What a pretty hotel! We took the shuttle to the hotel, had a great meal, enjoyed the overall feeling of the hotel, had a good rest before catching our morning flight. The courtyard outside was super sharp. It was really nice!

Historical Traveler Reviews Seattle Airport Marriott
Interesting Marriott Property
This was a unique layout for a Marriott (I've stayed at quite a few all over the world) - a central atrium area with a pool surrounded by rooms on all 4 sides. The architecture was woodsy/cabin-like. It is located on top of a hill overlooking the Sea-Tac Airport. Don't expect to walk anywhere, the hill is pretty steep - but the hotel offers a great shuttle service to/from the airport that runs every 15 minutes. The shuttle only takes 5 minutes to get to the airport.
We arrived in the evening & check-in was prompt. The bellman was super helpful with our luggage & also gave us great directions to restaurants (there are quite a few near a Mall in Tukwila - a 5-10 minute cab ride away). There is a restaurant near the lobby & room service wasn't that expensive.
As you walk further in to the atrium, it seemed pretty dark, but the trees had lights in them & the skylights created a nice ambiance. There were tons of people, young & old at the pool. It was pretty noisy down there. We HIKED to the our room, as it was all the way on the other side of the property. Be sure to request a room near the elevators or you might get tired.
This is an older Marriott property, and you can tell by the room decor, but I still found it comfortable & convenient for a night stay before catching a flight. The 2 double beds weren't as posh as at other Marriotts, but an awesome view of the pool area below compensated for it. With the windows closed, I didn't hear any noise at all. My 6 year old enjoyed the pool & there are locker rooms complete with showers so you don't have to walk dripping wet up to your room.
I've read mixed reviews about this property, but I enjoyed my stay nonetheless. It's a great place for families & business travelers that need to be near the airport.
Tired and Disappointing
Only stayed at this property for one night in early July, but that was enough. I'm a huge Marriott fan and had never been disappointed in a Marriott property, but this one was the first. We arrived in our rental car. We were given no clue as to what the parking situation was (valet, self park, etc.). We were greeted in the lobby by the food and beverage manager (different).
The way the property is laid out, we had to walk all the way around it (indoor corridors) to our room. Once there, our keys did not work (had to use cell phone to call front desk, who sent up new keys about five minutes later). Once in room, had to walk all the way back around front to retrieve my car and find a place to park. I usually have a good sense of direction, but this place was very hard to navigate and I found the "you are here" diagrams at the elevator stations not very helpful.
Our room was clean but worn, big ripples in the carpeting that could have been stretched out without too much effort. Corridors need paint. Positives included the early bird dinner we had in the restaurant (very good and moderately priced for hotel fare) and the bellman (yes, we finally found one) who was very helpful with suggestions and directions.
We're planning another trip to Seattle in September and I've already booked us elsewhere, and would suggest you do the same.
Kind of worn out!
Friendly staff and good location but this is a tired hotel in need of a major update.
Not staying here again
We were expecting a much nicer hotel than we got. The rooms were very outdated and seemed dirty. However, the pool was great and we loved the atrium. I would not stay here again.
Below Average, old and tired
I travel for business 100+ nights a year and stay almost exclusively at Marriott properties.
To me, this seemed to be a rather tired example of a Marriott. The rooms had the standard Marriott decor, but my room (and my colleague's room, too) were not terribly fresh. The rooms looked like they could use a renovation. On the plus side, the bed (although not one of Marriott's new type) was great, comfortable and had nice linens.
The staff was certainly friendly and nice, but that did not make up for the fact that the whole place could use a renovation in my opinion. Not a terrible hotel by any means, just not the newest and best example of what Marriott offers.
Many of the rooms face onto a big indoor pool area that looks like one of those old "Holidomes" that were popular at Holiday Inns in the 1980s.
I was disappointed by the experience at this hotel and would likely stay at the brand new Hilton next door next time I'm in the area.
I stayed at the Marriott at Sea Tac during a recent busines trip and the overall experience is okay.
The charge for the room was USD 84 plus taxes.
The staff was friendly and helpful which I have put as the best part of my experience.
My room was fairly small, as was the bathroom. The room was facing the atrium style indoor pool area. This was particularly annoying as my stay was on the weekend and the pool was occupied by screaming kids until late at night and again from early morning.
I did ask to be moved to a room away from the pool area but was told that this was impossible due to the high occupancy at the hotel.
I had dinner at the hotel and the food was about average.
Overall not too bad, but given the huge choice of hotels close to Sea Tac, I am not likely to stay at the Marriott again.
Very Tired Property and Dirty
Stayed two evenings in May 2004 for a conference. Despite being a Silver Elite Marriott Rewards member, was told Executive Level Lounge was so small only Gold and Platinum could use.
Room was per reservation, but seemed like miles away from the lobby- again especially for Silver Elite.
Room was very dated and tired as was the entire hotel. Dirty carpet in hall ways. Parking was $12 a day, which was ridiculous as other near airport hotels don't charge.
Only positive was the bell staff (when at their station) and shuttle bus driver.
Very disappointing and will not stay again ever.
Great Hotel - Excellent Service
I have stayed at the Sea-Tac Marriott four times in the past three-four months and I really like this hotel.
Every aspect of the service is excellent! This is a very well run hotel!
This hotel has a good "feel" about it to me. All of the rooms that I have stayed in have Marriott's new ultra-comfortable bed, pillows, and bedding. I wish my bed at home was this comfortable.
This Marriott offers "Wired for Businss," the combination of HS internet access and long distance for $9.95 per day, a good value in my opinion.
Parking was $12.00 per day, which seems expensive for this area, but the hotel room rate was reasonable.
I have used the self-service business center several times and have never been charged for hooking-up my laptop and printing, then copying.
The hotel is build around a nice indoor pool area, but I have yet to use it.
The location of this hotel is great. It is very close to the airport, yet it is in a quiet residential area. The business areas of Renton and Kent are directly East of the hotel about 3 miles. (you can skip the freeway bu exiting the hotel to the right and take 176th East which turns in to 178th and then 180th [and 43rd]).
I like this hotel a lot. I can recommend it for it's excellent service, comfortable rooms, and great location.
Great Location - Nice Hotel
I live in NW Washington and had to take an unexpected trip to the East Coast. My flight left a 6AM so i decided to get a hotel close to the airport. The Marriott was very close, had frequent bus shuttles and secure parking. (Parking is not free!)
The staff was great and the rooms where well appointed. Neat inner court with pools and trees.
