Description: Located on the corner of Mercer and Fairview, Even and Staybridge Hotels are a prominent icon at the gateway to South Lake Union from I-5. The design intent for this contemporary hotel is to create a place of refuge within a highly-traveled urban area. A central courtyard offers hotel guests opportunities for exercise, social interaction and relaxation in a semiprivate outdoor setting. Planting beds, street trees and paving patterns enhance the pedestrian experience and contribute to the character along the building edges.
