Seattle is a city replete with fantastic hotels. So how do you make an impression? Perhaps the same way a great wine leaves an impression- terroir. Out Seattle everyone else, and make guests feel welcome in a way that could only be indicative of Seattle. Despite a rather lengthy delay at check in, we enjoyed a fantastic stay at the Kimpton Palladian

Despite an early check in request, our room was not available upon arrival. No big deal. Due to communication errors on the part of a junior check in agent however, we weren’t told that our room was ready until an hour after standard check in. What matters here is that the senior check in agent apologized, sent chocolates, nuts and a lovely card to the room and instantly wanted to make things right. Though no welcome drinks during the wait were offered, the bar (pictured above) was a welcome place to work while waiting. Upon entering the room it was entirely evident that the Bill Gates and Jimmy Hendrix paintings found in the lobby were no one off. Each room offers pillows with amusing celebrity “portraits” which gave an instantly fun and quirky feel. Unless you happened to date one of these people at some point, but anyway. The room offered unique fixtures, local guide books and a very boutique feel, in line with the heart of Kimpton style. Pillows and books are nice- but hotel rooms are about creature comforts. The room was very well laid out, and even passed the holy grail of hotel pet peeves, by offering power ports on either side of the bed. You just can’t sleep well at night without easily charging your electronics in arms reach. In true bohemian Seattle style, the massive television was cleverly mounted on an art easel. This was very fitting of the neighborhood, right in the heart of the city in Belltown at 2nd & Virginia. For most Seattle activities, it’s an ideal place to be- within walking distance to most attractions. Fun, quirky, easy, progressive and with a fantastic cocktail bar- that’s the lasting impression of this hotel. Priced around $250 a night, which includes a complimentary wine and spirits cocktail hour for all guests (from 5-6PM, btw) it’s a very palatable option, and one we’d absolutely return to and recommend for a stay you’ll remember. The novelty of the carry on cocktail kit “to go” was not lost on us…
