First an admission: as someone having Gold status with Marriott, and many years of having either Silver or Gold status with Hilton, and as a great fan of the Kimpton hotels, I rarely stay at other chains. Needing a room at SeaTac before an early flight out in late July, I was surprised both by the few vacancies and the exorbitant prices at our usual airport hotels on the night we needed.
Almost in desperation, I booked a room at the Radisson through Expedia (the Radisson website showed availability only for a room with a double bed) and hoped for the best, despite some less than positive reviews.
Arriving late the night before our early flight, we were delighted by what we found: a very friendly and helpful desk clerk who offered us a room with a king bed, a lovely, quiet room (apparently recently refurbished) with a comfortable bed, crisp linens, very clean bathroom, a punctual wake-up call at 5:30am and - best of all - a short, easy walk across the street to SeaTac the next morning. No need to sit in lobby waiting for the shuttle, or climbing over other passengers to find a seat in a cramped van: just a short stroll to the airport, entering at the international gates, then walking a short distance within the terminal to the ticketing lines where we checked our bags: no more than 10-15 minutes from leaving the hotel and reaching the check-in counter.
It wasn't cheap, but the cost was in line with other, better known and better rated airport hotels. We go to Seattle 2-3 times a year and we're thinking that this will be our SeaTac hotel on future visits.
