• Hilton Seattle’s Model Rooms

    Hilton Seattle Model Room Progress Nov 17
    We are preparing for a top-to-bottom hotel renovation scheduled to start in the fall of 2018.  We completed two model rooms which are available to guests already.  #1614 has one king bed and #1610 has two double beds.  Please ask to stay in one of these rooms during your next visit.  We would love to get your opinion to further fine-tune the design. The intent of the model room design is to open up the space in the room and bathroom by removing walls, installing customized furniture to fit the room without taking up unnecessary space, and highlighting the spectacular views through our large bay windows. Improvements include:
    • Removal of separating wall/door between sink and shower to make the bathroom more spacious
    • New floor and wall tile in bathroom
    • New wall vinyl in bathroom
    • New shower head and tub fixtures
    • New bathroom lighting
    • New backlit bathroom mirror
    • New bathroom sliding door with mirror inset
    • Addition of entry light in king room
    • New bedroom furniture including bed, mattress, headboard, nightstands, work desk (on casters in double room), desk chair, and cabinet housing refrigerator, coffee maker, and ice bucket
    • New desk and night stand lamps (all with plenty of USB outlets)
    • New wall mounted 49” LG TV with extremely flexible swivel
    • New roller shades in king room and roller shade/drape combo in double room

  • International Housekeeping Week

    20140918_150633 20140919_075653Every September, we set aside one special week to honor our year-round heroes of Housekeeping. Hotel room attendants often go unnoticed, as they silently care for the millions of travelers who are on the road at any given time. The daily operations of a hotel must go on, especially during holidays or bad weather, and our housekeeping team is on-site to keep guest rooms and the building’s public spaces immaculate. As a thank you for all of their hard work, we hosted a variety of events throughout International Housekeeping Week. Lunches, friendly competition, and extra treats were enjoyed by all! Our Engineering Department assisted in setting up a obstacle course for our room attendants to show their skills in navigating their housekeeping carts, and we shared many laughs with a speed bed-making competition! We are always looking for new ways to honor our team; do you have any ideas for us to celebrate our housekeepers during next year’s recognition week?

  • Must See Seattle Attractions

    Seattle is filled with unique and exciting things to do during your visit. Whether you’re here on business or traveling with friends or family, this gorgeous city offers activities and cultural experiences for everyone. We understand it can be overwhelming at times to plan an itinerary that captures the city’s ‘must-see’ attractions, so the Hilton Seattle would like to help with an overview of the area’s most popular destinations.

    Pike Place Market, located 5 short blocks from our hotel – known as Seattle’s most iconic attraction, the market can easily keep you entertained for hours with tables overflowing with fruits, vegetables, floral arrangements and fresh seafood (don’t forget to watch the famous fish-throwing). Vendors also provide booths full of local art, jewelry, clothing, gifts, and more. In addition to having numerous delicious eateries in one location, you can visit the first Starbucks as well.

    Seattle Waterfront – offering dozens of paths, piers and public spaces, this unique area is the perfect place to take in the local scene. While here, be sure to visit The Great Wheel for a view of the city and surrounding areas from this new Ferris wheel. Additionally, different piers in this area provide access to the Seattle Aquarium, State Ferries, shopping, dining, and other attractions. If you’re in the mood to experience the Seattle seafood scene, you will not find a meal that is fresher than in this area.

    Seattle Center – an epicenter of activities for you to enjoy, consisting of; 11 theatres, 4 museums, 5 gardens, 6 fountains, over 12 restaurants, event area, and skate park. Here, you will find the famous Space Needle, along with the Pacific Science Center, Chihuly Garden and Glass, EMP Museum, KeyArena, the Vera Project, and much more. This is your one-stop destination for a day full of sightseeing.

    Woodinville Wine Country – perhaps one of the area’s best kept secrets, this area is a short drive from downtown and is home to dozens of local wineries. Tour, sample, explore, and dine at small, local vineyards as well as some well-known wineries (Chateau St. Michelle, anyone?).

    Olympic Sculpture Park – open year round (and free!), this is a sight not to be missed. Located in a former industrial site, the grounds are eco-friendly and the Olympic Sculpture Park features work by Mark di Suvero, Alexander Caider, Richard Serra, and many more.

    Aviation – a longtime home to major airline manufacturing, Seattle’s Museum of Flight is not to be missed. Learn about the evolution of flying with many hands-on activities for children. Also, check out the modern technology in the airline industry at the Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour, which is a part of the Boeing manufacturing plant and provides insight into next-generation technology in planes.

    Whatever brings you the area, we hope you have the best experience possible. The Hilton Seattle provides a concierge to help you navigate the city, as well as a car rental desk, should you have the urge to explore outside of downtown. We hope to welcome you soon!
