Expected to open in mid-2018, the premium, full service hotel will be located in Seattle’s Denny Triangle neighborhood at 8th and 9th Avenues between Stewart and Howell Streets in downtown Seattle.
“Developing a Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Seattle is consistent with our company’s objective to grow strategically in gateway destinations where our guests want us to be, and to do so with great owners and developers like R.C.

Hedreen, chairman, R.C.
