The Summit building is scheduled to open for business in the Spring of 2022. While construction will be complete in 2021, our teams will need time for the commissioning of systems, furniture and fixture installations, and final preparations to welcome our guests. Work currently underway includes demolition, excavation, and shoring operations; the total excavation is estimated to be 350,000 cubic yards of dirt.

Meeting Planners: Bookings for Summit are underway! Whether you book the Summit and Arch buildings together as a package or separately, you will experience the same level of excellence you’ve come to expect from us. Additionally, we are excited to welcome the Hyatt Regency Seattle, a new headquarters hotel, with 1,260 rooms located just north of Summit.

Questions about booking? Contact our sales team through our website or email.
