City Slicker


Cascadian Charisma

Sleek and stylish, the Thompson Seattle channels the best of Seattle, with water views, superlative food and an atmosphere that’s hipper than a barista competition. A gleaming building blocks from the water, the glass-front hotel makes the most of its setting with floor-to-ceiling views of Puget Sound and Pike Place Market. Sample the bounty from both at signature restaurant Scout, which nods to the great outdoors with freshly caught seafood, foraged mushrooms and other ingredients that are as perfectly Seattle as the hotel itself.

For a deep dive into regional flavors, arrange seats at the Chef’s Counter for a 17-course tasting of the best local flavors, prepared by Chef Josh Henderson.

Worth getting out of bed for

Between its world-renowned hiking trails, stunning seascapes, locavore food movement and hip urban art scene, Seattle has something for every type of traveler, and the Thompson Seattle is ideally placed to take advantage of it all. The hotel is a coffee-bean’s toss from Pike Place Market, one of the country's oldest and most beloved farmers' markets and home to dozens of market stalls, fishmongers and specialty food shops. Grab a java from Storyville Coffee Company or pay tribute at the original Starbucks, then wander the multilevel market checking out the ultra-fresh fare. For panoramic Seattle views, head to the top of the Space Needle, Seattle’s most recognizable icon. Back at ground level, check out the nearby Chihuly Garden and Glass, an enchanting exhibition of gravity-defying illuminated glass gardens and canopies. For a taste of local Seattle life, head for Capitol Hill, home to some of the city’s best bookstores, restaurants and, of course, coffee shops.

Some of Seattle’s most alluring attractions are just outside the city: The Cascade Mountains, an hour outside town, draw outdoor enthusiasts from around the world for hiking, mountain biking and alpine skiing. Further afield, the Olympic Mountains are exceptional for rugged hikes and camping. The hotel has prime views of Puget Sound, which is renowned for its fishing, but also excellent for sailing on beautiful days.

Local restaurants

Named for its setting on the top floor of iconic Pike Place Market, Matt's in the Market sources much of its exceptionally fresh fare from the farmers nearby, for dishes like wild king salmon with market vegetables and a robust shellfish stew with seasonal vegetables in coconut curry. Literary geeks and mollusk aficionados alike will love The Walrus & The Carpenter in Ballard. Named for a poem by Lewis Carroll — wherein the namesake characters eat every oyster in sight — Renee Erickson’s charming restaurant serves a daily selection of local oysters and other impeccable fish, as well as a nice selection of cheese and meat. Set in a midcentury-modern home with glorious views, Canlis has set the Seattle standard for fine dining since 1950. The prix-fixe menu of three, four or seven courses, draws on local bounty, including the Pacific Northwest's impeccable seafood. Highlights include the family recipe for romaine salad and the 90-page wine list.

Local cafés

There’s a reason Seattle has a reputation for coffee: Few cities in the world rival the scene here for shops pulling quality shots. For the closest to espresso ecstasy, head to one of the three locations of Espresso Vivace, founded as part of David Schomer’s quest to taste the perfect espresso. For some classes with your caffeine, venerable Victrola Coffee Roasters offers cuppings at its showcase cafe, in a converted 1920's auto dealership in Capitol Hill. For a sense of the classic Seattle-style shop, head for one of the 10 locations of Cherry Street Coffee House, all serving excellent coffee drinks made by expert baristas.

Local bars

Few bars can surpass the Thompson’s own Nest for views, but Seattle has an excellent cocktail scene. Rachel's Ginger Beer, in Pike Place Market, serves refreshing Moscow Mules and more creative concoctions, all using the spicy house signature ginger concoction. The ginger beer itself is available for takeaway in 12-ounce pours or growlers.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this slick hotel in Seattle and unpacked their coffee beans and flannel, a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Thompson Seattle in Washington…

Can’t decide between city, sea or snow? The Thompson Seattle offers it all. One of the most exciting cities in the United States, Seattle is home to a thriving emerging art scene, and the Thompson sits in the heart of it all, a five-minute walk from the Seattle Art Museum and easy stroll from the waterfront Olympic Sculpture Garden. Seattle is a city that takes seriously its waterfront location, with excellent seafood. Blocks from the waterfront, the hotel offers some of the city’s most sweeping views of Puget Sound, including the new illuminated 53-meter ferris wheel and the nearby Seattle Aquarium. The Thompson is also set beside the iconic Pike Place Market, one of the country’s original farmers’ markets and home to some of the freshest fish and produce. Taste the bounty in action at Scout, on the hotel’s street level, with a commitment to local flavors and a look that channels the great outdoors. Come Washington’s mild winters, the hotel is an easy drive from both the Cascades and the Olympus Mountains, where alpine adventurers from around the world converge to ski, snowmobile and enjoy nature.

Fantastic location, right by the market. All the staff were friendly and really helpful. The room was lovely and really appreciated the little touches - especially the macaroons waiting in my room after check-in. The Crocodile Cafe is right around the corner - great venue for live music.

Don’t expect

A bath tub - but the shower was great.
