Known for its stylish and hip luxury accommodations, the W Seattle has long reigned as the city’s haven of urban hospitality. In an effort to sustain their reputation as a local trend-setter, Host Hotels & Resorts embarked on a complete refresh of this lifestyle brand’s high-rise retreat. MGAC was engaged to manage all phases of the multi-year upgrade, including ensuring revenue continuity throughout the complete reinvention of the high performing hotel. The renovations have encompassed the Living Room, bar, restaurant, ballrooms, and meeting rooms, all while the hotel remained fully operational. The project included a stainless steel shingle-clad fireplace, a new bar, the new Trace restaurant concept, and a sushi bar. MGAC provided construction oversight, budget and schedule control, selection and management of key design team members, and procurement and installation of furniture, fixtures, and equipment. After successfully completing the upgrades to the hotel’s public spaces, MGAC was invited back to manage the renovation of all 424 guestrooms and suites.
