Seattle hotel adds new meaning to 'room with a view'

This Seattle hotel is adding new meaning to "room with a view."

The Sound Hotel Seattle just opened its doors in Belltown and has added a new and artistic flare to some of their hotel rooms.

They commissioned local graffiti artist Weirdocult to paint a guestroom-facing brick wall in his "post-Internet hyper-realism style," turning those rooms into some of the most desirable ones in the hotel.

This art work aims to celebrate the sights, sounds and tastes that are unique to Seattle.

"The hotel’s design drew directly from the Belltown neighborhood’s deep roots in the arts and local music scene, mixed in with the natural beauty of the Puget Sound region,” said General Manager David Watkins, The Sound Hotel. “Warm, rich textures in our rooms offer visitors an authentic Northwest experience, while the artistic elements reflect Seattle as a bustling hive of creativity.”

The Sound Hotel occupies the first 10 floors of the 42-story Arrivé tower, one of the first for-rent mixed-use properties in the market.

Other features include the ground level restaurant Currant Bistro that boasts a menu of sharable plates developed by Chef Jon Langley (formerly of Thackeray, Purple Café, The Commons) and his culinary team.

So if you ever need a hotel room with some local artistic talent and expression -- here it is.
