“Staff Training must be Best in Business”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Hyper-attentive service in-house; get directions from desk, valets seem from out of state. Entry on Third (where GPS sent us) problematic; use elevator phone to contact desk or enter at Cherry. Happy Hour ends earlier in Polar Bar than Juno but drinks are better. Rebate for not taking USA Today. Easy public transport, connects to SeaTac. NOTE: the cool ambiance makes up for easily disernable street noise, HOWEVER there is a building site to the south. Avoid this property when construction begins: it will be too noisy. Foam pillows are available; trust the staff's willingness to accomodate you, tell 'em what you need if they haven't already anticipated it. Take in a meal & a show at Jazz Alley: free parking there.

Room Tip: Corner suites on SW have sliver view of water. I believe it was 611 in NW corner had larger floor pl...

After struggling to narrow down the many choices of hotels in Seattle, I chose the Artic Club. I was not disappointed. The lobby and room were both styled as one would expect from a 100 year old hotel. A fireplace in the lobby with wooden accents, detailed molding in the room and a beautifully decorated bathrom contributed to an old world feel. Service was great and of course the warm Doubletree cookie upon arrival is a wonderful bonus. The hotel was a block from the Metropolitan Grill and about 1/2 mile from Pike's Market in one direction and less than that to the Amtrak Station in the other.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lobby level have high ceilings.

Charming hotel convenient locale approx 10 blocks from Pike Place Mkt; nicely upgraded rooms, friendly staff. Very good value! Would go back again.

Room Tip: Upper floors are quieter--it's a city! Nice bathroom & shower, but not all rooms have tubs...

Very classic hotel experience, where the staff go out of their way to do virtually anything possible to make your stay enjoyable. We were about as fussy as you can get, yet the staff made every effort to accomodate our somewhat quirky requests. The people make the visible difference, but you know that the room didn't get clean and the hotel wasn't spotless by itself. There must be a whole back-stage crew who you never see that make all that stuff happen. The front desk crew and housekeeping are the visible ones, and there wasn't anything that anyone seemed the slightest annoyed about our requests. They were completely gracious, warm and sincere in their demeanor, not a hint of resentment or arrogance. These guys are absolutely the best, cream of the crop.

Room Tip: ask the front desk for guidance on this. They are very professional and honest.

The Artic Club is a Seattle landmark. The Doubletree has incorporated this history with its usual high quality service and hospitality. The setting is great in downtown, yet the intimacy of this property makes it a great place to stay.

We stayed here for four night on vacation. The hotel is beautiful, and the service is great. Yes, the rooms are a little small, but I love historical buildings and I love what they have done to preserve this amazing building. The Polar Bar was awesome, and the lounge is beautiful. Juno the restaurant in the hotel was pretty good as well, especially for breakfast. The bar menu is very good. We will definitely go back. The only problem we had was the heater in our room was quite noisy. We didn't say anything because we didn't want to change rooms. I'm sure if we would have we would have been accomadated.

Stayed at the arctic club while in town for dinner with 3 couples. Paid $135 online per room. Valet parking was expensive but no options. This hotel impressed from the first step in the door. Great staff with stories of the history of the hotel, warm cookies at check in, lovely rooms, great lounge with a huge fireplace and strong drinks! Had a perfect breakfast downstairs at Luna and headed home. I strongly recommend this hotel and will definately stay there when in Seattle!
