Green luxury is the focus at the Hyatt at Olive 8. It’s Seattle’s first LEED-certified hotel and residence. The hotel takes up the first 17 floors; the rest of the building’s 36 floors are residential. The public spaces are sleek, with modern lines and minimalist decor in earth tones and pale blues and greens. The rooms are designed for superior energy efficiency, but there’s no compromise on amenities. The corner view rooms have walk-in showers and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Seattle skyline. The hotel is two blocks from the Washington State Convention Center, making it a perfect base for events and conferences.
