Tucked away in Downtown Seattle in the city's retail and financial center, Hotel Vintage Park is a wonderful historic gem. Washington being home to more than five hundred wineries, it is now the nation's second largest wine producer and is ranked among the world's top wine regions. Kimpton turned the property into a freshly updated hotel with old world charm encompassing the wine theme. As you enter the quaint lobby, you are greeted by a friendly staff full of smiles and eagerness to please. I arrived earlier than expected and not only did they have a room ready, but they decided to upgrade me to a suite since I was a InTouch Kimpton loyalty member.
Upon sitting on the bed, I felt like I was in a little piece of relaxation bliss. The pillows and mattress were extremely comfortable allowing me to anticipate a wonderful night’s sleep. I lounged around for awhile planning out my sightseeing for the evening.
Before venturing out, I decided I needed to freshen up. The bathrooms are fairly standard other than their shampoo/conditioner/soap products which are mounted on the wall. I actually appreciated not having a small re-filled bottle for once and instead an ample amount of wonderful smelling bath products. After this I headed over to see the Chihuly Glass Museum (read about this here!).
After enjoying the wine and company, it was time for dinner, so I chose to eat right there at their award winning restaurant Tulio. My choices of the burrata and beet salad, veal chop, and pistachio semmifreddo were phenomenal. I would rank the flavor combinations and presentations as ranking in the top 20 dishes I have ever had (read more about my experiences at Tulio here).
With my tummy full and after a fantastic rain, I collapsed into my soft bed and fell straight to sleep. I can only imagine if my experiences were so fabulous over one night, the experiences you could have here for a few days could be breathtaking. Make sure that you put the Vintage Park hotel on your list of places to stay when visiting Seattle!
