Stop by the front desk or call us at 206-826-4242 and we’ll happily schedule a ride for you. Rates are $55 from Sea-Tac Airport to us, and $50 on the way back (the incoming price hike is due to those pesky airport fees). 

Uber: Uber is a town car company that works through an app on your smartphone. If you don’t already use it, we highly recommend you take a look!

Airport Shuttle

Shuttle Express is a 24 hour service. Shuttle Express does pick ups and drop offs 24 hours a day. Reservations are required for pick ups from the hotel. We highly suggest reservations from the airport, however, walk ups are taken. Rates are from $19.00 one way, per person.

TIP: There may be a wait with or without a reservation at the airport as they wait to ensure they have enough people on board to justify making the trip to Seattle. Sometimes this can take a while, however, sometimes there is little to no wait depending on the time of day.

You may either book online with Shuttle Express or call them at 425-981-7000.
