Lotte Hotel Seattle

A modern Seattle landmark

Lotte Hotel Seattle stands as a study in design. A 1908 beaux arts building — the nation’s oldest — dubbed The Sanctuary serves as downtown hotel’s landmark façade and hosts special events. The rest of the 2020-opened Lotte resides in a gleaming glass tower that stretches 44 stories. Inside, you’ll find acclaimed designer Philippe Starck’s touch in the inviting mid-century modern accommodations. And throughout the property, abstract art and rustic touches (like the 3,000-year-old sequoia tree front desk) pay homage to the Northwest and Seattle’s past as a logging center.

Along with the design, there’s a fine-dining restaurant serving Pacific Northwest cuisine and an ethereal spa with top-notch treatments, but you may be more focused on the commanding views of Elliot Bay and the skyline. And if the city calls, attractions like Pioneer Square, the Sky View Observatory at the Columbia Center and Pike Place Market are within a 15-minute walk.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Several blocks from the water, Lotte affords beautiful views of Elliot Bay and the skyline from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the spacious guest rooms.
  • Take in more bay and city vistas alongside contemporary, seasonal Pacific Northwest fare at the 16th-floor Charlotte Restaurant & Lounge. Savor dishes like Hama Hama oyster ceviche and Oregon lamb, and pair them with cocktails that have an Asian flair.
  • Le SPA de l’hôtel LOTTE’s airy, white-on-white setting will transport you to relaxation. Spend time in the sauna and steam room before getting pampered with Biologique Recherche and Medical Beauty Research treatments.
  • The Sanctuary’s grand ballroom is an unforgettable wedding venue with stained-glass windows, carved woodwork, terra cotta moldings and an impressive pipe organ that spans a wall.
  • Since Lotte is a Korean brand, and the Seattle hotel adopts the form of respectful hospitality that’s found in the Asian country. For example, staff members will address you by name and give a traditional Korean bow, and they will use subtle hand gestures, such as showing direction with both hands, never pointing.

The Rooms

  • The ochre, white and tan accommodations feel residential with wood floors, area rugs, full-length mirrors that rest on the floor, wingback chairs and loads of art.
  • Room amenities in the luxury hotel include a wireless Bose speaker, Nespresso coffeemakers, an electric kettle and a pillow menu.
  • The luxurious bathrooms are bathed in white marble and come with a rain shower and double sinks.
  • Perched on the 15th floor, the more than 2,000-square-foot Presidential Suite offers a bedroom, a living room with a baby grand piano, a dining area for eight and a study.
