Port of Seattle hotels with cruise shuttle
Spending the night in Seattle before your cruise is a great way to soak up a little scenery before your trip, and arrive at your ship stress-free.
Traffic jams in Seattle are legendary, and rated among the worst in the entire United States. Add variable weather conditions that can be blustery and cold – not to mention the rains that are even more notorious than the city’s traffic – and just getting to the pier to board your ship can seem like an unending journey in itself. Luckily, most hotels in Seattle can accommodate your overnight needs, and then get you to the cruiseship terminal with a dedicated shuttle service, typically for a very reasonable fee.
Seattle is a tourist and business destination itself, with a broad selection of hotels and accommodations at various price levels. With port transfers widely available and cheap, your best bet is to choose a hotel based on your preferences – what type of room you’d like, price range, star rating, free breakfast and so on according to your needs. Within your choices, you will no doubt find hotels that offer a port shuttle service to Smith Cove, and where they don’t many will arrange a port transfer through a car service.
