Lodging, the official publication of the American Hotel and Lodging Association, highlighted the execution of “a truly flawless renovation” by Digney York Associates. The Motif Seattle, a Destination Hotel, was listed as one of the Five Standout Hotel Renovations of 2017.  DYA completed the $10 million guestroom makeover of this upscale, chic boutique property that included all 319 rooms and guestroom corridors that visually reflects the various elements of Seattle’s culture.

The architecture and design is heavily inspired by the city’s burgeoning fashion, music and art scenes. The renovation became a platform for Motif’s Visiting Artist Program. Every year, the hotel collaborates with a local artist to design a new custom motif and carry it through to stationery, amenities, key cards, events and more.
