Glen Bachman, President of the Everett Port Commission kicked off the event for Hotel Indigo Thursday morning.


Acting CEO and Executive Director Lisa Lefeber describes the private investment that the Port has brought to Everett.

The folks at the Port of Everett and Hotel Indigo couldn’t have asked for a better day to showcase a unique feat in northwest lodging. A brand new waterfront hotel.

Acting Port of Everett CEO and Executive Director Lisa Lefeber told the crowd gathered that the 142 room hotel is the first of many vertical buildings people will be seeing on the Everett waterfront.

Construction over the next five years will be nearly nonstop as the Port of Everett brings in private partners to develop Waterfront Place which will combine residential, commercial and recreational opportunities in one of the few waterfront settings still available for development in the Pacific Northwest.


Pacific Rim Plaza offers a place to learn more about the Port of Everett’s trading partners.

Construction is underway on the Hotel which is fronted by Pacific Rim Plaza that features flags of countries who trade with the Port along with interpretive signs providing information about each trading partner.

There are also benches for relaxing and a splash fountain that features three dozen spouts that can shoot water as high as eight feet into the air and highlighted in the evening by lights that change the colors of the display.

Construction of the hotel is expected to be completed by late next year. Columbia Hospitality is leasing the property from the Port of Everett and will construct and manage the hotel. They currently operate the Salish Lodge and Spa in Snoqualmie, the Semiahmoo Resort, Golf and Spa in Blaine and more than a dozen other properties in five western States and Hawaii.

The Hotel Indigo brand is known throughout the world for boutique hotels from New York to Paris, London to Shanghai, Hong Kong to Singapore. They feature local touches at all of their properties and plan to weave the history of Everett into the hotel here.

The construction underway right now is phase one of the Port’s plan to develop the area between 10th street and 18th street into three districts north, central and south developing over 60 acres at a cost of more than half a billion dollars. Next up will be development of 266 apartment homes. Stay tuned for more details and information on how this summer you can put down a deposit for one of the apartments.
