A step back in time!

Posted Apr 11, 2014
Pros: The historic character, attentive and very friendly staff
Cons: I can't think of a thing that I would change
Location: Explore historic Pioneer Square or jump on the light rail and take the train into the heart of downtown Seattle.
Staying at the Arctic Club was like being taken back in time to the early 1900's with all the class and splendor of an exclusive club. The staff has warm chocolate chip cookies, for not just guests but visitors enjoying the ambiance of the historic surroundings. The room we stayed in was cozy and warm and just big enough to feel at home ... but better! I would highly recommend staying at the Arctic club hotel. From every staff member to the smallest detail they make you feel like an honored guest.

Great hotel in downtown Seattle

Posted Feb 21, 2014
Pros: Comfortable, great in room bar and snacks at a somewhat reasonable convenience price, a couple blocks away from Benaroya Hall.
Cons: The toilet needed fixing
Location: Benaroya Hall, Space Needle, Science Center.... anything, it's in the middle of downtown, always something to do.
It was a great hotel and I always love the free warm cookie at Doubletree hotels. The toilet in our room was a little messed up, you had to jiggle the handle to get it to stop but I'm sure they have it fixed by now. There was a wedding when we stayed so the Polar Bar was completely packed and we didn't get to go but it looked great and the bartender was putting on a bit of a show. We will check it out next time we stay, because there will be a next time.

Great Decor

Posted Feb 16, 2014
Teddy Roosevelt type theme is nice change from scads of generic "modern" style hotels that abound. Hotel staff were all exceptionally pleasant. Room spotless. Bed and bedding top notch.

WEEKEND GETAWAY

Posted Feb 10, 2014
Little weekend trip for a one night stay. Upon entering the hotel we were very happy with everything. We wanted to Valet but the concierge told us we could just park on the street for free. Very Cool. I am most critical of the room cleanliness. It was very very clean, like brand new, but it's an older hotel. I was very happy with that - especially that. The cookies are always a nice touch too. Would stay here again and i like the fact there's a great bar and restaurant on site.

Beautiful classic hotel near central waterfront.

Lovely, classy hotel with old world charm. Former men's club. Only hitch was parking which cost $41.00. Very helpful staff.

The Worst Hotel Experience I Had in my Life

Posted Jan 12, 2014
Black and white pictures of different people (looks like dead people) are everywhere around the hotel. Even your hotel room key has a picture of the person on it. With its extremely old style furnitures, the hotel provided me with an extremely uncomfortable experience and definitely felt like a haunted house and totally freaked me out. I checked out the room immediately and I was disappointed with their service that they did not allow me for a refund and charged my credit card. I tried to contact the manager of the hotel about my situation and he was extremely difficult to reach. He never repiled to my call until I have called him for five consecutive days and what he only said is "there is nothing I can do about it". Worst service and hotel I had ever have in my life. I totally discourage anyone visiting Seattle in staying at this hotel.

Updated historic property in downtown Seattle

Posted Jan 6, 2014
Cons: Curtains with overlapping tracks would make it easier to get the room really dark.
Excellent location, dedicated staff and a beautiful old building, a converted gentleman's club dating from the time of the Yukon Gold Rush. The front desk staff were efficient and very polite. Both the lobby bar and the basement restaurant/bar have an energetic happy hour until 6 pm. The building has been thoroughly renovated both in the public spaces and guest rooms. Our room had two queen beds, large and well-appointed bathroom, and was very comfortable. Decor throughout was masculine, with a good mix of old and new features and finishes. Valet parking is the only viable option for overnight stays here, and the parking fee is pretty steep at $41 per night. However, the valet staff were fast, helpful and efficient. Will stay here again if travel brings me to downtown Seattle.
