The Summer Travel Spotlight: Seattle, Washington!
Seattle is a stunning summer destination to put on the itinerary! From the cute vintage shops to the dynamic fish and farmers markets filled with fresh fruits, flowers, and there’s energy so vibrant you can’t help but feel the buzz.
The melodic tunes of musicians can be heard on every corner as you stroll around. This city boasts an extensive roster of famous musicians, from Jimi Hendrix, to Heart, and Nirvana, just to name a few. Maybe it could be something in the coffee or the majestic mountainous backdrop that leaves artists so inspired to create.
Bringing the vibe of art, music, and culture together, W Hotels partnered with Billboard to host a chic extravaganza, with none other than the talented Bebe Rexha performing an outstanding acoustic set, ushering in the newly renovated Seattle location.
Yummy exotic margaritas distributed to guests paired with mouth-watering tapas from their world-class chefs while everyone danced the night away.
Being the idea driven, the tech-centric city it is, it would only be appropriate to have a state-of-the-art recording studio on the top floor of Seattle’s W for artists to create music. The recording studio is still being build and said to finish in the next few months.
The rooms tied into a nature cabin like theme with music nuances sprinkled about for the real W Hotel’s rock star clientele. Put W Hotels of Seattle on the list for you next weekend adventure trip.
