Something Old, Something New
Mayflower Park Hotel
Celebrating its 90th anniversary this summer, Seattle’s Mayflower Park Hotel started life as the Bergonian Hotel on July 16, 1927, and has been in continuous operation ever since. The hotel was named after original owner Stephen Berg and his love of The Oregonian newspaper. In salute to its 90 years of service and with a nod to its past, Mayflower Park created The Bergonian cocktail. Raise a glass to honor an icon in Seattle’s hospitality history.
