The Charter Hotel Seattle is a Rockbridge and Widewaters Group property, and is operated by Widewaters Hotels. The hotel was handpicked to join the global collection of one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts in the Curio Collection portfolio – all celebrated for their individuality and unique character.
To help guests orient their adventures as they seek local experiences and tailored activities that fuel their curiosity, the hotel features downtown maps with curated itineraries assembled by a collection of Seattle’s most in-the-know tastemakers, including publisher and man-about-town JJ McKay; real estate and restaurant maven Linda Derschang; indie fashion and design-world favorite Moorea Seal; creative director and wine proprietress Suzi Un; and radio host and previous contestant on The Bachelor Molly Mesnick. Whether sipping cabernet while watching a cabaret, imbibing speakeasy gin or venturing underneath the city itself, the suggested spots unveil the curious, the counterculture and the true local community The Charter Hotel Seattle helps guests explore.
The hotel itself rises 16 floors, boasting a glass-adorned modern exterior and chic, well-appointed interiors with natural Northwest touches, and views of Elliott Bay throughout. The 229 guest rooms – including 13 spacious one-bedroom suites – offer modern décor and bedding, and all the perks meant to pamper, including plush bathrobes, 50-inch HD TVs and stunning marble bathrooms. Guests can also enjoy the gym and wellness center, complete with sauna, steam room and cold rain shower, and groups have access to more than 6,000 sq. ft. of private meetings and events space.
On the roof, Fog Room serves as a sultry indoor-outdoor rooftop bar and lounge, perfect to begin or end the night. Perched atop the city, the 120-seat bar and lounge affords unrivaled water and mountain views, overlooking the Seattle Great Wheel, waterway traffic and downtown buzz. Guests can enjoy locally inspired small bites and craft cocktails in the intimate, yet spacious, setting, while taking in live music and other entertainment.
On the ground floor, Patagōn restaurant is poised to artfully fuse Argentine culinary flair with Pacific Northwest flavors – all to a backdrop of earthy woods, twisted metals and rugged, yet refined, ambiance. Anchoring the space is a custom-built open grill, where skilled grilling artisans, known as asadores, use smoke from the embers to cook and flavor meals to perfection. A well-planned wine and libations list, featuring both South American and local selections, rounds out the dining experience and invites guests to linger.
