The tallest building in the city of Tukwila — Hotel Interurban — opened last month, containing 185 guestrooms, 350 residential apartments for rent, and “Hazelnut,” a robot that makes deliveries to rooms.
The 19-story building towers over the south side of King County, sitting a few blocks from Westfield Southcenter Mall. Along with its guestrooms and apartments, the contemporary, modern hotel offers 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
An outdoor canopy made up of 60 solar panels that powers a majority of the first floor covers the entrance to Hotel Interurban. The two-story lobby is spacious and houses a custom art installation. Also on the first two floors are two food stops — Urban Roast, a quick stop snack and espresso bar; and Waterleaf Restaurant & Bar, a tasty sit-down restaurant that offers something for everyone.
Mike West, general manager of Hotel Interurban, is excited to share the new space with the community and visitors to the region.
“The busy summer travel season in the Northwest is upon us and Hotel Interurban is open just in time,” West said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming our first guests over the next few months and showing them first-in-class hospitality, along with the conveniences and personalized service they would expect from a modern boutique hotel.”
Each of the 185 guestrooms is furnished with custom-designed furniture, a 49-inch HDTV, a mini-refrigerator, and amazing LED-lighted mirrors. Many of the rooms also have picturesque views of Mount Rainier.
