Hyatt Regency Seattle

At the corner of 8th and Howell, the super-modern new Hyatt Regency Seattle opened its doors in December 2018. A convention-focused luxury business hotel, the 1,260-room Hyatt is now the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest.

I was in town to cover the Museum of Flight’s Destination Moon: The Apollo Mission media preview and Yuri’s Night Party ahead of the exhibit’s public opening on Saturday, April 13.

The Hyatt Regency Seattle is the Host Hotel for the Seattle Summer of Space, working alongside several local companies and attractions to offer promotions during the exhibit that runs through September 2, 2019.

I admire the hotel’s high ceilings, spacious lobby and sleek decor that carries right through to its guest rooms. Lighting fixtures, mirrors and desk area contain neutral tones to accompany the light wood accents.

My king-sized bed was super comfortable and offered sound sleeps, in contrast to the title of that infamous sleep-deprived Seattle film.

There’s no traditional room service but Andare Kitchen + Bar, a fast casual Italian restaurant on the second floor, has counter (and seated) service with the option to phone an order in and pick it up onsite.

Market to Go is open 24 hours serving coffees, pastries, sandwiches and local goods.

Also on the second floor you’ll find Daniel’s Broiler, serving up USDA Prime steaks and freshly-caught seafood. A variety of quality spirits and an award-winning wine list are here to pair your meal within both the restaurant and adjacent piano bar.

The eighth-floor Hyatt Loyalty Club Lounge serves breakfast, all-day snacks (including killer popcorn), sodas and water plus an honour bar during happy hour.

The lounge has a lovely wraparound deck for warmer weather with a lot of comfy seating and work spaces inside. This space became my go-to spot for breakfasts, mid-afternoon coffee, snacks and light dinners.

On the same floor is a fully outfitted fitness center (open 24/7) with wall-to-ceiling windows and all the machines you could ask for with a view.

Hyatt Regency Seattle is also just a two-block walk from the Washington State Convention Center, where the QuickShuttle bus drops off and loads up passengers to and from Vancouver (taking about the same amount of time as an international flight including going through customs, but far more convenient).

You’re right in the heart of the city, within a mile of the Space Needle, Museum of Pop Culture, Chihuly Garden and Glass, Pike Place Market, Belltown, plus dozens of shops, restaurants, cafés and theatres.

I was hosted by Hyatt Regency Seattle in coordination with Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission at the Museum of Flight. Opinions, as always, remain my own. Unwatermarked images courtesy of Hyatt Hotels.
