Concierge.com's insider take:
Back on the map after an extensive 2007 refurbishment, this cozy boutique charmer offers 121 tryst-worthy rooms in a well-positioned location downtown. As at other Kimpton properties, the decor is eclecticrococo accents offset stainless steel four-poster bedsbut tied together nicely with bold fabrics and classic pieces like leather wing chairs. There aren't any cookie-cutter layouts here, thanks to the quirky arrangement of the historic buildingsspecialty suites may include fireplaces, a wall or two of exposed brick, or separate media rooms. Original works selected by Seattle Art Museum curators add to the distinctive feel; Frette linens, in-room spa treatments, and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout are just a few of the other amenities.
