Starwood’s W Seattle hotel has completed a multi-million dollar renovation of its rooms, public areas and meeting space.
All 415 rooms have been redesigned, along with the property’s nine suite, with interiors evoking “a sense of the ultimate ‘urban lodge’ through design that captures the innovative spirit of Seattle”.
Design features include a colour palette “derived from the blue hues of Seattle, with pops of purple, teal and yellow gold incorporated into a grey canvas inspired by the city’s infamously moody skies”, and details “Seattle’s storied aviation history”, such as polished, aerodynamic shapes for wall and desk lighting, and a Boeing 747 model kit pattern on throw blankets.
Upon entering the hotel guests are greeted by wooden ‘lodge poles’ (inspired by the Northwest’s Native American culture) and tree-ring flooring (a nod to the city’s logging industry), alongside a DJ booth crafted from an airplane turbine.
The property will also soon be home to W’s first Sound Suite in North America, offering a private music studio and writer’s room for recording artists, musicians and guests.
W Hotels recently announced plans to open its first Scottish property, as part of the Edinburgh St James retail and residential development.
