Your answer is helpful. However, I would appreciate some clarification:

1) Do these spas have swimming pools and saunas?
2) Is there a fixed fee to enter - or do you only have access if you
order a treatment?
3) Are your recommendations based on internet searches - or have you
actually visited these places? If so, how would you describe the
mood/audience in a few words?

Hi kristenson,

I don't believe that there would be a fixed fee to enter, but I have
contacted them and left messages asking this nonetheless.  In American
spas that I have been to, you simply say that you want a massage or
whatever kind of treatment and then you have access to the other
facilities such as saunas. I'm not sure how it is in the UK, but that
is how it usually is in America. They most likely have saunas,
probably not pools, and I'll let you know when they get back to me
what the definitive answers are.

Hotel 1000 does have a sauna.

I also came across the Nordstrom spa that a commenter mentioned but
since you wanted a maximum of 3 I didn't include it-- it wasn't quite
as posh as the others.

I haven't personally been to these spas, but I have found some user
review for you from people who have:

Citysearch Seattle-- Hotel 1000 reviews

Citysearch Seattle-- Jeremy Todd reviews

Etherea Insider Pages

Citysearch Etherea

I hope that helps as far as the atmosphere of these goes.

Although I have not been to Alexis, I have worked with celebs who book
there for the in room spa treatment. Not sure if Etherea Spa has the
same posh factor or not.

There are two locations within minutes from each other. One in
Belltown and the other deeper downtown. You can pick up Aveda products
at the local mall if that is an indication. But you can also pop in
and see which spa suits your preferences since they are not far apart.


Also try Ummelina International Spa (Been there, very quaint, good ambience.)


If you are looking for sauna or pool accomadations try Banya5:


Trendy and public, rather than posh, ironically Seattle is not very
big on aquatics, as you can see not many reviews, but Banya5 looks
like your best bet.

Banya5 is in an isolated location (No window shopping) nevertheless
it's five minutes away in a taxi (suggested) from Belltown or
downtown. $30 day rate with no re-entry privelages. Massage and other
services are listed on the website.

Maybe not so luxurious but definitely upscale are:

Spa Nordstrom (Unsurpassed customer service throughout the store.)

Gene Juarez (Had a nice skin treatment, but I do not recommend them for hair.)

Walk the 10 to 15 minute distance from Belltown to all these locations
(excluding Banya5) for some good sight seeing and shopping. Remember
an umbrella!

Hours, pricing and maps are on all web sites. Most services are
between $60 to  $150. Seattle is mostly per service. Some spas offer
1/2 and full day treatments for a flat rate.
