Directions to the Hotel Monaco from SeaTac airport: You can get to the Hotel Monaco via taxi or Light Rail (see below for instructions).

Light Rail (Sound Transit)
Seattle’s new link light rail picks up at the airport terminal (Airport Station) and takes approximately 35–40 minutes to reach University Station traveling north. This is less time than it would take to drive and park. Service is available from approximately 5:00am until midnight daily and the fare is $2.50 for adults ($2.00 children age 6-18). This is a very efficient, easy, and less expensive way to get to and from the hotel. You can purchase your train ticket at the SeaTac Airport rail station before boarding the train.

The SeaTac / Airport Light Rail Station is connected to the fourth floor of the Airport Garage. Trains arrive and depart on the platform level of the station. The covered, level walkway to the Airport Terminal is one level down on the mezzanine. The well-lit walkway is separated from the main area of the garage and directional signs point the way to the Main Terminal skybridge. Wheelchair service is available. Click here for a map showing the light rail station at the airport.

Take the train to the University Street Station. From the station walk uphill one block northeast, away from the water, on Seneca Street to 4th Avenue. Turn right at 4th Ave. The Hotel Monaco will be on your right at 1101 4th, Avenue.
