A NEW VINTAGE UNCORKED IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE
Kimpton's Hotel Vintage Park has transformed into the Hotel Vintage, with a multi-million dollar renovation and top-to-bottom redesign. Each of the 125 newly re-imagined guest rooms are named for a Washington winery, highlighting a strong partnership with local vintners who pour nightly at the hotel's hosted wine reception.
"We couldn't be more proud to raise a glass to this transformation," said Tom Waithe, regional director of operations for Kimpton Hotels of the Pacific Northwest. Seattle-based Dawson Design Associates transformed the hotel, using the European history of wine as inspiration and blending it with a casual, Northwest look and feel. The guestrooms embody the spirit of wine with rich colors and textures, seen in a vibrant purple couch and drapery that gives a nod to climbing vines.
More than 88,000 recycled wine corks in a variety of colors make up one of a kind cork board art behind each guestroom bed. To satisfy the most technically advanced guests, each room also houses an Obsess system, allowing movies, music, and more to go from a smartphone right to the room's LCD TV.
