Pineapple Tidbit - Getting here from the Airport

Getting Here Quickly… Reserve a taxi prior to your arrival in Seattle. A one-way fare from Sea-Tac Airport should cost around $50. It’s a quick trip through our beautiful city! (25-35 minutes, depending on traffic).

Getting Here On a Budget… Hop on a convenient Link Light Rail train from Sea-Tac Airport to the 'University Street Station' stop in downtown Seattle. One-way fares are $2.75. Allow 66 minutes for the train trip.

Once you've gotten off the train at 'University Street Station' head upstairs in the tunnel and exit onto 3rd Ave & University Street (Here is a map of the University Street Station). Here you'll want to cross the street so that you are on the other side of 3rd Ave. At any stop on 3rd Ave (heading north), transfer to the University District on either the #71, 72 and 73 buses. Departure times are displayed at the bus stop and buses usually come once every ten minutes for most times of day. The bus ride usually takes 20 minutes to the University district area, in which you would exit the bus at at Ne Campus Pkwy & Brooklyn Ave Ne BAY 1 (You can request this stop from the bus driver if you are unsure). This stop puts you within a couple of blocks from University Inn (Here are some walking directions from the bus stop).

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.
