+ In 1966, Western International Hotels and Alcoa jointly announced the development of the Washington Plaza Hotel, to be built on the site of the historic Orpheum Theater.

+ Western International selected the local architecture firm of John Graham & Associates to design the hotel, and the local Howard S. Wright Construction Company to build it. The two firms had also designed and constructed the Space Needle six years earlier.

+ The aging Benjamin Franklin Hotel (connected to the Washington Plaza Hotel) was demolished in 1980 to make way for the second tower. While work on the second tower went on, the company was renamed Westin Hotels making Westin Seattle the first Westin Hotel in the world.
