Hotel 1000 Partners with Argosy Cruises to Offer Seas and Zzzs Cruise Package

SEATTLE (August 21, 2013) – Hotel 1000, downtown Seattle’s premier luxury destination, has partnered with Seattle’s beloved Argosy Cruises to offer the Seas and Zzzs package. This exclusive, new cruise package includes overnight accommodations in a Deluxe City View room, two adult tickets on Argosy’s Locks Cruise Tour, Hotel 1000 binoculars, a $50 food & beverage credit at BOKA restaurant + bar, two specialty cocktails in BOKA, and overnight valet parking for one vehicle.
“We are honored to partner with Argosy Cruises, Seattle’s iconic experiential cruiseline for more than 60 years,” said Denny Fitzpatrick, general manager of Hotel 1000. “As a city surrounded by water, there’s no better way to experience Seattle than by boat. This partnership falls in line with our ongoing commitment to offer our Hotel 1000 guests access to quintessential Seattle experiences during their visit to our city.”
The two-and-a-half hour Argosy Cruises live-narration Locks Tour takes guests through the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of Lake Union via the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. Guests will learn about Seattle’s fishing communities (think Deadliest Catch), the Sleepless in Seattle floating home community, and Gas Works Park.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Hotel 1000 with the Seas and Zzz’s package. This is a terrific option for visitors and locals alike,” said Maureen Black, Director of Marketing for Argosy Cruises.
The “Sees and Zzzs” cruise package starts at $239 and is based on double occupancy. For more information and reservations, visit: or call 206-957-1000.
