IHG New Hotels Opening
Date Posted: 03/05/2018
Seattle is one of the most popular travel destinations within the United States. The city offers a huge range of things to see and do from admiring the view from the top of the Space Needle looking out towards the snow-capped peak of Mt. Rainier, to wandering around Pike Place Market on the waterfront of Puget Sound. Seattle is not just a holiday destination it’s a huge hub for business too.
Seattle is home to some of the biggest corporations in the world, such as online shopping giant Amazon, coffee giant Starbucks, technology company Microsoft and for us aviation geeks Seattle is also home to The Boeing Corporation.
Seattle is split into many areas with most of the popular tourist attractions located in the Downtown area, don’t let the name put you off. Downtown Seattle would have to be one of the “go to” places when visiting. The Space Needle takes prime position with the Museum of Pop Culture, Pacific Science Centre and the Chihuly Glass and Garden all within walking distance, located in the Seattle Centre precinct. Lake Union is an area which is situated right next to Downtown, making it a perfect spot to spend a few nights of accommodation overlooking Lake Union, and also being so close to all the attractions.
The Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG) has a huge presence in Seattle with over 21 properties to choose from right across the state. Late last week IHG announced that an additional two hotels have just opened their doors in Downtown Seattle with each one of these newly opened hotels catering for a different type of traveller.
