Kimpton Hotel Vintage Seattle

Seattle, USA

Virgin rating

The hotel

It’s not called ‘Vintage’ for nothing — this is the Grand Cru of Seattle hotels, with interiors, wine lists, and social get togethers, all under the influence of Washington State’s wine country. It may be in downtown Seattle, but step into this boutique retreat and you may feel like you’re in a tasting room, surrounded by earthy shades blended with grape greens and burgundy. It’s the perfect place to sample the region’s fine tipples, with a complimentary wine hour every evening. Why not move on to the award-winning Tulio Ristorante, where you can tuck into Italian classics that come with a fresh Northwest twist — and a wine cellar of course.

Where is it

In downtown Seattle, on Fifth Avenue, in one direction you’ve got Pioneer Square’s preppy bookstores and galleries, and in the other you’ve got Pike Place Market, Westlake Center, and Pacific Place’s gourmet food and fashion. It’s also just a short walk from the waterfront, a block from the business district, and a few blocks from art and culture, including Seattle Art Museum (SAM), Benaroya Symphony Hall, and 5th Avenue Theater.

I booked this as a surprise staycation for my fiance. He hadn't had a day off in a long time. Thought this would be fun to get out of the house. I booked on hotelsTonight.com Later called the hotel to see about have an amenity brought to the room. I wasn't epexcting much because it was a hotelstonight booking and last minute. Natalie, at the front desk answer and was FANTASTIC. She verified my booking and took care of the amenity request. She was sweet and accommodating. When we got to the hotel, she was there to great us, upgraded our room too ( wow). we had such a nice time. The hotel also offered a happy hour in the lobby, wine and mingle with other guests. I'm really happy with this hotel, would definitely stay there again. thank you Natalie for everything :-) Read less

I do not understand the other reviews, as not at all the experience I had. This is not even on par with national chains. I am a seasoned traveler (personal & business). A boutique hotel without the coolness and amenities Located in an unsafe part of town a good distance from any places to eat Site says they have a bar. They don’t No coffee in room. No bottled water. Only 2 glasses in room. Restaurant only open limited days Wed – Sat 5-10 pm – so no bar access, no place to get breakfast or lunch in hotel. Site says $10 F&B credit to our restaurant, no such credit was given. Plus despite the Proof of Vax required for all Seattle restaurants this one did not enforce. Why do they not post on their website restaurant hours of operation? Arrived after a long day of travel and nowhere to get food or a cocktail. So frustrating! Rooms are small despite getting a corner room Couch was saggy and uncomfortable Not all the channels worked on the TV – said unable to access No ceiling lights Room was dark when I came in. Extremely small bath not big enough for 2 No mini bar but listed as having No room service Very very small lobby sitting area. Epic fail. And will not be back Read less

This is my fourth stay at this hotel with my wife or friends. This last visit was after the renovations in the reception area. It rained four out of the five days on this trip. The sunshine in all of this was the hotel staff and especiallyMikala T. She welcomed my buddy and I with a big smile and sent a bottle of red wine to the room when she knew I was a vet and it was just before the 11th. (67-69). The room was spotless and comfortable with a view of the federal courthouse. The wine our was great and enjoyable by the fireplace watching the rain fall! I will stay there on my next visit with family or friends. Read less

We booked the room last minute after a show. We arrived late in the night and Lameka took great care of us. She made us feel comfortable and welcome. We were blown away by the room. It was clean and huge! The bed was cozy and we didn’t want to leave. We will be back next time we’re in town!

Wow! The team handled the busy hawks and 49ers game like they had been doing it for 20 years. The valet was prompt even though you could see them running crazy and the front desk manager Mikala handled all the guests quickly- even with their crazy demands we were over hearing. Overnight team always greater us. Would definitely stay here again for… Read more
