SEATTLE May 9, 2017 – Motif Seattle, A Destination Hotel, announces the unveiling of a comprehensive $10 Million guestroom redesign. The makeover includes all 319 guestrooms of the design-driven boutique hotel, as well as enhancements to its corridors, giving the property a sleek urban style while maintaining a residential comfort. The fresh redesign is distinctive to the Seattle market, complete with striking art walls that serve as bold representations of the Seattle cultural scene and artwork all created by local artists.

“Motif Seattle’s design aesthetic and ethos reflect this beautiful city, with thoughtful details waiting to be discovered throughout the property,” said Shannon Sheron, General Manager of Motif Seattle, A Destination Hotel. “We wanted to bring the experience of Seattle to life through this bold new design and show off what makes Motif Seattle a unique experience for our guests.”

Throughout the design materials local to the area were used, such as natural woods from the Pacific Northwest, reflecting a light and welcoming ambiance. Seattle weather was another thoughtful consideration applied to the design by creating a “rainy day corner” in each guestroom that serves as a welcome point for visitors upon arrival to hang their outdoor gear. Enhanced lighting and high-end bath finishes bring luxury touches to further enhance the guest experience and create a residential feel.

With Motif Seattle’s brand pillars of design, fashion, community and music as inspiration, bespoke artwork was commissioned by local Seattle artists for each guestroom to visually reflect the various elements of Seattle’s cultural fabric. In one such work, the edges of a local Seattle musician’s album spines were woven together to create a piece of abstract art. The hotel’s corridors boast large scale photographic abstractions of Seattle landmarks. The result is a work true to Motif’s nature: refined, with an urban flair.

The new design also lends itself as a platform for Motif’s Visiting Artist Program. Every year, the hotel collaborates with a local artist to design a new motif (“mo•tif: a decorative design or pattern”), which is then reflected in the hotel’s stationery, envelopes, guest amenities, key cards, and more. 

Motif Seattle is downtown Seattle’s premier independent hotel, just steps from the city’s top attractions. The property enjoys deep connections with the local arts, fashion, music and culinary scenes and strives to connect its guests with its local community. Motif Seattle is also home to the wildly popular restaurant Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails, which boasts one of the best rooftop bars in the country as voted by USA Today several years in a row. The property features a dedicated meeting and conference facility with over 22,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, and a fitness center with the health-conscious client in mind.
