Setting

By Pike Place

Everything’s shipshape at Palihotel Seattle, which pays loving tribute to the city’s storied port past – simultaneously adding a generous dash of style to its exciting future. This budget-boutique stay has good looks that belie its wallet-friendly price tag, from the bold lobby lounge to the forest-green rooms and amiable bar and restaurant. Sample Palihotel’s delicious signature butter biscuits – which have deservedly won a loyal fanbase – at the Hart and the Hunter, but leave some room for provisions plucked from famous Pike Place Market (it’s your near neighbour, after all). As Seattle settings go, this one’s hard to beat.

Food and Drink

Top Table

There are no duds in this bunch, but corner booths are always a snug option.

Dress Code

Channel Seattle casual – and be rain-shower-ready when you nip out. Staff uniforms are styled with nautical flair; throw in Breton stripes or an anchor motif here and there if you also want to pay tribute to Seattle’s port past.

Hotel restaurant

The Hart and the Hunter is a relaxed setting for Southern-influenced cuisine starring local Pacific Northwest ingredients:  whatever you do, don’t miss the delicious butter biscuits. The space manages to feel industrial-cool and cosy all at once, thanks to warm wooden accents, rough whitewashed walls and cool peppermint-green banquette seating.

Hotel bar

There’s no separate bar area, but you can enjoy drinks in the laid-back restaurant. Cocktail-lovers could kick off proceedings with a Hunter Buck – vodka, apricot, lime, ginger beer and Hunter Spice – or an Our Swords: a moreish muddle of sherry, cynar, cherry, mint, peach and market fruits.

Last orders

The restaurant is open until 10pm on Friday and Saturday; 11pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday.

Room service

Order from the full menu during the restaurant’s opening hours.

Worth getting out of bed for

Familiarise yourself with the hotel restaurant first; once you’ve fuelled up, venture beyond your stylish crashpad and go exploring. Start with Seattle Art Museum – aka SAM – on 1st Avenue, which shines a spotlight on world-class visual arts in the Pacific Northwest. Catch a game of football or American football at the atmospheric CenturyLink Field, which stages regular special events. The stadium is home to the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders; it also boasts impressive skyline views and is within easy walking distance of downtown. Brave types could go for a (very chilly) dip in the Puget Sound – or get their bathing-belle fix at one of the islands up north. Try Vashon or Whidbey Island for coastal exploring; Whidbey also hosts a brilliant summer Shakespeare festival. Admire the fine-art glasswork of Dale Chihuly at Chihuly Garden & Glass museum on Harrison Street. Check the museum’s website for special events such as yoga sessions and photography exhibitions. Go and say hello to your famous neighbour: Pike Place Market, which has been going strong since 1907. Don’t miss Russian pies at Piroshky Piroshky Bakery, seafood (followed by triple-coconut cream pie) from Seatown Seabar and a warming brew from Market Spice Tea.

Local restaurants

Seattle’s Chinatown has a well-deserved reputation for being amazing: start with a dim-sum feast at Dough Zone Dumpling House to see why (you’ll find this temple to dumplings on 5th Avenue. Nirmal’s on Occidental Avenue serves innovative Indian cuisine; Nue on 14th Avenue dishes up global street-food in an eye-catching, memorabilia-bedecked dining space. Dress to impress at ravishing Canlis on Aurora Avenue, whose fine-dining menu and storied midcentury-home setting attract a very glamorous clientele.

Local bars

If you like the idea of sourdough pasta (don’t miss the first-class mac ‘n’ cheese) and deliciously potent cocktails, get yourself to fun-loving, tavern-style Von’s 1000 Spirits, at 1225 1st Avenue.

As soon as our reviewers have returned from this budget-boutique hotel in downtown Seattle and unpacked their market treats and raincoats, a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Palihotel Seattle in Washington

You won’t be sleepless in Seattle if you bed down at our pal Palihotel, whose rooms come with covetably comfy beds, artful nick-nacks and rich green hues reminiscent of a fairytale forest. You will be very well fed and watered, though, thanks to the laidback Hart and the Hunter restaurant, decorated with wooden accents, amber-coloured trimmings and industrial-chic flourishes. (Expect to be treated to delicious Pacific Northwest cuisine, including Palihotel’s addictive butter biscuits.) Stays here put you at the heart of downtown’s buzzing action, making exploring Seattle deliciously easy – and there are more than enough onsite incentives to have you hurrying happily back to boutique basecamp: seafood feasts, flavour-packed cocktails, stylish and snug rooms, and a lobby designed for lounging, for starters…
