The Arctic Club Seattle - A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel
Our favorite hotel, bar none
We booked our stay here after reading an article about the history of the club, the landmark building and its Polar Bar, but nothing prepared us for how impressed we were with our stay here. When we visited, Hilton had only recently acquired the property, so the signature warm DoubleTree cookies were a very pleasant surprise at check in (and by request on a few late nights...). Our room was warm, cozy and had probably the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. Drinks at the Polar Bar felt like being transported back to the times of the club, complete with an abundance of bourbon cocktails and a bar seemingly inset with blocks of ice. Really a unique and beautiful place to stay.
