Cornerspotter: A Seattle Hotel Of Another Time

Cornerspotter is the Curbed Seattle feature in which we show you a historical photo taken somewhere in the city and you identify the location. Impress fellow Curbed readers with your knowledge by leaving guesses in the comments or send them to our tipline: seattle@curbed.com. We'll post the answer on Monday. And hey: no cheating!

Since it's still Hotels Week, let's look back on an old Seattle hotel gone by. You don't need to be too much of a historian to see that this 1914 photo was about the time of Seattle's regrading. Specifically, the Sixth Avenue regrade. This hotel became an apartment complex and even included a cafe, all three of which shared the same name. Can you tell us what hotel this is and what cross-street it was on along Sixth Avenue?
