It’s a hotel at the heart of the city that’s sharing its heart with the city.

The Charter Seattle, Curio Collection by Hilton, is an upscale boutique hotel that opened in August 2018.

Tom Norwalk, president and CEO of Visit Seattle, is one of the hotel’s fans.

“We are pleased to see the opening of several new lifestyle hotels in Seattle, which are bringing uniquely diverse features and experiences for visitors to choose from and striking architecture to our skyline,” Norwalk said. “Among them is The Charter Seattle – the first Curio Collection by Hilton property in Seattle and in Washington state – that distinguishes itself in many ways, including its year-around terrace at the Fog Room with views that overlook Puget Sound and by being in the heart of downtown Seattle near Pike Place Market.”

Located at the corner of Second Avenue and Stewart Street in downtown Seattle, the 229-room hotel, including 13 one-bedroom suites, is in the center of everything.

Although the hotel has only been in operation for a short time, it is already making contributions to its community.

“We did fundraisers for Seattle Children’s hospital around Christmastime,” said Sebastien Pfeiffer, The Charter’s general manager. “We had some custom-made tree ornaments that our guests could get for a donation to the hospital.”

And you can expect more community involvement from this hotel in the future.

“We’re planning a lot of activities such as food drives and an Earth Day event,” Pfeiffer said. “It’s part of our company’s values to support our local communities throughout the year.”

The hotel is also a good fit for a city that is known for its environmental consciousness and concern.

“We have a program at Hilton called Travel with Purpose that encompasses all our sustainability initiatives at the hotel,” Pfeiffer said. “We work to lower our carbon footprint through recycling, composting, energy saving and water conservation.”

And for a view of the water, the Fog Room rooftop lounge is a view that’s too good to pass up. Pfeiffer invited all in the hospitality industry to come enjoy.

“At the Fog Room, we do a 20 percent off special on Sunday nights for anyone in the hospitality industry, the restaurant industry, hotel industry, travel and tourism,” Pfeiffer said. “We want people take some time off on Sundays and experience the Fog Room with their friends or family. It’s a fun thing to do.”
