Seattle, Seattle & Washington State
Historic brick grittiness meets creature comforts at this turn-of-the-century building. On the National Register of Historic Places – and the Gold Rush map – Alexis Hotel won a Condé Nast Traveler People’s Choice Award in 2015. Its downtown location puts you between Pike Place and Pioneer Square, each a few blocks away, with free morning tea and coffee before you head out (and a free wine hour when you return). The 24-hour gym’s anything but historic, winning Shape magazine’s award for ‘most fun’ hotel gym. And its popular Bookstore Bar & Café is as cosy as it sounds: book-covered brick walls and views of bustling 1st Avenue set the scene from brunch to late-night dining, with dishes by award-winning TV chef Caprial Pence, and an incredible rare whiskey selection.
