Hotel and easy acess to airport

Hi,

We are wondering if anyone can suggest a hotel for one night with easy access to the airport for a 7am flight. We have 2 young children and will be returning our hired car that day in downtown seattle. As long as the hotel is nice and clean with decent size room thats all we want for the night.

Also is it an hour check in for an internl flight? And is it easier to get to the airport by taxi at that time in the morning?

Thanks

you need more than an hr. Many airlines close baggage 30-45 minutes before flight time. Security at Seatac can be slow so I'd allow at least 90 minutes. You might like the Doubletree, Raddison as they are across from the airport.

You need at least 90 mins. at the airport. With such an early flight perhaps you want to use one of the motels/hotels right at SeaTac? Drop the car downtown then head to the airport the evening before?

international flight check in should be more like 2 hours in advance.

check on whether you can drop the car off at the airport rather than downtown. it's usually not an additional fee for doing so.

look into the new cedarbrook lodge at the airport for your overnight--it's a cut above most airport hotels. you'd drop off your car the night before after checking in, then take their shuttle to the airport.

Thanks very much for your replies.

Will stay near the airport for our early check in. Have checked the cedarbrook which looks nice but a bit expensive at $210 for an airport hotel! Will probably stay at the mariott.

Thanks again

I can highly recommend the Coast Gateway Hotel right next door to the airport. It's clean, comfortable, well managed and well priced for its hotel class and has an adjacent restaurant. On nice days, I can walk there in ten minutes from baggage claim, but they do have a free shuttle. A cheaper option, but just as good, it the Sleep Inn SeaTac about a mile down the road. They offer free airport pickup, a relatively new and well managed property and an adjacent IHOP restaurant. Very inexpensive for Seattle.
