December 3, 2019


citizenM, the fully-integrated owner-operated hotel company that pioneered the concept of affordable luxury, announces its expansion plans for 2020. With openings planned for the US and Europe, citizenM will grow its portfolio to 22 properties globally by next year end. 

Following the success of the brand in the US, with two locations in New York City and one in Boston, citizenM continues its ambitious rollout in the country with new properties in Seattle and Washington, D.C

citizenM will also increase its presence in Europe by opening a hotel in Geneva – which will complement its new location in Zurich. 

The three new locations in 2020 will continue citizenM’s momentum on the heels of its 2019 openings, such as Kuala Lumpur, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Zurich and Boston**.

citizenM Seattle South Lake Union – Opening May 2020

citizenM’s first hotel on the West Coast, in Seattle South Lake Union is located just 25 minutes by taxi from Seattle-Tacoma Airport, with 264 rooms across seven floors equipped with jetlag-busting rain showers, iPads, and giant, fluffy beds waiting for flight-weary travellers to get lost in. 24/7 food and drink at canteenM are available for midnight feasts and early-bird snacking, while four spacious, light-flooded societyM meeting rooms welcome big thinkers (fuelled by unlimited coffee). The living room is perfectly designed for working, napping and cocktail indulging, with the latest Vitra furniture, piles of books, superfast Wi-Fi, and plenty of cosy corners.
