The hotel will also have a four-story surface parking structure, with public parking on the ground floor. Public area amenities will include a fitness center, full-service business center, breakfast area and guest laundry. The hotel will also have a pool and spa, an outdoor patio complete with fire pits and a sports court.

Los Angeles-based DLR Group will perform architecture for the hotel, and Seattle-based Degen & Degen will perform interior design.
