W Bellevue Hotel is planned for their opening on June 15, 2017 according to a news release. The hotel is filling over 125 positions for the opening of the new hotel. To look for candidates, the hotel will open a “Talent Casting Center” that will open on Saturday, April 1 (no joke). The casting center will be located next to Blue Nile at Bellevue Square.
The open positions range from welcome desk agents to housekeeping and bar and restaurant servers. A role that elevates the customer experience at W Hotels is “W Insider,” which is one of the many roles available. All jobs can be found at www.whotels.jobs/bellevue.
“W Bellevue is what’s new and next for the Eastside,” said W Bellevue General Manager Matt Van Der Peet. “We’re passionate about creating an enthusiastic team; one that carefully crafts a unique experience for each and every guest.”
Playing on Bellevue’s heritage, W Bellevue will reinterpret the idea of a classic Pacific Northwest lake house in a new age modern style.
W Bellevue is planned to host 220 rooms, 25 suites, 10,000 square feet of meeting space and three beverage and food outlets. Jason Wilson, a local Seattle Chef will be the chef for two of the restaurants.
