Seattle’s Hotel Ändra delivers a haven from the elements. In the lobby, recycled-wood coffee tables and custom settees are strategically placed around a fireplace, and maple bookshelves and a plasma TV serve as accents. In the kitchen, celebrated chef Tom Douglas runs Lola, merging Greek and Pacific Northwest cuisines. Spacious guestrooms, originally built as apartments in 1926, with nicely updated vintage baths, start at $169. (800) 448-8601,
