Frequently Asked Questions
How do we get to/from SeaTac Airport?
There are several options! To start, we partner with a Town Car Service, and they offer transportation for a flat rate. Call the hotel at (206)529-3700 for more details, and a specific quote.
The Link Light Rail is a public transportation option, traveling into downtown Seattle from the SeaTac Airport. It costs approximately $3.00 USD per adult, and take about 40 minutes. The stop at Westlake Station is the closest, and about a 10-minute walk to our hotel.
Taxis, as well as Uber and Lyft, are also readily available from the airport. Costs vary, but usually start around $40 USD.
What time is Check-in and Check-out?
Check-in is guaranteed at 4pm. Should you arrive earlier than that, we’d be happy to see if a room is available for an early check-in. If a room is not ready, we can store your luggage at no charge, so you can enjoy the city. Please note we cannot guarantee early check-ins in advance.
Check-out time is noon (12pm). Luggage storage is also available at no charge the day of your departure.
What about parking?
Parking at the Belltown Inn is extremely limited, and provided on a first-come, first-served basis. We have no parking on-site but contract parking spaces at two off-site locations, both within a block of the hotel. If a space is available, the cost is $20 USD/night (plus tax).
Can I reserve a parking space in advance?
Due to limited supply, we do not reserve parking spaces in advance. Should parking be sold out, the front desk can recommend other nearby options.
For those who can, we’d encourage you to leave the car behind! We’re located in a fantastic spot in downtown Seattle, easily walkable to major attractions, and on a bus line. As we say, you really can “Walk to everything!”
Do you allow smoking on property? In the rooms?
No, The Belltown Inn is a smoke-free establishment, in all guest rooms and public areas.
Do you offer wi-fi?
Wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel, and is complimentary.
Do the rooms have A/C?
Yes! As of 2016, all of our guest rooms have A/C units.
Do you offer breakfast?
We have neither a kitchen nor a restaurant on site, so we do not offer breakfast. We’re fortunate enough to be in an area with many great restaurants and coffee shops, so there are plenty nearby options. The closest breakfast spot, Biscuit B*tch, is actually attached to our hotel. They’re open 7 days/week and are quite popular, so check them out!
I want to ship a package before or during my stay. Can I?
Yes! We’re happy to accept packages for our guests. Please send the package to:
The Belltown Inn
Attention: (Guest’s name)
2301 Third Ave
Seattle, WA 98121.
If you’d like to let us know when the package is sent, we’ll be happy to make a note to keep an eye out for it. Please note that if the guest has already departed when the package arrives, we cannot hold it and will return the package to sender.
Are pets allowed? Are there restrictions?
Yes, we are a pet-friendly hotel. We gladly welcome cats and dogs that are 50lbs or less. We require an additional $200 pet deposit that is fully refundable at check-out, assuming there is no damage to the room. Please note that housekeeping will be unable to provide service to the room if the pet is left unattended in the room while you are away.
If you’d like to reserve a pet-friendly room, please call our front desk staff at (206)529-3700 so that one can be assigned to you.
“Walk to everything!”
We’re in a fantastic location in the Belltown neighborhood in downtown Seattle. The young, fast-growing neighborhood is directly in between the Space Needle, and famous Pike Place Market. Walk to either in less than 15 minutes!
The surrounding neighborhood offers a wide selection of food and drink options. Our Front Desk is staffed 24/7, and we’ll be ready to offer up some of our personal favorites.
