My husband Tod and I took an impromptu getaway weekend to Seattle for some much needed R & R after my big Fraser Valley Twestival event (a ton of work but SO worth it!)
Tod wanted to surprise me so he contacted my good friend and collegue Debra Trappen - Director of Career Development at Coldwell Banker Baine/Seal who shares my appetite for all things glorious! She steered us to gorgeous, lavish boutique Hotel 1000, and the rest as they say, is History!
I felt I had to write this post because when service is so fabulous by absolutely EVERY single staff member from bell hop to front desk to hostess/waitress to spa staff...there must be something pretty special about the place! Didn't hurt that we got the Presidential suite either! (Other important people like us who've stayed in our room: Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne; Alecia Keys; Brittany Spears)

I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves:

Tod and I didn't leave the hotel the ENTIRE time we were there....Didn't have to because Hotel 1000 also has a fabulous restaurant Boka Kitchen & Bar with the most delicious treats! Everything custom made ~ their chef was AMAZING!

We LOVED our waitress Lauren who we discovered is also an avid blogger for Fashion Network Seattle and tweets @seafashiontv! Totally adorable and took fabulous care of us AND RAVED about working at the hotel! You can tell that the hotel totally takes care of their staff and have developed a culture that the employees really enjoy! That always impresses me!

This is where Hotel 1000 REALLY shines! It was in all the little details! The Manager had to skip out on Tod when he was in the golf club (YES there's a Golf club in the hotel and he was just fine and had a blast while I was in the spa!) and so when we arrived back in our room we had a little gift waiting for us:
Finally as we departed my 'home' (hehe) the valet brought our car around and we found these:
I hated to say goodbye... as we left our beautiful home away from home, the sad little raindrops hit our windshield as if to say - the lovely dream is over....But I'll be BACK! Thank you to all the staff who made our stay unbelievably indulgent! :)
