Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 1000 Seattle
Top Class Hotel
We stayed at the Hotel 1000 as part of our honeymoon and really enjoyed our time there. The staff were incredibly friendly and greeted us with a congratulations when we arrived. We were shown up to our room (we were upgraded to a water view) and shown where everything was/how everything worked. The room was very modern, had a great view and had everything we needed including robes, Molten Brown toiletries, flat screen TV, minibar, tea/coffee (Cafetiere with ground coffee was a nice treat). The bath and bath which fills from the ceiling was a total luxury. We ordered room service once for breakfast and that was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Location is good as it was easy to walk to all the main tourist type places and shopping area. Altogether we loved our time at this hotel and would happily return.
Tip: coming from the airport the airporter bus doesn't stop at Hotel 1000 but it does stop at a hotel about 4 blocks up so if you're willing and able to negotiate the steep roads then you can save money on a cab by using this service.
Stayed over Thanksgiving weekend. Wonderful hotel. Good staff. And @ $275/night it better be. We had dinner & drinks at BOKA, massages at Spaaah, continental breakfast in hotel, valet, front desk - all were courteous and prompt and made for a wonderful stay.
Only negative - staff was not fully aware of all hotel functions. Ex: We called down to the front one morning after a jog and wanted something light & quick to eat. Front desk suggested everywhere EXCEPT their own continental breakfast. Found out a few hours later (after eating at another restaurant).
Otherwise, would highly recommend this hotel and BOKA restaurant next door.
Great Hotel in Seattle-Wish The weather was as nice
We were in Seattle for two rainy days in early November and had a great stay at the Hotel 1000. We came down from Vancouver and due to delays at the border, didn't arrive until 9 PM.
The Valet parking staff was polite and efficient, check in went very quickly and we were in our room in a few short minutes.
We had one of the Grand Deluxe rooms, which is a corner rooms with a large sitting area and floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides.The bed and lights were already turned down when we arrived for a dramatic entrance- the lobby, hallways and room all had fabulous contemporary oriental decor and were spotlessly clean. The bathroom with the before mentioned tub was great and the bed was extremely comfortable. The hotel provided an umbrella in the closet for our use (which was a good thing, since we had record rainfall during our stay) as well as spa type bathrobes.
The IP telephone takes some exploring to understand, but once you figure it out, it is very useful and even gives you the quote of the day. When you select Valet Parking - it pops up a request for your ticket number and sends a text message to the Valet for your car.
After checking in, we wnt to BOKA - the restaurant on the lobby level of the hotel. The food and atmosphere was excellent. It is a very heppening place.
We used the nice workout facilities in the morning, The treadmills, eliptical trainers and bike all had individual TV and headpones, towels and water were provided. The fitness center is open 24 hours and after 7:00 AM you can use the showers and Dry sauna in the Spahh.
In the morning there are coffee and pastries in the library on the fourth floor.
The hotel is located between Pioneer Square and Pikes Peak Market, so it is a short walk to either. We also walked to Nordstrom which is just a little longer and to the Experience Music Project and the Space Needle which is a littel longer slill, but still not a bad walk.
We would stay here again without hesitation, but probably during a dryer month.
We just returned from two glorious days at this hotel and we can say is that it was so good, we booked a return in early December.
My wife said that the room was so well laid out that it must have been designed by a woman. The technology utilitzed for everything is great.
The service is reminiscent of the Four Seasons of 20 years ago.
The food was outstanding, the people were great, helpful, friendly and enthusiastic.
The location is perfect for getting to theater, shopping and attractions, close but away from the crowds.
It was quiet but you could hear the city noises like sirens. We opted for a city view room.
The Spaah (Spa) was grand, My wife plans a return.
The treadmill has a tv built in and it was great workout room.
It is now, for us, the best that Seattle has to offer and we will choose it first.
Nearly perfect - nearly
We stayed at the hotel for our anniversay and prior to attending a Seahawks game. What the hotel has control over, it delivers with excellence.
Hotel parking is valet only and the valet is quick and polite. The lobby is not large, but very stylish. Front desk staff was extremely cordial and eager to assist. The room was immaculately clean and well appointed, with a good selection of complimentary starbucks coffee and tazo teas. The mini bar could have used some chocolate for my late night chocolate craving, but $4 for a microbrew is very reasonable.
The bed was heavenly and a delight to sink into. I thought the pillows at the Bellagio were the best, but these were at least equal. The bath room is delightful and stylish, love the loofah in the bath, the fresh-fagranced toilletries and soft robes.
Our room was on floor 8, with a peekaboo view of the ferries crossing the Sound as the sun set behind the Olympic Mountains. Very nice. The manager had left us complimentary champagne and strawberries and an anniversary card, which was enjoyed and appreciated.
But the only thing that detracted from our stay was the street noise. I would stay here again, but I offer a word of caution about the potential for noise. When the bars close, it can be loud.
