The staff of the historic Mayflower Park Hotel has teamed up with Arcadia Publishing to print our first ever history book. Complete with pictures, captions and detailed events, this book presents the hotel and the Seattle scene from 1927 to present. As the longest continuously operating hotel in Seattle, the Mayflower Park Hotel has been greeting guests just like you for almost 87 years.

Seven years ago three hotel staff members felt as if the history of the hotel needed to be recognized. Audrey McCombs, Craig Packer and Trish Festin pulled up their sleeves and went to work, after their day jobs had been complete. They visited Washington State University Libraries, Seattle Public Library and University of Washington, gathering historical archives dating back to 1927. And then there were the guests' stories, the employee logs and the owners' very own records and notes. It took several years, a large spreadsheet and 12 large binders full of history to complete the project. The hotel historians didn’t set out to write a book, they simply wanted to tell the story of the Mayflower Park Hotel and the current owners, Birney and Marie Dempcy. In 1974, Birney and Marie formed a limited partnership to purchase the hotel and renamed it the Mayflower Park Hotel. With so much history and the 40th anniversary of the Dempcy’s local ownership, it became clear the hotel’s story needed to be printed. To have employees of the hotel actually write the book, as history has shown, is the grassroots "Quite Simply, One of a Kind" Mayflower Park way.

The book Images of America, Seattle's Mayflower Park Hotel is available on Amazon as well as in local retail bookstores. Hotel General Manager, Paul Ishii states, "We have generations of families, employees and guests who have fond memories of our hotel. We hope this book becomes a commemorative piece for them. We also want to showcase to the Seattle community that the hotel has been an integral part of the city’s fabric since 1927."
