Delightful Stay Near the Airport

Same brand of comfort and convenience in a different city, the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport is a great choice if you need to be close to SeaTac. The same policy of allowing pets applies, along with free parking and free Wi-Fi. Add a great shuttle service for SeaTac and the chocolate chip cookies they greet you with, and you’re sold! I can honestly say that nothing makes you feel better after a long flight (especially an intercontinental one, as it happened for me) than a friendly face offering you a warm chocolate chip cookie that smells like everything good in the world!
