Division 9 Flooring updated the corridors at Hotel Deca in Seattle's University District

Division 9 Flooring recently completed corridor work on Hotel Deca, a boutique hotel located in Seattle’s University District.  The hotel was built in 1930 and was originally named after a beloved Professor at The University of Washington – Edmond Meany.  The UW named Meany Hall for The Performing Arts after him as well.  The building is considered a remarkable example of the art-deco style.  The hotel maintains some of its original architecture and is now called Hotel Deca.

The following is an article written by Division 9 Flooring Project Manager David Flynn. David Flynn from D9
