“The intent was to create a sense of going to visit your favorite relative in Seattle,” says Palisociety founder and CEO Avi Brosh about his firm’s first Pacific Northwest hotel, which opened earlier this year. “We were inspired by the idea of guest rooms that felt like spare rooms in someone’s home.”
Decorated with floral headboards, mossy green walls, and desks inspired by old steam trunks, the 96-room Palihotel Seattle is the eclectic cousin of the firm’s Old Hollywood–inspired Los Angeles properties. Taking up residence in the brick building that once housed the turn-of-the-century Colonnade Hotel, this downtown location hosts vinyl-spinning DJs (or, as Brosh calls them, “guest selectors”) in the lobby lounge every Saturday night, and it sits just steps from the historic Pike Place Market. The hotel also boasts the second outpost of the southern-inspired eatery, The Hart and The Hunter.
Over the summer, Swedish outerwear brand Fjällräven opened its first Seattle location next door to the hotel. According to Brosh, additional retail will arrive later this year. We can’t wait.
