W Bellevue Debuts on Seattle’s Eastside

W Hotels Worldwide marked a new era of design for W Hotels in North America, with the opening of W Bellevue in Seattle’s Eastside Bellevue. Playing off the market’s tech-forward neighbors Microsoft and Amazon, and centuries-old traditions, the modern lodge oasis design of the hotel embraces the region’s juxtaposed affinity for both its natural surroundings and groundbreaking innovation.

The hotel pays homage to lakeside culture with cabin-like architecture, thoughtfully reimagined traditional décor, and locally-inspired cocktails and cuisine. Built as a W from the ground up, W Bellevue offers a modern, yet invitingly familiar setting, with 220 guest rooms and 25 suites in the newest Lincoln Square expansion.

“Throughout the brand’s nearly 20-year history, W has come to be known for reinvention,” says W Hotels Worldwide’s Anthony Ingham, who notes it is the first new-build W Hotel in North America in seven years.
