Known for its exceptional location just steps from Pike Place Market and stunning views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains, the Seattle Marriott Waterfront just raised its group appeal by refreshing its lobby and meeting spaces with new furnishings, artwork and technical capabilities.
The 358-room hotel near Pike Place Market now greets guests with a warm and inviting lobby highlighted by a towering blown glass statue reflecting the rich palette of the Seattle sunset. Additions include a distinctive fireplace and cozy venues for work or play.
The downtown Seattle hotel offers 11,354 square feet of renovated meeting space with comfortable contemporary furnishings, whimsical artwork and an uplifting blue and gray color scheme reminiscent of the waterfront. The space is accented by illuminated Italian fused-glass panels and custom sconces by Seattle-based artist Julie Conway.
“We want our hotel to be an extension of its breathtaking location,” said General Manager David Dolquist. “From the décor with its picture-perfect views to the marketplace cuisine to the friendliness of our staff, the Seattle Marriott Waterfront represents the best of Seattle. Whether guests are here on business or leisure, we want them to enjoy an authentically local experience.”
The Seattle, Washington, hotel’s 15 meeting rooms range from the Executive Boardroom, newly crowned with a dramatic chandelier, to the elegant Grand Pacific Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 900 guests. Seamlessly blending form with function, the meetings rooms feature state-of-the-art audio and visual technology.
Additionally, the Seattle Waterfront hotel’s pre-function space has been redesigned in the great room vein with communal seating clusters to encourage collaborative genius.
Groups will enjoy a delicious taste of Seattle with banquet menus showcasing regional and international cuisine. Recognising that food should be fun, the Seattle hotel has designed themed breaks including the cinema-inspired “Big Picture,” “Sweetness in Seattle” and “Afternoon Siesta,” which features a variety of authentic Mexican specialties. The hotel team can also lead groups on a tasty team-building session to Pike Place Market, where they will meet local artisans and farmers before cooking and enjoying a meal incorporating the freshest flavors in Seattle.
