Shuttle Service to the hotel from SEATAC

Information from Best Western Executive Inn, Seattle

The most inexpensive way is Grayline (about $9.50) but is stops at some other hotels also, so it is not the quickest. Next would be Shuttle Express which is approximately $27.00 for the first person and $4.50 for others. If you have a group this would be the best. Cabs are about $35-40. All are available at baggage claim.

One of our Board of Directors (Jim Sievers) visited the area and the hotel where we will be staying and was favorably impressed with its central location to the best Seattle has to offer. The Best Western is right across the street from the Seattle's Space Needle and within easy walking distance of the wharf, some great eating, shopping, and entertainment establishments.
