Spire Hospitality to manage the Seattle Airport Marriott

Seattle Airport Marriott

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.”
