One of the many features available for guests at Hotel Ballard is complimentary admission to Olympic Athletic Club. This newly remodeled health club/athletic facility is adjacent to the hotel and can be accessed directly through the hotel lobby.

Olympic Athletic Club proudly serves Seattle residents in a comfortable, professional atmosphere. Amenities include group exercise classes, two lap swimming pools, saunas, hot tubs, men’s and women’s steam rooms, court sports, and the latest in cardiovascular and weight training equipment in our exercise studios.

The iconic building was constructed in the 1890s in the heart of historic downtown Ballard. It opened as Olympic Athletic Club in 1979 and has since grown to be one of Seattle’s premier health clubs. The old-world charm of the original architecture is still apparent today in its exposed brick and large windows. A vibrant neon clock and diver created by famous neon artist Roger Legarno illuminates the way to our entrance.

The club continues to be a Ballard staple with continued service and connection to the community. It is proud to provide people of all ages and abilities with a variety of ways to achieve health and fitness goals.

Hotel Ballard is proud to offer our guests with the best possible health facilities during their stay. Enjoy a morning yoga class before lunch at one of Ballard’s many delightful restaurants, or take a dip in the pool after a day exploring Seattle. Don’t pass up the chance to experience the club during your stay!
