Designed to provide affordable luxury and appeal to the tech-savvy mobile citizen who prefers urban settings, citizenM hotels contain rooms that are smaller than average. The buildings are formed by stacking the individual prefabricated modular guestrooms on top of each other, creating a tower with a series of large bedroom windows. Pre-fabrication of the units, which are trucked in finished and stacked on site, allows for a greater quality control while also speeding up construction by two to four months versus traditional methods. It also significantly reduces the number of truck deliveries, traffic and pollution associated with traditional building methods. With 264 keys and 7 stories, the citizenM Seattle hotel is perfectly positioned in South Lake Union near Amazon’s headquarters.
