Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Seattle Airport Hotel

Fine place for a business trip

from bradydude
Stayed there on business for a weekend and found it to be fine. Staff that I interacted with were friendly and helpful. Convention center was nice. Didn't eat or swim there, although walking by the restaurant the smell was fantastic. Room was quite nice. Down side is that it is a ways to walk from the parking garage. Also remember that if you use the quick checkout to keep your room key in order to exit the parking garage.

Perfect Airport Hotel

from tatabob
Stayed here 1st week of Sept 2005. Nice rooms,very quiet. The restuarant is very good , especially for an airport hotel.

If you have to stay near the airport...

from A TripAdvisor Member
I'm from the Seattle area, so my first advice is if you're going there to visit, do not stay near the airport. This is one of the worst areas of Seattle and you don't want to spend any significant amount of time here. If you do need to stay near the airport, this is probably one of your better options.

I agree with some of the reviews I've read here. The best thing about this place is that the rooms are clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. Aside from that I was disappointed. When checking in the front desk attendant said all they had were rooms with 2 full size beds. After pressing him a bit he said he could put me in a room with a King (which is what I thought I had paid for) for $10 more. Who knows why I need to pressure him to get that information at 9pm on the night of arrival. And about the $10, I would have gladly paid twice that and get the King in the first place without having to go through this unnecessary annoyance.

The room service food was dreadful. In fact this is the reason that inspired me to write a review about this place. I had a salad with browning lettuce and an undercooked pizza with slimy, doughy crust. It was embarrassing.

One last thing to note is that the soundproofing was poor. The level of noise from the airplanes was acceptable, however noise from my neighbors was not. I felt like I could have taken part in their conversations had I spoken their language. If I had my TV on the same station as them it would have been in surround sound. Anyways, you get the picture.

Even with what I've complained about, as I noted earlier it's probably one of your better options if you must stay near the airport. Just don't order room service and hope you get lucky with quiet neighbors. Good luck!

Priceline Comes Through Again

from CubbyandGman
My wife and I stayed three nights while on vacation. Got the room for $45 a night on Priceline. Room and bed was comfortable. Room service was OK -- overpriced like everywhere else. $14 per day parking is steep, but I guess the way I look at, I would have been happy with $59 per night and free parking so it's all the same. Room was quiet despite Airport across the street. Access to downtown Seattle was good--15 minutes or so up I-5. Parking garage is a very far walk from lobby and room elevators. Business centre internet access was 49 cents per minute.

Nothing special, but about the best option in the area

from CaptainBristol
The key to a successful stay near a major urban airport is to keep your expectations low and your tolerance for mediocrity high. We stayed at the Sea-Tac Hilton for four nights in mid-August, 2005 and thought the place was a reasonably good option in the charmless Sea-Tac area. I got the room on Priceline when I bid $45 per night for a three-star place in the Sea-Tac area. With taxes and fees the total came to $55.50 per night, which is very reasonable for a Hilton.

This sprawling hotel appears to have carved out a niche as a conference venue as well as being an airport hotel. A conference center is an integral part of the parking garage, and it was full of conferees during two of the four days we stayed there. I thought the parking fee of $14 per night was reasonable, given that I parked the car in a garage. At the nearby Doubletree (which is also a Hilton property) they charge $12 per night to park in an outdoor lot.

The hotel itself is nothing special while being nothing dreadful. The airport is literally across the street and I frequently heard somewhat-muffled plane noises. These noises were not terribly loud, but they were certainly noticeable. The rooms are clean and well lit; the beds and linens are comfortable and adequate; the bathrooms are not-too-small and come with OK towels and amenities. The rooms all have high speed Internet access, but the procedure to get online is less than easy. Also, the system (at a cost of $10 per day) requires you to push through several pages of Hilton advertising each time you log on. Surprisingly, the sound insulation is poor. One morning I heard 5 a.m. wake-up calls ringing in rooms on both sides of mine. Then I was treated to toilet and shower noises, along with the sounds of CNN and Fox News coming through the walls.

The hotel staff is reasonably cheerful and reasonably efficient with the exception of the staff in the bar and restaurant. The bar/restaurant staff seems to prefer to share urgent hotel gossip to waiting tables.

I found the food in Spencer’s steak restaurant to be merely OK. Mediocrity was the watchword; there was nothing offensive about the food, but there was nothing noteworthy about it, either. A better option is the 13 Coins Restaurant located in an office tower about two blocks south. It is a very easy walk and is worth the effort if you are tired of Spencer’s. If you have wheels, the best dining in the area can be found at Anthony’s Homeport in the nearby town of Des Moines, which is right on Puget Sound. Drive about 4 blocks south from the Hilton and turn right on 188th St. Follow the signs to Des Moines, which is 2-3 miles to the southwest, and head downhill to the Des Moines waterfront. Every night, Anthony’s packs in the locals for fine seafood at honest prices. Their Sunday Brunch is a great value, too.

Wonderful Stay!!!!

from barrett68
The only thing that kept me from giving this hotel a 5-star rating was the cost of parking at $14 per day. The staff was excellent, the bathrooms were very good (no soap scum or old shower heads). I did not eat at the hotel restaurant, but there is a Claim Jumper restaurant less than 4 miles away. Since I am from the midwest I had never heard of this place. Excellent DESSERTS!!!!!
This Hilton only has two levels and depending on where your room is you may have a long haul to your room from the parking lot. Having said that, this Hilton is still worth it.

Avoid the restaurant

from Inneedofsunshine
I surprised my husband with a night there even though we live 10 minutes away. When the front desk found out, I had complimentary chilled champagne in my room by the time I got there from the parking garage (it's a long, long walk so it takes a while.) We also got switched from our super-discounted room to a room with a great view of the courtyard.
The restaurant--terrible. I would expect for a $30 filet mignon they would at least decorate the plate a little. It was a chunk of burnt meat on a totally empty plate. I didn't even want to take it home to the dogs.
Great place to stay; go elsewhere to eat.


from abbyAustin_Tx
Luxurious accommodations including a huge room with an extraordinarily comfortable mattress and pillows. The bathroom was incredible with a jacuzzi tub, seperate shower, 2 vanities, and plush robes all done in granite and marble. Great location if you're flying into Seattle and plan on visiting Mt. Ranier.

Great spot before early flight

from hendo
Spent a Saturday night here before an early morning flight on Sunday. Check in was a breeze - room was fine - 24-hour on request shuttle to airport - nice bar - overall it was a great spot considering some of the other lodging options on the Sea-Tac strip.

Good experience Hilton SEATAC

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent a Saturday night at the Hilton Seattle Airport before embarking on a cruise from Seattle. Stayed on the Hilton Honors floor. The room was very clean, nicely decorated, the beds were very comfortable and it had a nice bathroom. Only downside to the room was that it was a little small with the two double beds. Used the complimentary shuttle from the airport and it was timely. Hotel staff was very helpful. Breakfast buffet was average. Got the room for $94 with the AARP discount. Overall a nice hotel at a great price.

Top Local Tips for Seattle

Gelato there is a great gelato place on First Street near the chocolate place and the pike pub. I highly recommend the pear or melon gelato!

Stuck at Sea-Tac for a few hours but don't have enough time to go downtown? The restaurant Roaster's is extremely close to Seatac airport and has an amazing selection of chicken, lamb and steak dinner options. The bar area reminds you of a beer hall in Germany, and they have an excellent selection of beer and liquor. The menu has health concious options and lists the nutritional info so you can eat a tasty meal for only 400 calories! You can go there solo or with a group of friends and have a great time.

Pike Place Don't miss it!
