Featuring Macqueen Hotel for November Member Spotlight.
Tell us about your business in a nutshell?
We are a Historic Property – Originally Owned by Henry Ford.
Built in 1918 as the Seattle Engineering School, the MarQueen Hotel was originally used to retrain blacksmiths to work at the Ford assembly plant on Lake Union, to build the Model T Car – Nickname is the Tin Lizzie which is how our Speakeasy got the name “The Tin Lizzie Lounge”
