Hilton has announced plans to add its third US property under the luxury LXR Hotels and Resorts brand.

Hotel 1000 in Seattle had previously been owned and operated by Loews Hotels, but has been acquired by Lighthouse Investments and ESI Ventures with equity financing from Kildare Partners, and will be reflagged under the LXR brand in August.

The 120-room hotel is located at the intersection of First Avenue and Madison Street, next to the city’s waterfront in downtown Seattle. The property features All Water Seafood and Oyster Bar, a spa and fitness centre, and seven events spaces as well as an “all-weather greenhouse terrace”.

Hilton launched its LXR Hotels and Resorts brand in 2018, and added its first US property earlier this year.

A second US hotel (Crockfords) was recently unveiled within the Resorts World Las Vegas complex, which also features properties under the Conrad and Hilton Hotels and Resorts brands.

Commenting on the news Feisal Jaffer, global head, LXR Hotels and Resorts, said:

“As the debut LXR Hotels and Resorts property in the Pacific Northwest, Hotel 1000 signals Hilton’s commitment to expanding our luxury portfolio in sought-after urban and resort destinations.

“During the course of 2021, we will welcome five hand-picked new members to the LXR collection, a testament to our focus on curating a selection of independent hotels and resorts that offer a bespoke experience for our discerning guests and drive superior returns for our owners.

“LXR embraces properties with unique aesthetic and design, while amplifying their position within the destination as an authentic immersive experience.”
