The Ändra is like a smaller, gentler version of the W: It has similar modern (in this case, Scandinavian) aesthetics, but is a little brighter, a little more personal, and a little less expensive. The 119 guest rooms are done up in warm browns and cool blues, with khaki walls, alpaca headboards, and oversized executive-style desks. Please forgive the Ändra for joining the current trend of calling a lobby a "living room," because in this case it actually feels like one, with a fireplace, cords of stacked wood, and some cozy nooks and crannies to relax in. The attached restaurant is Lola, a North African/Mediterranean venture from local star chef Tom Douglas. It's well placed in Belltown, with plenty of trendy restaurant and nightlife options.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
During the dot-com boom, Seattle's Belltown neighborhood went from a low-rent commercial stretch to a hot restaurant and retail epicenter. Now, it's found a suitably hip hotel in the Ändra. In the lobby, Pacific Northwest meets Scandinavia in zebra-skin Alvar Aalto armchairs, a rough-hewn granite fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling maple bookcases; translucent-glass barn doors open onto the Greek restaurant, Lola. Upstairs, the 119 rooms—in an appealing palette of blue, brown, green, and taupe—betray the building's past as a 1926 residential hotel: Quarters are so large and comfortable that you may be tempted to settle in for a spell.—2005 Hot List

When to go: Labor Day weekend, for the annual Bumbershoot art and music festival at the Seattle Center, a ten-minute walk from the hotel.

Which room to book: A rear-facing top-floor suite—the better to glimpse the Seattle Monorail as it glides by less than a block away

Amenities: Bar/lounge, Gym, 24-hour Room Service, Wheelchair-accessible
