An Urban Oasis
You may be surprised to find an outdoor pool open all year round at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle. Despite a reputation for rain, Seattle doesn’t even make the list of the top 25 wettest cities in the contiguous U.S.
Found four storeys high, the pool is the chic destination for urban sun seekers and urbane water lovers alike. The city’s only infinity-edge hotel pool stretches forth towards the horizon, seemingly spilling into Elliott Bay. A Jacuzzi nestled against a Zen garden offers an enticing, and soothing, alternative oasis.
The pool is heated for year-round comfort. Enjoy invigorating early-morning laps. Or linger at the far end of the pool with arms resting on the vanishing edge. In the near distance you'll find Bainbridge Island, a rustic locale that charms with galleries, cafes and the lush gardens of Bloedel Reserve. Watch a myriad of ferries glide across the shimmering water towards the island and consider making a visit yourself.
As you stretch out on padded comfort, Four Seasons staff members come around, offering complimentary frozen treats, chilled towels and Evian spritzes. During the summer months, the pool deck turns into an outdoor urban retreat. Complete with cabanas, umbrellas and al fresco dining, this resort-style escape in the city offers a poolside bar and grill where you can savor the magnificent views over Elliott Bay.
Getting hungry?...When night falls, the terrace remains a destination. Multidimensional lighting at the pool’s bottom pays homage to the starlit night. Order a Market Mojito, made with fresh fruit from nearby Pike Place Market, or choose an Oregon pinot noir or a Washington cabernet sauvignon practically crafted in our backyard. Then sit around a blazing fireplace and quietly contemplate the views or enjoy lively conversation with your companion.
