Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle – Great location for a Mini Break

A short and pleasant drive away, Seattle is a favourite destination for Vancouverites. Seattle has all those things we love, great food, great bars, access to nature, art & cultural, and its a good looking city!

We recently spent the weekend at Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle, on a mini break to Seattle.

Accommodations were pampering, with a room on the 11th floor, next to the Denny Suite. We enjoyed a lovely large room with a huge ¬†marble bath and shower, and a view of the Space Needle, though we didn’t really spend much time in the ¬†spacious room.

The hotel is located in trendy South Lake Union about 15 minute walk to the Public Market, and 10 minute walk to the space needle. There are some hills involved, but we enjoyed that after all our culinary indulgences.
