Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn Seattle Airport Hotel
Good pricefrom Sam39
As priority club members we were given a voucher for free buffet breakfast in the restaurant which had a good selection including cereal, toast and cooked. We paid in advance directly thru holiday inn and it cost €64 plus tax which we thought was great for an airport location.
The courtesy shuttle was quick to pick up at the airport and runs approx. every 10-15 minutes in the morning.
We would definatly stay here again if the price was right.
Not a bad stay, but beware of little thingsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We had two rooms, and the staff automatically assumed we had two vehicles, so we were double charged for parking (they never asked how many cars we had at check-in, so we had to get the extra charges removed at check-out). Also, they never explained the parking system (you get a card each time you come in the parking lot and reuse a card they have validated to get out of the lot without paying, and our pass to get out of the lot stopped working several times during the trip. Someone on the staff also made a call on our room phone, and we had to get the charges removed.
Pool is indoor, but is not heated.
A Decent Hotel Close to the Airportfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I arrived at the airport and quickly called the hotel from the phone at the airport. Within about 10 minutes, the hotel shuttle arrived. The service was ok; the Asian guy who picked us up could have been a little friendlier.
The rooms at the hotel were average. For the price, location and amenities, they were pretty good. The rooms were clean, and the furnishing did not seem too old.
The food service at the hotel was better than average. They had a decent selection of food in a wide price range. If you are a priority club member, all you have to do is sign up on their website; you get their breakfast buffet for free. This is not an ordinary buffet for a hotel of this class. They actually have a person to make custom omelets and waffles, and the food on the buffet was plentiful and of good quality. The service was very fast.
The pool was not heated but the spa was very good. Since it was pretty cold in Seattle, I did not use the pool, but I did visit the spa once.
Since I was there only 3 nights, I did not have maid service, but the maids seemed to be very nice. The hotel front desk was very friendly, and was happy to arrange transportation for me to Kirkland (about 20 miles from the hotel).
I did need to use the laundry room since my trip would be about 14 days. I was disappointed to find out that the hotel had 1 washer/dryer for the entire property. Not to mention, it was in a bad location next to the elevator and vending machines. It was very difficult to do laundry in this location.
Pleasantly Surprised...from A TripAdvisor Member
Had dinner at the hotel restaurant as well, and that was also good!
Not to worry! Hotel is nice, standard. Not as bad as other reviews.from elliscm
Now the details. We arrived late at night and used the free shuttle from the airport. The shuttle service is conventiently located outside baggage claim, and the shuttles for the various hotels circle around on a regular basis. The shuttle runs 24 hours a day. It is very convenient.
We arrived at the hotel and were greeted at the front desk by very friendly, helpful staff. As usual with Priceline reservations, I had sent a letter to the reservations manager ahead of time to let them know I as a Priority Club Gold member. We were placed on the 10 floor, which is a "Priority Club Executive Floor." This may be where the renovated rooms are.
Our room was very nice! Everything was clean with a nice, neutral, modern feel. The furtniture was a warm wood and both beds had matching wood headboards. Everything seemed relatively new. There were no scuffs or stains anywhere. The room does have an electronic safe, coffeemaker, hairdryer, and free wireless internet access in each room. The linens were clean and comfortable and each bed had 3 down pillows. Our room was quiet and we both slept very well.
The bathroom was interesting. There was a little post-it note form the housekeeper basically stating that if you think she did a good job, please give the note to the manager. All the towels in the bathroom were folded in a fancy way and actually the bathroom and room were very very clean. Maybe this is a new initiative but I appreciate it. Good shower pressure made for a great shower.
We did have dinner in the hotel restaurant. It was good an relatively affordable - about $8 for a burger or very tasty Reuben sandwich (recommended.) The lighting was a little harsh, but otherwise it was a nice experience. As with most restaurants in Seattle, they had at least one good beer (Sierra Nevada) on tap.
I personally feel the complaints are unwarranted. My expereice was excellent. I recommend joining the Priority Club rewards program (it's free anyway), and asking for a room on the 10th floor or higher. This hotel is very close and convenient to the airport. As I stated before, I would definitely stay here again.
Get a newly-renovated room. It makes all the differencefrom CaptainBristol
My bid this time went to $52. With taxes and fees, the total came to $66.81. A friend who joined me in Seattle also booked a room at the hotel, but through a different service. He ended up paying more than $100 for a room identical to mine.
I am pleased to report that my October 2005 stay was remarkably better than my earlier one. M y room had obviously been renovated and it was a definite improvement over the last stay. I only occupied the room for about 10 hours and did not use any of the other hotel facilities, so I can't comment on much else. I had my own car, so I can't even comment on the free shuttle service to & from the airport.
The place was reasonably clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. The linens and towels were Holiday Inn standard--i.e. above Motel 6 but below Hilton.
Basically, this place is a two-star hotel that has somehow conned its way into the three-star club. There is no way it is on par with the Sea-Tac Hilton or Marriott, each of which is very close to the Holiday Inn. However, it was not a bad room for $67. If you can meet or beat that price, I feel you will not be doing yourself a huge disservice.
Overpriced Hotel - Buyer Beware!!from A TripAdvisor Member
We didn't go in the pool, it was murky and the hot tub tiles were brown and slimy looking. I wouldn't sit anywhere near that tub.
No breakfast unless you pay $7.99 for a continental style.
I've stayed in much nicer 2 star hotels. Unfortunately we made the reservation through Priceline and then I checked the reviews. I won't be using Priceline again. Too risky!
Avoid this hotel!from bernardlee
Anyways, I had called the hotel asking for a non-smoking room the week before. When I arrived, they said they only have smoking rooms available.
When I checked out, the morning front desk person was not any better.
It is a good thing I only stayed one night. I will not be returning to this hotel.

Top Local Tips for Seattle
Thirteen Coins - Seatac Thirteen Coins is a great restaurant and bar/lounge open 24 hours. Menu can run a bit expensive, but has great variety of entrees and prices.
Book your rental car via the hotel ... or at least call them for rates. With the discounts I saved 50% of my originally quoted booking via Orbitz.
Need to sleep near the airport? Spend a couple extra bucks and go to the Radisson or save a couple bucks and go to the Motel 6. I'm sure you'd get better service at either of them than at Holiday Inn Seatac.
