The 459-room Seattle Airport Marriott, which was recently acquired by AWH Partners, awarded management duties to Spire Hospitality.
The property is located in the SeaTac gateway, and Spire Hospitality will oversee renovations, incorporating the new Marriott guestroom package and an atrium reconfiguration. The updates will add meetings and special events space to the existing 15,000 square feet of space currently offered, and will cap off what was a renovation of the hotel’s public space, lobby and restaurant.
“With this agreement, Spire Hospitality now manages three prominent properties in the Seattle market and one in Portland, Ore., leveraging our resources and showcasing a strong foothold within the Pacific Northwest region,” said Bill DeForrest, president & CEO of Spire Hospitality. “Our team is honored and excited to expand our connection with the Marriott brand family on this property located in a thriving market.”
Spire Hospitality will operate the property under a franchise agreement with Marriott Hotels. With the addition of this hotel, Spire Hospitality now manages 6,293 rooms and nearly 400,000 square feet of meeting space.
The Seattle Airport Marriott is designed for business and leisure travelers, and provides access to Downtown and greater Seattle, the Museum of Flight and the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum. Hotel offerings include the Aqua Terra restaurant, an indoor atrium pool and a fitness center, as well as 14 meeting rooms.
Owned by AWH Partners, a privately held real estate investment, development and management firm, Spire Hospitality is a provider of management services for hotel owners and investors.
