A Magical Night (and Morning) with Hotel 1000

We had the amazing opportunity this past month to be invited to stay another night with Hotel 1000 and cover an event that was going on in Seattle. We were very pleased (okay, ecstatic) to find out that the event was actually the Paul McCartney concert at SafeCo Field. There was definitely no possible way we could turn down their offer, so we planned and...

On our last trip to Seattle, we were finally able to make it to the lovely Oddfellows Cafe for charcuterie, lattes and people watching...

Sir Paul McCartney

This isn't our usual content. I guess that's because it's not everyday that you get to see Sir Paul McCartney in concert. It's been a dream of mine since I was a kid to see one, if not all of the remaining Beatles, live in concert. Thanks to Hotel 1000, that dream has become a reality. My Dad would play Beatles records in his garage while...

Molly Moon’s Handmade Ice Cream

If you know Cory and me, you know we are ice cream enthusiasts (we literally live a 3 minute walk from our favorite, Salt & Straw). We have made the trip to Seattle a few times but have never been able to make it to Molly Moon's until this last trip. We were actually walking around the neighborhood taking photographs when I heard, "Excuse me,...

Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market is a creative and culinary hub for Seattle, one that when you visit you know you'll end up there at one point in your trip. Since we were just a short walk down the street from it, we toured it twice during our two day stay in the city.  There are plenty of mainstays within the market, like Rachel the giant bronze piggy...

Top Pot Doughnuts

Jade has been telling me for months that we have to go and check out Top Pot Doughnuts in Seattle the next time we are there. I was 100% on board with this idea, since living in Portland, we have quite a few doughnut shops around and I love fried dough. I've had the opportunity to try quite a few different types of doughnuts, so...

Ferris Wheel Views

The last time we went to Seattle in 2008 we had a wonderful time, but we didn't get to see the city like we saw it when riding the Seattle Great Wheel. As soon as I peered out the window in our room at Hotel 1000 and spotted it, I knew we had to find a way to get over there for a ride. Luckily...

Volunteer Park Conservatory

Seattle is one of our favorite big cities to visit, but there is so much to do there, it's hard to experience everything in a short trip. Before leaving this time, we knew there were a couple places we had to visit. One of those places was the Volunteer Park Conservatory, a 5-chambered greenhouse with some of the most amazing and beautiful plant life in...

The Hotel 1000 Experience

One of our first trips together when we were first dating was to Seattle and we fell in love with everything about it; the beauty of the city, the community in Pike Place Market, all of the surrounding boroughs filled with what seems like endless treasures of restaurants and shops, and Puget Sound that sprawls the West docks. We wanted to show just how much...
