A Hyatt Hotels Corporation affiliate entered into a management agreement with SECO Development for a Hyatt Regency hotel in Renton, Wash. Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle's Southport is currently under construction and is expected to open in 2017.
The 12-story Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle's Southport is situated on a 5.5-acre lakefront site on Lake Washington. The hotel has 347 rooms, including 31 suites, and the property's design will include terrace gardens, glass art wall structures and local art. Hotel guests will also have direct access to Lake Washington and the adjacent 57-acre Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park, which has nature trails and numerous other recreational activities.
The hotel will offer approximately 43,000 square feet of meeting and pre-function space, including a 15,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, a junior ballroom and eight additional break out rooms. A residentially inspired display kitchen will be integrated directly within the guest event area. For events al fresco, planners and guests can take their meetings outside to the hotel's expansive outdoor, Northwest garden-landscaped event terraces of up to 12,000 square feet that overlook Lake Washington. Event facilities also include private salons and lounges, ideal for weddings and other events. Among the space features are changing facilities, full length mirrors, fully-stocked vanities and restrooms.
