Extremely noisy building. Not the guests but the pipes which groan and the ceiling which creaks. The heat is uncontrollable and the only way to moderate the temperature is to open the windows. The rewards club doesn't give free breakfast anymore which is very disappointing. The only good part of the hotel is the staff. They are the nicest around.

We stayed 12/21/2014 after a family get together in the Seattle area before our Monday am flight. We went to bed around 10 and were rudely awakened by an alarm that was probably set by a prior customer..... that was at 4:15 AM. Shortly thereafter, the people in the room above us started making thumping noises on their floor (our... More

This was the first time I stayed at the Red Lion in Seattle. I chose the hotel for it's location and bed. I like a simple, clean hotel that I can be assured will have a modern, comfortable bed, a coffee pot, and a clean room. This hotel delivered on that promise. The best part of this hotel is that...

Most importantly, the king size bed was perfect (not too soft, not too firm). All the necessities - flat screen TV, coffee maker with paper cups, microwave, fridge. The room is spacious (the architect could have devoted more room to the bathroom/closet area). Only 3 stars you say? Three stars is good, it's just not quite what we anticipated. You... More

My Wife and I stayed at the Red Lion Hotel adjacent to Seattle Airport 12/9/14 - 12/12/14. The hotel is clean and our room had an updated bath/shower. It was a smoking room, but it did not smell like a smoking room. The bed was a pillow top and it was comfortable. DirecTV was a plus on the flatscreen tv.... More

Roomy, modern furnishings, noisey AHU with rattle in fan all night. Excellent Customer and shuttle service to SEATAC. Musty smell in carpets- more noticeable in hallways, also present in room/drapery fabric. Roll-in shower head on hose had no bracket to hold the head- just hung loose-awkward to shower; floor tile extremely cold on 10Dec14 overnite stay.

The Red Lion hotel is a few minutes from the Seattle airport. There is a shuttle service every 10 minutes so it is very convenient. I found the hall ways a bit musty but Seattle had lots of rain over the past few days. The room was clean and tidy. Bathroom was a bit dated but okay. Check in was... More

There was nothing much wrong with this very average hotel, but for the price ($230 or so) we expected a little more. The place is a bit tired looking. The rooms are overly large, bathrooms too small. We booked this through Park Sleep Fly, which was a handy way for us to keep our car at the airport for 10... More

Great option for park and fly. Easy to drop and retrieve car with Masterpark, and easy to get a good night's sleep with comfy beds and dark rooms.
