From the Airport

The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is 3.5 miles (5.6 km) from the hotel.

  • The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service 24 hours a day/7 days a week. No reservation is required.
    Upon arrival, make your way to the waiting areas at island #1 or island #3, which you can find by heading one floor above baggage claim, crossing over the sky bridge, and going down one floor to floor #3. There you will find all the islands for transport pickups. Once you arrive at the waiting area at either island #1 or island #3, call the hotel at +1-206-575-8220 to arrange the hotel pickup. Shuttles for the return trip to the airport can be scheduled with front desk.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure to get on the smaller shuttle van for the DoubleTree at Southcenter - NOT the large buses for the DoubleTree at the airport.
  • Taxi cab fare is approximately $18.

Hotel Parking
The Doubletree Suites by Hilton Hotel Seattle Southcenter will offer free onsite parking for self-parking hotel guests in the KU room block.
Attendees who book outside the KU room block or stay at an alternate hotel may be charged for parking. The current rate listed on the venue's website is $16.00 per day. If possible, KU will work to secure discounted or free parking for all attendees, but this cannot be guaranteed until closer to the event start date. 

Additional Travel Notes
