The largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest has arrived, and it is fully prepped for meetings, special events, conventions and conferences. Located in the heart of downtown Seattle, just two blocks to the Washington State Convention Center, the much-anticipated 45-story Hyatt Regency Seattle has 1,260 guest rooms and 103,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

The hotel’s Columbia and Regency Ballrooms each offer 19,000-plus square feet of space with 24- and 30-foot high ceilings, respectively. Two junior ballrooms are also available: the Elwha Ballroom is 7,200 square feet, while Quinault Ballroom has 3,400 square feet of functional meeting space. For more intimate groups, the Deschutes Executive Boardroom features a private balcony and can accommodate 24 people. Eight prefunction spaces, illuminated by natural light, offer 4,292 to 7,022 square feet of space, while an additional 46 breakout rooms, ranging in size from 600 to 1,900 square feet, offer floor-toceiling windows.

All meeting rooms are outfitted with audiovisual equipment, multiple electrical, microphone and phone outlets, as well as blackout blinds and T1 high-speed internet with dedicated bandwidth capabilities.

Additional guest amenities include a StayFit Fitness Center, a Hyatt Regency Club lounge with fire pits and wraparound patio, and three dining options:

Andare, a fast-casual Italian-style trattoria that features a variety of homemade pasta dishes, salads and pizzas cooked in a woodburning oven

Daniel’s Broiler, an upscale steakhouse

The Market, a 24-hour premium grab-andgo retail space with café seating

Built by local developer R.C. Hedreen Company in collaboration with Seattlebased companies LMN Architects and Sellen Construction Group, the Hyatt Regency Seattle features design elements that celebrate the Pacific Northwest region. The Hyatt Regency Seattle is targeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification. In addition to its prime location within walking distance to the convention center, the hotel is adjacent to the site of The Summit, the planned convention center expansion building slated to open spring 2022.

The home of Rockford’s new entrepreneurial event space may date back to the 1920s, but Rockford City Market is primed to showcase future creatives and makers of all kinds.

When you're in the mountains, it’s truly difficult to be bored. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking and climbing, the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada know how to keep things interesting when it comes to outdoor activities. But sometimes, the best way to enjoy the mountains is to sit back and take in the expansive views. Take your meetings to the mountains without the heavy snow gear and winter boots by hosting your next event on a rooftop venue surrounded by breathtaking mountains.
