Boasting an enviable downtown location, the 147-room Four Seasons is like a vertical resort with luxurious rooms, marvelous views and the most dramatically sited pool in Seattle.

  • Views from the water-facing rooms


Just a block away from Seattle’s Pike Place Market, the Four Seasons occupies the first ten floors of a 21-story residential tower overlooking Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains. The property features a sleek Northwest look, and staying here is like staying in a vertical resort. As you’d expect from a Four Seasons, the service is impeccable and the amenities plentiful, including an outdoor infinity pool that’s a one-of-a-kind luxury among downtown Seattle hotels.

The lobby is an imposing blend of marble and wood highlighted by contemporary art from the hotel’s collection of Northwest artists (throughout, the artwork is reproduced from originals in the Seattle Art Museum across the street).

The hotel’s 147 rooms and suites are unusually generous in size and comfort, with a quiet, cocooning quality that invites you to relax and linger. Floor-to-ceiling windows maximize the views. Book a Water View room and you’ll be gazing out over Elliott Bay towards the Olympic Mountains; the City View rooms provide a panorama of downtown Seattle. For extra oomph, book a corner suite with windows on two sides. The contemporary room furnishings are designed for style and comfort and enlivened by bold accents and colors. Finely crafted American ash wood detailing adds a warm, earthy glow. The gleaming, marble-clad bathrooms have soaker tubs and walk-in rain showers.

The state-of-the-art fitness center at the Four Seasons is one of the best in downtown Seattle, and the spa offers a full menu of skin-care treatments. But the hotel’s best feature is its open-air infinity pool with vistas of the bay and mountains. The warm water is inviting even if the day is wet and windy, and you might want to order a cocktail and sip it poolside before heading down to Goldfinch Tavern the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, where chef Joe Ritchie sources local organic ingredients to create Northwest-inspired meals (like garlic crusted Alaskan halibut and wagyu eye of ribeye with watercress). This is a Four Seasons, so you can also dine in-suite, or order from room service 24 hours a day.

Who Should Stay

Couples seeking a romantic, resort-type hotel in the heart of Seattle; individuals looking for elegant contemporary style and the highest level of personal service.
