“Best Kept Secret in the Seattle/Tacoma area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2010

Cedarbrook is one of those best kept secrets in the SeaTac area. Formerly the conference center for WAMU, it is now owned by the Wright family - the folks who own the Space Needle.

Only a mile or so from SeaTac airport, Cedarbrook offers a tranquil, upscale enviornment - you would never suspect you are near an airport. The sleeping rooms are large and comfortable. The conference space is very professional and comes in a variety of options for space - from an auditorium to small "dens".

The food is fantastic and there is lots of it. The new bistro resturant is in front of the fireplace and is a nice intimate place for dinner and features fresh northwest foods. Breakfast and Lunch are served in their larger space and includes well stocked buffets. Living rooms in the sleeping room area feature a kitchette with a fridge stocked with water, yogurt, string cheese, etc. and a freezer full of individual sized hagen-das.

Probably the best thing about the place, though, is the staff, which are welcoming, professional and wonderful to work with.

There is also a small bar and a nice fitness room.

Obviously, I can't say enough nice things about this place. We use them often for our trainings, but it is also a nice place to stay for someone visiting the area for fun.

We were very surprised at the understated elegance. The room was very comfortable. We loved the full-sized bathroom and soaking tub. We did not hear the planes even though we were right at the airport. The grounds are beautiful. We would love to stay at the lodge again.

We found this hotel on Expedia.com. It was wonderful! Only 5 minutes away from the airport, but you would never know it. The grounds were gorgeous,surrounded by trees, lawns, ponds, relaxing waters... Room was clean and comfortable. Bath was great in their huge tub. Their shuttle takes you to the new light rail system which runs to Pike's Market and Malls.
Staff was courteous, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Great dinner menu.
Free snacks of candy, chips, yogurt, ice cream and bottled water available in common area 24/7.
Can't wait to return. I have already recommended this hotel to several of my friends.

Found this place in a tourist brochure, checked it out here and booked a room for an impromptu weekend in Seattle. Got a good deal with our AAA discount and completely enjoyed our stay. This is the former WAMU leadership/conference center and some signs have not yet been changed. It is incredibly quiet! The gardens and water features all around are very relaxing and soothing, nice fitness room and the convenient snack bar in the living room of each building was very convenient for grabbing water before we went out on the town. The only thing we missed was a swimming pool or spa but that was not really missed too much. Reasonable price and great accommodations, where we were not nickel and dimed for every amenity, Free parking, wifi, water and snacks. We saved 50 a day on those things alone. Great find, we'll be returning when we need to be staying in Seattle.

The Cedarbrook Lodge is well-appointed, comfortable, in a beautiful setting. The food was excellent, with lots of unusual dishes, healthy salads, good desserts, nice wine selections. I loved the snacks available throughout--monster malted milkballs (including mint), yogurt, fruit, and water in refrigerators near the rooms, and Haagen-Dasz ice cream cups for that midnight snack. I stayed as part of a business group but would not hesitate to go back as a guest not on a business trip.

We had an early flight out and wanted a place to stay near SEATAC. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Cedarbrook Lodge - it's a great little hideaway. The hotel ground has so much ambiance - we felt safe and had a good's night rest. It's just as they advertise on their website - clean, well-maintained, and friendly staff. I'd stay here again if I'm ever back in the Seattle area.
