Building History

Seattle architect William P. White (d. 1932) designed this hotel for the Coblentz Brothers in 1909. Its main tenant at the beginning was the Hotel Nelson, which operated until c. 1913, when it became the Wayne Apartments, operating at 2224 2nd Avenue.

In 1953, Randolph Raden managed the Commodore Hotel. Its city directory advertisement indicated that it had all new Simmons furnishings and garage facilities and billed itself as "Canadian Visitors Favorite Hotel." (See Seattle, Washington, City Directory, 1953, p. 643.)

It ended its existence as the Commodore Hotel, a low-cost transient hotel, which ceased operations in 2006. The building was demolished in 2008.

Building Notes

In 1909, this hotel was also called the "Wayne Hotel."


The Hotel Nelson was razed in 2008.
