Embassy Suites by Hilton announced the opening of a new hotel located in Pioneer Square, Seattle. The bright and modern Embassy Suites by Hilton Seattle Downtown Pioneer Square is located near the center of attractions, including Pike Place Market, Pier 55 and the Seattle Art Museum. The property is also a short walk from various sporting locations like CenturyLink Field and Safeco Field.

“We are excited to add this property to our portfolio, located at the hub of the largest transit oriented development on the West Coast,” said Alan Roberts, global head, Embassy Suites by Hilton. “With an increase in visitors per the last recorded year, Seattle continues to be a leading destination in the west, and the downtown location provides the ideal opportunity to expand our brand’s offerings in this dynamic city.”

Guests staying at the hotel can enjoy Northwest food and drink favorites in the Zephyr Bar, as well as indulge in free made-to-order breakfast and complimentary drinks and appetizers daily at the Evening Reception. Amenities include a health club with an indoor pool, exercise room and sun deck, six-story atrium lobby, upper work loft and outdoor courtyard.

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.
