About Bonnie McCallister

My Husband and I are both natives of Seattle and proud to be owners of such a wonderful historic building.

Bonnie McCallister purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Bonnie McCallister chose Pioneer Square

We bought the building when it was run down and we have restored it to modern living standards. We have lived and worked in Pioneer Square over the past 30 years. Right now is the most exciting time, for Pioneer Square and it's great to see all the new shops and restaurants and new neighbors moving to the Square. The Viaduct being removed will transform the area and connect Pioneer Square to the waterfront.

What makes this apartment unique

The State Hotel was built in 1889, after the great Seattle fire and named for the year that Washingtion went from being a Territory to becoming a State. Don't miss hearing about the unique history of Pioneer Square on the Seattle Underground Tour. It will be a highlight of your visit to Seattle. The tour talks about the State Hotel and it's famous 'Rooms 75 Cents' sign.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I spent two nights in Bonnie's Loft. It was amazing. The restaurant under the loft was one of Bonnie's recommendations and it didn't disappoint. The windows looking out on to the street were so cool and Bonnie gave us a little history of the building upon arrival. I hope this place is available next time

we're in Seattle.

unique and lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our long weekend in Seattle at this relaxing apartment near Pioneer Square. For around the same price of a nice hotel, we had a fabulous living area with great people-watching on 1st Avenue, and a full kitchen to cook a few meals in. We put in a lot of mileage walking all over the city and it was nice to come "home" to our comfortably appointed and beautiful space. Bonnie graciously let us check in a few hours early so that we could drop our bags off and spend the rest of our first afternoon exploring unencumbered by luggage, and she also got our cleaning deposit back to us extremely quickly. Friday nights in this neighborhood are loud and drunken, but the rest of the weekend was pretty quiet - quieter than we expected. And the restaurant just downstairs, Damn the Weather, is a great and convenient place to stop in for some small plates and a cocktail or two. We will surely recommend this rental to others!

Wow!!

  • 5 of 5
This place is incredible!! My wife and I spent 4 nights here and absolutely loved it. Our first trip to Seattle and the location was great; easy walking distance to nice restaurants,pubs,shopping,etc. The pictures of the loft are nice but really don't do it justice- it is a truly incredible space and much larger than we expected. The living area is very comfortable and sits right in front of a huge window that overlooks a busy street with lots of foot traffic. We enjoyed people watching and the nice breeze coming in. The only potential downside is that the space is directly above a pub/restaurant. We were a little concerned about the potential for noise but it turned out to be a non-issue for us. The pub is called "Damn the Weather" and is a must visit if you stay here. Great drink selection and small plate menu. The cost is comparable to nice hotels in the area so to us it was a no brainer to stay here vs a hotel room. Being from the east coast we don't go out west often but we would absolutely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to visit Seattle in the future.

Soo cool!

Studio One in Pioneer Square is not to be missed! The location is within walking distance of both stadiums, loads of restaurants and pubs and just around the corner from the Smith Tower. Notably a Starbucks within the same block and good parking at the Butler parking garage within two blocks. The space is a show stopper, tall ceilings and brick walls that frame an amazing 12 foot turn of the century arched window. As mentioned the iconic “State Hotel” sign is right outside the window. Two nice couches in the living room and a phenomenal Indian carved wood entry door encompass a very spacious seating area. The king bed is super cozy- with a nice set of premium sheets. Noise could be a concern, but even on a busy game night, the city sounds did not disturb our sleep. Bonnie has thoughtfully provide ear plugs if you need them. The loft has a fully appointed kitchen with lots of pots and pans if you want to dine in. We had a fantastic meal at Il Terrazzo Carmine, located just a few blocks down-amazing food and fabulous service. We also found Taylor Shellfish Oysterbar- wow- super fresh oysters shucked right in front of you (if you sit at the bar). Bonnie was great to work with, you will not be disappointed.

The Most Elegant Space in the Pioneer Square Neighborhood !

  • 5 of 5
Pioneer Square is an historic neighborhood in Seattle, full of lovely turn of the century brick buildings, restaurants, art galleries…and of course a couple of stadiums not far away.

The loft's high ceilings and the grander of the beautiful arched window is a terrific starting point. Add to that the host’s great tastes in furnishings, color, lighting, art, antiques and architectural artifacts and you have a beautiful and stunning place to stay..…it is also a very comfortable place to stay as the exposed brick walls, wood floors and area rugs create a very cozy feel….what a pleasure to spend time in this very distinctive apartment.

It is perfectly located for all Seattle has to offer, busses are frequent at right outside, the waterfront is a block or so away, the space is very clean, the big bed is very comfortable, the host is very gracious and the kitchen and bath have everything you need.

We’re coming back!

Best Choice in Seattle

  • 5 of 5
Staying here was like being in a movie set, except it was real! Not just a cool historic place to stay, but a complete experience. We felt that we should be having celebrities over for cocktails every night! It was just like we were living in a high end loft in Soho in Manhattan. Very upscale, well maintained, very comfortable high end interiors and unbelievable spaces. And all the great hotel details that we all hope for were there... all new great linens, bath amenities, but with a stainless washer/dryer. And everything was immaculate. Looking out the enormous arched window made us not want to leave every day. But, we found many fabulous restaurants across the street and just around the corner. (And it is just an easy flight of stairs) The highlight of the loft, aside from the incredibly high brick walls and ceilings, is the enormous arched window, that lets you look out over First Ave. I highly recommend this property to anyone that wants a great value combined with a totally fabulous experience.

Not Worth 75 Cents

  • 1 of 5
Last month, I intended to stay at this location. Long story short, I paid for a hotel room to avoid staying longer than it took to pick up my bags.

Long story longer, I opened by code to a moldy smelling entrance. Going to the loft door, there is a code to open; I noticed the door was unlocked. Opening the door I found two middle-aged, near-naked individuals with wine bottles scattered throughout the room.

They introduced themselves as the owners, that they decided to stay the previous night, had a few friends over, and "wow did we come early". After an hour, I received a text message that the room was ready for my enjoyment.

In speculation, the sheets were not clean when we arrived; for the room to be ready that quickly makes one wonder how sanitary the environment is. Extremely professional.

Owner's Response: I would like to correct and clarify some of your statements. You entered the apartment, without knocking or calling, at 10:30 in the morning. The door was unlocked and we were in the middle of cleaning the apartment. My listing states that check in time is 4:00 in the afternoon.
You arrived unannounced and walked in over 5 hours early. You opened the door on my husband and I, who had been cleaning diligently for three hours. We had spent the night, and were just sitting down to take a short break. I was in my full length robe, and my husband had on jeans and had taken off his shirt, as he had been working so hard. I had already changed the bed linens and towels by the time you entered. There were not "wine bottles scattered throughout the room" but a bag of recycling and trash waiting to be taken out the door. The apartment was very clean, and I am very experienced in the hospitality business and have been hosting guests for years, all who have been thrilled to stay at one of my apartments. I am sorry this did not work out for you. But I feel I most things in your remarks were misrepresenting what actually happened. Yes, I texted you an hour after you came in the door, telling you the apartment was ready four hours before our check-in time. I thought that would work for you. So sorry it did not.
