Booked Via: Hotel Andra
The Hotel Andra is a boutique hotel located near Seattle Center on the edge of the Belltown neighborhood in downtown Seattle. We’ve also stayed at their sister property in Portland, the Hotel Modera. Both are great places to stay when you’re in either city.
The Hotel Andra is a SLH (Small Luxury Hotel) located in the heart of downtown. It’s in a 10 story refurbished building right on the corner of 4th & Seneca. You’re within a 5 minute walk of shopping at Seattle Center, Pike Place Market and the best of Seattle’s restaurant scene.
We booked a discounted weekend rate of $160 per night via the hotel’s website. Our room was a “luxe suite” located on a corner of the building on the 10th floor. Since the building is over 50 years old, rooms here can be a bit smaller than most. Luckily, our suite was comprised of two rooms. A separate sitting are with full size desk, couch and plenty of room to spread out was separated with double doors from the bedroom area. The bedroom was equipped with a large, king size platform bed and small closet. Bathrooms here are very small in comparison to most hotels. The bathroom is a shower only (albeit oversized), plus toilet and small sink. There is a small shelf to keep your travel items close by. Across from the bathroom is a small dressing area with full size closet and safe. Rooms are furnished with modern european style furniture and styling. Flat panel TVs are in both the sitting room and bedroom area.
Check-in and check out was easy and simple. Valet parking is available for a rather steep $30 per day. It may be cheaper to park in local parking garages that are within a block of the hotel, if you don’t need someone to park your vehicle.
Hotel Andra has Lola, a Tom Douglas restaurant located on-site. Lola serves breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring greek/mediterranean fare. Prices are a bit on the high side, but you can beat the convenience. There’s also an Italian restaurant located right next door and Dahlia Bakery, Dahlia Lounge and Serious Pie are located directly across the street. Other dining options abound within a 5-10 minute walk of the hotel. The Pike Place Market is a short 5 minute walk from the hotel as is the Seattle Center shopping complex.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Andra. You can’t beat it for location and the convenience of being able to walk to most places in the core downtown area of Seattle.
