Sleep in Style: Luxury Hotels in Central Seattle Locales

In this hectic world, everyone deserves a little "me" time, especially when visiting or exploring one of the world's greatest cities. Enjoy your "me" time by spoiling yourself at some of the most posh luxury hotels Seattle has to offer (take the Sorrento Hotel, for example). Indulge in ritzy, on-premises upscale dining, or pamper yourself with plush king-sized beds and in-room deluxe hot tubs. Relax in top-notch spas and salons, and unwind in grand lobbies that display artwork and design features by local talents. If you travel extravagantly, Seattle luxury hotels are the only way to go.

The city boasts an alluring array of accommodations, many of them located downtown, that range from smaller boutique options to multi-floor, luxury highrises. Thanks to the city's beauty, guest room windows often reveal stunning views that feature the city's highlights (from snow-capped mountain peaks to sparkline waterways). Craving a 24/7 view of the iconic Space Needle? That can be arranged, too!

While some hotel names are specific to Seattle, others belong to nationwide brands that consistently manage to "wow"(take Kimpton, for example). Friendly staff members and knowledgeable concierges will gladly help you navigate the town and find some of the hottest attractions, shops, restaurants and bars. This is how we roll in Seattle; welcome to the land of style, comfort, community and fun!
