Maxwell Hotel and Division 9 team up for a truly unique Seattle floor!

The Maxwell Hotel is located in the heart of Seattle just a block from the Space Needle and Seattle Center, and takes their city seriously.  The hotel engages in environmentally friendly business practices, uses environmentally conscious cleaning products and offers their guests an in-home recycling program. Traditional herringbone patterns come alive with The Maxwell's artistic touch

The Maxwell Hotel is also not afraid to embrace very colorful décor. Division 9’s design and installation experts helped their lively herringbone floor come to life with carefully-considered colors and layout. As the flooring suggests, and in true Seattle character, the atmosphere is fun and the service is excellent. They’re a pet friendly hotel and offer dog beds, pet bowls, treats and doggie bags. The hotel also offers free shuttle service to the Seattle Center, Pike Place Market and Woodland Park Zoo. They offer their guests a work out room, swimming pool and complimentary bicycle checkouts.

The Maxwell Hotel embraces art and the Seattle art community. They offer a Glass Blowing package from Seattle Glass Blowing Studio for those interested. The Chihuly Garden and Glass Blowing Museum is a short walk away at The Seattle Center, and the Seattle Opera House is within walking distance. If you like, you can walk over to The Seattle Center, have a bite to eat at The Space Needle and maybe see a show at Key Arena. You can also hop the monorail over to Westlake Park and walk to the Pike Place Market from there, or take advantage of the Maxwell Hotel’s shuttle service.

Built in 2010 and owned and operated locally by Pineapple Hospitality, a company based just outside of Seattle in Bellevue, The Maxwell Hotel has received Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2012, 2013 and 2014.  At Division 9 Flooring, we value our partnership with the Maxwell Hotel and are extremely proud of the work we’ve done in the hotel. We invite you to take a look anytime you’re in the neighborhood; it’s truly a floor to inspire your creative Seattle style!

Division 9 Flooring floors University of Washington’s Meany Hall Stage

Meany Hall gets makeover by Division 9 Flooring
University of Washington’s Meany Hall is considered one of the northwest’s premiere performance facilities. It was originally known as Auditorium Hall, but the name was changed in 1909 to Meany Hall to honor Edmond S Meany, a University of Washington graduate who played a huge part in getting many of the buildings on the campus. In 1958, the hall underwent a $75000.00 renovation. An earthquake in 1965 revealed the hall was unsafe. A new hall was built in 1974 at a cost of moe than seven million dollars.

The University of Washington was built in 1861 and has one of the most highly regarded medical schools in the world. Division 9 Flooring is honored to be asked to assist in the renovation of Meany Hall. The hall houses the Meany Theatre which is well known for its superior acoustics. The hall’s calendar is full of performances, lectures, and artists. The stage is in continual use so the flooring is very important. We recently completed an update on the flooring and are very proud of the results. The show must go on and the flooring must stand up.

University of Washington's Many Hall gets new stage floor

Division 9 Flooring provides many of our area schools with flooring, including Lakeside School, where Bill Gates and Paul Allen met, and Northwest School on Capitol Hill. What could be more important than education? So when the University of Washington enlisted our services, we knew their level of excellence needed to be reflected in our work. Fortunately, Division 9 Flooring has the same high standards of excellence. Studies show that flooring can have a major impact on education and the arts. Knowing the flooring we provided at UW’s Meany Hall would endure countless performances inspired us. Harry Belafonte himself will be standing on that stage as will numerous dancers, performers and lecturers. We are very happy to be a part of a project that impacts so many.
