W Seattle, Seattle, Washington $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Self-consciously hip—but never exuding a too-cool-for-you vibe—the W is a haven for the design-conscious. In the lobby, deep couches, custom board games, and bookshelves stocked with art books encourage lingering, as does the stylish crowd. The 426 spacious rooms are decorated with black-and-white photographs of Seattle, floor-to-ceiling windows, and upholstered banquettes. All the better to take in the stunning vistas.
