Kimpton Palladian

Seattle, Seattle & Washington State

The hotel

Like a vintage Rolls Royce with leopard-print seats, the Kimpton Palladian delivers luxury with a brilliantly playful side. It’s location could scarcely be better – within walking distance of Pike Place Market and loads of great restaurants, bars and cafés. But such is this 1910 landmark’s hip-vintage design – check out the faux-classical portraits featuring Chuck Norris and other legends – and high-end amenities – the complimentary yoga mats are cool, and we love the speakeasy-style Pennyroyal lounge – that there’s a good chance you’re going to have to remind yourself to leave the Palladian at all. Be sure to raise a locally sourced libation at the daily Social Hour (5:00pm), and take advantage of the complimentary bicycle hire, too.

I love Kimpton properties and the Palladium did not disappoint. Traveling during COVID can be tricky, but I felt perfectly comfortable at the Palladium with the precautions being taken. First, let's start with the staff. I called prior to my arrival and spoke with Jonathan because I wanted to ensure my room type. He was extremely helpful and even remembered me at check-in. We're in Seattle to celebrate our birthdays and Jonathan graciously upgraded our room. The level of service we received from both Jonathan and Sahara was superb! They were both genuinely pleasant and friendly every time we passed the front desk, and not that I'm only being nice because it's my job friendly 😉. We talked places to visit, restaurant suggestions, etc. LOCATION - located about 2 blocks from Pike Place and the Market. It took us about 7-10 mins (if that). We also walked to Pier 56 for dinner at infamous Ivers. There's countless restaurants within walking distance. We decided to Uber to the Space Needle for less than $7, which we could have walked to in probably 15mins. Arriving from the airport was about $42 in an Uber so we decided to be adventurous and take the light rail for $3 each and took about 40mins. From the station it was about a 12min walk (uphill 😊). Property - as a Kimpton it was full of charm. I missed the usual beverage offerings, but I'm sure that's thanks to COVID. The hotel and rooms are quaint and full of character. The one bedroom is spacious with a separate living room equipped with table and TV. The bathroom is amazing with footed tub and huge shower. The bedroom really makes you feel at home and not a hotel room. I just missed the character pillow. Maybe they aren't putting them out because of COVID. Overall - Stay here! You will be happy with your choice just as I am. Read less

The Hotel Palladian is exceptional. We just spent 7 nights there as we wait for a new apartment to be ready. I had tears in my eyes when we (me and my pup) left as it was that wonderful. Yes.

The Hotel Palladian is exceptional. We just spent 7 nights there as we wait for a new apartment to be ready. I had tears in my eyes when we (me and my pup) left as it was that wonderful. Yes. During a pandemic summer, we had the most beautiful experience. Sahara, Jonathan, and their team were the kindest, thoughtful, attentive, and service driven souls. Our room was lovely. We had stayed at over 50 Kimpton hotels since 2006 when we discovered them. This experience was a special one. We are beyond grateful for the safe and wonderful experience. Read less

The location, aesthetic, food and drink at the Kimpton Palladian are all incredible, but by far the best attribute of this fun hotel is its wonderful staff. Thanks to Steve and the employees at the Palladian we left feeling very refreshed after a busy weekend. Definitely catch a cocktail & order the brussel sprouts! We will be back

The Kimpton Palladian is a quaint boutique hotel. The rooms are inviting and decorated extremely nice! Last time I got upgraded to a one-bedroom suite which had a couch in a separate sitting room separate by a barn-door type slider. The bathroom are beautiful and love the toiletries. Beds are beyond comfortable and need to find out brand of comforter and pillows so I can get them at home! Staff calls me by name every time arrive and Molly, the resident pup, quietly greets you sitting at the front desk. What's not to love about the daily wine happy hour! This is my first choice whenever I am in Belltown. Read less

I stayed at the Kimpton Palladian for four nights while in Seattle for work. The hotel was perfectly comfortable, with lots of fun quirky touches. My room was quiet and I didn’t hear noises from the street. Every staff member I encountered was super friendly and helpful. Also their shampoo and conditioner are genuinely amazing. Obsessed!
