The Pacific Northwest At Your Doorstep

The art museums, cafés, boutiques, and restaurants that make downtown Seattle the cultural hub of the Pacific Northwest are all close at hand. Pike Place Market and beloved Seattle neighborhoods like Capitol Hill are a short walk away, and within a few minutes by car, guests can reach iconic Seattle points of interest like the Space Needle and the ferries bound across the gorgeous Puget Sound. Just beyond the city, the region’s pristine wilderness and parklands beckon nature lovers and adventurers as well.

A Landmark Reborn

Hotel Theodore’s modernist Art Deco tower was the tallest hotel in the city when it opened downtown as the Roosevelt Hotel in 1929. Since then, under the warm glow of the building’s red neon “ROOSEVELT” sign, Seattle has evolved from the epicenter of the Pacific Northwest’s maritime and forestry industries to a cradle of innovation that has transformed the aviation, computing, retail, and hospitality industries, and taken a center seat in global table. Does seem like a lot to navigate? No worries, we’ve done the research for you! Check out the articles from our Seattle Instruction Manual below to read more on putting the pieces together.
