A 12-story luxury hotel, Thompson Seattle features 158 guest rooms, eight corner studios and two suites, as well as Puget Sound and Olympic Mountain views. The hotel also includes the full-service restaurant, Scout; the rooftop bar and lounge, The Nest; business and fitness centers; and more than 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space. Guests are treated to complimentary Wi-Fi, private car and limousine service, and concierge services.

Meeting rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows can accommodate up to 150 guests, while the rooftop lounge can accommodate up to 250. Scout includes The Cabin, a semiprivate, open-air dining area which comfortably seats groups of up to 20.  

The Northwest boasts a rich Native American history. From Alaska to Oregon, the nations and tribes native to our region are evident throughout our communities—from the art displayed in our museums, parks and neighborhoods to the names of local cities and destinations, such as Chelan, Klamath Falls, Denali, Nez Perce and Kelowna. Celebrate this cultural bounty by planning an event at a venue that honors the Northwest’s roots. Here are just a few to consider for your next gathering.
