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've had some mediocre Kimpton experiences, but the Palladian is not one of them. It's immaculately designed from head to toe and the theming throughout is good fun. The staff was friendly and attentive. I really appreciated the hardware choices in the room, in particular the bathroom. The shower was fantastic, though it really needed an extractor fan to clear the steam. And the overall size of the bathroom made it unworkable for two people trying to get ready. That was the only real blemish. Comfy bed. Quiet. Nice outlook. The location could not be better for Seattle. Everywhere is close. If I was to be overly picky: 1. A female celeb in the lobby would have been appropriate 2. The restaurant design wasn't in synch with the rest of the property, including the bar - perhaps another designer did this 3. It was weird sleeping with a Michael Jackson pillow Will return! Read less

We had high hopes after staying at the Kimpton Vintage in Portland which was superb. Our room at the Palladian was stylish with a nice modern bathroom with walk-in shower.

We had high hopes after staying at the Kimpton Vintage in Portland which was superb. Our room at the Palladian was stylish with a nice modern bathroom with walk-in shower. It’s also in a good central location, just minutes from Pike Place Market. There is room for improvement; no tonic water in the mini bar and the hotel bar was out of stock so gin and tonic was not possible; we were not told about the complimentary drinks hour but just happened to stumble across it on our second night; mirror in bathroom should be steam resistant for this standard of hotel; no comfy occasional chair in the room and lack of hooks to hang coats on back of door for example; no coffee maker in the room. I provide this feedback in the hope the hotel will take heed and push itself into the exceptional bracket! Read less

Stayed for a few nights after a long flight from Australia. The staff were very welcoming and we managed to get a late meal in the very tasty hotel restaurant. Our first room was a little too close to the noise of the street (level 2), but they happily moved us to a higher floor which was quiet. Loved the large bed and the wine hour. Very short… Read more

Very short walk to the fantastic Pike markets, Space Needle and many other sites. Lots of good food in the area. Read less

Ideal location for Pikes market, the space needle and downtown! Staff is super helpful and friendly. Valet parking is expensive but fast service. Rooms are a bit small and the decor is a bit bizarre. But the place is clean. Restaurant and bar both serve food with a nice menu.

Kimpton hotels are usually a good value, but in my experience can be hit-or-miss on room size and service. This is easily the best and nicest Kimpton I’ve seen. Excellent room with terrific bathroom and great shower products. The sliding bathroom door isn’t for everyone, and no rack or shelf in the shower is a bit of a drag, but overall a great… Read more
