The MarQueen Hotel is located in the heart of the energetic Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle and offers boutique lodging accommodations for the most finicky guest longing for historic charm, romance, or old-fashioned hospitality. The hotel was built in 1918 and established as the Seattle Engineering School. The building was once used to retrain blacksmiths to work at the Ford assembly plant on Lake Union. The hotel is located on the main street of Queen Anne and is just a short distance to the heartbeat of Seattle's downtown. Due to its location, the hotel is popular among tourists. Seattle's most popular restaurants, boutique shops, nightclubs, as well as the Seattle Opera, Space Needle, and Pacific Northwest Ballet are all nearby.
The hotel is situated on one of the area's tallest hills and as a result offers quite a display of the Seattle skyline and exquisite views of Elliott Bay. Within walking distance from the hotel is Queen Anne's Kerry Park, an ideal location for taking in an exceptional view of the Space Needle and downtown Seattle. The hotel views combined with its old world charm make this lodging hard to beat.
The brick hotel offers 58 guestrooms and suites that bring old world charm alive in a modern setting. Each room features an eat-in kitchen, complimentary wireless internet service, monogrammed bathrobes, and air conditioning - which are hard to find in some of the older hotels. Some of the common, but equally important amenities include hairdryers, coffee makers with Fonte coffee and tea service, and irons and ironing boards. Local weekday newspaper delivery is available Monday through Friday.
The hotel houses Caffe Ladro, an espresso bar and bakery popular by the locals. Ten Mercer Restaurant is situated at the hotel and offers fine world-class cuisine in a comfortable neighborhood environment. A full service European inspired day spa is also located at the hotel called Jill Bucy Skincare. Jill Bucy is one of Seattle's favorite day spas and offers highly effective treatments and amazing facials. The impeccable d,cor adds to Jill Bucy's ambiance.
Fitness room access is available at the hotel and offers a great cardio workout. Guests can use the state of the art treadmills or elliptical machines to burn off the dinner consumed at Ten Mercer.
