Football Season Starts This Week and the Woodmark Hotel near Seattle is a Special Kind of Fan
The Seahawks kick off their season this week and throughout the preseason we see Blue Friday represented by Seattle and its surrounding communities like Kirkland. Being so near to Seattle makes it so the Woodmark Hotel has diehard fans among the staff and guests staying with us as well. But there is another reason why the Woodmark has a special connection with the Seattle Seahawks. Their headquarters used to be here in Carillon Point!
The first ten seasons of Seahawks were centered right in the beautiful community of Kirkland only 15 minutes from Seattle. Their training camp was held in Cheney near Spokane at Eastern Washington University. They then opened new headquarters also in Kirkland right adjacent to Northwest College at the time, now Northwest University, and the players would actually stay in the dormitories. Their training facility was brought nearby as well and was completed in 2008 in Renton also right on Lake Washington.
So why does this matter for the Woodmark? We support our community and all the local teams 100 percent. Our Beach Café restaurant and Living Room bar have multiple televisions where we can stream the local games each day during all meals and Happy Hours. Being so close to Seattle, The Woodmark also has many great amenities and opportunities for fans to stay with us and enjoy the game as well. Football season is a busy time for us as we also have our Husky Cruise Boat Rides during the college season for University of Washington games. Avoid 520 traffic and ride comfortably across Lake Washington right to Husky stadium to enjoy the game and ride back afterwards.
We are all fans in some capacity, whether only watching on TV, being at every game, or wearing our local team gear. The Woodmark Hotel is near Seattle to make it a great spot to be a fan. We encourage you to share your fan experiences with us at the restaurants, on the water, or at the games!
