Sleep Inn Seatac Airport

Hotel | "Sleep Inn"

The Sleep Inn was clean and close to the airport—they have a shuttle that is fast and will pick you up at the airport and take you to the airport from the hotel. Staff is very helpful and helped us to get a town car to take us to the port for our cruise which is about 15 miles away from the airport. They stated that some of the cabs rip people off, charging as much as $108 to take you there,(only 15 miles) we only had to pay $40. Make the deal up front, when you call, or they will call for you. They have a nice continental breakfast, free local calls, exercise room, and Internet, but no pool. You can find good deals on this hotel with the help of IgoUgo.

We chose to eat at the revolving restaurant on top of the space needle and that was one of the best things about the trip. The food was great, prices were $25 and up for adults, and kids meals were around $12 and up, but worth it. It includes the ride to the top, just let them know when you arrive that you will be eating and they will let you go up. The view was clear that day, we could see the stunning waterfront and the "Emerald City" as they call it. Don't miss this 43-second ride to the top, even if you don't have time to eat.
