Sleeping in Seattle

Jump to last reply

Flying into Sea-Tac right after Labor Day to start a two week trip to the great northwest..My husband and I will spend our first three days in Seattle. I was about to book a downtown hotel near Pike's market and that precipitated a discussion about our car rental. My thought is we are better off without a car and can use cabs, public transportation, etc.(rental rates off-airport are often better.) My husband hates it when he doesn't have a car and looks at cities as a challenge and I do admit he is great at driving, navigating and finding parking. His preferred method is to stay out a ways, get a motel and work his way in. So,experienced Seattle travelers which is it? One way definitely better than another or it simply doesn't matter? Thanks Fodor, you make our trips!! Carol
PS.Top three don't miss things to see or do in Seattle??
