Located minutes from downtown Seattle and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Hotel Interurban is the newest hotel to enter the South Seattle market. Standing 19 stories high, the hotel is the tallest building in the city of Tukwila, and the tallest between Seattle and Tacoma.

When you walk into the two-story lobby, you will notice a hip, urban vibe with a unique custom-glass art installation by local artist Bryan Rubino. Throughout the chic hotel are fun pops of modern art and color to entertain. Guestrooms have a clean and contemporary design, and most upper-level rooms have a sweeping view of the surrounding area.

With a focus on technology and innovation, the hotel offers sleek modern rooms with 49-inch HDTVs in its 185 guestrooms. The custom-built canopy for vehicle and guest arrivals at the hotel entrance is made up of 60 solar panels.

The hotel also has “Hazel,” a mobile robot that can be called on to make room deliveries, such as a bottle of wine or room service or toiletries. Named for the Native American translation of Tukwila—Hazelnut—“she” is the first house robot in Washington state.
