The 160-room luxe Archer Hotel Redmond boutique hotel has opened its doors in Seattle. LodgeWorks Partners, L.P. is the owner, developer and operator of the property. LK Architecture Inc. completed the design.
The seven-story building was designed to reflect the spirit of modern northwest architecture in what the narrative describes as “Northwest industrial chic.” The lobby features 18-ft. floating wood-ceilings and exposed steel-wrapped concrete columns. Two large fireplaces flank the lobby and create gathering spaces. The property includes a House Art Collection of a unique grouping of pieces in a range of mediums, all created by local and regional artists. The forest photo mural in the lobby is called “Obstruction Point” and was taken by Seattle-photographer Shane Welch. In the library, a suspended sculpture called “Reinventing the Wheel” pays homage to Redmond which is known as the Bicycle Capital of the Northwest. The piece was commissioned through an artist in Wichita, Kansas, where LodgeWorks’ headquarters is based.
The hotel features a variety of design palettes, which is a signature element of Archer Hotel. With a residential nod to the notion that no two bedrooms should be alike, Archer Redmond has four distinct layouts, which include Classic and Double King, Deluxe King Studio (pictured) and one-bedroom suites Archer’s Dens.
The hotel also includes Archer’s Kitchen + Bar for breakfast and a la carte in the evening as well as a full bar. The 24-hour Market provides snacks and other pantry items. A fitness studio, indoor pool and 10,000 sq. ft. of meeting and events space round out the project.
