Westin Seattle Wikipedia
The Westin Seattle is a twin tower highrise hotel in Seattle, Washington. The south tower, with 40 floors at 121 m (397 ft) was completed in 1969 as the Washington Plaza Hotel. It was built on the site of the historic Orpheum theater. Western International Hotels operated the Washington Plaza as one property with the adjacent Benjamin Franklin Hotel, built in 1929.
The Benjamin Franklin was demolished in July 1980 for construction of a second, nearly identical tower. While work on the tower went on, the Washington Plaza was renamed The Westin in 1981. Completed in 1982, the 137 m (449 ft) 47-storey north tower, is the tallest hotel tower in the city.
This pair of buildings is featured as the album art for the Modest Mouse album The Lonesome Crowded West.
