Hotel Ändra


It should be enough that room service is a direct line to restauranteur Tom Douglas's Lola, a Greek Mediterranean hot spot connected to the lobby. But when it comes to style, Hotel Ändra in Seattle's shoppy Belltown neighborhood trumps anything within a wide radius. The original 1926 bones remain, with Swedish minimalist interiors and rooms (alpaca headboards, toiletries from Stockholm) that are so comfortable, you could spend a weekend there. Add in a staff who "bend over backward" and the "personal living room" vibes in the book-filled lobby, and you have the ultimate city escape. $179/$269; 119 rooms & suites;
