The Arctic Club Seattle

The Arctic Club building in Seattle was built in 1916. It's now a Double Tree by Hilton Hotel. I worked on the 2nd floor for Northwestern Title Company from 1984 to 1990 when the building was owned by the City of Seattle. It's a beautiful old building and I love the Northern Lights Dome Room. This huge room has a leaded-glass domed ceiling complete with Rococo motifs. The light is filtered through the domes colored glass and makes for a wonderful atmosphere. As a hotel, it's was beautifully restored in 2008 with great attention and detail to its original glory.

The Arctic Club was a fraternal organization originally formed in 1908 by those who returned to Seattle after striking it rich in Alaska in the Klondike Gold Rush.
