New Downtown Hotel for Washington State Convention Center Addition
The first of its kind to be completed by the firm and is the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle, Washington – April 10th, 2019 – LMN Architects is pleased to announce the completion of the new Downtown Seattle Hotel. The project is a full-service hotel and meetings venue managed by Hyatt Hotels composed of 1,260 rooms, and numerous amenities including ballrooms and restaurants. The design synthesizes a variety of urban influences and scales into a mixed-use architectural collage inspired by its position at the intersection of Seattle’s primary commercial and high-rise residential neighborhood adjacent to the new Washington State Convention Center Expansion.
Stephen Van Dyck, Design Partner, comments: “Beyond its scale and the complexity of its program components, the building redefines the role of the large
urban hotel within the city. Through a refined and minimal material palette, and great attention to proportion and scale throughout, the architecture puts people
and events at the center of the experience. With its unique form, minimalist exterior surfaces and crafted interior spaces, the building is also a new beacon within the downtown core.”
An 8-story podium is the base for the 500-foot tall hotel tower and covers most of a city block with 103,000 square feet of meeting and ballroom spaces, ground-level retail and an art-filled hotel lobby that welcomes visitors and guests.
