    New Hotel Opens in Belltown Neighborhood

Located in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, a half-mile from Pike Place Market and the Space Needle and 1 mile from the Washington State Convention Center, The Sound Hotel Seattle Belltown opened for business earlier this year. The hotel is the first Tapestry Collection by Hilton on the West Coast and offers 142 rooms and a 770-square-foot board/training room with room for up to 35 guests. The ground-level restaurant, Currant Bistro, features a menu of shareable plates developed by chef Jon Langley (formerly of Thackeray, Purple Café, and The Commons) and his culinary team. Some of the hotel’s rooms and all of its seventh-floor meeting and special event space offer unobstructed views of the Space Needle. A select number of guest rooms face a mural commissioned by local graffiti artist Weirdocult.

For more than 300 years, ranching has been a way of life—and business—in Texas. The uniquely Texan ranch experience has captured the imagination of the world, and ranches have served as uncredited “stars” for some of Hollywood’s most iconic productions: from Reata, the fictitious ranch depicted in the classic movie “Giant,” to the glamorous Southfork Ranch, home of the primetime soap opera “Dallas.” Longhorns, horses, cowboys, rodeos, 10-gallon hats and cowboy boots: There is an alluring mystique surrounding Texas ranches.

 

In November, Dallas-based Todd Interests opened Thompson Dallas, part of hospitality brand Thompson Hotels. Thompson Dallas features 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites, and two culinary destinations.

 

After a year filled with uncertainty and countless projects and proposals put on hold, growth in any sector of the hospitality industry is always welcome news. But a statewide slew of brand-new hotels? That’s something to celebrate. Here, we spotlight just a few of the new properties offering planners and guests new spots to meet, refresh and recharge.
