Staying down town - save money parking at airpot?

Staying downtown for two nights in early august.

I am driving and want to avoid paying the $30+ daily parking fee at the hotel.

I was thinking of parking at SeaTac airport then taking the light rail downtown.

Won't need the car while were downtown, just using it to get to Seattle.

Would this be viable? Any suggestions on where to park at SeaTac? Preferably a spot near the light rail station.

You could do that. Just read the forum posts for parking regarding recommendations.

The Maxwell Hotel at Seattle Center offers free parking.

I think its sort of silly to park at the airport to save $30. Airport parking is $14 dollars plus there is an airport pkg tax. Why not just park on the fringe of downtown? Street p[arking is free after 6 and all day sunday. Here is a website


You could park in the park n ride lot at Northgat Mall and take the 41 express bus in. Runs every 15 minute with no stops till downtown.
