Coast Bellevue Hotel’s new name, Hotel 116, comes as part of a $2 million renovation project designed by Seattle-based GGLO and renovated by Lynden-based contractor Elements Hospitality. In addition to the new name — and its accompany signage, which went up on Friday — updates to the 176-room property include exterior improvements, renovated bathrooms, new guestroom furnishings, a refreshed poolside area, and new landscaping. Renovations are currently under way, with completion expected mid-2017.

“We’re very excited to share the new look and feel of the property with our guests,” Hotel 116 General Manager John Matthews said in a press release. “As the anchor of a dynamic, exciting metropolis happening east of (Interstate) 405, we wanted to reconnect on a deeper level with the local community. We hope this deeper connection, new touches, and name change will make Hotel 116 a top lodging option for both business and leisure guests that are visiting Bellevue and the Northwest.”

With these contemporary renovations and a more modern name, Hotel 116, located at 625 116th Ave. NE, aims to appeal to the Eastside’s young-trending demographic.
