For the past week, I got to experience living at the luxurious Two Lincoln Tower in Bellevue, WA. These stunning apartments are perfect for those who enjoy the flexibility of renting, but still desire a spacious home with five-star amenities and services.
Two Lincoln Tower is located in the heart of downtown Bellevue, right on top of the W Hotel and across from the Bellevue Collection. During our week stay, I hopped over to Nordstrom and shopped the Anniversary Sale, dined downstairs at restaurants like Baron’s Xi’an Kitchen & Bar and The Lakehouse, and attended the Artful Evening Gala at Bellevue Art Museum next door.
Though Two Lincoln Tower is right in the mix, living at this apartment felt like being on vacation. The units are quiet and private with panoramic views of Bellevue Park, Lake Washington, Mt. Rainier, and the Seattle skyline. I stayed in a 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath SW-facing unit on the 23rd floor — I’ll take you on a tour below!
The master bedroom has sweeping views of Bellevue Park and Lake Washington — light filters in so beautifully, especially during sunsets. The room includes a walk-in closet and a gorgeous white marble full bathroom. You can bet I enjoyed relaxing bubble baths in that deep tub!
Living Room, Kitchen, and Balcony
The moment I walked into the apartment, I was greeted by the beautiful blue waters of Lake Washington through the floor-to-ceiling windows. To the left of the entrance is the kitchen, with sophisticated wood casework subtly concealing premium appliances like a Bosch dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator.
I spent my mornings on the balcony having coffee and breakfast and answering emails, and as the weather warmed in the afternoon, I moved inside and worked from home on the dining table or couch. Somehow work seemed a little less like work when I could stare at that view!
The second bedroom is equally spacious and gorgeous, with a walk-in closet and full bathroom. I am taking interior decor notes as I love the pink tones of this room! Some units in Two Lincoln Tower come fully furnished, depending on resident needs.
Amenities (14th Floor Patio, Great Room, 41st Floor Sky Terrace, Gyms, and Resident Services)
On our first night at Two Lincoln Tower, there was a Rosé on the Rooftop resident event on the 14th floor indoor/outdoor patio. We mingled with some residents, who were so warm and friendly. The patio is an awesome shared space with BBQ grills, a kitchen, and fireside seating if you want to have a gathering or throw a larger party. Resident Services can assist with arranging catering and housekeeping if needed.
The 2nd floor has another incredible shared space, the Great Room. There is a media room, private conference room, game area, and private wine storage. Husband and I have been playing a lot of pool together lately, so we challenged each other to a few rounds on the most elegant billiards table ever.
There is not one, but two, gyms at Two Lincoln Tower. One is expansive and tranquil, while the other is attached to the W Hotel (Two Lincoln Tower residents get complimentary access) and is fun and upbeat. Husband frequented these fitness centers and loved the modern equipment, coconut water, sauna, and air-conditioned facilities.
I, on the other hand, spent more time on the 41st floor Sky Terrace getting my zen on. The lush indoor room is calming, and the outdoor rooftop space has epic panoramic views and is great for an evening glass of wine with friends over the fire pit.
Due to privacy, I didn’t photograph Residence Services, but the hospitality team was one of my favorite amenities at Two Lincoln Tower. Most luxury apartments have at least one concierge, but Two Lincoln Tower has an entire group. There is a 24/7 door attendant, and porters can help with certain errands — for example, I ordered a few items from Nordstrom, and a porter picked it up and delivered the bag to my apartment! The concierge can also support with moving-in, package delivery, and more.
Dining at Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi
Two Lincoln Tower treated us to dinner at the newly opened Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi across the street on the 31st floor. I literally gasped aloud when I walked into the restaurant because of the unobstructed views of Mt. Rainier and Lake Washington.
We started with raw items like the Hamachi Truffle Sushi Roll, Kumamoto Oyster Shooters with Uni, Sturgeon Caviar, Quail-yolk, and Sake, and Geoduck Crudo with Smoked Trout Roe (must have!). For the main entree, we ordered the Mishima Reserve Wagyu “Cap” of Ribeye with sides of grilled vegetables and Dungeness Crab Mac & Cheese. Even though we were full, we saw this fun Magic Mushroom dessert earlier in the evening and had to order it! The “mushroom” is made of white chocolate cherry mousse atop chocolate pot de creme, mocha crumb soil, and matcha shortbread with more meringue mushrooms sprinkled about.
Ascend is one of the most amazing meals we’ve had in a while — the food was outstanding and that view cannot be beat.
