Restored to its early 20th Century glory with a fabulous renovation in 2008, the Arctic Club Doubletree is unique, elegant and well-located. Immediately across the street is a mass transit tunnel that provides rail access to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, as well as a free service area for buses in central Seattle. The famous Pike Place Market is within walking distance or you can grab a bus and ride a couple of stops for even easier access. The immediate area provides plenty of choices for dining and a plethora of coffee shops in the most caffeinated city anywhere. Pioneer Square and the waterfront are within easy reach, too.
As for the hotel itself, we especially enjoyed the historic charm and comfortable beds. Rooms are nicely finished and furnished with nice touches like in room coffee using a French press coffeemaker. We've seen some renovations in which the only thing left of the building was something on the order of a paved-over shell, but the Arctic Club celebrates its history throughout -- from historic photographs of its former members on the keycards to careful refinishing and preservation of its finest attributes. The result is 21st Century comfort with an ambiance that keeps the property's past vibrant and alive. We loved it and we think you will, too.
Give the Juno dining room a try and particularly the happy hour food offerings at half price. It's a funky menu the celebrates the Pacific Northwest, but you're sure to find something you like. The bar off the lobby is open later and it's a classy atmosphere that harkens back to the hotel's roots as a social club for men who made it their money in the days of the Klondike gold rush.
