Pineapple Hospitality was launched in March 2011 to manage Columbia West's four Seattle WA boutique hotels: The Maxwell Hotel, Hotel FIVE, Watertown Hotel and University Inn. All four properties feature strategic locations within the greater Seattle area. Hotel FIVE is located in the heart of downtown, The Maxwell Hotel is perfectly situated at the base of Queen Anne at The Seattle Center and both Watertown Hotel and University Inn are in the University District, just blocks from the University of Washington campus and a free shuttle ride to downtown Seattle attractions.
The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries all over the world.
During early Colonial days in the United States, families would set a fresh pineapple in the center of the table as a colorful centerpiece of the festive meal, especially when visitors joined them in celebration. This symbolized the utmost in welcome and hospitality to the visitor, and the fruit would be served as a special desert after the meal.
We chose the pineapple as our logo because it represents the warm, genuine hospitality that Pineapple Hospitality strives to provide for every guest, on every stay, at each of our properties. Join us daily in the hotel lobby from 3-7pm for our signature pineapple cupcakes and Starbuck's coffee.
