    Your reservation is one thing you shouldn’t have to stress about. Reschedule or cancel your stay with no penalty up until 24 hours before your trip.

    Hyatt’s Mask Mandate

    Hyatt requires that both guests and employees at all hotels in the U.S. and Canada wear face coverings within indoor public areas like Motif Seattle's hotel lobby, Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails, and other common spaces. Additionally:

    • Guests who are not wearing face coverings indoors will be asked to wear one.

    • We will provide a face mask for you should you forget or misplace yours.

    • Some guests may be exempt from this mandate, including but not limited to guests with medical conditions and children under the age of 2.

    • You may also remove your mask while consuming food or beverages

    Before Your Stay

    The team at Motif Seattle will prepare for the health and safety of your stay before you even check in. This approach includes:

    • Pre-arrival communication letter from the General Manager detailing what to expect from your stay.

    • Thorough sanitation of your guest room with hospital-grade disinfectants, after which no one will enter the room until you do.

    • Lobby signage and social distancing markers on the floor during check-in.

    • All employees are also empowered to remind guests to follow the hotel’s policies and procedures.

    Before Your Stay
    During Your Stay

    We’re taking care of the details so you can focus on exploring Seattle. Here’s how we’re promoting a safe environment in all spaces of our hotel.

    • Hand sanitizer stations at high-touch areas throughout the hotel.

    • Enhanced food safety and hygiene protocols.

    • Social distancing markers in the elevator, only allowing two guests in the elevator at a time. Employees will enforce this policy.

    • Use your Amazon Alexa throughout your stay to request assistance without touching any services. Amazon Alexas in each guest room can be used as the TV remote, to request towels, to call the Front Desk, or to answer any questions about the Local Area.

    During Your Stay
    Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails

    Though some aspects of the Motif Seattle experience have been amended to keep you safe, the fun of Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails endures. Enjoy our new Elevated Afternoon or Happy Hour menus at an intimate table inside or out on our new patio set-up.

    • Frolik now offers digital menus via QR code and appropriately spaced tables.

    • Frolik’s spacious outdoor rooftop/patio is also set up for social distancing.

    • Signage will be placed at the entry and throughout Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails. Frolik provides a digital menu using a QR code.

    Around the Area

    Like cities around the world, Seattle isn’t exactly as it used to be. Some activities and attractions have been modified to ensure they’re safe for all. However, there are still plenty of things to do that will make for a rewarding trip to the Emerald City. We recommend:

    Take a ferry day trip to less populated towns just across the sound.
