Developers going wild in Seattle

More than a dozen new hotels are being considered for Seattle, which is on the rebound from the post-9/11 slump in a big way. But this big?

    Projects range from a 337-room Westin under construction in downtown Bellevue to an exclusive 150-room Four Seasons near Pike Place Market in Seattle.

    But the flurry of activity has raised a question: Is it too much too soon?

    The consensus among industry watchers is maybe. Much depends on how fast developers build their hotels and whether all the proposals dotting downtown Bellevue and Seattle become reality.

My favorite quote from this article: "Seattle isn't overbuilt, it is overproposed."
