It only takes one glimpse of the gorgeous modern-global lobby to know that this stylish boutique hotel in the heart of Downtown is a standout, and rooms carry on the image, with a palette of soft reds and gunmetal grays, beds topped with Frette linens, floor-to-ceiling drapes in a Turkish motif, and floor lamps that recall telescopes. Designed by Andrea Dawson (of the Drake Hotel in San Francisco and the Alexis Hotel in Seattle), the pleasantly bustling public spaces are
outfitted with midcentury-inspired sofas, Regency-style table lamps, artwork by local Seattle artists, and a mosaic-tiled fireplace. A nightly wine reception is good for meeting other guests and bike use is complimentary. Monaco's Southern-inflected Sazerac restaurant pours an excellent version of its namesake cocktail.
