Welcome to Palihotel Seattle, Palisociety's first property outside LA, in a beautifully preserved historic building situated on a prime downtown corner.

Sink into the serene green color scheme...and look at that view!

Seattle's grey days are the perfect reason to stay in bed.

Warm plaid & leather textures and a dark color palate combine to create a sort of luxe prep school dorm vibe.

Loving the lo-fi phone and Pali's branded scent in a custom leather pouch...a clever take-home touch.

Never one to forego a hotel robe mirror selfie moment.

P is for pretty please let me stay in pajamas.

The Hart & The Hunter. Try the Local Mushroom Tartine and don't say no to a serving (or two) of their "world famous" biscuits.

The cute as a button coffee window.

The eclectic living area adjacent to the lobby is anchored by an overscale round mirror and a cozy fireplace; with shelves full of cool flea market finds, playful art, and lots of thoughtfully mismatched seating.

Put your feet up and make yourself at home.

Wes Anderson worthy lobby moment.

Slow clap for this don't stop get it get it approach to room service.

Highs & Lows

  • Palihotel's style fits so perfectly with the Seattle vibe you'd almost think the brand originated here. It adds a welcome dash of cool to the neighborhood.

  • A prime location for first time visitors or regulars, steps from the Pike Place Market and waterfront, Seattle Art Museum and walkable to popular shopping neighborhoods and music venues.

  • Common spaces and staff are equally warm & inviting, plenty of couches and nooks to sink into, amidst walls of books, potted plants and found objects that make you feel more like you're in the home of a well-traveled friend than a hotel.

  • Early morning construction in the neighborhood means you might want to sacrifice picturesque street-facing views for a quieter interior room if you like to sleep in.

  • No gym means you'll have to take to the city's hilly streets to get your workout in, but there are a lot of popular fitness studios nearby too.
