Pineapple Tidbit - Getting here from the Airport

Getting Here QuicklyReserve a taxi prior to your arrival in Seattle. A one-way fare from Sea-Tac Airport should cost around $50. It’s a quick trip through our beautiful city! (25-35 minutes, depending on traffic).

Getting Here On a Budget… Hop on a convenient Link Light Rail train from Sea-Tac Airport to the Westlake Station stop in downtown Seattle. One-way fares are $2.75. Allow 45 minutes for the train trip.

When you get off the train at Westlake Station, head to Bay A and hop on the #71, 72 or 73 buses North to the U-District. During peak hours you can catch one of these every ten minutes or less, and depending on traffic the ride will take 20-30 minutes. Exit the bus at University Way NE & NE 43rd Street (you can request this stop from the bus driver if you are unsure). This stop is just a couple of blocks from University Inn -- follow these walking directions and there we will be!
NOTE: Buses are cash only if you don't have an ORCA card. $2.75 during peak hours.

Stop by the front desk or call us at 206-632-5055 and we’ll happily schedule a ride for you. Rates are $55 from Sea-Tac Airport to us, and $50 on the way back (the incoming price hike is due to those pesky airport fees).

Uber: Uber is a town car company that works through an app on your smartphone. If you don’t already use it, we highly recommend you take a look!

Airport Shuttle

Shuttle Express
Shuttle Express is a 24 hour service.  Shuttle Express does pick ups and drop offs 24 hours a day.  Reservations are required for pick ups from the hotel.  We highly suggest reservations from the airport, however, walk ups are taken.  Rates are from $19.00 one way, per person.

TIP: There may be a wait with or without a reservation at the airport as they wait to ensure they have enough people on board to justify making the trip to Seattle. Sometimes this can take a while, however, sometimes there is little to no wait depending on the time of day.

You may either book online with Shuttle Express or call them at 425-981-7000.
