For folks just taking transit in Seattle Sea-Tac airport, it is necessary to find a good hotel that is close to the airport. Probably the best ones are within walking distance or they have shuttle service to and from the airport. Here is a list of best hotels people recommended that are close to Sea-Tac:
Radisson Hotel Seattle Airport
18118 International Blvd, Seattle WA 98188, 206-244-6666
Comment: probably the closest to the airport terminal. You can also park your car here for free while waiting to pick up someone from the airport.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport
18740 International Boulevard, Seattle, Washington, United States 98188, Phone: 206-246-8600
Comment: perfectly fine for a quick stay before or after a Seatac flight. Shuttle to airport available. The breakfast buffet is expensive (about $17). Could just just walk across the street and down half block for some local eatery at much cheaper price.
Another option is to just bid a 3-star hotel on PriceLine.com.
