Building History

This hotel opened 10/31/1926. Originally known as the Camlin Apartment Hotel. The hotel was sold to the Vance Lumber Company by 1931.

In 1936, John E. Graham managed the Camlin Hotel. (See Seattle, Washington, City Directory, 1936, p. 632.)

The Camlin Hotel had many different owners in the 1980s and 1990s. Trendwest Resorts bought the hotel in 2003, and spent 21 million dollars remodeling it before it re-opened.

In 1942, a cocktail lounge was added along with 50 additional guest rooms. In addition, a rooftop penthouse was converted into the Cloud Room, a swanky lounge and restaurant in 1942. In 1960, 52 Cabana units, a pool and a sundeck were added to the hotel.
