Transformed into a 120-room Hotel
Arctic Club Hotel Seattle Will Be Managed by The Hotel Group
|SEATTLE, March 30, 2007 - A beloved piece of Seattle history is embracing
a very promising future as one of the city's most unique luxury hotels.
Arctic Club Hotel Seattle will open in January 2008 at the Arctic Building
at 700 Third Avenue.
The property was purchased in spring 2006 by owners Arctic Club Hotel
LLC, comprised of Spokane-based developers Bill Lawson and Chris Ashenbrener
and Conover Bond Development. The ownership set into motion a delicate
and thorough interior reorganization, recruiting an A-list of partners,
from construction and interior notables to an experienced local hotel management
company, The Hotel Group of Edmonds, Wash.
The Arctic Club was established in 1908 as a fraternal men's club by the few adventurers who found their fortune in the Klondike gold rush. The Club was a social community for some of the city's most prominent founding businessmen with Alaska ties, former Alaska residents, travelers, miners and wealthy eccentrics who returned to Seattle with money and stories of adventure. In 1916, the Club moved into the Arctic Club Building. Photos of original Club members will be prominently displayed throughout the hotel as a nod to the property's roots.
Arctic Club Hotel Seattle is affiliated with Summit Hotels & Resorts, a select group of properties characterized by individual design and welcoming service. Summit Hotels & Resorts is a member of the Preferred Hotel Group family of brands. www.summithotels.com
