An early resident of Mercer Island, Charles C. Calkins developed East Seattle, an wealthy residential suburb on the northwest part of the island. In this sub-division, he erected the Calkins Hotel, designed by John Parkinson. Calkins used a steamboat to ferry guests to-and-from Seattle to his hotel.

The Calkins Hotel was also known as the "East Seattle Hotel."

Demolished; the former Calkins Hotel burned in 1908.
