Design Achievement - The two towers of the Westin Seattle have made an impression on Seattle's skyline since 1969 when the first tower was constructed followed by a second tower in 1982. DLR Group's design of the renovation updates the guest experience to maintain the Westin's standing as a preeminent AAA Four Diamond award-winning downtown hotel. New FF&E in all rooms give guests simple, comfortable, elegant accommodations that take advantage of striking views around the entirety of the building. Renovation of the restaurant into the Relish Burger Bistro offers guests a hip dining option, and conversion of former restaurant space into new meeting rooms allows the Westin to host additional group functions. In emphasizing Westin's goals for user comfort, well-being, and enjoyment, the design of this transformation helps effect Westin brand loyalty to make sure people want to return again and again to the Westin experience.
Scope Summary - The scope of work for the Westin Seattle renovation encompasses upgrades to all 891 guest rooms and nine suites, including FF&E updates, restrooms updates, ADA improvements, and MEP updates. Improvements to public spaces include finish upgrades in all guest room corridors; conversation of former restaurant space on the first three floors into 13,500 SF of new meeting space; renovation of existing kitchen space into a new three-meal restaurant; and a new barista stand. DLR Group provided architecture and engineering services.
