W Seattle has commenced a renovation of the hotel’s “Living Room,” Bar and Restaurant with the closure of its first floor public spaces.
The 26-floor W Seattle, featuring 424 guest rooms and 11 meeting spaces--inluding a 4,554-square-foot ballroom--is situated in the heart of the city’s financial, retail and entertainment district, crowned by an illuminated steel and mesh pyramid visible throughout the city. W Seattle’s first floor is being concealed from public viewing during the three months of construction; however guests are able to catch a glimpse of the hotel’s future via a custom-created Peek-a-Booth, an interactive kiosk and video experience located near the property’s welcome desk.
The hotel’s dramatic re-opening is planned for early March 2012 and upon completion, W Seattle will reveal TRACE, the hotel’s new restaurant and bar.
Said Tom Limberg, general manager of the hotel, “At W it is all about what’s new, what’s next, so naturally we are thrilled with the complete re-imagining of our restaurant, bar and Living Room space. While it is a tad premature to offer up specific details, I am able to both repeat and reiterate our original pre-opening promise, ‘Worth the Wait.'”
