The Best Places to Sit, Stay + Play with Your Pooch

Seattle’s MarQueen Hotel has Gone to the Dogs

The regal MarQueen Hotel has undergone a recent face lift and now two- and four-legged guests can revel in its old world charm and modern amenities.


Built in 1918, MarQueen Hotel was originally the Seattle Engineering School, housing Henry Ford’s students. These blacksmiths developed the Model-T, the first affordable car for the middle-class, with the building becoming the largest single garage in the city. Later, the garage moved to upper Queen Anne Hill, and thus MarQueen Hotel was born. This rich history is still seen throughout the property, engineered with charming touches and nods to it’s unique ride to success.

As you walk into MarQueen Hotel, step back into the time of speakeasies, eclectic style, and charming hospitality. Located in the heart of Seattle’s oldest neighborhood, Uptown, located at the base of Queen Anne, this prohibition-era hotel offers a place for you and your pooch to feel right at home. Apartment-style rooms offer a vintage ambiance with a quaint dining nook, cozy sitting area, and in-room kitchenette. The pampering extends to your pup with a dog bed and food and water bowls.

The hotel’s Tin Lizzie Lounge is a prohibition style speakeasy, stocked with local spirits and brews and the mixologists are well versed in libation of the era, hand-crafting their own delicious recipes. Pair your cocktail with light bar bites with a focus on the best locally sourced produce, spices and meats. Adjoining rooms off the bar are perfect for hosting a small soiree with friends, two- and four-legged alike.

Fido is considered part of your family at the MarQueen Hotel, with welcome goodies like treats and a blanket for your pup to enjoy and take home. In-room amenities also include a dog bed plus water and food bowls to make your dog’s stay as comfortable as yours.

A reservation at the MarQueen Hotel is your key to the city, with easy access to a host of things to do in Seattle, Washington. Local points of interest like the Space Needle and Seattle Center are within walking distance of our hotel, as is the monorail stop to downtown attractions. Attend events at major venues like the Climate Pledge Arena, home of NHL Seattle Kraken, or Paramount Theatre. If you need to stock up on treats, Mud Bay is just a hop, skip and a jump away at 522 Queen Anne Ave N.
