Discount details, terms, and conditions

Local airport

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) serves the greater Puget Sound region and ranks #8 in passenger traffic among U.S. airports. Expect a bustling scene, and allow plenty of time.

Ground transportation by car

Most conventiongoers will prefer to travel from the airport to housing via taxi, rental car, or app-based rideshare.

Travel by public transit (Link Light Rail) requires moderate walking distances totaling more than 0.5 miles (see below for more details). Taxis and rideshares (Lyft, Uber, or Wingz) are available onsite at the airport near the terminal.

The offsite rental car facility is reached by dedicated shuttle buses departing near the terminal. In moderate traffic, travel by car from the airport to the convention hotel takes about 20–25 minutes.

Ground transportation by public transit

The 1 Line of SoundTransit’s Link Light Rail departs from the SeaTac/Airport Station (see service map; see timetable; see Google Map with transit and walking directions to the convention hotel).

To get to the rail station, after walking inside the airport, you’ll need to walk roughly 0.25 miles from the airport terminal exit via sky bridge (see this video; golf carts may sometimes be available).

You’ll travel to Westlake Station, located about two blocks (0.3 miles) southwest of the Hyatt Regency Seattle. Trip duration: Roughly 8–12 minutes by foot from baggage claim to the rail station; about 36 minutes by rail to Westlake Station; about 5–8 minutes by foot to the Hyatt Regency Seattle.

Times are estimates.
