Readers Vote: Seattle's 10 Best Hotel Restaurants

View as Map

On Friday, an accommodating question was posed: What is Seattle's best hotel restaurant? More than 50 responses flooded the tipline and comments, proving that this city isn't as destitute for good hotel food as some declare.

While it's questionable how many of those hotel restaurants are great (some say none), what's not up for debate is that landing in some of them for a meal or two isn't the worst thing ever. In fact, it can be quite enjoyable.

Here now is a crowd-sourced, ranked map of the city's top 10 hotel restaurants as voted by readers. Is your favorite not listed? Feel free to leave your baggage in the comments. Also feel free to check in with sister site Curbed Seattle for the 38 Essential Seattle Area Hotels.


Honorable Mention: BOKA, Marché, The Dining Room at Salish Lodge, Sazerac, Seastar, TRACE, Urbane. Read More

This Tom Douglas restaurant inside Hotel Andra garnered the most votes, with readers saying such nice things like, "their donuts and pita with tzatziki spread are delightful," "great concept and service.

In second place is this lovely Italian nook inside Hotel Vintage Park. Readers love it for not just the solid Italian food, but also the "great wine and a funky wine-themed hotel. What's not to love?" Other votes for Tulio "for being a Seattle institution" and "I always take visitors there for a memorable (and delicious) meal while in town." But mostly readers seem to love Tulio for the "great food, excellent service and it doesn't feel like a hotel restaurant."

Third place goes to this stalwart Mediterranean-inspired restaurant inside the Mayflower Park Hotel. Comments ranged from "a cool historic hotel with great Mediterranean cuisine along with a fab lounge" to "the best Mediterranean spot downtown," "get the paella, the liquid chocolate cake, and you just can't beat the quality of service," and "the staff are friendly, professional and the food is amazing. I've been there many times and never been disappointed." There you have it.

ART ties with Six Seven for the fourth place spot on this list. Inside the Four Seasons Hotel, ART seems to be the collective place for out of towners for the great view, higher end food and "top notch interior design" ART also gets props for its bar and "locally sourced creations for those of us who cried when Kerry Sear's Cascadia closed."

It's mainly the view that lands this spot inside the Edgewater Hotel on the list. But some readers also give a nod to the "consistent quality food," which, according to one industry type, "is really surprisingly good."

6. Georgian Room

411 University St
Seattle, WA 98101
(206) 621-1700

The Georgian inside the Fairmont Hotel gets the fifth slot on this list simply because it's "perfect for over-the-top indulgence and special occasions." Also, "one of the few restaurants left where you can always have souffle for dessert." A handful of old school city dwellers evidently still like to have their breakfast here, too.

7. Copperleaf Restaurant at Cedarbrook Lodge

18525 36th Ave S
Seattle, WA 98188
(206) 214-4282
Visit Website
Sixth place is a tie between two restaurants that aren't even technically in Seattle, but collected enough votes to land them on this list: Copperleaf and Trellis. Located inside Cedarbrook Lodge, Copperleaf got its votes purely for the food, described more than once as "creative." The staff also gets a shout out for their professionalism and attentiveness.

8. Trellis

220 Kirkland Ave
Kirkland, WA 98033
(425) 284-5900

Passionate pleas for this restaurant inside the Kirkland Heathman: "I'd be hard-pressed to name any other restaurant that does as fantastic a job as Trellis under the leadership of Brian Scheehser," and "Fabulous food using local (sometimes from chef's uber-local farm) products. And reasonably priced."

Seventh place is a tie between the Hunt Club and this spot, tucked next to the Inn at the Market. Is it technically a hotel restaurant? That's up for debate, but regardless, it's a clandestine place worthy of inclusion on this list according to readers like this one who tout it as, "Very unusual for a hotel restaurant. Fist Korean restaurant attached to a hotel in US. I loved their unique food and hidden concept."

10. The Hunt Club

900 Madison St
Seattle, WA 98104
(206) 343-6156

The Hunt Club at the Sorrento Hotel still has a classic warm wood-trimmed spot in the heart of several readers, who still talk about the place with a seeming flicker in their eyes. Comments include: "I adore that hotel, and the Hunt Club provides an elegant atmosphere for an evening of fine dining," and "Nice job with the classics and in a very classic setting."
