spa offers treatments inspired by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. On-site ART Restaurant and Lounge (closed for renovation until late spring 2015) features a 300-year-old cedar tree trunk for its maître d’ desk and serves market-fresh regional cuisine. For meetings and events, more than 10,000 square feet of space includes a ballroom with a northwest-inspired scene that incorporates evergreens, ferns and fog machines.
