Seattle is a gorgeous city. True, it is gray here often. True, it drizzles here often. True, fashion is not the end all here, and true, currently all the teams suck. But, it is home.
Even though I lived in New York for four years and now Las Vegas for 15 years, Seattle is my home. Believe me; I did not move to Las Vegas for its natural beauty.
The best part about Seattle is the quality of the people. They tend to work, smile, and are honest and competent. The next best thing is its natural beauty. I have traveled all over the world and it holds its own with any place.
I remember several years ago driving along the coast from Nice to Monte Carlo and the guide pointing out that the road we were traveling had one of the most beautiful views in the world. My wife and I chuckled because we had a much more spectacular view from our bedroom window.
So, with all that in mind, let’s talk Seattle Hotels. The most elegant and centrally located hotel is the city is the Fairmont Olympic. It has maintained its well deserved number one rating for generations. And its Georgian Room still probably is the most elegant restaurant in town.
This week end I am staying at The Inn at the Market. It is the ultimate small luxury hotel in Seattle. The picture you see are taken from my room (614, a beautiful parlor suite). We are right at the world famous Pike Place market which is exactly where we spent our entire day. Visit them online at www.InnAtTheMarket.com.
