    Four Seasons Hotel Seattle
    Seattle, WA
    #1 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1722 reviewsTripAdvisor (1722)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting about a block from the waterfront in downtown Seattle, the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle is sleek and polished with a few touches inspired by the region. Local artwork is on display throughout the property, and the popular Goldfinch Tavern serves Pacific Northwest fare paired with tasty cocktails and craft beers. Recent travelers compliment this Four Seasons property's highly attentive service staff. Many visitors also love the extra perks like the infinity pool and its views of both the Olympic Mountains and Elliott Bay. When it's time to retreat to your digs, you'll be greeted by plush terry bathrobes, down duvets and pillows, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations, among other luxe features. If you bring a vehicle to this property, though, be ready to shell out for expensive valet fees.

    Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle
    Seattle, WA
    #2 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3559 reviewsTripAdvisor (3559)

    Stylish since 1924, the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle has stayed true to its elegant roots. Crystal chandeliers dangle delicately from the arched ceiling and a classical pianist performs at afternoon tea in The Terrace lounge. The Fairmont Olympic Hotel receives high praise for everything from its indoor swimming pool to its impeccable service staff to its convenient downtown location. Inside the 450 accommodations, lodgers find terry bathrobes, windows that open to let in the breeze, internet access (free for Le Club AccorHotels members) and goose-down duvets. But fair warning: The Fairmont is pricey, and so is the food at The Georgian Restaurant, though guests say the stay and the eats are worth the splurge.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1261 reviewsTripAdvisor (1261)
    Free WiFi

    Just steps from the Pike Place Market, the Thompson Seattle is an up-and-comer in the Emerald City hospitality scene. The hotel, which opened in June 2016, occupies a distinctive building with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Its 158 rooms and suites come equipped with Samsung televisions, complimentary in-room Wi-Fi access, honor bars and views of the courtyard, the city streets or Puget Sound. Guests say the Thompson Seattle's location, just a mile from top sights like the Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass, is one of its biggest assets. Travelers were also impressed with the rooftop bar, The Nest, which offers impressive views of the harbor. The hotel also has an on-site restaurant, Scout PNW, which showcases seasonal ingredients and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, in addition to a special multicourse tasting menu experience. Business travelers will also be pleased to find that the Thompson Seattle offers 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space across six indoor and outdoor venues.

    W Seattle
    Seattle, WA
    #7 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1093 reviewsTripAdvisor (1093)

    Nestled in the heart of the downtown area, this stylish W fits in well with the other ultra-mod hotels of Seattle. Board games are available in the Living Room lobby, local artwork is on display at the welcome desk and in-room spa treatments are available at the ready. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with Bliss bath products, pillow-top beds, flat-screen TVs and large, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows that boast city vistas. Most recent travelers compliment the service staff, as well as the food and atmosphere at the on-site restaurant, TRACE. Other guests were less pleased with the steep daily parking fees and length of time it took to get hot water in the showers. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    Kimpton Hotel Vintage Seattle
    Seattle, WA
    #8 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1930 reviewsTripAdvisor (1930)

    Nestled in downtown Seattle, this small Kimpton property is perfect for wine lovers. Guest rooms are named after the vineyards of Washington wine country and luxuriously decorated. And the complimentary evening wine hour – featuring tastings with local winemakers – is popular with travelers. Guests also love the comfy pillow-top beds, the yoga mats in every room, the complimentary coffee and the wireless Internet (that's complimentary for IHG Rewards Club members). They also compliment the friendly service staff. However, some guests express disappointment in the expensive parking rates. If you care for a bite to eat, Tulio Italian restaurant is a must-do, with notable cuisine and a pleasant ambiance.

    Kimpton Alexis Hotel Seattle
    Seattle, WA
    #9 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2278 reviewsTripAdvisor (2278)

    Located about a mile north of Pioneer Square, Kimpton Alexis Hotel Seattle has eclectically decorated flair. Leather wing chairs are paired with stainless steel four-poster beds, and not one of the 121 guest rooms and suites has the same layout thanks to the quirky contours of this old building. But what really makes the Alexis a standout are its rotating art exhibits, found in the lobby and gallery room. There are also a handful of specialty suites, like the Spa Suite, with a two-person soaking tub with jets and separate walk-in shower. Recent travelers love this Kimpton property's convenient location, as well as its friendly service staff and adjoining bookshop/bar and grill, the Bookstore Bar and Café. Plus, guests can score extra perks for being part of the IHG Rewards Club loyalty program.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3219 reviewsTripAdvisor (3219)
    Free WiFi

