Motif Seattle is a chic, upscale boutique hotel in downtown Seattle at 5th avenue between Pike and Union. The architecture and design is heavily inspired by the city’s burgeoning fashion, music and art scenes where color and creativity rule. Motif features ambient in-house music curated by Seattle artists and artwork that is a platform for Motif’s Visiting Artist Program. Every year, the hotel collaborates with a local artist to design a new custom motif and carry it through to our stationery, amenities, key cards, events and more. This downtown Seattle hotel inspired by the Pacific Northwest is steps from shopping, Pike Place Market, the waterfront, monorail, and even Amazon Go’s cashierless store—it is truly in the center of it all.

Seattle is the largest city in both Washington State and the Pacific Northwest region of the US. The beautiful city is surrounded by the Puget Sound and Lake Washington with the stunning Olympic Mountains to the west and the Cascades to the east. Motif Seattle is located in the Central Business District of the Downtown Seattle neighborhood. From this location you'll find yourself ideally located to explore Seattle's top attractions from the great outdoors, fashion, food and drink, music scene and more.
