Hotel 1000: A Review
Hotel 1000 is a fabulous hotel in an amazing location just steps away from the exceptional Seattle waterfront. With restaurants galore and the famous Pike Street Market at your doorstep, there is the great feel of the Pacific Northwest in its décor. The hotel is done in deep earth tones and dark woods with blue splashed throughout to represent the water. There are also beautiful glass bamboo sculptures. The sitting room just next to the lobby is warm and cozy with a lovely fire pit in the center of the room.
The staff at Hotel 1000 can only be described as friendly and helpful, exceptionally efficient. Everyone from the desk manager to the bell hop, the valet parking attendant and delivery services are pleasant and accommodating. This holds especially true for the wait staff at BOKA Kitchen + Bar. Hotel 1000 knows exactly how to balance quality service while ensuring a care free stay. Attention to detail in every area of the property and unobtrusive service sets Hotel 1000 apart.
