The Arctic Club is what hotels should be: a comfortable, centrally located haven with historic character, whimsy, a great staff and a great bar.
Set in a 1914 building in downtown Seattle, the hotel has many reminders of its heritage as a private club. There are walrus reliefs by each door, historic photos and the Polar Bar.
Rooms are varied, but all I've stayed in have been comfortable, with cushy chairs and great beds. One issue in the rooms: heating and air conditioning are sometimes noisy. However, the beds are so comfortable my sleep has never suffered.
The staff are gracious and helpful and armed with helpful suggestions for area restaurants and attractions. The bar has a real art deco feel and serves up a fine martini. It can be busy some nights (though not on Sunday, unfortunately, when it's closed).
The hotel is a short walk from the Pioneer Square light rail station, where you can get a train to Seatac (about a 25-minute trip).
