Hotel 1000, the city's first condo-hotel hybrid, is a high-tech boutique property where the cars are parked by elevator, the chamber maids do not disturb (rooms are equipped with body heat sensors), and your temperature preferences are recorded for your next stay. Plus there's a spa, a lounge and a happening restaurant to ensure your trip is less business and more pleasure. 1000 W. First Ave., Seattle, www.hotel1000seattle.com
