The Historic Inn at Virginia Mason, on First Hill in Seattle
The Inn at Virginia Mason is located in the quiet neighborhood of historic First Hill. Built in the 1920s as The Rhododendron Apartments, the Inn retains much of its original charm and character. The Inn was purchased by Virginia Mason Hospital in the late 1960s.
Renamed the "Mason House", the Inn operated as an apartment hotel for many years. Gradually, as long-term tenants moved out, the hospital began to operate the facility as a limited service hotel for patients of the hospital and clinic.
In 1988-89 Virginia Mason renovated the old apartment building into a first-class European-style hotel with a range of rooms and amenities. Since then, improvements have been made to create a showcase facility for business and leisure travelers as well as patients of Virginia Mason and other nearby medical centers.
