The W Seattle is like an aging hipster—it once set the bar for Seattle's trendy hotels, and, although its cool has been eclipsed by newer properties like Hotel 1000, it still thinks it can reel in the stylish with minimal effort. That said, it's still fun if you can get a good deal. Deep couches and custom-designed chess tables encourage lingering around the fireplace in the lobby, and the hotel bar—popular with guests and locals—has DJs, a sushi bar, and two nightly
happy hours. Guest room decor is a bit on the austere side, with geometric prints to lighten things up.
