Location

Airport

Seatac is the international airport that you'll likely be using if you're coming from afar. Domestically, it is a hub for Alaska and Delta, and internationally there is regular service to Western Europe and Asia.

The airport code for flight booking is 'SEA'

Taxis from the Airport into Seattle can be ~$60, and ride services (uber, lyft, etc.) are now allowed to pick up passengers at the airport. https://www.portseattle.org/Sea-Tac/Parking-and-Transportation/Ground-Transportation/Pages/tnc.aspx Driving will take ~25-30 minutes to downtown except for at rush-hour when it will take longer.

The Link Light Rail runs every 5-10 minutes from the airport to downtown at a cost of $3 taking you to walking distance from the event venue. The train will take ~45 minutes to downtown, and runs from 5am until midnight.

Lodging

We currently have a room block reserved for the dates 09/25/16-10/1/16 at the Executive Hotel Pacific. http://www.executivehotels.net/seattle-downtown-hotel/ If you would like to be added to the room block please let us know asap. Email us at: travel@tpo

Interesting local stuff

  • WikiVoyage has a good overview of the main points of tourism in the area.
  • Elysian Fields Brewery good beer, plus a great place to hang out.
  • The Lodge Bar more good beer, plus a great place to hang out.
  • Authentic Bavarian Oktoberfest you can take the train from Seattle to Leavenworth for this. Book early, super popular.
