The least expensive transportation from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport  to the hotel is the Metro. You can travel to the Westlake Station, which is just two blocks from the hotel, for $2.75. Click here to see a map. To ride the Metro, look for the signs for ground transportation at the airport. As you follow them, you will see signs for the Metro. You will walk through a parking garage to get to the station. In fact, you will find that the walk to the station from your airline terminal will be longer than that from the Westlake station to the hotel. If you have difficulties walking a distance with your luggage, please check out the ground transportation page of the Seattle-Tacoma Airport website to find alternatives to the Metro.
