Alternate Accommodations for:

SCRABBLE® in Seattle 2006 -- Memorial Day Weekend - May 27, 28, & 29

Our block of rooms at the Red Lion is full (as of March 28th), and it appears they are booked solid for the Memorial Weekend. There are still other places to stay, and I've listed a few options below.

Note: the rates listed here are for guidance only (some are web specials)--you may get a different rate when you contact these hotels yourself. You might also try using Expedia or Travelocity to get a good rate—that's where some the best rates I've found came from.

Updated April 20th:
Some of the cheaper rates shown below are no longer available, although I did find a few at Travelocity today:
The cheapest nearby was Kings Inn at about $110 (about a half mile from the Red Lion), Travelodge near Seattle Center (about 1 mile) about $129 (but got mixed reviews from people who stayed there last year), and the Holiday Inn 211 Dexter about $139 (about 1.2 miles away). You can also find various deals at hotels near the airport for around $90 (and you can take the 194 bus from the airport directly to the Red Lion for $1.50, takes about 35 minutes).
