For SeaTac business travel, the Red Lion was a very good choice. It is literally within walking distance of the airport. (Exit baggage claim, head right down the sidewalk, and about 10 minutes later, there you are.) You are also within walking distance of the light rail station, so getting downtown is quick and inexpensive. The on-site restaurant, Gregory’s, had a surprisingly tasty breakfast buffet; in the bar at night, I had a pretty good plate of nachos with a microbrew. You’re also close to 13 Coins, a 24-hour diner that is worth the extra bit of walking.
The room, a king suite, was very large, so much so that the bathroom was a bit cramped by comparison. A door separated the toilet and shower from the exterior sink, which is always a welcome feature. The shower was hot and had great water pressure. The bed was comfortable and had plenty of small (not full size) pillows. No significant issues, but there was a problem with several DirecTV channels when I stayed there. It’s not a sparkling new property, but it is well maintained. I had never stayed at a Red Lion before, but I will have no problem supporting the brand in the future.
