From the moment you enter Hotel Vintage, you feel welcome, at home, and at ease. The bellhop opens the door and greets you after a long flight or vigorous day spent exploring. You walk into the beautifully designed lobby and are again greeted warmly by the smiling concierge.
“A glass of wine, tonight?” Yes, please. You made it just in time; it’s wine hour at Hotel Vintage and you get to unwind with a free glass or two produced by local winemakers. Have a seat in one of the plush chairs by the ornate fireplace. You earned it.
This standard of hospitality feels commonplace here, and it doesn’t stop with smiles and free wine. Bikes are available to take around town free of charge, as well as umbrellas for the frequent drizzle. Your pets are also welcomed with dog treats and water right by the front desk, as well as a sign acknowledging the name of each pet staying on the premises. It’s easy to see why this hotel was named one of the best city hotels in the United States.
The Hotel Vintage was designed using the European history of wine as an inspiration. The lobby is reminiscent of a tasting room. The guest rooms embody the spirit of wine with rich colors, and more than 88,000 recycled corks make up the headboard art that is in each room. Hotel Vintage has even partnered with local fragrance designer Molly Rae to create two signature scents that speak to the wine theme of the hotel and are specifically designed to enhance your wine drinking experience.
And you don’t need to venture far to get a mouthwatering Italian meal. Tulio sits adjacent to the lobby, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Tulio, likewise, has been recognized as one of the best Italian restaurants in the U.S. and is a must for your Seattle visit.
When staying here, you won’t need to venture far to experience any of Seattle’s must-see attractions. Just a few blocks away you’ll find the waterfront, where you can spend hours (or days) shopping at the Pike Place Market, or, if you have kids, the Seattle Aquarium is also close by.

Located just a short walk from Pike Place Market sits a luxurious boutique hotel, the Thompson Seattle. It’s the place to be if you want to stay near the bustling heart of the city. Close and easily explorable is First Avenue, a street lined with numerous bars, cafes, and restaurants. Just one block up is the waterfront, and equally close you’ll find museums and local landmarks.
The 12-story Thompson Seattle opened its doors in summer 2016 and boasts 158 guest rooms, many offering breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Olympic mountain range from floor-to-ceiling windows. Internationally acclaimed Seattle firm Olson Kundig designed the architecture and glass exterior, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor and evoking a “sense of visual accessibility.”
“We’re proud to open Thompson Seattle as a hotel deeply connected to the energy of the city,” said Amanda Parsons, general manager of the Thompson Seattle. “The property is a labor of love, and our partners and I hope to see the hotel become a destination where guests and neighbors gather to share stories and adventures, as well as create memories.”
Speaking of creating a memory, ever wanted to arrive to a hotel in style? Well, you’re in luck! The Thompson Seattle offers a private luxury sedan service to take you around for $60 an hour.
Worried about not being able to bring your furry companions to this luxurious new hotel? No worries—pets are welcome.
And if you’re hungry after walking around the city, look no further than The Nest, Thompson Seattle’s rooftop bar, lounge, and terrace, which offers spectacular views of both land and sea along with handcrafted cocktails and shareable plates.
If Seattle’s rather common rainfall forces you inside, then head to Scout, a restaurant featuring indigenous foods such as oysters and wild mushrooms from the Cascade mountains. If you’re looking for something more intimate, guests can dine at the Chef’s Table, enjoying multiple courses that showcase the region’s offerings.
While you may have adventuring on your mind, you’ll be itching to get back at the end of the day to your plush bed and the beautifully designed Thompson Seattle.
