Detailed directions to our Seattle hotel located downtown

Location, location, location. Did we mention location? Ours is conveniently accessible via car and through mass transportation like the Central Link light rail, Amtrak train, and ferries. Situated right in downtown Seattle, we are not far from the cruise ports, either. We’ll happily help you figure out the best way to get to our Seattle hotel downtown, and once you’re settled in, we can point you in the direction of any sights you’re planning to see (and maybe some you hadn’t considered). It’ll be tough to leave your eclectically decorated room in downtown Seattle, but once you see just what’s right on your doorstep, you’ll be yearning to hit the streets and explore.

Take the light rail train from Sea-Tac Airport to Downtown Seattle

Central Link light rail service runs between the airport and downtown Seattle (exit University St. Station); the adult fare is $2.75 ($2.00 children age 6-18) and the trip takes 35-40 minutes. Service is available from about 5 am through midnight daily. It's an amazing bargain. See schedule and fare information.

Airport Taxi Service

From the airport, a cab takes 20-30 minutes depending on traffic and the fare is $40-$45 before tolls and tip; a $32 flat rate applies from downtown Seattle to the airport.
