Within blocks of the University of Washington, this 1931 property has been restored to its original art-deco elegance. Guest rooms are done in a modern-meets-deco style: Sky Level rooms have great views of the Cascades and the skyline to boot. The elegant District Lounge restaurant serves a mix of tasty comfort dishes, snacks, and upscale Pacific Northwest cuisine. A popular choice for Seattle International Film Festival participants, guests staying during the fest might
even catch a glimpse of independent film stars at the bar. Note that a remodel is scheduled for 2013 and some rooms may be unavailable.
