Flying into Sea-Tac? Whether you’re looking for a downtown Seattle bolthole or a budget-friendly stopover, these are the top hotels near this Pacific Northwest hub, and they’re bookable on Culture Trip.

Long-time Seattleites often call their town “Jet City” because the Boeing Corporation was born here. Indeed, it continues to build airplanes in nearby Renton and Everett. If you’re coming in for a landing, make it a soft one with a stay near Sea-Tac. Alternatively, choose a hotel in downtown Seattle, an easy 30-minute ride via the Link light rail.
