A Downtown Seattle Map + Directions

Make like Lewis and Clark and get ready to explore the great Northwest. We’ll help out with maps, directions, suggestions, and anything else a modern-day expeditioner needs to get around, whether you prefer car, public transportation, pedestrian power, boat, or bicycle (if it’s the latter, we have bikes for you to use gratis — just ask). Thanks to our in-the-heart-of-it-all location, we’re not far from the Central Link light rail (which goes straight to the airport), King Street Station (where Amtrak is based), ferries traveling locally and to Canada, and cruise ports. With all those options, you’ve got the makings of a grand adventure — perhaps the kind that history books are made of (or at least worthy of telling all your friends about back home).

Directions from the South/Sea-Tac Airport (SEA)

From Sea-Tac, a cab takes 20-30 minutes depending on traffic and the fare is about $37-$40 before tolls and tip. To reach our hotel from the airport and points south:

  • Exit airport and follow signs 'To Freeways' I-5 Northbound/Seattle Exit
  • Continue north to downtown Seattle, merging into the left lane as you approach downtown
  • Take Exit #165 Seneca Street
  • Stay in the left lane at the stoplight and continue 5 blocks to First Avenue
  • Turn left at First Avenue
  • Valet parking is available on the right side at 1007 First Avenue

*This is the most direct route. Please note, however, that traffic can be congested along First Avenue during peak transit hours. To avoid First Avenue, you may access the hotel on Madison Street. During peak transit hours, turn right onto Madison Street for valet parking assistance.
