Rooms + suites
Thoughtful details throughout the accommodations aim to delight. A welcome note and treat greet guests as they first settle in, and quirky messages accompany daily turndown treats that are made in-house or curated from local artisans. Guests love the complimentary in-room Nespresso coffee experience, and the Malin+Goetz bath amenities are gentle, effective and softly fragrant. Near-at-hand notepads highlight near-to-Archer’s-heart quotations by famous folks from the area. And the most Insta-worthy photo? The whimsical bath slippers — they’re fun, convenient and our guests’ to keep.
AKB, Archer's boutique hotel bar
Evening shareables, flatbreads and plates are served a la carte either bar-side or in-room. Ahi Tataki Bites add a gourmet twist, while the Brie Fondue is a real crowd pleaser. A selection of flatbreads, bowls and plates fill the menu — several of which are vegetarian. Or choose Steak Frites or the AKB Burger. And yes, tasty desserts are on hand for our sweet-tooth guests — including a crazy-good Salted Caramel Bourbon Shake.
Archer’s mixologists serve up classic and craft cocktails, Washington wines and bubbles, and local craft beers. Guests can meet old friends and make new ones via a rousing game of shuffleboard — a fun way to kick back and relax.
Moments of downtime
Archer’s all-season pool is a fun way for families to expend energy (or that of the kiddos).
