This is my fault. After a week and a half on Vancouver Island and off, we stayed in a number of places that all were spacious and had refrigerators and microwaves. So when we decided at the end of our vacation to stay in Seattle two nights, I got on the internet and quickly made reservations at the Red Lion,... More

Stayed the night of April 27 2015. We used this property as a park/ fly and stay. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and well maintained. No issues with heat or AC. Stayed on the 5th floor, secure with key access only. To stop on this floor, the elevator requires your room key. Parking during our trip... More

I had such an amazing time at the Red Lion Hotels and Conference Center. The staff went above and beyond for me and I truly appreciate them for it. I hosted a Expo and the banquet staff knocked my socks off. They literally went out and got any/everything I needed. My room was clean and very welcoming. The front desk... More

This is just an average hotel, but I gave it a poor rating because there was no way to control the heat or air conditioning. I asked the hotel about it, and they said they'd look in to it, but nothing changed. I talked to other people in the hotel, and they said they have the same problem. I was... More

We got a great rate on a park n fly with 14 days of parking. We were on the top (6th) floor and our room was actually pretty nice. On our return, because of delayed flights, we opted to stay again. This time, we were on floor 3 and it was pretty tired and run down...a disappointment to be sure.... More

They must have a sweetheart deal with Alaska Airlines. Our flight was delayed and the airline rewarded us by putting us up in a noisy hotel. Many more hotels much closer to the airport and in much better repair than this dump. I wonder how many repeat customers they get. We certainly won't be going back

Shuttle only runs every 30 minutes to the airport. No restaurant open late at night. Room was adequate. Bed wasn't the best. Bathroom was fine. It took a long time to check in, not sure why. No restaurants open nearby after 11 PM. We walked to the gas station nearby to get some snacks. Shuttle driver was very nice and... More

if you're forced to stay in Renton or need a short Seattle stay over, you could do worse. I stayed here when bumped off a flight this week, and it was fine. The hotel is obviously commonly used for this and accommodates late check outs and has a free shuttle. The Yankee Clipper restaurant attached is decent as well.

I went for a medical examiner for a couple days... Don't let them put you next to the elevator... Makes a noise all night... The old building also is weirdly heated. We were dying. You hear everything doors are not fitted so light comes through. On the good side.. most of the staff try to be helpful.

My wife and I booked a park and fly package for a recent trip that had us flying out of Seatac Airport. Our plan was to drop our car at the Red Lion, fly out and then spend the night at the hotel on our return. Everything went just as planned. The shuttle to and from the airport was perfect.... More
