SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - After 10 years, the SpringHill Suites Seattle Downtown/South Lake Union, among Seattle LGBT-friendly hotels, decided it was time to get a little work done. This year, the hotel will unveil its new look and feel, with everything from higher thread count bed linens to a faster Internet connection.

The year-long renovation will transform the entire property, and the work has already begun. "SpringHill Suites is a brand built on style and innovation," Aaron Olson, general manager of this hotel in South Lake Union, Seattle, says. "After introducing the brand's most current concept to our guests via an extremely well received $1-million lobby renovation, we are thrilled to extend these updates into our guest suites."

Updates will come in phases, but in the end, accommodations at this extended-stay Seattle hotel will have new carpet, paint, vanity mirrors, bed decor, 300 thread count linens, window coverings, shower curtains, luxurious bath towels, furniture, and lighting. Corridors will also get updated.

With a location in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood, a booming technology and business area, the hotel's technology updates couldn't come at a better time. Guestrooms and public spaces will feature HDTVs, and the hotel's Internet access will triple in bandwidth, accommodating the growing number of area businesses, including Amazon and Facebook, within walking distance of this hotel. Corporate travelers can also enjoy this downtown hotel's existing amenities, pool with Jacuzzi, full access to 24 Hour Fitness located across the street, Bistro on Yale restaurant and bar, and a daily complimentary hot breakfast buffet.
