W Hotels debuts W Bellevue, the brand’s first new-build hotel in North America in seven years

W Bellevue brings 220 guestrooms and 25 suites in the newest Lincoln Square expansion

W Hotels Worldwide announced the opening of W Bellevue. The hotel pays homage to lakeside culture with cabin-like architecture, reimagined traditional décor, and locally-inspired cocktails and cuisine. Built as a W from the ground up, W Bellevue brings 220 guestrooms and 25 suites in the newest Lincoln Square expansion.

The property

Designed by HKS Inc. lead by Mary Alice Palmer and HKS architect Tom Sprinkle, W Bellevue beside Lake Washington. The wood staircase in the entrance is surrounded by rich, colorful street art from famed international artist Gaia. Additional original artwork from renowned artists Lady Aiko and Zio Ziegler are set throughout the property.

The hotel’s Living Room (the brand’s take on the hotel lobby) is a clubhouse for the modern traveler, showcasing exposed A-frame beams that line the ceiling – reminiscent of a log cabin home.

Each of the 220 guest rooms and 25 suites at W Bellevue brings guests closer to the communal history of the city, dating back to the first settlers who gathered around the docks and ferries and served as the center of community and commerce.

The 2,300-square-foot, two-bedroom Extreme WOW Suite (the brand’s take on the traditional Presidential suite) is a decked-out party palace with views of Lake Washington. Perched high on the thirteenth floor, the double door entry opens to a vibrant suite featuring two king beds (with one hanging from the ceiling) a state of the art surround sound audio system (vinyl included), an in-room pool and poker table and retractable flat screen TV.

Eat & Drink

W Bellevue houses The Lakehouse, showcasing a Northwest farmhouse concept, and Civility & Unrest, a speakeasy-inspired cocktail lounge, both from James Beard Award-winning chef, Jason Wilson.

Hidden within Gaia’s showpiece is a discreet entrance to Civility & Unrest, a modern speakeasy-inspired lounge offering a craft cocktail insider experience by Chef Wilson. The whiskey bar and cocktail lounge offer a range of cocktail culture with rare scotch, vintage whiskey, flowing champagne, and craft cocktails.

Come together

The Great Room is the 4,400-square-foot meeting and event space.
