The Hyatt Regency Seattle — the Pacific Northwest’s largest hotel — is officially open.

Located on Howell Street in the heart of downtown near the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden, and Pike Place Market, this 45-story sky-grazer offers 1,260 guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, a premier fitness center, and a luxurious club lounge.

Upon entering, guests will notice elements that celebrate the environment, including photographs made by Seattle photographers and locally-inspired art, as well as an open concept that boasts natural light from expansive windows.

Keeping with the Pacific Northwest theme, the Hyatt Regency has multiple space options for meeting and events (103,000 square feet in total), all of which are named after bodies of water in Washington.

“Progress is all around us,” said Hyatt Regency Seattle General Manager Tom Wolf, in a statement. “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.”

When you visit, check out one of its three eateries: Andare, a fast-casual Italian-style restaurant; Daniel’s Broiler, an upscale steakhouse; and The Market, a 24-hour grab-and-go retailer with seating.

Hyatt Regency was built by developer R.C. Hedreen Company, in collaboration with LMN Architects and Sellen Construction Group.

The hotel is aiming for the second highest green building rating in the world, LEED Gold Certification, in 2019 with bathroom amenities that lessen plastic bottle waste, an efficient laundry system, and a light-colored roof that will reduce the urban heat-island effect — a phenomenon that occurs in metropolitan areas.
