Take a fresh look at the dynamically changing face of Seattle with Sheraton Grand Seattle

Since the angst and energy of the 1990s grunge music revolution put Seattle firmly on most people’s radars, the city has continued to blossom with a new generation of creative minds and an exciting entrepreneurial spirit, making it a beacon for startups. The freshly renovated Sheraton Grand Seattle provides an inspiring backdrop for businesses to meet in Emerald City.

Seattle has big business cred with the charm of a small city

Seattle is a vibrant, urban destination offering culture, entertainment and the infrastructure big business demands with a walkable downtown. While not quite Silicon Valley, it is a booming tech center, home to major corporations like Amazon, Microsoft, Boeing, Nordstrom and, of course, Starbucks®.

It’s a gateway to the great outdoors

Beyond Seattle’s thriving port, be inspired by natural beauty. The Cascade Mountains, Olympic Mountains and Mount Rainer, Puget Sound, Lake Washington and Lake Union are all in easy reach with exceptional outdoor activities like hiking, skiing and kayaking.

There’s creative energy in the city’s DNA

Beyond its music scene that spawned Nirvana and Pearl Jam, the city is abuzz with creative energy. Discover public art installations and street art in the alleys of Capitol Hill, Belltown and Fremont. The Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) designed by Frank Gehry celebrates the city’s art and music. Famed glass artist Dale Chihuly and his Pilchuck Glass School came to prominence here, and his work is on display in the Sheraton lobby.

It’s a foodie haven

Offering one of the country’s best culinary scenes, there’s no shortage of farm-to-table restaurants. Around Pike Place Market, try fresh-off-the-trawler seafood and organic produce. Don’t miss the original Starbucks, or visit their newest custom store located in the Sheraton Grand Seattle lobby. Here you’ll find chef Thierry Rautureau’s award-winning modern French restaurant, Loulay.

A gathering place that captures the essence of the city

The Sheraton Grand Seattle is right in the center of it all at 6th and Pike, by the Washington State Convention Center, and within blocks of the best of Seattle. Its redesign captures the essence of the city, with the décor in guestrooms and public spaces inspired by the region’s natural beauty, history and artistic community. The lobby features works by popular local artists and the hotel commissioned Ginny Ruffner to create the public art on the corner of 7th and Union.

The hotel’s 75,000 square feet (including 45 meeting rooms) of event space has been refreshed. Planners will appreciate the easy ground-floor load-in with direct ballroom access, the 21-foot-high ceilings, multiple rigging points and color-adjustable chandeliers of the 18,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom and its 1,300 capacity, naturally lit pre-function space for receptions or booths. Finally, it’s hard to beat the sweeping views on offer from the 35th-floor Cirrus Ballroom overlooking the skyline and Puget Sound. It’s from here you’ll see Seattle’s full potential.
