CenturyLink Field hotels are in one of the most exciting cities in North America—Seattle. Renowned for a vibrant music scene and lauded for abundant options across the board, including excellent dining and entertainment, hotels near the former Qwest Field (as it was called until 2011) put you close to the heart of everything. Home to both the Seattle Sounders Major League Soccer team and the Seattle Seahawks National Football League team, lots of home games means big crowds and a lot of excitement.
The big picture illustrates that Seattle hotels are situated all around the venue, both north and south of the West Seattle bridge, and on the west side too. Southern-based CenturyLink Field hotels offer the advantage of being close to the airport while northern based ones are closer to Seattle’s best attractions and many things to do. Yet still, with some sort of vehicle, most of Seattle and surrounding attractions are easily reached. Seattle also has a bus route that can be a great way to get to games if parking is a concern.
