Debuting in the April issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine, the 2nd Annual “Stay List” features hotels based on the key criteria of engagement with the local community, subscription to sustainable practices and the overall ability to capture the spirit of its setting. Hotel 1000 inspired National Geographic Traveler by its high-tech amenities, unique architecture, authentic Northwest cuisine and captivating setting.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of only 129 hotels on this prestigious list,” said Denny Fitzpatrick, general manager, Hotel 1000.

“The hotels on our Stay List 2009 don’t just reflect their surroundings—they help define them,” says National Geographic Traveler Senior Editor Sheila Feldman Buckmaster. “What they all have in common is a transcendent vision that goes beyond traditional hotel-keeping. This mindset is what gives these hotels their sense of place. Make no mistake: you’ll sense the vibe at once. And after your stay, you’ll leave with the kind of insight only soulful places can provide.”
