Four Seasons hotel opens in Seattle

Four Seasons opened its newest US hotel in Seattle's busy downtown district last month. The hospitality group, which left Seattle in 2003 when its managemet contract with the nearby Olympic Hotel passed to Fairmont, has now returned with this modern 147-room hotel. The hotel's restaurant, lounge, grand ballroom (with two-story-tall windows) and rooftop infinity pool all enjoy sweeping views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains.The Seattle Art Museum nd the historic Pike Place Market are also within walking distance of the hotel.
Four Seasons has welcomed back its former chef Kerry Sear, who opened his own Seattle-based restaurant nine years ago, to head the Art Restaurant and Lounge. The restaurant will offer over 160 wines by the glass and the menu will be based on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, in keeping with their sta4r chef's "best source" philosophy.
The 557 sq m spa will use indigenous herbs, balsam fir and even coffee (Seattle being the home of Starbucks) in its treatments. Other highlights include a modern art collection with original works.
