An Historical Hotel

Hotel Deca first opened its doors in 1931 and at the time was the Pacific Northwest's largest suburban hotel. It was built by many of Seattle’s civic leaders and top business owners who saw a need for an upscale hotel in the city’s burgeoning University District. Reflective of architect Robert C. Reamer’s distinctive Art Deco style, the hotel was included in the 1938 American Institute of Architects traveling exhibition of the “100 Most Distinguished Buildings in America”. Hotel Deca has long been the premier choice of visiting dignitaries, Nobel Peace Prize winning scientists, and long list of other celebrities.
