I recommend the Alexis Hotel in Seattle - we stayed there a few years ago on the same trip that we stayed at the Wedgewood in Vancouver. The location is great, near the water, the art museum and Pike Place market. They serve complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres in the early evening and have a good restaurant, the Painted Table.

It's part of he Kimpton Group of boutique hotels - they also own the Monaco and the Vintage Park, both further away from the waterfront, but also worth a look.
