Future Travel: Hot Technology Will Change Your Hotel Stay
Hotel 1000, a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts in Seattle, features guest rooms with heat-detecting body sensors that indicate to housekeeping staff when a room is occupied; it’s a kind of automatic, 21st-century “do not disturb” notice (guests can still push a button to activate the electronic “do not disturb” manually). Hotel 1000 also offers a “virtual golf club” — an interactive venue that allows guests to try their skills in virtual recreations of famous courses like Pebble Beach and Pinehurst. An infrared tracking system calculates the velocity, spin and trajectory of the ball.

Drifters: Hotel 1000
Hotel 1000’s byline is “1000 Points of Distinction,” and I have to say, I probably came close to counting 1,000 cool things about this modern downtown luxury property on my recent visit. The location, for one, is fantastic. A few short blocks from Pike Place Market at 1000 First Avenue (few distinction points for memorable address alone), the eight-year-old property is easy walking distance to downtown shopping, Pioneer Square (with a hot restaurant revival happening here), the cruise ship terminal and nearby CenturyLink and Safeco Fields. The welcoming lobby and check in gained a few dozen more distinction points, with friendly and informative front desk and bell staff and a complimentary flute of Champagne for freshly arriving guests. That’s worth a revisit right there—this road weary wine traveler’s favorite kind of welcome.

Corks+Forks: BOKA’s Infusion Cocktails and Ahi Poke

Be it the chemistry lab that is never shown on a winery tour (where a lot of the magic truly happens in a less than immaculate vintage) to the elaborate temperature measurements taken while the beer is boiling as wort to the infusion of herbs, fruits and even random vegetables to spirits – beverage production is science touched by the brilliant light of artistry.
