Profile Last Updated: August 12, 2008
If diamonds are forever, then four ought to have eternity covered. And that’s pretty much how long you’ll wish you could stay at this 4-diamond boutique hotel in downtown Seattle. Located within walking distance of the Convention Centre, Safeco Field and Pike Place Market and directly across the street from the Koolhaus-designed Seattle Public Library, the Hotel Vintage Park offers a charming respite from the busy city streets and plentiful Seattle attractions.
Impossibly romantic and casually elegant, the Vintage Park is a haven for wine lovers. Acting as a gateway to Washington Wine, each richly decorated guest room is named for a local winery or vineyard. The concierge (a.k.a. the “Grape Goddess”) shares her close relationship with the wineries with guests and can book wine tours to nearby Woodinville wine country or across the mountain to the Yakima Valley. Mind you, once you cozy up in library-inspired lobby for one of the complimentary wine tastings – you may not want to leave. This can work to your advantage as often local wine makers pop by for tastings to pour for the guests. Sidle up to the huge fireplace, mingle with fellow travelers and enjoy the good wine and good company.
Tulio to Die For
If you can resist room service and drag yourself from your comfy bed, there’s exceptional Italian food waiting for you downstairs. Tulio Ristorante picks up the torch and carries the warmth and richness of the hotel lobby into a cozy and well-appointed dining room with lower street views reminiscent of dining in Manhattan. The menu is simple, rustic and fresh. All baked goods are made in-house daily and Chef Walter Pisano makes good use of local ingredients. The renowned sweet potato gnocchi has earned a ferocious fan base with locals and it only takes one bite to understand why. Pasta dishes, seafood and expertly prepared meat dishes round out the menu and of course an extensive and thoughtful wine list accompanies the meal. Treat yourself to a killer dessert and cappuccino and if you can still walk – work some of that meal off with a stroll through historic Pioneer Square just a short scenic walk away.
