From May to July 2020, citizenM plans to open new hotels in Seattle, Geneva and Washington, D.C. The three debuts, totaling 660 guestrooms, will bring the owner-operator to 22 properties globally.

Next May, citizenM plans to open its first hotel in the West Coast, the 264-room citizenM Seattle South Lake Union. The seven-floor property will include four meeting rooms and a bar. The hotel will be located less than a mile from the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, as well as a 25-minute drive from Seattle-Tacoma Airport.

CitizenM expects to debut its second Swiss property, the 144-room citizenM Geneva Rue de Marche, the following month. The hotel, an adaptive-reuse project, will feature a public area wrapped around an internal courtyard.
