Add a new neighbor to the menu of feisty Biscuit Bitch in Seattle’s Belltown district. Charter Hotel, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, is planning a $52 million, sixteen-story, 229-room chic hotel at Second Avenue and Stewart Street. Charter Hotel will offer a full-service restaurant, meeting space as well as a top floor lounge and outdoor terrace. Construction is expected to be completed February 2018.
Swiss Hotel Leavenworth
BMI will build the hotel under the name Swiss Hotel Leavenworth. Plans call for the 24,000-square-foot structure to be built on 3 acres adjacent to Safeway at the east entrance of town. Amenities will include an indoor pool, meeting rooms, breakfast facilities, ski-gear storage areas and around ninety-five parking spaces.
This new sleek Westin concept puts business travelers about a mile from Microsoft headquarters and close to Boeing and other corporate entities. The 131-room hotel offers extended-stay accomodations, too. Part of the Starwood Hotels company, Element Redmond is part of a 28-acre, mixed-use development, Esterra Park. The hotel is expected to open May 25.
