Travel Tips

Here are some notes to help with your trip to Seattle:

Air Travel

The Seattle International Airport (SEA) is called SeaTac.

Home-bound tip: All security gates at SeaTac get you into the same common area. The line can be long at one and short at another.

Local Transportation

The Link light rail is a convenient and inexpensive connection from the airport to Seattle.  Trains run every fifteen minutes throughout the day, and you avoid rush hour traffic.  The Westlake Center station in the Metro bus tunnel represents the center of town and is your closest connection to The Westin Hotel.  From the Westlake station, it is a two-block walk to the hotel.

King County metro offers a Trip Planner smartphone app.

You can find bus route information at Puget Sound OneBusAway which also offers a smartphone app.

A taxi will cost about $30-40 depending on the time of day. Rush hour traffic can be tough. But in the middle of the day, a cab is the quickest way to go. The airport is also serviced by Shuttle Express.

The downtown area is filled with quick-access bikes. This is a cheap and easy way to move around. Vendors include Jump.

Parking

At the hotel, parking is valet-only and expensive. 

The closest public parking is the Westin Hotel garage. It charges by the hour with a maximum charge of $24 per day. The convenient aspect is that it is connected to the hotel where all the conference activities take place. The entrance is located on Sixth Avenue.

Surrounding the hotel, ample public parking is available.  Parkopedia is a free website that lists all publicly available parking lots and garages and provides information about street parking.  Typically, you can get a significantly reduced rate by arriving before 8 am at many lots.  Early bird parking in nearby lots is generally around $15 per day. These lots are often full by 8:30 am.
