Shattered Glass Rains Outside Washington Hotel

September 7, 2011

The Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Seattle is replacing 300 glass panels on its high-rise condo balconies after broken glass rained down on the street below for the third time in a year.

The Seattle Times reports no one was injured in the incidents – the latest one on Sunday. But falling pieces in July cracked the glass awning at the hotel entrance and slightly damaged a car.

Hotel general manager Ben Trodd says it’s working with the city and a contractor to find out why the glass panels failed and to install new railings.
