From our very own Carolyn Faye Fox at The Improper Bostonian:

For more luxurious digs, check in to the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel, which has epitomized San Francisco hospitality since it opened its elegant doors in 1926. In the morning, there’s an exceptional breakfast buffet, including ethereal shrimp dim sum dumplings; at night, the Top of the Mark restaurant offers unrivaled panoramic views of the city, as well as an extensive cocktail list. It’s also convenient. Located atop Nob Hill at the crossing of three cable car lines, the hotel is a six-minute walk to Union Square and just a block from the Grace Cathedral, a landmark famous for its Ghiberti doors, stained glass, AIDS interfaith chapel and labyrinths.

Fairmont Olympic: Seattle, WA

The Fairmont Olympic Hotel has redefined downtown sophistication. Built in 1924, Seattle’s premier hotel offers nearly a century of luxury service standards, while melding classic elegance with mid-century modern room décor. New rooms and corridors, as well as an updated gym, makes this classic a must-experience hotel in Seattle.

From our very own Carolyn Faye Fox at The Improper Boston:

For post-prandial snoozing, there’s the centrally located Fairmont Olympic, a historic 450-room hotel whose down pillows and duvets ensure luxuriously restful sleep. After a swim in the glassed-in rooftop pool or a run on the treadmill, you can indulge in a room-service breakfast poolside wearing a fluffy terry robe and slippers. And if you prefer to dine in the hotel one evening, the on-site Shuckers turns out a fine crab Louie salad, as well as an oyster-palooza of 13 kinds of oysters prepared nine different ways.
