Default Hotels in Seattle

Can anyone suggest a nice hotel in Seattle that also has transportation to the cruiseport there?

Truck Cruiser, this may or may not help you. We were there the last of this past June. We flew in a day early and stayed at the Hampton downtown, about 2 blocks from the Space Needle. From the Hampton to the port is about 2 miles.
I called the Hampton direct and made the reservation with them and got the name of a guy ( Bruce ) who offers Limo service from Sea-Tac to the Hampton for $45 dollars, which I think is about $15 or $20 less than cab fare, depending on the traffic which can be bad.
He also has a van service to the port--I forget what it cost--not much-- but was very efficient, very quick and cheaper than a cab. Hotels, if nice ones, are a little on the expensive side so I would choose wisely and be wary of the cheap ( if you find a cheap one ) ones near down town.
Should you decide to go with the Hampton, they will give you Bruce's phone number and you can arrange directly with him to have a car pick you up at the airport. There was just my wife and me and we had a stretch Limo for $45 from the airport to downtown.
Coming back, we just bought a transfer with Princes from ship to Sea-Tac, which I believe was $20 dollars per person.
Of course, prices change so it could be different now but as I said, we were just there the last of June so it should be pretty much the same.
Hope this may help and good luck.

The only cruiseline that is downtown Seattle is Nowegian. All others are at Pier 91 which is two miles north of the city. There are no hotels near port; nor do any downtown hotels provide free shuttle service. I am cruising from Seattle in July; so I am working on getting a shuttle service to my downtown hotel; then one to the cruise port
