There have been recent changes to the former “auto row” just east of downtown Bellevue. Most recently the new retail complex that houses Home Goods, Trader Joe’s and REI opened at the corner of 116th Avenue NE and NE 4th Street.
The Coast Bellevue Hotel is in the process of completing a $2 million renovation and has changed its name to Hotel 116. The renovation includes improvements to the building exterior, updates to the hotel’s 176 rooms to include new bathrooms and guest room furnishings, a refreshed poolside area and new landscaping. Renovations are expected to be completed by mid-2017.
