Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle’s Southport is now open for business. The only waterfront hotel within 10 miles of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the 12-story, 347-room hotel is located on the southeastern shore of Lake Washington in Renton, Washington. The hotel features 60,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space. The rooms and event space were designed with feng shui principles in mind and feature Lake Washington, Cascade Mountain, Mt. Rainier and Seattle skyline views.


The hotel’s meeting and event space includes two ballrooms and nine flexible meeting rooms equipped with 1 GB fiber optic-enabled data speeds, premium audiovisual equipment and a dedicated events team. The Grand Ballroom is more than 14,000 square feet and offers floor to ceiling windows. The Lake Washington Ballroom is nearly 5,000 square feet and has an adjoining 11,000-square-foot terrace with lake, city and mountain views. The outdoor event terrace extends 23,000 square feet for receptions and gatherings.

Additional amenities include free Wi-Fi, a 24-hour StayFit gym, dedicated yoga room, indoor saline pool and an on-site, full service spa. There is also the on-site, lakeside restaurant, Water’s Table, offering Northwest-inspired Pan-Asian cuisine. Private dining is also available.

The hotel is seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certification. Environmentally friendly features include an energy-conserving daylight sensor lighting system, waste-reducing on-tap local Northwest wines, a green-friendly vendor preference program, and a recycling initiative that includes mixed-use and compost.

The Addition, also known as Summit, at the Seattle Convention Center (recently renamed from the Washington State Convention Center) is making steady progress toward completion. With only months of construction remaining, interior details are quickly taking shape. In other progress, construction has begun on the codevelopment office project by its new owner, Hudson Pacific Properties Inc. (HPP).


Ideal for events ranging from birthday dinners to corporate meetings, Spinasse’s newly acquired and renovated room with a private entrance sits on Pine Street in Seattle, adjacent to the restaurant’s main entryway on 14th Ave. The intimate and charming private dining room can seat up to 40 people and offers special events throughout the year from cooking classes to winemaker lunches. 


Washington’s Vancouver Waterfront development project will be getting a big boost this summer with the opening of two long-awaited hotels. The 138-room Hotel Indigo is scheduled to open in late June or early July while the 150-room AC Hotel by Marriott is looking to make its debut on June 15 at the Port of Vancouver’s adjacent Terminal 1. A 10-story condominium building, Residences at Kirkland Tower, is planning an October opening and will be attached to Hotel Indigo.
