The Arctic Club Hotel - Thanksgiving in Seattle

We stayed at the Arctic Club Hotel for our Thanksgiving week trip to Seattle. The building was originally constructed as a private club around 1917, and has probably the most character of any hotel I've found. We've stayed there in the past, and it is always very comfortable. The staff is great.

I don't generally hang out in bars, but the Polar Bar at the Arctic Club Hotel is a very comfortable place to sit and visit. The food and drinks are good too.

Heather was resting one morning so I took along a walrus for some company.

The food at Juno's is good, one morning I had the french toast. They also serve a particularly good cup of coffee.

The elevator cabs have mirrors on opposite walls, so you get a sort of infinite view of yourself. I didn't notice until after I looked closely at the picture that it alternates between front and back of the head view. I've been working on this shot for a while now (much to Heather's dismay), and finally got one that, with a bit of cropping and straightening, kind of works. I'm still working on one of the two of us.

There is a link to more images from the Arctic Club Hotel in downtown Seattle at the end of the Thanksgiving in Seattle post.
