Two buildings on opposite sides of the street—one historic, the other a 21-floor modern tower—make up Washington state's fourth largest hotel and one of its best, with elegant accommodations and a plethora of amenities. Rooms in the main hotel have hand-carved mahogany furniture and fine Irish linens, and though the sleeping areas are not huge, the marble bathrooms, with big soaking tubs and separate showers, are spacious and inviting. The contemporary-style rooms
in the Tower building have marble showers and vanities, but no bathtubs. Each building has a restaurant; the lively Safari Room Grill and Bar in the Tower is popular for its low prices, including lunch specials, on such items as woodfired flatbread. The quieter Palm Court Grill in the historic hotel is acclaimed for its champagne Sunday brunch, prime rib, and crab Louis salad. The hotel's lobby level has an espresso bar, candy and flower shops, and an art gallery. There's also a spa and salon, 24-hour fitness center, and pool in the main hotel.
