best/cheapest way from airport to pikes market

I'm going to be arriving at SeaTac early in the morning and my hotel is near Pike's Market and dont want to take a taxi the entire way (too expensive) I have done some research and thought taking the Central Link Light Rail from the Airport to Westlake Station and take a bus or taxi the rest of the way (aprox 1-1.5 miles)

Any advice would be helpful! Thanks :D

Which hotel or where is it located? Take Link to Westlake Station & walk or cab the rest of the way. Westlake is 4 blocks from Pike Place Market.

Please take a moment to read the traveler article about arriving/departing Seatac airport: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g60878-s301/Seattle:W…

your going to want to cab it. Its a long downhill walk from Westlake.

the Edgewater hotel isn't really "near" the Pike Place Market. You'll need to take a taxi from Westlake Station to the hotel.

You could probably figure out a bus route. If you just have carryon bags, it is walkable by going right through the market, taking the elevator down. then the stairs, then walking up to the hotel. It is not that far, but if you had full size heavy bags it would not work. We have walked farther on trips than this, but we pack light.

Here's an option: Link Light Rail to Westlake, and then bus #99 from 1st and Pine to the Edgewater. That is the best non-taxi way of getting there, IMHO.
