We wish we could host you all in our apartment, but the line for the bathroom would be too long! Here are some places we recommend that are within a 10-15 minute drive from the Seattle downtown area (and the venue). We encourage you to shop around, but book your stay soon — July is a popular time for visiting Seattle.

You can take the light rail from the airport to downtown Seattle (Westlake Center, the last stop) for $5. It takes about 45 minutes and from Westlake Center, you can take a cab to your hotel. If you prefer taking a taxi directly from the airport, expect about $50 and 30 minutes to get to the downtown area.
If you are new to Seattle, we recommend you use taxis or rent a car to get around during the weekend. If you’ve been to Seattle before or are comfortable with mass transit, then Seattle’s bus system is a great alternative. We recommend you use Google Maps’ public transit feature to navigate and use OneBusAway for real-time arrival times because buses often run late.
Seattle is gorgeous in July. It should be clear and sunny with temperatures ranging from 57°F to 76°F. There will be no gray or rain. Promise.
