Southeast Ballroom

$159.00 / $209.00 night

As its name implies, the Southeast Ballroom was originally a portion of the Mansion's grand third-floor Ballroom. It boasts a beautiful king-size bed with high-end Simmons Beauty rest pillow top mattress and luxurious high thread-count hand-pressed cotton linens. There also is a twin-size daybed and trundle for additional guests if needed. The private bath includes a tub and shower combination and pedestal sink. There is new, period-style subway tile for the tub surround and octagon-and-dot tile for the bathroom floor but with the modern comfort update of in-floor heating. Also for the optimum comfort of our guests, the 2009 renovation included installation of central air conditioning.


The room is fully carpeted for decreased sound transmission between the second and third floors. Amenities include a 40" 1080p high-definition LCD TV with digital cable and DVD player, wireless and wired high-speed Internet access, and private phone with voicemail and free local calls. The many divided-light leaded casement windows of the Southeast Ballroom overlook the residential view of 14th Avenue East (Millionaire's Row) and the Mansion's South Garden and terrace.


Like the other third-floor guest rooms, the Southeast Ballroom is larger than the queen-size guest rooms on the second floor, but with the same room rate it is attractively priced for guests who are able to negotiate the additional stairs. The Southeast Ballroom is wonderful for a single guest or couple, with the added flexibility to accommodate 3 or even 4 guests.

Southwest Ballroom

$159.00 / $209.00 night

Originally comprising the southwest portion of the Mansion’s grand third-floor Ballroom, the Southwest Ballroom is beautifully outfitted with a California King bed featuring high-end Simmons Beauty rest pillow top mattress and fabulous high thread-count hand-pressed cotton linens. There is a large leather couch for sitting and lounging, and it doubles as a queen-size foldout bed to accommodate additional guests when needed. The newly-updated private bath features a good-sized walk-in shower, pedestal sink, and period-style tile floors with the decidedly modern touch of in-floor heating. There is an original stained-glass window in the bath as well. A major facet of the 2009 renovation was the addition of central air conditioning to keep the guest rooms cool and comfortable even on the hottest days Seattle has to offer.

The Southwest Ballroom, and the other third-floor guest rooms, are fully carpeted to reduce transmission of sound between floors. Amenities include a 40” 1080p high-definition LCD TV with digital cable and DVD player, wireless and wired high-speed Internet access, and private phone with voicemail and free local calls. The windows of the Southwest Ballroom overlook the South Garden and terrace, and also offer a view to the west, including Queen Anne Hill and small views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains.

As with the other third-floor guest rooms, the Southwest Ballroom is significantly larger than the comparably-priced queen-size rooms on the second floor, making it an attractive alternative for those guests who don't mind the additional stairs. And with the sleeper-sofa it also offers the flexibility to accommodate up to 4 guests.

*Rates are for 1-2 guests.

The newly-renovated private bath features a pedestal sink, a period-style tile floor with cozy in-floor heating, as well as a shower and tub combination with new subway tile surround. Included in the extensive 2009 renovations was the addition of central air conditioning for optimum summer comfort. An original stained-glass window is also found in the bath.

All the third-floor guest rooms, including the Central Ballroom, are fully carpeted for improved sound isolation between floors. Amenities include a 40” 1080p high-definition LCD TV with digital cable and DVD player, wireless and wired high-speed Internet access, and private phone with voicemail and free local calls. The windows of the Central Ballroom offer one of the best views in the Mansion, including Elliott Bay, Queen Anne Hill, and the Olympic Mountains. There is also a winter view of the Space Needle.

The Central Ballroom is offered at the same nightly rate as the queen-size rooms on the second floor but is significantly larger, and with the flexibility of a second queen bed is able to accommodate up to 4 guests in great comfort. It is a perfect choice for guests able to negotiate the additional stairs.
