Looking for romance? Here are 3 wonderful hotels in Seattle, Washington that will provide ambiance, great food, beautiful views, magnificent rooms and romance. My husband and I were invited to Seattle, Washington on a FAM Trip recently and while visiting we had the pleasure of staying at the Monaco Hotel. The Monaco is part of the Kimpton trio of romantic getaway and business hotels in Seattle. After our experience I would recommend any one of the three hotels for a romantic, fun filled, inexpensive romantic getaway.
Alexis Hotel – 1007 First Avenue, Seattle, Washington 98104 (206-624-4844). www.alexishotel.com
Originally built as an office building in 1901 the Alexis was renovated into a hotel in 1980. Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants took over the Alexis in 1982 and in 1996 the adjacent Arlington Building was purchased and this multi-million dollar renovation created the beautiful Alexis Hotel we see today.
With 121 guest rooms the Alexis is a wonderful place for that romantic visit to the Seattle area. With even specialty suites that include romantic wood-burning fireplaces, jetted tubs, media rooms and living areas the Alexis shows us that their rooms were all designed with comfort in mind. Calm colors of blue and beige walls accompanied by red and royal blue décor these rooms make romantic couples comfortable and gives them the feeling of peace while visiting the Alexis.
Room prices begin in the $179.00 with prices changing with seasons. Other amenities for guests are the complimentary evening wine receptions, 4 functional rooms available for business events and social events, complimentary wireless high-speed Internet in guest rooms.
Also at the Alexis guests find the Library Bistro and The Bookstore Bar and Café. Spend an evening enjoying contemporary American food and signature cocktails, in the Library Bistro 1940/1950s décor. Enjoy the menu items created by Executive Chef Tiffany Layco. The Bookstore Bar & Café is located just off the hotel lobby and has a warm romantic ambience. Books line the walls and create a reading room atmosphere.
