Originally built in 1926, this classic brick and terracotta building was thoroughly recreated in 2004 to become the hotel it is now. Reflecting a progressive attitude, as inspired by the surrounding neighbourhood of Belltown, with its artist studios, galleries, boutiques and restaurants, the hotel offers travellers a unique and stylish hotel alternative in Downtown Seattle. The hotel's design celebrates the strong elements of the Northwest - water, woods and stone - along with Scandinavian design influences. Stepping into the hotel's living room, guests are surrounded by distressed plank floors with inset custom wool hand-knotted rugs, warm walls, and rich brown woods. Arne Jacobsen swan chairs in hot orange, and minimalist accent lighting complete the relaxed, yet progressive attitude. The dramatic lobby fireplace, constructed of local split-grain granite, is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling golden maple bookcases and topped with a floating steel-wrapped plasma screen projecting an ever changing collection of electronic fine art. A laundry service is provided for a fee.Check-in time is 3 pm and check-out time is 1 pm.The hotel provides convenient rooms.
