One of the best-looking hotels in Seattle is a chic treat for travelers, from the stylish and comfortable modern rooms to the impressive views of the Space Needle and Lake Union. Even standard rooms feel spacious and feature an elegant palette of browns and blues, along with contemporary furniture and artwork and upscale touches like Hypnos beds, Herman Miller desk chairs, and soaking tubs tucked behind shoji screens. Eco-minded travelers will appreciate that Pan Pacific has won national and global awards for its sustainability practices and has been recognized as one of the greenest companies in Washington. Part of a luxury condo development, the hotel offers guests access to a 24-hour fitness center with a large jetted whirlpool. Also across the courtyard, spa lovers should take note of the Vida Spa, a local favorite that features classic body and facial treatments along with specialty Ayurvedic options in a beautiful and soothing setting. The Pan Pacific’s small but terrific Lobby
Bar serves unique cocktails, and South Lake Union features a handful of solid walkable dining options as well. A vibrant and growing urban center, SLU is a short haul from the downtown sights; ask about the hotel’s free car service, which can drop you anywhere in a two-mile radius, or hop on a trolley to get around.
