I chose Hotel 1000 after Googling 'most romantic places to stay in Seattle'. First choice was the Inn at the Market, second choice was Hotel 1000. I spent some time reading through the reviews and looking at the room pictures. The rooms seemed very affordable for the location and amenities - so I booked it.
My Husband and I had scheduled our second marriage to be conducted at the District Courthouse a few blocks away. The judge informed us that we would need witnesses. We do not live in Seattle and this proved to be a slight hiccup in our plans. On a whim, I e-mailed the general manager to see if we could 'hire' witnesses. He responded very promptly and Ben, the concierge took things over from there. Upon check-in, I was greeted with a rose and champagne. Ben very warmly welcomed us and introduced us to Kelly - it was as if we were old friends. We were allowed to check in to our room early and arrived to find chocolate covered strawberries and rose petals in our breathtaking room. The hotel provided us with transportation to the courthouse in their new Lexus, Ben and his co-worker Kelly met us to 'witness'. Neither would accept a tip. After our brief ceremony, my Husband and I walked to The Metropolitan Grill. Our waiter served us with a salmon appetizer 'from Ben'. We were just amazed. The ENTIRE staff at the hotel was bubbly, responsive, fun and professional. From housekeeping to the massage therapists - not one ounce of snottiness or pretension. I have never experienced this level of customer service. Keep up the hospitality Hotel 1000, we will be back many, many times! Special kudos to Ben and Kelly, absolute star employees.
Also of note: the hotel and spa were very clean and lovely. The bed was very comfy, our room was small and delightful. The bathroom is uber cool. We ordered breakfast in our room, it arrived in 15 minutes and was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
