“Good Value for Flying out of Sea Tac”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We stayed here before flying out of Sea Tac, and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is clean and well kept, and the staff were helpful and courteous. We had a great sleep and didn't even notice that we were close to an International Airport. We will be back.

Very convenient to airport with lots of extras. Free shuttle service, breakfast, shuttles to restaurants and great staff. We received a free upgrade to a king suite which was a wonderful surprise. Super comfy bed and pillows.

Though not within ideal walking distance to most resturants or entertainment, the Holiday Inn Express does have a clean hotel with a great staff and a shuttle that'll take you to places. The rooms are clean and beds comfy, with enough soundproofing you barely hear planes nearby. The staff is welcoming and friendly and are willing to help with anything. The shuttle service is quick and friendly and took my wife and I to Dennys late at night. Great place to stay for a night or two.

Dear David H,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm glad that you used our 24 hour complimentary shuttle to take you to one of our local restaurants. I'm glad that you like our beds, we just replaced all the pillows in the hotel to make sure that everyone gets a good nights rest. We hope to see you again if you ever come back to the SeaTac area.

We stayed here our last night in Seattle. Our room was very nice, clean and quiet. Breakfast was ok. We had an early flight home and it's just minutes to the airport. We will stay here again. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable of places nearby for dinner.

This place is better than we expected, the front desk people were super nice, helpful and flexible to help us to find a suitable room. The room is very clean and comfortable. Although it was busy during the breakfast time, but the food was good. The hotel is close to the airport and Westfield shopping centre.

Stayed one night before catching the train to Vancouver. The airport shuttle picked us up within minutes to take us to the hotel and later to dinner nearby. The hotel is dated but comfortable beds. Lots of smoking rooms but not great for non-smokers so we were not happy being in a smoking room. The best thing about the HI Express was the hot complimentary breakfast. Don't plan to stay there again. lots of people going to cruise ships staying one night.
