Hyatt Regency Seattle opened with 1,260 guest rooms and more than 103,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The property is the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest and located just two blocks from the Washington State Convention Center and adjacent to The Summit, the planned convention center expansion building slated to open Spring 2022.
The 45-story Hyatt Regency Seattle's 1,260 guest rooms all feature floor-to-ceiling windows and a collection of black-and-white photography, shot by six Seattle-based photographers, highlighting the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest region.
“Progress is all around us,” said Tom Wolf, general manager of Hyatt Regency Seattle. “No other addition to Seattle’s vastly updated cityscape is more important for Seattle tourism than the new, very visible contemporary building right in the middle of town: Hyatt Regency Seattle. With the opening of the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest this year, Seattle will finally have the meeting space options it needs.”
Consistent with the Pacific Northwest theme throughout the property, meeting and event spaces are named after bodies of water located throughout Washington state:
- The Columbia and Regency Ballrooms each offer over 19,000 square feet of space with 24- and 30-foot high ceilings, respectively.
- Two junior ballrooms: Elwha Ballroom is 7,200 square feet, while Quinault Ballroom has 3,400 square feet of functional meeting space.
- The high-end Deschutes Executive Boardroom, featuring a private balcony that can accommodate 24 people.
- Eight prefunction spaces, each ranging from 4,292 to 7,022 square feet, which are flooded in natural light.
- An additional 46 meeting rooms, ranging from 600 to 1,900 square feet, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows.
- All meetings rooms are outfitted with audiovisual equipment, multiple electrical, microphone and phone outlets, as well as blackout blinds and T1 high-speed Internet with dedicated bandwidth capabilities.
The new Hyatt Regency Seattle also offers guests three on-site dining experiences:
- Andare, a fast-casual Italian-style trattoria, which features a variety of homemade pasta dishes, salads and pizzas cooked in a wood-burning oven
- Daniel’s Broiler, an upscale and locally renowned steakhouse owned by Schwartz Bros. Restaurants, which features USDA Prime steaks, seafood, an extensive wine list and a vast collection of whiskeys, as well as a piano bar
- The Market, a 24-hour premium grab-and-go retail space with café seating, where guests can purchase freshly prepared hot and cold food and beverage items.
Hyatt Regency Seattle is targeting LEED Gold Certification in 2019, which is the second highest green building rating in the world. As part of their efforts, the hotel has incorporated many sustainable elements into its guest amenities and overall design, including large-format bath amenities in each guest room bathroom, a light-colored roof to reduce the urban heat-island effect and a highly efficient laundry system that captures both heat and water after use to reduce the need for additional energy to preheat incoming water.
