How do you build a hotel for urban millennials?

The Astra Hotel in the South Lake Union neighborhood provides business travelers immediate access to Seattle's tech epicenter, including Amazon, Meta, and Google. With over 50,000 employed in the South Lake Union neighborhood and 5,000 employees in the building 16 feet away from the project, this 15-story red brick and metal-clad building has been designed and programmed with urban millennials in mind. It is also conveniently located to access downtown Seattle favorites, including the Seattle Center, Museum of Pop Culture, Seattle Convention Center, and the Climate Pledge Arena.

The 267 key Astra Hotel is a member of the Marriott Tribute Portfolio, distinguished by its captivating design that creates a vibrant social scene for guests and locals. This hotel's immersive and experiential art installations aim to capture the tech-savvy yet creative, innovative spirit of 1960s Seattle. Many shared spaces include floor-to-ceiling windows to invigorate guests with natural light. Upon entering the lobby, Sparky, the hotel's robotic butler, might greet guests with a joke or refreshments. The lobby also features two of the hotel's convenient food and beverage offerings: Caffe Ladro and Otium Grill & Greens.

The hotel boasts extensive amenities, including 7,500 square feet of event space, seven (7) meeting and event rooms, and a 24/7 state-of-the-art fitness center on the lower levels. The spaces come alive with responsive technology, including Zoom-enabled boardrooms, state-of-the-art AV, large TVs with screen casting ability, and a high-speed fiber optic network. The crowning jewel is the ALTITUDE Sky Lounge, a solarium-inspired rooftop with a bar, charcuterie, and dance club space. Over 200 feet of NanaWall sliding windows and doors bring the outdoors in and allow guests to seamlessly enjoy expansive views of the Seattle skyline, Space Needle, Olympic mountain range, and Lake Union. 

Guest rooms feature oversized windows that bring in natural light and city views. Rooms promote convenience and comfort, including a digital concierge, one-touch mechanized shades, mobile key entry, ergonomic workspaces, and bathroom highlights.