I loved this hotel. The bathroom was wonderful with seperate shower and a tub where the water fell from the ceiling. Too neat! The king sized bed was extremely comfortable. There was some street noise (I was on the 6th floor), but it wasn't often enough to really bother me. The food from Room Service was just okay. The hotel staff were very attentive and helpful. I was expecting snotty service (which I tend to get a lot when I visit north as I have a very southern accent.), but I felt very comfortable there. The lounge is very relaxing with a rock firepit. Hotel provided free wi-fi. Pike Place Market is very close by. Check in wasn't until 4 and I guess they mean 4 beacause room wasn't ready at 3. But there's plenty to do within walking distance while waiting. Compared with other hotels in the area I found the price to be very reasonable for the quality and services given ($250/night). If ever returning to Seattle I will defintely stay here again.
This place has some work to do!
Hotel 1000 is new and in a great Seattle location. The problem is this place books itself as Seattle's premiere hotel, but it has some work to do. The room is more form than function and has many little glitches.
I stayed here and loved this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice size with all the amenities you would expect, coffee press, tea maker, mini bar, flat screen tv, etc. The beds are so comfortable I didnt want to leave.
The big bathtubs are wonderful and the glass wall in the bathroom is very interesting. You can close it electronically for privacy.
This is a great location, close to the market, pioneer square, stadium, etc.
The bar/restaurant is great also. Very modern with walls that change color. It's a trendy place without the attitude.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
Stayed at the brand new Hotel 1000 in Seattle...excellent location very close to pikes place, bars, great restaurants. Service was amazing!!! We checked in early, the valet was even very friendly. My husband and I left 2 pairs of shoes in the trunk of our car, and needed them for that night out on the town. After notifying the front desk that we would need our car just to get the shoes out...she had the shoes delivered to our room in less than 3 minutes! I can't even begin to say how beautiful our hotel room was! Stayed in the Lux King. AMAZING! Beautiful view of the bay, cozy bed, flat screen tv that was personalized with our name and welcome message. The bathroom is reason enough to rent a room here. The 2 person pedastal tub really does fill from the ceiling. r-o-m-a-n-t-i-c hotel room!!
Best in Seattle? Not Really.
For frame of reference, I stayed a single night in a Parlor Suite with the Adjoining Room to form a two-bedroom suite.
As for the experiece, I have a few complaints. Although they may seem relatively minor, I feel that when a hotel bills itself as "Seattle's Premier Luxury Destination" and charges accordingly, the experience really should be very hassle-free.
The bathroom door in the suite was jammed shut and it took 3 calls to the front desk and an hour and a half before it was fixed.
Burned out lightbulbs in several lamps.
Ice - I don't mind getting ice myself, but they don't have ice machines so you have to have room service deliver it and it took, on average, about 30 minutes for ice delivery.
Checkin was a 4pm, but the room was not ready until 5.
I was billed more than the rate at which I reserved the room.
Personally, I felt like the decor was that kind of modern that borders on tacky. Too many different influences and styles. You'd have bamboo and other asian-themed accents, mixed with simple wood and metal scandanavian forms, mixed with garrish patterns, mixed with abstact expressionistic paintings.
The bathtub that fills with a stream of water straight out of the ceiling is really beautiful, but I remember wondering when I saw the picture how they keep water from getting everywhere. They don't. And you end up using half your towels just mopping up the floor.
The "adoining room" suite concept is interesting, but not very good in practice. They really are just two rooms next to one another, which really detracts from the intimacy of sharing a suite with good friends.
Very friendly staff.
Very comfortable beds and furniture.
Reasonalby priced mini-bar.
Not really worth the price. I'd prefer to stay at the W.

... banter by the Culinary Arts Center Host, Jess (from Sydney.) To my surprise I learned a couple of cooking tricks! Although I've cooked pasta ahead of time in the past, to prepare for a spaghetti dinner for fifty people, I had guessed at how early the pasta should be removed from the boiling water, rinsed and tossed with olive oil to chill in the refrigerator. The executive chef provided this helpful hint...... Precook pasta six minutes, rinse , toss with olive oil and chill one day. ...
... see Mt. Rainier some 90+ miles and Mt. Baker about 100 miles away! Also, saw a seaplane landing in Lake Washington. We were surprised how it was flying through the buildings of Seattle to reach Lake Washington. As for the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit, we could see how this exhibit is considered so high on the TripAdvisor list of attractions, #1 on the list. Chihuly glass artwork is so distinctive. We first saw his glasswork at an exhibit ...

After Amy and her family left, I played the electric piano so Mike, Caroline and Pamela could have a sing song, it was a great evening. We all turned in to our beds about 2130, again after a very full day, Thanks, Caroline and Mike. Weather; No wind, partly cloudy A.M., no wind, very pleasant arvo. Temp 20o ...
With only one full day in Seattle we wanted to make the most of it so we got up early and made our way through the fog and rain to the Space Needle. Even through the fog and rain the views were beautiful and we could imagine what it would be like if Mount Rainer was out. One thing that struck me is that through all the gray monotones every once in a while you would see a bright yellow or pink or green building to add a splash of color to the landscape. While up top the rain stopped ...
... sometimes feels like a different language. 'Do you have a bin I could use?' Is usually answered with a blank expression. - Karaoke audiences love a great performance and want a good chorus so they can join in. Also something I will miss - England needs to pick up the karaoke scene in my opinion. - People seem to take studying much more seriously than in England. Perhaps this is because of the cost but, the school culture here is definitely more pressurised and people seem to not only ...
