Seattle’s Hotel 1000: A Great Place to Stay

John Scalzi has coined Scalzi’s Law of Hotel Internet Connections:

The more expensive the hotel, the more expensive and/or crappy the Internet connection.

Generally, I would agree with him. However, while recently in Seattle, I stayed at the Hotel 1000, which violated ScaHotel 1000lzi’s rule. The hotel, which is not cheap, but is perfectly in line with similar accommodation’s in the heart of Seattle or any other major city, was one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in.

Internet access was available, without any additional charge, bother wirelessly and via a standard Ethernet connection. Additionally, the room had very nice touch screen VOIP telephones, and a 40″ HD LCD television.

The accommodations were wonderful and the staff was very pleasant and helpful, giving excellant suggestions for dining as well as driving directions.

The desk chair was also quite comfortable, more comfortable than any other such chair that I have encountered in a hotel room.

The only complaint that I have about the hotel (and I admit that this is a very minor complaint) is that the complimentary paper was the USA Today. I generally prefer to receive the local paper, especially when I am in a larger city, rather than the USA Today.

That being said, if the biggest thing I have to complain about is the particular complimentary paper that is offered, I don’t think that I really have anything to complain about.

If you happen to be in Seattle and are looking for accommodations, I can unreservedly suggest the Hotel 1000. It is located at 1000 First Ave. Seattle, WA.
