Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle Downtown Pioneer Square is open for business and events. The 282-key, full-service hotel is located next to the King Street Station and features two towers, one with the main lobby, hotel amenities, rooms and suites, and the second housing the King St. grand ballroom, outdoor event terrace, indoor pool and leased office space. The hotel offers 17 room styles, from premium and penthouse suites to two-bedroom suites. Amenities include dining at Seattle’s iconic 13 Coins eatery and the inviting Zephyr lobby bar, in addition to a fitness center and complimentary made-to-order breakfasts in the morning and drinks and snacks each night. 

The hotel’s column-free, 7,433-square-foot King St. ballroom features high ceilings and natural light, and seats 545 theater-style. It includes a multiuse pre-function area with a built-in bar, registration office and skypad; an executive boardroom adjacent to a business center; a six-story atrium for welcome receptions; and a landscaped outdoor courtyard. 

When guests walk into the cathedrallike lobby of the new Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe, they’re greeted with a gasp-inducing view of “Big Blue” right outside the soaring window wall at the Great Room’s far end. No road or buildings block the vaulted panorama; the only objects between glass and water are a strip of vibrant golf-course green and a few scattered pines on a west-facing shoreline serving up peachy sunset views.
