IHG to Open New Hotel in Bellevue Tech Hub

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) reports that is developing a new InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property in Bellevue, Washington, a part of the Seattle metropolitan area that’s home to some major tech companies. Developed by Bellevue-based Fortress Development, the new-build hotel is expected to open in Q4 2021 and will be part of a luxury, two-tower mixed-use development called Avenue Bellevue. Construction is scheduled to begin in the middle of this year. 

The development will be near the center of downtown Bellevue, on the northwest corner of Bellevue Way and NE 8th Street. The InterContinental Bellevue at The Avenue hotel will have 252 guest rooms, as well as two bars and a restaurant from the team behind Buddakan NYC. For events, the property will have 14,250 square feet of meeting space, including a grand ballroom and a junior ballroom, with other amenities including a business center, a full-service spa, and a fitness center.

The new property will be the first InterContinental hotel in the Pacific Northwest and will continue IHG’s expansion on the West Coast, following recent hotel openings in downtown Los Angeles and San Diego

The hotel will occupy the first 11 floors of Avenue Bellevue’s 26-story south tower. The Avenue Bellevue development will also include 332 luxury residences and 85,000 square feet of high-end retail, food and nightlife, including the sealife-focused restaurant, Angler, from three-Michelin-star chef Joshua Skenes. Ninety-eight of the residences will occupy the floors of the south tower above the hotel, with the remainder in a 25-story west tower across the way. 

Bellevue is notable for the presence of a number of major tech companies. Expedia is headquartered in the area, and Amazon and Microsoft also have offices there. Also nearby is Lake Washington, as well as a number of other cultural attractions.