    This ultra-modern property is popular with trendy travelers. The dramatic backlit staircase takes center stage in the small lobby, but recent visitors also love the futuristic-looking fire pit in the adjacent sitting room. Guest rooms are a bit less flamboyant, decorated in dark earth tones with dramatic details like tubs that fill from the ceiling. Techies rejoice over the high-tech in-room phones that also show area dining options, as well as the flashy televisions that double as art displays. And the Hotel 1000 also has the city's only virtual-reality Golf Club that has more than 50 courses from around the world, including the Old Course at St. Andrews, Pinehurst No. 2 and Pebble Beach. Recent guests praised the on-site All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar for its contemporary West Coast inspired cuisine and its service. Now part of the Loews portfolio, rewards program members can enjoy perks here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1853 reviewsTripAdvisor (1853)

    The Arctic Club Seattle – originally built as a fraternal men's business club in 1916 – is all about honoring its Klondike Gold Rush heritage.

Up on the third floor you'll even find taxidermy walrus heads from the prospecters' Alaskan adventures. Guest rooms keep in vintage step, but with modern touches like flat-screen TVs, in-room coffee makers and iPod docking stations. Recent travelers give high praise for this DoubleTree property's Pioneer Square locale as well as the Polar Bar and JUNO Restaurant on-site. Members of the Hilton Honors program are eligible to earn and redeem rewards points for staying here.

    The Heathman Hotel Kirkland
    Kirkland, WA
    #12 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 634 reviewsTripAdvisor (634)
    Free WiFi

    This charming boutique hotel is nestled along the waterfront in Kirkland, a small suburb located about 11 miles northeast of downtown Seattle. The Heathman is all about personalizing your experience with options like the Art of Sleep Menu (available at booking), which allows you to chose from three mattress options. Other popular perks include complimentary transportation around Kirkland in a luxury hybrid SUV, daily happy hour and in-room French press coffee makers. But what really hits home with guests is the highly attentive service they receive from the hotel staff. This service extends to the on-site restaurant, Trellis, which serves farm-to-table American cuisine. Guests were wowed that the fresh ingredients came from executive chef Brian Scheehser's 18-acre farmland.

    The Woodmark Hotel and Still Spa
    Kirkland, WA
    #13 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1306 reviewsTripAdvisor (1306)
    Free WiFi

    Nestled in the über-upscale suburb of Kirkland (guests here share vistas with Bill Gates' mansion), The Woodmark Hotel and Still Spa feels more like an exclusive resort than a hotel. Basic amenities include complimentary "Raid the Pantry" late-night snacks, cozy in-room chenille throws, flat-screen TVs and Molton Brown toiletries. And then there's the Still Spa, which features unique and luxurious treatments inspired by the Pacific Northwest. Recent travelers were also really impressed with their dinner at the Bin on the Lake restaurant and the stellar service staff throughout the Destination Hotel. The Beach Cafe is another waterfront dining option that guests love for its fresh fish selection. However, visitors were disappointed that you had to pay an additional nightly amenity fee. You'll find The Woodmark Hotel & Spa about 10 miles northeast of Seattle on a picturesque lakefront, and guests can enjoy the natural beauty of the area on complimentary bikes or kayaks.

    Kimpton Palladian Hotel

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 683 reviewsTripAdvisor (683)

    Boasting a quirky mantra – "where elegant meets edgy" – the Palladian certainly lives up to its superlatives, according to recent guests. Visitors say everything from the hotel's pristine rooms and the friendly front desk staff to Shaker + Spear's meals and Pennyroyal bar's craft cocktails was impressive. Like other Kimpton properties, the Palladian hosts a daily wine hour, it offers in-room spa services, it's pet-friendly and Kimpton Karma rewards members can get "Raid the Bar" credits, earn reward nights and enjoy free in-room internet access. Speaking of rooms, the hotel's accommodations come with large work desks, funky decor and beds with pillow-top mattresses and Frette linens. Other on-site amenities available to guests include a 24-hour gym and free loaner bikes to cruise around Seattle. You'll find the Palladian downtown, near many of the city's top sights like Pike Place Market and the Seattle Art Museum.

    The Edgewater, A Noble House Hotel
    Seattle, WA
    #15 in Best Hotels in Seattle
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 4525 reviewsTripAdvisor (4525)
    Free WiFi

    Seattle's only true waterfront hotel, The Edgewater balances on its own pier into the harbor, giving guests prime vistas of the Puget Sound. Of course, there's a catch: The waterfront rooms with balconies are smaller than those waterfront rooms without balconies. But trust us, the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, the picturesque views through them and the claw-foot tubs in the bathrooms make up for the lack of floor space. Plus, recent travelers love the cozy, lodge-like feel of their rooms, especially the gas fireplaces. Recent guests do warn that walls are thin, though, and that some accommodations could use an update. Venture outside of your room and you'll find the waterfront Six Seven Restaurant, which serves up creative cuisine for three meals a day.
