Grand Hyatt Seattle exudes urban luxury with a modern design style. Clear wavy glass sculptures that stretch from the floor to the ceiling in the lobby separate the reception and concierge desks from comfortable seating areas with gray- and cream-colored armchairs and patterned sofas. Geometric copper, cream and blue area rugs add a soft touch to the light marble floors. Modern popular music plays throughout the public areas, and abstract silver and white light fixtures as well as windows looking out to the gray marble porte cochere brighten the space. Behind the reception desk, cut-out squares glow from vibrant electric blue and purple to softer green and orange, creating a shifting atmosphere fitting of the always active city streets outside.
The design style of Grand Hyatt Seattle gives a nod to the hotel’s urban setting. This starts with the sleek, glass-and-steel shell of the exterior. Inside, modern touches such as shining marble and travertine, generous uses of wood and warm color selections are spread throughout the building. The hotel has notes of the art deco movement with wide arching ceilings in hallways, triangular wall scones and curving metal handrails on bathroom counters. But even with the presence of all these other styles, Grand Hyatt Seattle is also Scandinavian in its influence, with clean lines and some minimalistic — but posh — design choices throughout the hotel.
