PAN PACIFIC SEATTLE
“Of Course…It’s Your Stay”
The recently opened Pan Pacific Seattle has set a new benchmark in Northwest hospitality.
Named as one of the “Hottest Hotels in 2007” by Conde Nast Traveler, the 160-room hotel is a focal point of the 2200 development at the gateway to Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.
With a concept of the “total stay experience,” Pan Pacific Seattle has introduced a new standard for excellence in the Pacific Northwest, designed to provide service and amenities focused and tailored for each individual guest.
Similar to the features found only at the world’s most sophisticated properties, the world-class hotel offers its guests the following “high concept” lifestyle appointments:
- Personal stewards who focus on delivering a new standard of individualized service. Whether it’s planning a full trip itinerary or simply arranging a few services, the personal stewards work with each guest to customize their stay. They are an extension of a highly trained team of associates dedicated to making each stay a memorable experience.
- Boasting the latest in business and entertainment technology, amenities include wired or wireless broadband connectivity throughout the entire property; a flexible in-room workspace with easy to access plugs; and 32” plasma TVs featuring Kool Connect technology, which lets guest watch (high definition television and movies) or listen (more than 40 radio channels) to what they want, when they want it. Innovative bathrooms feature a European size bathtub and glass enclosed shower plus a shoji screen-style wall to open the space into one large master suite.
- As Seattle’s new elite, urban destination, Pan Pacific Seattle features Hirsch Bedner designer guest rooms with city, Space Needle and Lake Union views and harmonious elegance; a modern “library” lounge offering the world’s finest Champagnes along with a full bar and light snacks; 24-hour private in-room dining; full service spa and fitness center; 5,405 square feet of Seattle’s most luxurious function space, including seven conference rooms, ideal for corporate meetings, parties and special events. Each features spectacular views with an abundance of natural light, the most advanced audio visual equipment, zebrawood accents and warm lighting, plus a professional event services team available to support all types of business and social gatherings.
Internationally known for personalized service and attention to detail, Pan Pacific Seattle integrates the hotel’s services with the condominium homes so that residents can take advantage of the exclusive luxuries usually reserved for hotel guests, including 24-hour room service, concierge, valet parking, pet concierge service, housekeeping and turn down service.
Minutes from downtown and within walking distance of Nordstrom’s flagship store, the new hotel is part of Vulcan’s 2200 development and is bordered by Westlake Avenue, Denny Way, Terry Avenue, Lenora Street and Ninth Avenue. The 550,000-square-foot mixed-use project features, in addition to the Pan Pacific Seattle, 261 condominium homes, two restaurants, Koot’s Green Tea, Starbucks, plus 39,000 square feet of retail shops, the luxury Vida Wellness Spa, a 16,000-square-foot landscaped plaza and a 47,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market®.
Recently introduced, in December 2007, the South Lake Union streetcar links South Lake Union to the rest of downtown Seattle and stops right at the front door of 2200 and Pan Pacific Seattle.
“As downtown’s epicenter continues to shift northward, South Lake Union is currently witnessing unprecedented momentum as more new residents, employees and retailers join the neighborhood as part of a truly sustainable, urban community full of 24-hour activity,” said Ada M. Healey, vice president of real estate for Vulcan Inc. “We’re delighted that Pan Pacific Seattle contributes to 2200’s success by bringing its world-class brand and reputation for delivering high quality, guest-focused service to its first Northwest U.S. location in Seattle.”
“Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts is thrilled to work with Vulcan to craft and operate a luxurious, five-star property in keeping with the dynamic, cosmopolitan lifestyle of this thriving city,” said Kevin Croley, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts.
“The revitalization of Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood provides a great opportunity for Pan Pacific Seattle to become a key component in the revitalization of the neighborhood. Our hotel is a perfect sister hotel to our other Pan Pacific properties in Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia.”
Vulcan owns approximately 60 acres in South Lake Union and is leading one of the largest urban revitalization efforts in the U.S. that will consist of nearly 10 million square feet upon completion. Its vision for the area is to partner with the community to foster a vibrant, connected neighborhood that blends new housing development with lively shops and restaurants, new offices and biotech research.
