Pineapple Tidbit - Getting here from the Airport

Getting Here Quickly… Reserve a taxi prior to your arrival in Seattle. A one-way fare from Sea-Tac Airport should cost between $38 and $45. It’s a quick trip through our beautiful city! (20-30 minutes, depending on traffic).

Getting Here On a Budget … Hop on a convenient Link Light Rail train from Sea-Tac Airport to the 'Westlake Station' stop in downtown Seattle. One-way fares are $2.75. Allow 66 minutes for the train trip. Once you’re there, take the elevators from the train tunnel up to the Seattle Monorail station. You'll find the Monorail elevator on the other side of Westlake Station near 'Bay D' and Nordstrom, here is a map of Westlake Station. One-way Monorail fares are $2.25 for adults. The Seattle Monorail will take you directly to Seattle Center and only takes a few minutes. Operation hours vary, so please check their website (if after hours, catch a cab from Westlake Station to The Maxwell... it should only cost a few dollars). The Maxwell Hotel is a 10-minute walk from the Seattle Monorail stop at Seattle Center. Simply walk North through Seattle Center, cross Mercer Street and you’ll find our hotel on Roy Street! Here are some handy walking directions to the hotel from the Monorail station.

Airport Shuttle

Shuttle Express is a 24 hour service. Shuttle Express does pick ups and drop offs 24 hours a day. Reservations are required for pick ups from the hotel. We highly suggest reservations from the airport, however, walk-ups are taken. Rates are from $19.00 one way, per person.

TIP: There may be a wait with or without a reservation at the airport as they wait to ensure they have enough people on board to justify making the trip to Seattle. Sometimes this can take a while, however, sometimes there is little to no wait depending on the time of day.

You may either book online with Shuttle Express or call them at 425-981-7000.
