Scandinavian sensibility and clean, modern lines define this sophisticated hotel on the edge of Belltown, where rooms have dark fabrics and woods, with a few bright accents and geometric prints. The lobby is fantastic, with armchairs and couches arranged in front of a fireplace that's flanked by floor-to-ceiling bookcases. The hotel is also smack in the middle of restaurateur Tom Douglas's many haunts (including on-site Lola, a delicious Mediterranean spot)—be sure to
hit Serious Pie's happy hour for cheap gourmet pizza or Dahlia Lounge across the street for crab cakes and coconut cream pie.

My room turned out to be a comfortable suite, laid out in such a way as to feel both cozy and functional. All hotel staff were welcoming and friendly. Chances are that the view from your room won't be great even though a few rooms have a nice view of the Space Needle. Room service works well and - a rare exception to the rule - provides some light options other than Caesar's salad. The restaurant is a joy in quality and freshness of ingredients at
very reasonable prices. Location is great for financial district, sightseeing, and shopping.
