Question More Transportation Questions ...Link, Monorail, Transit Passes, etc.

I have another question, guys.

What type of transportation is the best for getting from Sea-Tac Airport to Downtown Seattle?

I'm looking for something that's cheap and convenient.

I'm currently looking into this:

Shuttle Express Seatac Airport Shuttle Seattle - Limo Service - Shuttle Service - Airport Transportation - Town Car (http://www.shuttleexpress.com/index.html - broken link)

Would you guys recommend this Shuttle Express, or something else?

Yes, take the light rail from the airport and get off at Stadium station, walk down to the hotel. It probably would cost you $2.50

Agree with the posts above. You definitely can't get cheaper or more convenient than the Link Right Rail where you're going, especially now that it runs all the way to and from the airport.

I've done some research on the Sound Transit Link.

After arriving at the hotel, I plan to take the Link to Westlake, and then take the Monorail to Seattle Center. Then I'll repeat to get back to the hotel. All this including the initial ride from Sea-Tac to the Stadium station.

Would a Day Pass be enough for all these trips?

Monorail is a private transit system ... no transfers from county transit. Busses are free in the downtown area. You can get within walking distance of Seattle Center on a free bus.
