Excellent convenience is a key attraction of the Marriott Sea Tac Airport. It is less than a five minute walk to the Airport "light rail" (LINK) station, from which you can catch convenient trains to downtown Seattle. The fares are reasonable - as of Summer 2012, a one-way trip cost $2.75, a round-trip $5.50. Indeed, the proximity of the Marriott to the light rail system was what made me decide to stay here - downtown hotel rates were roughly double the cost!
One thing you should know, however: it's a fairly steep ascent uphill from the station to the hotel. Just remember: Seattle is not for wimps!
Unique Quality: The Marriott Sea-Tac has a lovely atrium that looks a bit like a mountain rain forest, complete with native american totem poles! The pool is in the atrium as well, and is especially welcoming.
I could immediately tell that this Marriott hotel is a little older than the other ones that I usually stay at.
No big deal if you're going to be out and about most of the time, like I was.
It's not in a great neighborhood, but being conveniently close to the airport, what would you expect?
Elevators seem to have some issues, and some staff members weren't the friendliest (which I find odd for a Marriott).
If you're looking for a place that's clean and cozy and close to the airport, this Marriott should do the trick for you.
Unique Quality: The pool is indoor and I was sorry that I didn't bring any swim gear. The gym looked pretty spacious and well-equipped. Unfortunately, I was there on business and didn't have the time to try out the amenities.
The lobby is pretty big and there are a couple of places to eat there.
I didn't like the fact that I had to leave the lobby to get to the elevator to get to my room (just seemed a little strange) but it wasn't that big of a deal to me.
Directions: It's conveniently close to the airport. Don't go to the 7-11 that's down the street unless you have a police escort. None of the riff-raff, however, seemed to affect the hotel.
...from an Airport Marriott. A decent place to stay - very comfortable and very close to the airport.
Although there is a parking fee - the shuttle to the airport is free. It leaves every 15 minutes in the morning - and takes less than 10 minutes early in the morning (i.e. 5:15 a.m.)
The room was fine - a bit of wear and tear on the furniture - but sparkling white, clean linens. The drapes and bed cover were quite nice. Room was very quiet - except when a nearby room used the shower. All the expected amenities in the bathroom.
In room air conditioning and heating unit worked well and was quiet.
Desk was a bit small if you're planning to do some work. There's a pool, fitness center, restaurant and bar - but I didn't use any of them so can't comment. Internet for $10 per day, meeting rooms and public areas are wireless. Free coffee/tea in room and free newspapers.
Best part of all was the price - $80 plus tax (AAA rate) for a king bed. At least $40 less than anything comparable nearby the day I was looking to book.
Unique Quality: Hey, this is a Marriott - nothing "unique" about it.
Directions: Just east of the airport
After intensive searching, this place looks like it will meet our requirements for when we visit at the end of December.
Does anyone have any feedback, good, bad or indifferent about this establishment?
