The Edgewater

The Edgewater (formerly the Edgewater Inn and, briefly when first constructed, the Camelot) is a four-story, 223-room hotel in Seattle, Washington, United States. It is located on the Central Waterfront on a pier over Elliott Bay (a bay of Puget Sound) and is the only over-water, and water-front hotel in the Seattle area. Shortly after it was built, shoreline zoning changes precluded the construction of further hotels on piers.In its early years, the hotel advertised on its north elevation that you could "fish from your room."

The hotel is particularly famous for hosting The Beatles when they visited Seattle in 1964 at the height of Beatlemania.Because of the Beatles' connection to the hotel, there is a Beatles-themed suite and the hotel has hosted several Beatles-related events and tributes in recent years.Other famous guests have included Led Zeppelin (who were banned from the hotel after their second infamous stay there,the Rolling Stones,Frank Zappa,and U.S. president Bill Clinton. However,Robert Plant was welcomed back to the hotel during his recent concert in Seattle. The Edgewater is also a filming location in the 1992 season 3 episode "It Happened in Juneau" of Northern Exposure.

The hotel sits on the site of the onetime Galbraith-Bacon Pier, renamed Pier 67 during World War II. It also incorporates part of the area of the former Pier 68 (the Booth Fisheries Pier). Both old piers were demolished to build the hotel. The hotel was originally intended to open in time for the Century 21 Exposition, Seattle's 1962 world's fair. Originally named the Camelot, it soon became the Edgewater Inn (more recently, just The Edgewater).
