During the first leg of our time in Seattle, we stayed at Grand Hyatt Seattle’s Emerald Suite, so named not because there is any emerald coloring within the suite, but rather as it’s located within the Emerald City, aka Seattle! This spacious, 1,000 ft² suite on the upper floors of the hotel has stunning views of Puget Sound, despite being about 5 blocks back from the water. We loved our stay, and how conveniently close to downtown Seattle it was. From the breathtaking views visible from the Emerald Suite and the ample in-room amenities to the comfort and convenience of the hotel itself, Grand Hyatt Seattle’s Emerald Suite is a one of a kind treat in the Emerald City.

Sustainability, and supporting local growers is something we’ve been trying to do more often. The concept of honoring the Earth, one another, and becoming more attuned to the unique flavors, textures, colors, and fragrances of each local season through food is precisely what Aerlume (pronounced like heirloom) is all about. Located between Bell Harbor Marina and the famous Pike Place Market, overlooking beautiful Puget Sound, Aerulume had some of the most flavorful, inspired food we’ve ever encountered in the Pacific Northwest.
