The beautiful 1926 Camlin Apartment Hotel on 9th Ave. was refurbished as time share vacation apartments five years ago. That sign on top is a much beloved downtown sight at night. The exterior features lovely Tudor revival terracotta architectural details. That whole top floor that looks like wedding cake iceing was once a huge penthouse suite! The Camlin is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. Once known for it's lovely high rise views of Elliot Bay out the back, neighboring towers being constructed will make the the old girl's original 11 stories seem pretty diminutive now.
