What is a historic hotel like in Downtown Seattle?
Guests who choose historic hotels have the chance to stay in a building that has been recognized with an official historic designation. Historic hotels throughout the world can be castles, palaces, grand homes or even old police stations, pubs, lodges or skyscrapers — any building that’s been identified as being of special interest. These types of hotels in Downtown Seattle usually retain authentic elements like traditional architecture and period features in their communal spaces or guestrooms.
What is the difference between a historic hotel and a heritage hotel?
The two are similar. “Historic hotel” is a term often used in the U.S., while you’ll often hear “heritage hotel” in Asia and Europe. Historic hotels tend to put more importance on the architecture and building. A heritage hotel draws meaning mainly from the cultural value and how it influenced the community.
Do historic hotels in Downtown Seattle have modern facilities?
Yes. Every effort is made to preserve historic facades and treasured traditions, but hotel interiors are fitted with modern conveniences and safety features.

In Downtown Seattle, booking a historic hotel doesn’t mean you’re picking a place that’s rundown.
