The Hotel Abbott occupied the southeast corner of Pike Street and 3rd Avenue.


The mercurial but highly productive architect Elmer H. Fisher designed the Hotel Abbott after the Seattle Fire of 1889, and briefly managed the establishment. A number of hotels operated near the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Pike Street in the early 20th century, including the Hotel Abbott, Hotel Snoqualmie (located across 3rd Avenue), the Hotel Loring (at 1419-1423 4th Avenue) and a hotel at 1506-1510 3rd Avenue.

Building History

After his temporary retirement from practicing architecture in 1891, Elmer Fisher (c. 1851- c. 1910) became the proprietor of this hotel, one that he designed. He did not last in this role, and relocated to Southern CA in the mid-1890s.

In 1901, F. P. Mullen was the proprietor of the Abbott Hotel. (See R.L. Polk and Company's Seattle, Washington, City Directory, 1901, p. 614.)


The Abbott Hotel was razed.
