Commute from the airport

You arrive at SEA-TAC airport, proceed to the luggage/ground transportation. The most common way from the airport to Redmond/Bellevue is to take a taxi/rent a car (there is not much of public transportation in Seattle area). Taxi is ~50 USD to Bellevue/Redmond. There is also a shared shuttle service 28$ for 1, 36$ for 2 people.

It is recommended to rent a car or taxi that's the most efficient way to commute here. Driving directions depends on the hotel you re going to. But in order to get to Bellevue/Redmond, you always take I-405 north (follow pointers) and then take either 13 or 14th exits.


Recommended hotels close to Microsoft:

  1. Mariott Residence Inn Bellevue. 0.8mi from Microsoft, free shuttle to Microsoft campus and anything else within 5 miles. . Expedia gives a rate 157 USD.
  2. Fairfield Inn - . 1mi from Microsoft. No shuttle service, but cheaper: Expedia gives a rate 134 USD.

There are cheaper hotels in the center of Bellevue: DoubleTree (~120$), BestWestern Bellevue Inn (~90$), but they are 20min drive from campus. If you don't plan on renting a car, the taxi within Bellevue will cost ~10-20$.
