From the moment you drive up to the front of the hotel and step through the enormous revolving door into the fancy lobby, you know that your stay is going to be a good one. Loews Hotel 1000 has so much to offer in even a simple weekend that you can’t miss out on.
Valet parking is available, so you don’t have to worry about finding street parking for your vehicle. Entering the lobby for the first time is a treat, as you get a look at the high ceilings with the narrow glass lights. The front desk is made of marble and the black and white themed decor makes the room look even larger. It’s an appropriate way to open your stay, as this attractive decor is consistent throughout the hotel.
Next to the lobby is the Bell Lounge and golf simulation room, where you can kick back and relax while getting ready to leave, or just have some time to hang around. The lobby has its own wifi, so when you’re not in your room you can still connect to the internet.
Our room was on the 8th floor and overlooked downtown, with a great view of the waterfront, First Avenue, and the historic post office building. With tall windows and a comfy couch adjacent, it’s the perfect place to recline while watching the street below.
The bed is a king sized beauty to sleep on, with a flat screen tv large enough to see from anywhere in the room. Complimentary coffee pods are provided if you need that kick to start your day, and if other snacks tickle your fancy, there is a sidebar of items at extra charge.
The bathroom is not only comforting, but expansive as well, with both a tub and shower. The bath itself is big enough for two, and continuing the fancy theme, fills its water from a spout in the ceiling! If you need a fancier type of bath, the spa is open almost all day, and even offers guests special tub treatments that can be delivered straight to your room for you to soak and enjoy.
In addition to all that, you can’t forget that Loews is located in the heart of downtown Seattle, mere minutes of walking away from some of the Emerald City’s most famous landmarks. When you’re done marveling the hotel’s interior, you’ll want to get outside and engage in the hotels new promo Wander Your Way.

For our Wander Your Way, we decided to Discover the beautiful city of Seattle, and topped it all off with dinner at the All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar, located on the lobby level of the hotel.
In spite of the month being March, we were fortunate to have a bright sunny day that was perfect for walking. Ambling our way downtown, just ten minutes away was the famous Pike Place Market. Then following the waterfront, a few minutes later we found ourselves at the beautiful Olympic Sculpture Park, which contained the best view of the water.
After that, it was just a few minutes up the hill to Queen Anne, where the historic SIFF Uptown Cinema sits, and you can catch a movie. Across the street is the perfect spot for lunch at Dick’s, Seattle’s most famous homegrown burger joint! Be sure to try a milkshake.
A couple blocks past that is the Seattle Center, where we could check out Seattle’s most famous building, the Space Needle (they also just recently renovated!). Adjacent is the Pacific Science Center, which has not just informative scientific exhibits, but also the beautiful Tropical Butterfly House.
As evident from all that can be seen mere minutes from its downtown Seattle location, the opportunities for staying in the Loews Hotel 1000 are practically endless. The next time you pass through or stay in town, be sure to stop by for a stay to remember.
Don’t forget to stop in for dinner or drinks at the All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar. High class, great food, and a central downtown location, combine for one of the top seafood experiences in Seattle.
The Pacific Northwest is known for its cuisine deriving largely from the nearby sea, and the All Water is no exception. But don’t let that deter you if you’re not into seafood, there’s plenty of land-based food and a full bar on hand to satisfy your taste buds.
