Most of the Hilton chain hotels have a corporate / non personable feel to them. However, The Arctic Club is definitely not like that. I was looking for a hotel in the Seattle area on my Hilton points and chose this over the regular Hilton due to the personality it looked like it had on the pictures, and it met every or exceed expectation I had.
The staff/ service here went above and beyond my expecations. The staff was super super friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. They also gave us a complimentary cookie at check in, and in the room, there was a personalized welcome note with two bottles of water, and caramel pop corn, which I thought was a really nice touch. For turn down service, they left two pairs of slippers and candy! It's little touches like that which make a hotel from good to great.
The room itself was very nice with lots of character. I really loved the personality and decoration of the room, compared to the corporate looking rooms of most Hiltons. As a Hilton Diamond member, we were upgraded to the top floor which came with a balcony and amazing view of the Seattle skyline. Another nice surprise was the oversized jacuzzi tub (big enough to fit two!) - I think I took 4 baths in my one night stay here.
Tip: They charge $41 a night for parking at the hotel, but there's loads of parking garages within a few blocks for half the price. We found a garage on 2nd and Columbia two blocks away for only a $10 flat fee from 3pm til 1pm the next day.
