Hyatt goes grand in Seattle

Hyatt Regency Seattle is expected to open in late 2018. The premium, full-service hotel is located in Seattle’s Denny Triangle neighborhood at 8th and 9th Avenues, between Stewart and Howell Streets in downtown. It will be the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest, offering 1,260 smartly designed guestrooms and suites featuring key Hyatt Regency brand touchpoints like USB charging outlets at the bed and desk, the open retail inspired “show closet,” and 65-inch smart TVs.

This hotel will be a Class-A, LEED certified building with unique and modern designs constructed to Hyatt Regency standards.

With more than 100,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event facilities, including the largest ballrooms in the city, Hyatt Regency Seattle will offer multiple food and beverage outlets. In addition to the lobby restaurant and bar serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, there will also be a grab-and-go market with a barista serving specialty coffees and robust food; snack offerings; and an expansive Regency Club Lounge with a deck and fire pit overlooking the city.

Equipped with a state of the art fitness center, the hotel will be two blocks from the Washington State Convention Center and adjacent to its planned expansion, within walking distance of many top area attractions.

Hyatt Regency Seattle

The hotel and public space interiors are designed by the Seattle-based architectural firm LMN, which received AIA 2016 Architecture Firm Award, and is known for working on civic projects in the Seattle area. The hotel design core concept is of a pure white box that sits on the hills overlooking the city. The materials consist of polished granite and composite stone for the exterior cladding, and white Venetian plaster walls for the core interior walls.

The hotel is being developed―and is owned―by Seattle’s R.C. Hedreen Company. R.C. Hedreen Company and its affiliates have been involved in the development, ownership, and management of world-class investment properties since 1963. The company has shifted its focus primarily to luxury hotels over the past decade, but its portfolio of successful projects includes retail, high-rise office buildings, and single and multi-family homes.
