13 Coins – A Seattle Tradition
For hotel developers, one of the most important considerations is restaurant choice. While many hotels have their own signature food and beverage brands, others opt to celebrate the local flavor to bring each city’s unique offerings into the guest experience. For the Embassy Suites in Seattle, this means hosting the relocation of an iconic Seattle eatery.
13 Coins has become part of Seattle’s history, with its original location opening in 1967. Residents know the story behind the name, but it can seem unusual for visitors. It comes from a Peruvian story of a suitor who could offer his sweetheart’s father only 13 coins for her hand in marriage. With these, he promised her father that he would always give the woman his love, care, and concern. Thus, 13 coins came to represent these qualities.
For a restaurant, this translates to caring concern for each customer. In addition to its fabulous menu, the restaurant provides iconic seating and an exhibition kitchen for a unique and lively 24-hour culinary experience.
The Seattle tradition continued as 13 Coins opened its new restaurant this January in the 23-story Embassy Suites hotel in the city’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. Because the property is conveniently located near CenturyLink Field and features office development as well as hotel suites, Seahawks fans, office workers, and hotel guests alike will be able to enjoy this iconic taste of Seattle.
