Seattle’s been in a bit of a hotel boom the last few years, peaking this year with the addition of more than 1,200 rooms from a giant Hyatt Regency alone. But we saw some smaller openings this year, too, from Hotel Deca’s new life as Graduate Seattle to bubbly Moxy to the tandem project of fitness-themed Even and the more conventional Staybridge Suites.
Part of that, of course, is Seattle’s rapid tech expansion: People are traveling here a lot for business or to visit some of Seattle’s new residents. So a few of these hotels ended up in South Lake Union. But some new rooms (actually, the bulk of them, thanks to the Hyatt) cropped up in the very logical hotel neighborhood of downtown. The outlier is the latest chapter for the Robert Reamer-designed, Art Deco Edmond Meany hotel out in the University District.
Take a peek at the nearly 2,000 new rooms added to the Seattle hotel market this year. (And that doesn’t even include Tukwila!)
