The offerings of food and wine packages in the hospitality industry often follows a strict caste system.
Luxury hotels offer their high-paying guests a chef's table dining option or culinary lessons from the hotel's executive chef. Boutique hotels offer wine tastings or sommelier classes. Chain hotels typically offer packages with dining credits at the hotel's mid-level restaurants thrown in as a bonus. And those budget and extended stay/select service hotels offer you an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet of cereal, bagels, fruit and coffee.
But Hyatt's Summerfield Suites is doing something different. The extended-stay brand has just announced its 2nd annual Summer Grilling Social program.

Bumbershoot always features a great music lineup and this year is no exception. Besides a reunion from Tribe Called Quest, there's Kanye West, Spoon, the New Pornographers, some blasts from the past like Blondie, and a great comedy lineup. It takes place over Labor Day weekend, which is not always the easiest time to find a hotel deal. The Summerfield Suites downtown, however, is going for $135 a night.
There's a bit of confusion over this hotel: it used to be a Wyndham, now is part of Hyatt, and has rates that are all over the map depending on where you look. The price on Expedia is the best, with a few options under $150 per night for the 3-day weekend. The screen shot here says there's a charge for wireless, but it looks like from the main page this has been eliminated--quite appropriate in a city that's home to Microsoft, Amazon, and Real Networks.
The hotel is located near the downtown action and is 1.5 miles from where the festival takes place. Just hop on the monorail--no parking hassles. Try to get one of the quieter rooms away from the highway and if you're on a diet, take it easy on the free breakfast. One TripAdvisor reviewer says, "Continental breakfast is the usual caloric cocktail of mini-muffins, microscopic danish and other combinations of air, starch, crystallline sugar and chemicals."
