Fall is just around the corner and that means cooler temperatures and shorter days—mirroring the many Scandinavian countries. By now, you’ve probably heard of the Scandinavian tradition of “hygge,” a concept that emphasizes coziness and contentment. It’s also what’s needed to temper Seattle’s fall and winter months.
While hygge is not just about making sure you have certain elements in your surroundings, hygge is also cultivated through relaxation, friendship, laughter, and of course, seasonal food and drink. To truly experience hygge one must be in the present moment. Whether you’re enjoying the company of friends or getting some much-needed solitude, there is no agenda. Take the time to revel in the opportunity to slow down and relax.
Here at Hotel Ändra, we strive to cultivate a feeling of hygge through our Scandinavian inspired décor. Sit by the lobby fireplace and enjoy our warm, minimalist atmosphere. Relax in luxurious European lounge chairs with gorgeous textures of luscious velvets, cozy wools and soft linens. Discover Swedish cottage influences of light wood, cane, stone, and glass tiling throughout our newly refreshed space.
Whether you’re booking with us for business or leisure, our Scandinavian boutique hotel is sure to transport you from bustling downtown Seattle to a warm hygge environment. Why not try to emulate the happiest region in the world? We know Hotel Ändra will inspire happiness and hygge during your stay!
