New boutique hotel in Seattle pays homage to city entrepreneur with ‘snazzy’ restaurant


A new boutique hotel in Seattle has opened, with a restaurant that pays homage to one the city’s influential entrepreneurs.

The new State Hotel, close to Pike Place Market, comprises 91 bedrooms and a ‘snazzy’ bar and restaurant which is named Ben Paris after the Seattle entrepreneur and restaurateur who once owned this building.

A multi-million dollar renovation has transformed the 1904 Eitel building into the new hotel, for which Patrick Foley is one of the founders.

The lobby lounge sports long dark couches, low bookshelves and a wall lined with illuminated doorknobs. 

Artist Kate Blairstone’s Craftsman-style wallpaper lines the landings with looks inspired by the city’s produce, flowers and seafood, and her portraits of Seattle luminaries hang in the bedrooms.
