Travelers who come to visit Seattle love the convenience of location and value when they stay at a Seattle airport hotel. Even though Sea-Tac Airport is only a thirty-minute drive from Seattle, you can get stuck in traffic at the most important time, the time to catch your flight. Some tourists will simply forgo the higher prices of Seattle downtown hotels and stay at one of the Seattle airport hotels.
A new terminal has opened recently at Sea-Tac. There are other major construction projects that will begin between now and 2010, so the traffic jams are only going to get worse. The airport is doing its best to clearly mark construction zones and put in detours. These sacrifices promise to pay off in a few years with more gates and another runway.
With a cab ride to the airport costing as much as $30 each way, you can save time and money by finding the nearest possible lodging Seattle has to Sea-Tac. The Hawthorne Suites is less than five miles from the airport. The one and two bedroom suites are spacious and have everything you could want in their Seattle lodging. The fireplace in each room and the free evening cocktail reception only add to the value of this unique type of Seattle lodging. Larger chains also have Seattle airport hotels. The Marriot and Holiday Inn both have Seattle airport hotels near the airport. Up to four children 19 and under can stay free with each paying adult. This is something you won"t find at most Seattle downtown hotels.
Super 8, Motel 6, and La Quinta Seattle hotels are recognized for their value and reliable service. Truckers and discount travelers will often find these are the cheapest lodging Seattle has near the airport. The Red Roof Inn is a trusted choice of travelers. The deluxe suites come with a microwave and a small fridge to store and reheat your leftovers in. It is these small touches that only increase the value of staying at a Seattle airport hotel.
Many rental car companies allow you to pick up your rental car at the baggage claim area. If they don"t, ask if there is shuttle service to the rental office. Instead of going to a company in the city, and having yet another thing to do before you leave, along with choosing to avoid the Seattle downtown hotels, going this route helps save time. This can be an immense convenience when you add it to the ease of staying at a Seattle airport hotel.
