Modern, elegant, and focused on service, the Hotel 1000 is an excellent choice for travelers wanting luxury amenities in a smaller downtown property. Opened in 2006 two blocks from the Seattle Art Museum and the pier, this hotel puts an emphasis on technology—its rooms are wired with fiber optics for guests’ Internet needs and heat sensors so the staff knows when not to interrupt. Some of the rooms are configured with open baths (with optional privacy screen) to allow for a view of the bay while soaking in the deep bathtub that fills up from a spout in the ceiling—a feature in even the standard rooms.

Hotel 1000 sits on the Pioneer Square side of downtown, close to Seattle’s oldest (and newest) restaurants and bars. A few blocks away, sign up for Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour; it’s a good introduction to Seattle’s colorful history. The attractive, loftlike Bar Sajor, with an open kitchen and rotating menu, is also just a short walk away. The stadiums are at this end of town; don’t be surprised when the streets fill with Seahawks and Sounders fans on game day.
