We planned an action packed full day in Seattle. We started with a walk to the monorail and a rapid ride up to the Space Needle and Seattle Center park. We wandered around a bit, then went into the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition. This was absolutely spectacular. Everyone's seen art using glass (Chris' family is fond of Jo Down's from Cornwall …
Today was always planned to be mostly a day of transit. We wanted to cut out the drive from Calgary to Seattle - which is several hours and decided to take a short internal flight as a way of doing so. That also simplified a lot of issues with car hire etc. Our flight was at 5pm but the airline recommended a couple of hours to clear US customs …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Andra Seattle
Hotel Andra -- the Best!
My first trip to Seattle, and I lucked out by accidentally picking the perfect hotel to stay in. The suite was very roomy not to mention CLEAN!!! The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. And the location (especially for the price) could not be beat!! If I ever return to the Seattle, I'm going to insist on staying at Hotel Andra.
You must stay at this hotel!!
After much thought I settled on Hotel Andra partly b/c of the fantastic deal I got ($140/nt) and also from the looks of it and reviews..Let me tell you that it represents even better in person!..Great location, courteous staff, top quality furnishings even down to sheets and toiletries!..A true "boutique" hotel in every sense..
Stay at the Andra!
Had a special girls night get-together at the Andra, rented a Lux Suite and everything was fabulous. We preordered appetizers from Lolas, and the timing, service and food exceeded our expectations. Room service breakfast was also great - lots of options and tasty again. The room itself was spaciioius, the beds comfortable and clean clean clean. We added a tip down rollaway bed for comfort, much better than the pull-out couches. Stay here if you can - location to everything is very convienent.
Great Seattle Location
Great location, wonderful restaurant options at the hotel, and in the neighborhood just steps away. A refreshing environment with its recent renovations. Just the right size of hotel in the city to feel at home and in relax in style.
A Fabulous Hotel Experience
Chic but friendly, "uptown" but accessible--what a fabulous hotel! Hotel Andra was our Intro to Seattle, having read reviews on this site. We enjoyed a junior suite (one room w/sofa, plasma tv, king bed, & bar) -- small but comfortable and decor to write home about. Staff were efficient and helpful; location prime. The Tom Douglas restaurant, Lola, was excellent.
A great boutique hotel.
We stayed at Hotel Andra for our 21st wedding anniversary. We loved it. It is very chic and contemporary. The suite was great with a bar and sitting area. Attention to detail is obvious even down to the plasma TV. Fifteen minutes after we checked in a complimentary bottle of champagne arrvived. The location can't be beat either. The staff was extremely friendly. We had a good breakfast at the restaurant - LOLA. I highly recommend this hotel.
We would definitely put clients there.
Great review for a great hotel!
This hotel was great! I'm actually not a huge fan of boutique hotels but this is the best Ive stayed in. Some of them are too avant garde to be comfortable. That was not the case at all with Hotel Andra. We were upgraded to a suite (not the "Lux Suite") and were very pleased. It was huge! Walk in closet, king bed, sofa, bar, office, huge television, etc. The bed was so comforable. We also loved the soaps in the room. There was not one speck of dust or dirt to be found anywhere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beyond the hotel itself the location is perfect. In fact not knowing Seattle very well we were shocked to discover how central we were to the major sights! Great review for a great hotel! Bravo!
The Hotel Andra was very nice and in a good location in downtown Seattle. We shared an Andra Lux Suite with another couple, and had plenty of room. The master bedroom was large with a king size bed, and the sofabed was a very comfortable queen. The staff turned down the beds and were very accommodating and polite. The decor is what you would expect from a dowtown "chic" hotel, and the plasma tv's in the room were an added bonus. The only limitatation was one small bathroom in the suite, but we all managed just fine. The location was excellent for its proximity to Pikes Market, the Westlake Shopping Center, and even to walk to the Space Needle. They provided a complimentary continental breakfast across the street at one of the local restaurants (fruit, juice, pastries) which was a nice. but I'd save my appetite for the vendors at Pikes Market!
Had a 5 day stay at Hotel Andra in late June. We absolutely loved our room & the environment. Staff was friendly & courteous. We felt very comfortable & pampered. It's easy walking distance to almost anywhere in downtown Seattle. If I have any future trips to Seattle, I wouldn't stay anywhere else but Hotel Andra!
Nice little boutique hotel
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Andra in June 2004. The remodel has paid off and the hotel now has a hip, eclectic feel with beautiful artwork scattered throughout. The Scandinavian decor and earthy tones are soothing and give the hotel a nice feel. We stayed in the Andra Lux suite and really enjoyed the room. Convenient location and friendly staff throughout the hotel.
The Assaggio and Dahlia Restaurants that are located adjacent and across the street are excellent places to enjoy dinner.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Seattle.
