The Downtown Seattle metro area has not seen any hotels break ground in the past two years, and there are no current plans for any to go under construction in the next upcoming months. But according to the Seattle Times, all that might change this year, with current hotels having successful bookings, with little trouble filling rooms, and they’re able to have consistently higher rates. Developers are feeling more confident with those statistics in place, and are moving forward by proposing more hotels pop up in the downtown area.
According to the Times, one of those proposals includes a hotel with
1,200+ rooms, which is larger than any hotel in the area except for the
Seattle Sheraton hotel. If all of the projects presented were to be
built, the Seattle hotel industry would increase by more than 15 percent.
Developers like Touchstone, Kauri, and Daniels Development
among others all have projects in various stages of planning for
construction, and Seattleites looking for hotel living should keep an
eye out for upcoming hotel projects that include apartment rentals or sales planned
into the space as well. For more information on upcoming projects in the
Downtown Seattle area, visit the Seattle Times.
