As a member of Provenance Hotels, Hotel Theodore cultivates relationships with several illuminators in Seattle, honoring the city’s makers and its rich history of innovation. Hotel Theodore collaborates with these innovators and tastemakers to create only-in-Seattle travel experiences that inspire and delight, from the raincoats in guestrooms to the hotel’s museum-curated art collection. Learn more about our partners below.
While Seattle actually sees less rainfall than cities like New York and Atlanta, a raincoat can come in handy for a drizzly day. That’s why suites come stocked with a pair of Freeman Seattle jackets. Husband-and-wife team Scott and Brittany Freeman founded the local company in 2010, with the goal of crafting beautifully designed, high-quality rain jackets here in Seattle. They’ve since expanded beyond outerwear, so be sure to visit their boutique in nearby Capitol Hill, where the couple is on-hand nearly every day.
Light in the Attic
Immerse yourself in Seattle’s pioneering music scene with our Light in the Attic guest rooms. Located on our 20th floor, the one-of-a-kind Light in the Attic rooms celebrate Seattle’s visionary independent record label. Each room feature turntables, a label-curated collection of vinyl records, large photographs of influential artists, and a copy of the label’s zine.
When Light In The Attic was founded in 2001 the dot-com bubble was bursting and conventional wisdom was declaring vinyl dead. With a fierce commitment to quality and disdain for convention, the label sought out under-the-radar recordings and released over 200 instant classics including Wheedle’s Groove, an exuberant affirmation of Seattle’s soul heritage, the recordings of Sixto Rodriguez, the Detroit-born artist and star of the Oscar-winning film, Searching For Sugar Man, and reissues of funk goddess Betty Davis and larger-than-life crooners Serge Gainsbourg and Lee Hazlewood. You can find their records at their store at the KEXP studio in Seattle Center and in every Light in the Attic guest room at Hotel Theodore.
Museum of History and Industry
Our art collection—a mix of photography, patent drawings, and artifacts—was curated in collaboration with Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI). All of the works pay tribute to Seattle’s pioneering spirit. From the engineers at Boeing to the founders of Starbucks to the tech wizards at Microsoft and Amazon, these innovators have made Seattle a global hub for creativity, revolutionizing daily life for millions of people. MOHAI also leads lectures and events on-property, so guests at Hotel Theodore can learn first-hand about the city’s rich heritage.
