    Default Good Hotels near Sea-Tac??

    My oldest son is getting married down near Seattle.
    My wife and I are staying at a nice place over in Gig Harbor.
    BUT, HOWEVER, COMMA, I am flying three other adult off-spring to that area as well.
    I would rather not be their taxi, as well as ticket buyer.
    So what is a good hotel with a shuttle van that is near Sea-Tac ?
    For some bizarre reason the wedding is going to be in the Renton highlands (where-ever that is) , even though the son who is getting married lives in Gig Harbor.

    I figure a bunch of folks here travel down there all the time.

    Check this out and click on prices at the top of the list if they're not already shown. I googled hotels with shuttle service near seatac and this one, Trip Adviser, seemed like a good place to be looking. https://www.tripadvisor.com/SmartDea...tel-Deals.html

    I have stayed in a few by the airport, can't remember which ones, never had any issues with hotels by the airport. Don't know what the plan is but if the hotel has a shuttle and they aren't renting cars, they can hop the shuttle to the airport then hop on the train to downtown for a few bucks, or if they preferred they could stay downtown and catch the train back to the airport.

    Sleep Inn SeaTac 206-878-3600. I stay there quite often and the rooms are clean and quiet, breakfast (plus an IHOP in the parking lot) and a shuttle. Sometimes I stay at the Radisson which you can walk to from the terminal (literally right across the street) but it is quite a bit spendier.

    Since I still have to fly frequently to Ewe-stun, and since I'm old, I end up breaking the trip up in Seattle frequently. Hampton Inn's near Sea-Tac range from (pre-tax, etc) base price of $99/night up to circa $189 IIRC, all with shuttle service.

    If you're willing to spend $150/night or a bit more, the Embassy Suites near Sea-Tac has a great shuttle to/from the airport as well as being willing to (within reason) take you to nearby places.

    FWIW, if one looks at the Hampton Inns, having stayed at (IIRC) 4-5 different ones, they are all uniformly clean and nice; the surrounding area conditions appear to be directly tied to the price. There is one Hampton (and a couple of other chains that I can't recall) that is near a "casino": the motels are fine, but don't go to that casino. I made the mistake of stopping there on a trip a year ago and felt more nervous than I ever do in the 3rd Ward or in the wilds of Alaska.

    Red Lion if I have to stay at the airport. I'd rather grab a cab and go to the Crown Plaza downtown for anything more than a sleep between flights.

    Redroof Inn is where I stay. It is cheapest and closest and marginally better than a bivouac at the airport. Oh, but you were asking about GOOD hotels. You have already had some better recommendations.

    Like akaviator, I stayed at Sleep Inn SeaTac and was satisfied with the cleanliness and good nights sleep. We are at IHOP also for dinner and their continental breakfast in the morning was good also.
