Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle Announces Guestroom Renovations and Plans for One Bedroom Suites
Published Date : 14 Nov 2011
Major design and technology investments come after 5 years of operation
(Seattle, WA – November 14, 2011) – Today, the Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle, a 160-room property located in Seattle’s South Lake Union district, announced that it will be transforming 14 guestrooms into seven luxurious one bedroom suites.
These superior suites will be ideal for travelers seeking a complete luxury experience during their stay, or for businesses looking for the perfect venue for an intimate yet high-end executive board meeting.
This announcement quickly follows Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle’s 5th year anniversary and recent accolades for community service and commitment to sustainability from the Washington Lodging Association.
“The one bedroom suites will be an exciting addition to the hotel,” said David Sullivan, general manager for Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle. “After a great five years we are looking forward to offering our guests an even larger array of luxury and sustainable options during their stays with us.”
Under the direction of Dawson Design Associates, Inc., the 14 rooms are being completely transformed and renovated with new furnishing, carpets, sheers and technology so the richness of the Pacific is brought to life in every one of the suites. The blend of guest experiences echoes the hotel’s commitment to sustainability and innovative technology.
The suites will offer first class furniture and an array of modern technologies suitable for any luxury experience. With dining tables for either six or eight people in each suite, the rooms lend themselves well for private meetings, or simply an incredible in-room dining experience provided by the hotel from the award winning Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar.
In-suite technologies include Teleadapt’s ™ Media Hubs that enables guests to stream HD video content from their iPod, iPhone, iPad, gaming console or laptop to the hospitality grade 55” LG 1080p LCD panels. Guests will also be able to enjoy their own music library from any Bluetooth enabled device wirelessly over the Monitor Audio™ speaker system.
Evoking a natural sense of the environment, the suites will be adorned with ‘Big Bang Chandeliers’ by Foscarini and custom wood wall paneling. The Space Needle Corner Suites will have sliding wall panels in the style of grey distressed driftwood allowing the guest to open the room. From the Master bedroom, guests will be able to take full advantage of the sweeping views of the Space Needle and South Lake Union. Soft goods are provided by award winning manufacturers and exquisite designers such as Bentley Price Street, Cassoni and Janus et Cie.
In addition to the in-room tech features, the hotel’s award-winning sustainability program – PanEarth – will also have an in-room presence. All rooms are provided with recycling bins, all unused soap is donated to the international charity, Clean the World, and additional unused toiletries donated to the local YWCA.
Other enhanced amenities in each of the suites include: bath caddies for the European oversized soaking tubs with loofas and bathsalts, live plants, orchid flowers, slippers, high-end hair dryers, crystal glassware, and overnight shoe shine with turn down service. Each guest will receive a manager escort upon check in.
A complimentary weekend stay in one of the newly renovated suites will be raffled off on January 1 following the month-long food/warm coat/toiletry drive for YouthCare’s Orion Center. The month-long event will kick off at the Pan Pacific’s Annual Holiday Tree Lighting event and 5th Anniversary Celebration on December 1 at 5:30 pm. Visitors simply need to donate an item for the drive at any of the participating 2200 Plaza retailers and they will be entered to win a weekend stay that includes dinner for two at Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar.
