In May we are going to be crusing to Alaska. We taking the roundtrip cruise from Seattle. I have about 100 questions about this trip, but lets start with this....Can anyone recommend hotel that will transport from the air port to the hotel and then onto the cruise port terminal the next day? Thanks so much. More questions to follow.
There are no hotels that do all that transporting. You can either get a hotel shuttle and stay near the airport, taking a cab to port. About $35+++ Or take a cab to a downtown hotel, and maybe get a shuttle to the port, otherwise another cab to port.
Actually, yes, I'm sure at least one hotel does airport and cruise port transportation. Its a bit extra for that package but I didn't check to see whether or not it was a good deal. It was either one of the Hilton brands of hotels or the Radisson. I was just checking because we're flying into SEA then taking the train to Vancouver the morning of our cruise after a night in SEA.

I'm staying at the Clarion night before the cruise and they will pick me up at the airport and take me to the hotel (right across the street from the airport)....one night end of May 08 is approx $85.00 including tax. There's no continental breakfast, but there is a restaurant on the 2nd floor of this multi-level/all interior room hotel. I found it through priceline. The cost was higher when I called the hotel for their best rate.
Now to get to the pier terminal...the hotel will call the "Express Shuttle" for a transfer the next morning to the pier. One way from Clarion to the Pier is $10.00 pp. Shuttle pick up times are 10:15 am, 11:20 am and 12:15 pm. Your choice. Just tell them when you check in.
We are traveling to Alaska from Seattle too, in June. We are flying in from Phoenix and thetransferanswer.com was who was referred to us. They charge $18 from the Seattle airport to the Princess pier, which I didn't think was too bad.
