The original Washington Hotel, also known as the Denny Hotel, was demolished in 1907 as a result of the Denny Regrade project, which lasted from 1902-1911 and flattened one of the steepest hills in Seattle at the time. Then-owner James Moore rebuilt the hotel circa 1908 and it was known as both the New Washington Hotel and the Hotel New Washington.
