Pike Place Hotels
107 Pine St., Pike Place
Whether for last-minute work trips or spontaneous jaunts to cities along the West Coast, Palihotel is one of the most beautifully-decorated, luxurious, efficient, responsive, and personal hotel groups we’ve ever experienced. They’re in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and now, Seattle, and we’re crazy about their exceptional service, chicly cushy design (think Wes Anderson with exquisite linens) and sheer coziness. And considering the level of deluxeness, it’s remarkably affordable. The Seattle iteration is right near Pike Place, the fish market, and the Seattle Art Museum. After a day of meetings or sightseeing (or both), a glass of wine and cheese board in the bar is the perfect wind-down. Guestrooms make clever use of space and are full of thoughtful touches like fresh flowers, mini Smeg fridges, pretty antique tea kettles, and a desk you’ll actually want to work from.
