Arctic Club Hotel

A perfect blend of historic architecture, thoughtful details, and modern luxuries, the iconic Arctic Club Hotel offers a one-of-a-kind experience in the heart of downtown Seattle. Built in 1916, the historic 10-story, 120 room landmark has been beautifully restored with a nod to a heritage rooted in exploration and adventure and a past richly associated with the Klondike Gold Rush. Known for its exquisite architecture, featuring terra cotta walrus head sculptures adorning the exterior and the famous Northern Lights Dome Room with its majestic stained-glass ceiling, the Arctic Club Hotel has been a history-maker from the get-go.

Conveniently located on the corner of Third Avenue and Cherry Street, the Arctic Club Hotel is within walking distance of Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, T Mobile Park, and Lumen Field. On a clear day, guests will relish views not only of the Seattle Waterfront; but also Mount Rainier, Smith Tower, and a sneak peak of the Space Needle.

From Our Guests

"I travel to Seattle a few times a year for work and the Arctic Club is just a few doors down from our corporate office. The hotel is lovely, clean, and comfortable.. I am glad to have such a nice hotel near the office so I don't need a car to get around. The hotel is only a few blocks from the water's edge and lots of restaurants nearby."
"The ambience and the atmosphere set this place apart from the rest. The service and amenities are amazing. Very close walking distance to everything. The bar is welcoming, in an open area off the main entrance. Very convenient for Columbia Tower, Smith Tower and even Pike Place Market."
"We got married in the Northern Lights Dome Room venue, which had a magnificent glass domed ceiling and and was a perfect venue for both the ceremony and later for the reception. The hotel is located near convenient public transit and a 15 minute walk from Pike Place Market and the light rail to the Space Needle."
