History of The Grove

Detailed Simplicity

1962 was an exciting time with Seattle's hosting of the World's Fair. There were many special events that happened, and of course, the landmark Space Needle opened to much fanfare. It was also a big year for West Seattle, including when the hotel opened, offering convenient accommodations for Fair visitors from around the globe.

Over the years, the property has seen its fair share of changes but it was not until 2010 - when the new owners purchased the property and re-opened it as The Grove in July 2011 - that The Grove took on a fresh look, and a refreshing new take on welcoming, clean, and comfortable lodging.

For the family who owns The Grove West Seattle is not just the location of their business, it has been home for five generations.
