Hyatt Hotels announced that the Hyatt Regency Seattle opened its doors to guests on Monday. The 1,260-room hotel is the city’s largest by room count, surpassing the Sheraton Grand Seattle by 24 rooms, and will serve as a headquarters hotel for the Washington State Convention Center.

All guest rooms and suites in the contemporary 45-story structure have floor-to-ceiling windows, 65” flatscreen televisions, and a cream-and-tan décor. The guest rooms are adorned with black-and-white photographs of the Pacific Northwest by six Seattle-area photographers.

Amenities include a fitness center and a Hyatt Regency Club lounge with fire pits and a patio that offers views of the city.

Guests have three dining options: Daniel’s Broiler, a steakhouse that features a large bar area with a piano bar; Trattoria Andare, which serves pizza and pasta, and a grab-and-go-market with café seating.

The new hotel offers a total of 103,000 square feet (9,569 square meters) of meeting and event space including two 19,000-square-foot (1,765-square-meter) ballrooms, two junior ballrooms, and 46 meeting rooms that range from 600 to 1,900 square feet (56 to 177 square meters) in size.  The Deschutes Executive Boardroom can accommodate up to 24 people and features a private balcony.

The hotel was designed to be energy efficient and is seeking LEED Gold Certification. It has a light-colored roof to reduce the urban heat-island effect, an energy-efficient laundry system that recaptures water and heat after use that is then used to preheat incoming water, and offers shampoo, soap, and conditioner in large bottles in each guest room to reduce the waste generated by the use of miniature bottles.

The Hyatt Regency Seattle is adjacent to the new convention center expansion building, called the Summit, which will open in 2022 and is within walking distance from major attractions including the Pike Place Market and the Space Needle.
