LXR Hotels & Resorts Reveals Plans to Enter Seattle
Hotel 1000 to debut in August as part of Hilton’s luxury collection brand
SEATTLE - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) has signed an agreement with the new owners of Hotel 1000 in Seattle. Lighthouse Investments and ESI Ventures with equity financing from Kildare Partners acquired Hotel 1000 last month and plan to transition the property to LXR Hotels & Resorts, in August. LXR Hotels & Resorts feature a selection of unrivaled luxury properties that thrive independently, each providing a unique and locally immersive experience. The collection was developed based on demand for top-tier properties that retain their unique identity and market prominence in the luxury space, and that are backed by the strength of the Hilton enterprise and its award-winning Honors program.
“As the debut LXR Hotels & Resorts property in the Pacific Northwest, Hotel 1000 signals Hilton’s commitment to expanding our luxury portfolio in sought-after urban and resort destinations,” said Feisal Jaffer, global head, LXR Hotels & Resorts. “During the course of 2021, we will welcome five hand-picked new members to the LXR collection, a testament to our focus on curating a selection of independent hotels and resorts that offer a bespoke experience for our discerning guests and drive superior returns for our owners. LXR embraces properties with unique aesthetic and design, while amplifying their position within the destination as an authentic immersive experience.”
Located at the intersection of First Avenue and Madison Street, Hotel 1000 is ideally situated in Downtown Seattle just steps from the waterfront along Elliott Bay, and is one of the most conveniently placed hotels in the Waterfront district near Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, and the bustling shopping and business districts. The thoughtfully designed 120-room hotel allows guests to take in panoramic views of the Seattle skyline from their rooms featuring its signature pedestal bathtubs, glass showers, and custom residential furnishings.
Property highlights include its destination restaurant and bar, All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar featuring fresh, local seafood and an impressive wine cellar showcasing regional wines. The hotel offers multiple premium amenities and comforts along with a full-service spa and fitness center, sauna, and salon. The property also features seven flexible event rooms, a boardroom and an all-weather greenhouse terrace which adds up to 9,100 square feet of meeting and event space for guests to create memorable gatherings of all sizes and occasions.
