Seattle’s famous Seafair is approaching, a two month long festival during the months of July and August, with hosted events in the neighborhoods and greater Seattle area including hydroplane racing, Blue Angels air shows over Elliott Bay, Seafair half marathon and triathlon, parades, block parties and more.
This is one of the most popular tourist times for Seattle. Whether a resident or a tourist, if you are looking for a place to stay that is close to some of Seattle’s most notable sites, I recommend the Pan Pacific Hotel.
Tucked away in a modern business center, established in 2006, the Pan Pacific Hotel equals convenience for the guest that wants to fit in as many activities as possible during their stay.
Located blocks away from the Space Needle, this interactive hotel has formed partnerships with the surrounding local businesses which allow guests to enjoy a multitude of additional amenities that other hotels do not provide: including Vida Spa, Azure Salon, Banking, Fine Dining and a Whole Foods market.
Guests are greeted immediately by friendly staff as soon as they enter the spacious two-story lobby that is decorated with local artisans glass blown creations of light fixtures and statement pieces.
The 2nd story of the lobby provides access to the MAC and PC compatible business center.
Off to the left of the lobby, is the Lobby Bar at the Pan Pacific which serves breakfast, lunch, appetizers, dinner and cocktails. The Lobby Bar also provides access to the Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar. Acclaimed chef and owner, John Howie’s menu is inspired by a seafood-centered menu including Pacific Northwest favorites and seasonal preparations from around the world.
The Raw Bar specializes in sushi, sashimi, ceviche, poke, and freshly shucked oysters. Saddle up at the granite top bar to enjoy raw dishes along with a variety of drinks, both classic and unique, a perfect way to cap off a long day. Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar also offers an expansive list for wine lovers giving them the opportunity to try sought-after wines by the pour with the restaurant’s “Enomatic” wine preservation system.
After enjoying Seattle’s sites and a delicious meal, it is time for some rest and relaxation.
