This 1916 Temple In Washington Is Now A Hotel You’ll Want To Visit

If you’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest for awhile, you’ve probably heard of the McMenamin family. For decades, the McMenamins have opened pubs, breweries, event venues, and hotels in Oregon and Washington, including this one in Bothell. Each property has their telltale whimsical decor and sells their local brew. Recently, they converted an old Elks Temple from 1916 into one of their multipurpose properties, and you’ll definitely want to explore it.
