Historical Boutique Hotel in Heart of Seattle
The antique neon sign at the top of The Roosevelt Hotel has been a part of the Seattle skyline since the red-brick high-rise hotel was constructed in 1929. A sense of Gilded Age grandeur prevails in the lobby, where you'll find elegant furnishings that include a piano, a fireplace, and Victorian armchairs.
In the deluxe double and deluxe king rooms, modern amenities mingle with antique-style accents—in some units, you might see a leaf-patterned bench at the foot of the bed. Train for marathon naps on the king-size bed or slip into a bathrobe and slippers and switch on the HDTV.
The included dining credit is valid at four restaurants in the immediate area. Il Fornaio is an Italian eatery specializing in wood-fired pizzas, housemade pastas, and rotisserie meats. Right around the corner, Daily Grill dishes classic American fare, including reuben sandwiches and new york strip steaks. Less than half a mile away, the Purple Café and Wine Bar pairs its extensive wine list with fine cheeses and upscale American fare such as pork porterhouse steaks. Morton's The Steakhouse also offers succulent steakhouse fare just a short walk away.
