Ironically it wasn’t the first time a bathtub and a bath menu conspired to cinch my travel plans (see Calistoga), but this bubbly invitation, this one was taking me all the way to Seattle. It was Niles (Crane, natch) who piqued my interest in my 20’s, then that Tom Hanks movie coupled with Meredith and Christina in my 30’s, followed by the eclectic concentration of environmental enthusiasts, indie artistry and admittedly, Seattle’s Best Coffee (where’d they go?), that accelerated the appeal. So, when Seattle’s Hotel 1000 launched its Draw Me a Bath menu, I was all in. Run the hot.

If those lockdown years taught us anything, it was to make the best of where we are, however we can, for as long as we can. So, the idea that we can arrive inside a bustling city with a wooden bath bridge complete with amenities and aromatherapeutic treats, these are lessons meant for the long haul. And after.

Dinner is a great place to start. All Water Seafood and Oyster Bar, their on-property restaurant has excellent provisions and service, all celebrating the local bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Ask for Eric.

Up in the exceptionally appointed room, the Draw Me a Bath menu maximizes the indulgent element of luxuriating away from home, by introducing four tubbale tactics of unwind.

The Destress Mind Bath ($75) includes a rosemary-spearmint bathwater fizzer, water softened with coconut oil and infused with refined CBD in full spectrum Hi-Bio Hemp Oil, an eye or face mask, a dry brush (so good for pre-bath exfoliating), complete with a pot of mint tea. This treatment is intended to sooth a jet lagged body or refresh one after a day of mountainous activity.

The Romance and Rejuvenation Bath ($175) includes a bottle of wine, Hotel 1000 chocolates, Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Milk Bath Soak (so good), and Pike Place Market rose petals.

The appropriately entitled Emerald City Bath ($200) is a green hued homage to its namesake locale. Complete with a locally procured Pacific Northwest smorgasbord of Buddha Bath Seattle Rain scented bath bubbles, a CBD Breathe Bath Bomb, a natural hemp exfoliator sponge, Herbivore Botanicals Emerald Oil, an emerald healing stone, and a jade face roller. Indulgence for now, indulgence for later.

And finally, the Bath Worth $1000 ($1000). They’re not going to call it that unless it’s true. This one comes with a bottle of Dom Perignon brut Champagne 2010, caviar with all the accoutrements, French Girl Rose Sea Soak, French Girl Rose Body Polish (this combo is a killer), fresh florals from Pike Place Market, a silk sleep mask, a signature Diptyque candle (timeless), a lush Hotel 1000 robe, and a personal bath butler. Yes my friends, this is a bath for the ages.

The waterfalls from the ceiling and the fragrance perfumes the room. Dry off with a magnificently plush Frette robe. And do it over and over.

Seattle is such a spectacular city, a synergy that vibrates from the streets to the Sound. To wind down the day with this, it is so nice. The menu in its entirety is available daily, 9am to 9pm: a blissful dyad of decadence between the bubbles and the amenities. It is an unabashed indulgence, an instauration we maybe only allow ourselves when vacationing, and if that is the case, please do. Travel is tricky. Our time is precious. May our baths reflect it.

  1. I can’t believe you got to see a snowy Seattle! So magical! And those baths….I’d like to go there just for that

  2. Sounds like a wonderful experience. The hotel, the city; Seattle, can’t ask for more. Hope you had a chance to visit my favorite coffee shop…Raison d’etre.

    • No we did not! We visited the first AND second Starbucks, because when in Seattle, but missed this alleged Raison d’etre. Shameful. Back we go.

    • I think I’m going to start calling your column “Travel the Full Sensory Experience”! With bath menus, pillow menus, restaurant menus, and your own menus of delights, you’ve woven together a blog that addresses full sensory needs and desires in every travel experience! I think I will just follow you where you go, as your sensibilities and mine seem to have something in common!

  3. Sounds so incredible. Love the idea of a bath menu, and lucky you got to try them all!! Sounds like utter bliss. Thank you for detailing your experience so beautifully!

  4. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to Seattle. Bring on the cold … and milk baths! Cleopatra had it right with those.😍

  5. I assume the bath experiences are IN your hotel
    room? Looks divine. I’d take a bath and some snow right about now…

    • They ARE, but that was my question too! You arrive in your room, and all the products are all lined up in wood bridge above the tub. The part I loved is that it lasted several Seattle baths, then we brought the loot back home with us, and the vacating continues at home.

  6. I’ve been to Seattle many times to visit my son and his family. On my next trip, I think we’ll stay at Hotel 1000 and let them visit me – but first, they’ll have to drag me out of the bath.

  7. I love this city. What a great location for an amazing experience. This type of luxury isn’t something that jumps to the forefront when thinking of Seatle. Nice Find!

  8. This place looks absolutely amazing! I have never been to Seattle but I definitely know where I will stay when I go! The bath sounds wonderful.. thank you!!

  9. I love Seattle and the hotel location couldn’t be more perfect. Thanks, as always, for the terrific recommendations.

  10. We’d never been to Seattle as a family and while I wasn’t sure what to expect, the Hotel 1000 was a wonderful surprise. The location was actually quite close to so much within walking distance and public transportation (Seattle Great Wheel, Pier 57/Miners Landing, Pike Place Market, restaurants, etc.), that we only had to use the car because it was pretty cold for us Californians.

    The room itself was much bigger than I would have expected and while I was only able to partake in a small portion of the bath amenities Jolie wrote about, the room was well-appointed, modern, and welcoming. Hotel 1000 is definitely worth considering on your next trip (business or leisure).

  11. I’m there! Visiting Seattle in April and hadn’t booked a hotel yet. Definitely getting the bath experience. Thanks for pointing this one out.

  12. There was a time, about 18 years ago, I was meant to move to Seattle with my then-boyfriend. Pre-LA. Juuuuust before the big move from my humble Wisconsin home, he left Microsoft and joined Paramount, and thus, I’ve never been the PNW gal I’ve always imagined I would be. LA is home now, but travel to Seattle and her surrounding nabes I will forever to and fro. Also, one of each on the menu please, bathtender.

  13. Haven’t been to Seattle in a long time but I’m now looking forward to checking this out on our next trip! It looks perfect.

  14. I LOVE that there is a specific experience attached to this hotel! And that the experience is in your room! Alerting all my friends…

  15. I can confirm that the amenities in this bath were amazing! (I got a second use out of all of them). It all felt very luxurious and our room always smelled great. We’re still using the products at home and I have to admit I’ve stolen quite a few of them.
