The city's best health club (with yoga classes, squash courts, and state-of-the-art equipment) and a prime Inner Harbour location appeal to savvy regulars, including Seattleites stepping off the ferry across the street. Feng shui design elements apply throughout, lending a calm energy to the gleaming marble lobby. Rooms are large and surprisingly quiet, with deep soaker tubs, floor-to-ceiling windows, and traditional furnishings. Upper-floor rooms have views of the harbor,
the Parliament Buildings, or the mountains, which you can admire from your private balcony, big enough to sit out on. The Pacific Restaurant serves an interesting contemporary dim sum lunch on weekends.
