The Historic Panama Hotel was constructed by Japanese Architect Sabro Ozasa in 1910. It is known to have served Japanese immigrants, Alaskan fishermen, and International travellers around that time. As a result, it is also known today for having the only intact Japanese Bathhouse in the United States. Until the 1950?s, the building entertained members of the Seattle?s Japanese Community but it was able to preserve its state and structure up to this day.

Intentionally built as a workingman?s hotel, it is located in the center of Seattle?s Historic District, which is accessible if you are in the downtown area. It may not be as fully equipped as the other hotels around it, but it certainly boasts of charm. It can actually be reminiscent of old Hollywood as it features a brick outer facade and a stairway bordered with bright brass handrails. Its small rooms contain personal sinks, white linens, and separate bathrooms for men and women on each floor. For all these reasons, it provides Seattle visitors a historical place to stay in. It also offers bathhouse tours to its guests for a more historic experience.
