The focus of downtown Seattle's activity has moved, block by block, northward over the past century. Recent construction and current commercial vitality puts this hotel right at the vital core of the city, within an easy walk to most everything.
This is accommodating accommodation. Two comfortable chairs are set flanking a marble table at exactly the proper distance and angle for easy TV viewing and coffee/martini sipping. The work station has an easily adjustable chair and convenient desktop level outlets and inputs for all electronic devices. The space is thoughtfully arranged for ease of movement and a sense of expansiveness.
The bed and pillows are superb, inviting you to indulge yourself on the occassional grey morning. The bathroom is very commodius with a large shower and contemporary fixtures. It's a bright room with ample magnification. A nice touch is the dimmer which allows subdued light to filter through the translucent, sliding door--No bumping around at night.
The finest of materials have been used everywhere--lots of mirrors, chrome, granite and marble. The rooms are harmoniously warm-neutral. A tasteful, restrained and, ulttimately, elegant hotel.
Locals tell me the restaurant is excellent and the breakfast among the city's best.
The only drawback is Hyatt's eagerness to overcharge for every extra--the cash machine in the hotel charged 10%. Internet is pricy.
As a Philadelphian, but 60 year resident of Seattle, I would not consider any other hotel.
