John Howie’s menu is populated by some of the world’s choicest cuts, imported from Omaha, Queensland, and Kyushu. The accompaniments aren't anything to sneeze at either: sides include mashed potatoes studded with lobster meat, and the award-winning wines are poured by guest sommeliers.
Radiant blue light glows through towering tequila bottles lining the bar at Blue Tequila as servers unveil an array of authentic Mexican dishes. Copiloted feast flights take off with appetizers such as beef bits or deluxe nachos piled high with fresh guacamole, sliced tomatoes, melted cheese, and a meaty base of chicken, beef, or picadillo. Tablemates then strap in for substantially portioned entrees, ranging from steaming steak fajitas to the vegetarian-friendly black bean quesadilla. After forks and knives clink victoriously against empty plates, diners qualify for one shareable serving of deep-fried ice cream, banana wraps, or Paradise chimichangas, providing sweetness only previously attainable by wrestling a pixy stick to the ground.
Even the more modest accommodations at W Seattle are deluxe. Pillow-top beds, goose-down comforters, WiFi, and bathrooms stocked with luxurious Bliss products make stays comfortable and relaxing. Guests who want a truly special stay can book the Extreme Wow suite. The 1,000-square-foot suite is located on the hotel's top floor with soaring city views, which gives guests a taste of what living in the Space Needle would be like, if the Space Needle had a jacuzzi.
While guests may come from faraway places, the food served at Trace, the W's acclaimed restaurant, doesn't. Executive Chef Steven Ariel cooks up Asian-inspired dishes with ingredients from local farms. You’ll find 100% organic produce from Willie Green's Organic Farm used in salads and locally caught seafood from Taylor Shellfish Farms in the bouillabaisse. The fresh food, served in Trace's renovated dining room, led to Food & Wine magazine naming it one of the Best Hotel Restaurants.
The first thing guests notice when walking into W Seattle is the colossal, three-story fireplace centered in the lobby. But this isn't some homespun relic. After a massive redesign (which netted the hotel a Restaurant and Bar Design Award in 2013), the architect designed a modern fireplace area that's welcoming—the space is dubbed the Living Room—while keeping to the W's modern aesthetic. In Trace, the designers took some structural columns that were once an awkward necessity and transformed them into sleek, geometric poles that frame the sushi station like curtains, drawing attention to the theatrical preparation. Elsewhere in the dining room, a mural pays homage to the duality of Seattle—a nature-lover's haven and a sci-tech mecca. One side of the mural appears to show jellyfish, but as you walk to the other side, a supersonic jet emerges from the picture.
