Seattle is the home of Nirvana and the grunge era, Jimi Hendrix, and Dave Matthews. Kimpton Palladian Hotel is located in Belltown, right down the block from the historic Moore Theater (the city's oldest operating theater) and less than a mile walk to the Museum of Pop Culture (formerly the Experience Music Project), a massive museum currently running exhibits on Bowie, Hendrix, and guitar history, among others.
The Palladian is home to artistic tributes to local musicians. In the lobby, guests are greeted by, including Jimi Hendrix and Dave Matthews, dressed in regal garb. The same design theme carries to the guest rooms, where , often a musician — and guests can request specific pillows from the front desk. Music fans can choose from the likes of Elvis Presley, David Bowie, or Dave Grohl.
