The Grand Hyatt Seattle is right on the ever-popular Pine Street, in the heart of the cultural and financial district of the city.

An example of elegant contemporary architecture, the Grand Hyatt acknowledges the natural woods and native stones of the area to reflect the abundance beauty of the North West.

Within walking distance to the famous Pike Market, where one can find the freshest food in the city and local art, the hotel is also close to the Washington Trade and Convention Centre, perfect for business travelers who want to step away during the lunch hour for a quick workout in the state-of-the-art gym.

The rooms provide a spectacular view of Seattle and also boast an impressive view of the harbor. You can even catch a glimpse of the Puget Sound.

Of course, true to the Hyatt’s tradition of excellent quality, you won’t feel like getting out of the comfortable beds. It doesn’t help matters that everything in your room is practically at your finger tips, allowing you to basically operate from bed if you feel like it.

The living spaces in the rooms are extremely comfortable. That and the rooms’ amenities and earthy-tone décor is enough to make anyone wish they actually lived at the hotel!

Seattle Hotels: The Grand HyattThe culinary options at this luxury Seattle hotel will appeal to any palate and any level of appetite. Grab a quick bite at the famous Seattle coffee shop, Starbucks, or indulge in a top notch steak.

I would recommend taking a short stroll to this hotel’s sister property, Hyatt at Olive 8, where you’ll find the Urbane restaurant. It has a splendid bar, perfect for starting off the night. Also the restaurant uses only local and organic produce in its meals. Every ingredient is from a fifty mile radius, a respect to the local community and regard to the Washingtonian lifestyle.

I particularly enjoyed the rack of lamb. It just melts in your mouth and has a hint of mint and spiciness. It’s a dish that you do not want to miss at all!

Come to Seattle and experience the splendors of the Grand Hyatt. I can promise you won’t regret it.
