Hotel Review: Grand Hyatt Seattle

Being Portland’s big sister, I always wondered if I would move to Seattle when Portland felt too small or if I needed a new backcountry wilderness to discover.  I have spent time exploring the San Juan Islands, Olympic Peninsula, and British Columbia and usually pass through Seattle but I had not spent much time exploring its downtown area until now.  Recently I treated myself to a ‘citycation’ in downtown Seattle and even took myself on a couple of dates. I had the opportunity to stay at the Grand Hyatt Seattle and thought I would share my review for anyone evaluating hotels in the Seattle-metro.

Sleep at Grand Hyatt Seattle

I slept in a bay view king room on the 28th floor.  Elevated in the top four floors, my view was breathtaking.  I spent a lot of time thinking while staring out of my floor-to-ceiling window at the cityscape and water views from both my bed and the nice sofa chair.  I felt clarity as I relaxed in my room.  The room was more spacious than I am accustomed to as well.  (I had just returned from a trip to New York where my room was only about the size of a shoebox…my typical room size when on a business trip.) I had plenty of room for my carry-on suitcase to explode and not feel messy.  One of my favorite parts of the room was a sit-down vanity section where I could curl my hair at leisure.  The bathroom was just as spacious as the room with a spa bath and separate glass-enclosed shower.  Last, I want to mention that sleep is VERY important to me and my room had an electronic blackout drape that blocked out all city lights for a pure uninterrupted night of sleep.  Possibly my favorite in-room amenity.

Eat at Grand Hyatt Seattle

The hotel has a few different dining outlets including Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Starbucks and NYC Deli located off the lobby.  Although, I have heard amazing things about Ruth Chris steaks, being a pescatarian I decided to go offsite for my dinners and had so many great options walking distance from the Grand Hyatt Seattle.  I did however; indulge in two in-room dining breakfast-in-bed experiences at the hotel.  Both were delicious and incredibly timely showing up in my room within 20 minutes after hanging up the phone.  I ordered avocado toast one morning and a waffle with berries and a side of hash browns the following morning. The only thing I look back on and regret was not trying the crab benedict…guess it’s another reason to go back!

Spa at Grand Hyatt Seattle

When you aren’t busy treating yourself to a relaxing bath in the ginormous king room spa tub it might be nice to unwind with a massage or spa treatment at Elaia Spa.   Located just one block away at the LEED-certified Hyatt Olive 8, Elaia Spa offers an eco-friendly spa menu.  Organic and locally sourced products go a LONG way for me in terms of making a decision on where to go for a spa treatment and what I want lathered on my body.  I had a 60-minute relaxation massage and was delightfully surprised when my professional massage therapist told me the ONLY product she was going to be using for my massage was organic olive oil.  How wonderful is that?!  No need for chemical derived lotions and potions.  My skin felt amazing after the massage.  My massage was also unique and included a fair amount of stretching which I appreciated after a day of hustling around taking photos downtown.

Nearby Grand Hyatt Seattle

I love taking photos so one of the bestselling points for me was the Grand Hyatt Seattle central downtown location.  To direct my photo opportunities I used the ‘Guide to Iconic Seattle Photo Spots – Do206’ blog post and was excited to see that many of the spots on the map were within 15 minutes walking distance from the hotel.  Whether you want to check out Pike’s Place Market, the original Starbucks, Pier 66, Seattle Public Library or the Gum Wall, it’s all at your fingertips.  The hotel is also within a stone’s throw to Paramount Theater, great downtown shopping outlets (including the Nordstrom Flagship Store) and plenty of incredible restaurants including The Pink Door, which is NOW one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Seattle.  I was also introduced to a nearby taco joint that served up delicious vegan tacos called El Borracho.

In summary, I would recommend the Grand Hyatt Seattle for anyone wanting a spacious room with a waterfront view that is centrally located downtown.   My stay provided me the rare opportunity to focus on spending some time with none other than myself, which I desperately needed.  The holistic spa treatment and breakfast in bed was a real treat and I hope to incorporate these luxuries in my life more frequently.

    The in-room dining options look great. I’m al about starting my day with hashbrowns when traveling. It gives me more fuel to make it to fun places like Pike’s Place Market! Great option for our next Seattle trip!

    I’ve stayed here! You do a great job of showing how the Grand Hyatt is also an excellent place for a business traveler, who wants a nice hotel with easy access to the fun parts of Seattle when the workday is done.

    We’ve been talking about taking a long weekend trip up there and definitely want to book a hotel that is centrally located…thanks for the Grand Hyatt info Bre, I’ll be checking it out. And those waffles!…I’ll have those too please! (I swear I start to salivate whenever you post food photos). Glad to hear you loved The Pink Door, is my most favorite spot to eat in Seattle!

  15. May 22, 2019 / 9:18 pm

    I remember watching your Instagram stories while you were in Seattle! Looks like a fun and relaxing trip. I’ve been thinking of going on a weekend getaway to Seattle and will have to keep the Hyatt in mind!

    Crab Benedict for sure…..with a side of avocado toast! Sounds like a great time was had by a party of one. Rest, rejuvenation and breakfast in bed for the win.

    • Brewildered
      May 24, 2019 / 3:55 pm

      haha You always know what to order! Let’s go back and order that ASAP.

  17. May 25, 2019 / 4:23 pm

    What an amazing view and that breakfast in bed… mmm! Last time I stayed in Seattle the hotel was downtown, but it was super sketchy… I hope to stay somewhere more like this next time!

    • Brewildered
      May 28, 2019 / 4:24 pm

      Yeah, downtown Seattle definitely has its sketchy parts but I love being so close to Pikes Place!
