InterContinental Bellevue at The Avenue has postponed their opening date for a second time. It is unclear when the luxury hotel will be ready to open its doors to the public.
The 208-room hotel was first planned to open in October 2023. At that time, the date got pushed back to the end of January 2024.
We reached out to Avenue Bellevue who did not have a comment at this time, stating that they are “ at the mercy of their general contractor and waiting for updates themselves.” Upon visiting the hotel’s website, guests are unable to book a stay at the hotel until April 15, 2024.
Located on the corner of Northeast 8th Street and Bellevue Way, reservations are starting from $449 up to $7,200 per night. The upcoming opening will mark InterContinental’s first domestic opening since 2017 and is the first of its kind to debut in the Pacific Northwest.
The luxury property is complete with Michelin-star dining and an elevated Clefs d’Or concierge program. Amenities include a dedicated butler-serviced floor, 24-hour room service, a custom Rolls-Royce house car, and an exclusive ultra-luxury yacht.
The guest rooms and suites, as well as a two-bedroom, 2,000-square-foot Presidential Suite, feature expansive windows, a custom headboard, and Italian vegan leather furnishings. Positioned on the third and fourth floors and connected by a sky bridge to the adjacent tower, the hotel includes 12,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space, comprising a total of 9 rooms. It also features a grand 4,250 square-foot ballroom and a 2,400 square-foot junior ballroom.
The two-tower destination features over 365 luxury condos. The $1 billion+ mixed-use complex features more than 85,000 square feet of additional luxury retail and acclaimed dining.
It was recently announced that Spanish tapas restaurant, Telefèric Barcelona, will be opening at InterContinental Bellevue. The restaurant will feature tapas, paellas, and creative cocktails. Telefèric is joining other eateries planned for the hotel, including Fresco with Pacific Northwest cuisine, Ce La Vi Bellevue, a Parisian bistro, and a 3-Michelin star dining experience by Chef Joshua Skenes.
