“a real gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is one of the best-kept secrets in Seattle. Perfect location -- 2 blocks from Smith Tower, 1 block from Columbia Tower, which is tallest building in city. Both buildings have nice observation decks at minimal cost. Just 3 blocks from Underground Seattle, a must-see tour that explains the history of this city so well. The hotel is 100 years old. Service is excellent. Rooms are smallish, as are rooms in most historic buildings. Huge lobby bar with lots of antique furnisher and a gigantic polar bear (perfect photo op). Just 4 blocks from the waterfront, ferries and Pike Market. Looking for place to eat or drink or whatever, the concierge will give excellent advice. On all our future trips to Seattle, we will stay here.

Room Tip: Just to the left of the 3rd Ave. entrance is an inexpensive, excellent espresso/deli with great brea...

My wife and I stayed at this excellent hotel. It was walking distance to my business destination, was well equipped. Nice bed, lovely room, excellent staff with a great attitude.
The warms cookies made it better when I had to wait for a large group of Polish tourists check in.

We had breakfast at the hotel restaurant and were very impressed with the Eggs Benedict and good quality coffee.

My only crtiticism would be the surrounding area being overrun with vagrants and homeless people. There was also a large group of people protesting down the street at the municipal buildings, which disturbed us when we tried to nap after a long flight.

One other issue, again, not the hotel's fault, but all the restaurants around the area, along with stores within walking distance close after 6:00 PM, making it hard to have a quick meal without a cab or a 25 minute walk (typically past homeless people).

All-in-all, a great hotel experience.

Pros: walking distance away from Safeco Field and CenturyLink Field. Cool decor, really feels like you are in a 1920's or 1930's hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant in the basement has an excellent breakfast.

Cons: The valet fee is over $40 and if you decide to park on your own it's a hassle. When I tried to check in a little early my room wasn't ready. It's looks like they are getting ready to start construction on a major building soon. I'd guess it's going to get quite noisy when that construction begins.

The hotel overall was a bit dark but it was not overly populated which was very nice. The staff was exceedingly friendly. My room was clean which is always appreciated. Minor issues include the AC was a bit noisy and the tv was not located in a spot where you can see it from the bed, plus, it was too high.

I love this hotel! Whenever I am in downtown Seattle, I stay here. The hotel rooms are unique, with an old-world feel. The hotel staff members are always friendly and helpful.

The Arctic Club is just a few blocks from Pike Place Market and is also close to other downtown attractions.

We attended a small wedding at this hotel and it is a beautiful venue. We also stayed within the hotel block - which was an amazing deal for a downtown Seattle hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful, historic, and recently renovated. The staff at the hotel were so welcoming and helpful. We also used the valet parking and the valet staff was also very helpful. We were able to check-in early, which was great to get some extra sightseeing in. Also, the rooms are pretty large and extremely quiet. Even though the wedding was on the same floor as our hotel room, when we went back at the end of the night we could hardly hear the DJ music from across the hall. Overall, great stay and we will be retuning to the Arctic Club in the future.
