It's an easy choice to visit Seattle - exquisite beauty, delectable food, mountain or water adventures and exciting cityscapes. Choosing a place to lay your head, however, can be daunting. From the moment you arrive in Seattle, whether by air to SeaTac, or by car, bus or train, your choices for hotels are almost endless. Everything is available from inexpensive basic hostels, quaint B&Bs, motel chain guest rooms, apartments, boutique or high-end hotels. Funky, modern, traditional or elegant, Seattle has it all, embraced by her incredible views.
If you need to rest prior to an early morning Seattle flight or after a late evening arrival to SeaTac, try staying at the Red Lion Hotel near SeaTac International Airport.
Red Lion Hotel Seattle Airport
18220 International Boulevard, Seattle WA
We stayed here during an international trip. It's located within walking distance of the airport, but why walk when a free shuttle will bring you and all of your luggage directly into the airport, easy peasy.
The accommodations were very comfortable and clean, with an attentive staff. Included in our $250.00 per night hotel room stay was 13 nights of free car parking, along with the shuttle service. Considering the fact that SeaTac parking runs about $130 per week, we thought this was a reasonable and convenient deal.
Rates start at $146 per night.
