What’s it about hotels? I think the glossy glass monoliths of Seattle just leave me a bit cold, and the sort of kitchy but at least more… I dunno… hopeful(?) stuff from earlier generations seems like it has a bit more soul. Like our vestigal monorail and Space Needle (both products of the 60′s), the Westin at least *looks* like it hails from the same age.

As it turns out, the first tower was built in 1969, but the second wasn’t completed until 1982 – I guess by then they had to follow the same plan. I like the idea of Seattle having a set of twin towers to call its own – maybe not as graceful or aspirational, but they fit the vibe of summertime in the northwest.
