W Bellevue Opens With a Blend of Rustic and Tech

The Living Room at W Bellevue has exposed A-frame beams that line the ceiling

W Bellevue has opened in Washington State as the company’s first U.S. new build in seven years. The vibe here is a mix of modern and rustic, meant to meld the local tech industry vibe with the Cascade Mountains just outside. As a result, the hotel’s Living Room has exposed A-frame beams that line the ceiling, and The Porch resembles a lake house dock (think porch swings and fireplaces). We love that The Library’s shelves are filled with well curated books from the area’s local bookstores.    

Good to know: Most guestrooms have glass showers in the middle of each room. Feeling playful? The 2,300-square-foot, two-bedroom Extreme WOW Suite has two king beds, with one hanging from the ceiling, a surround-sound audio system (vinyls included), an in-room pool, a poker table and a retractable flat-screen TV.
