18 Seattle Hotels with Free (or Discounted) Cruise Parking

When it comes to cruise parking, Seattle has most expensive city we’ve ever found. It’s even more expensive than cruise hubs like Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. Much of this is due to the port’s location. Situated near downtown in a densely populated city, land is expensive and parking is in short supply.

But one of the best deals in cruising is that some hotels will allow you to park in their lot a discount to regular parking if you stay with them for a night. So if you are planning to stay the night in Seattle anyway, you can also get your parking handled as well.

Port of Seattle aerial shot

Now we’ve found that most of the hotels most convenient to the port don’t offer parking while you cruise. In fact, most places near the ports charge hefty prices for parking even on the nights you stay with them.

There are a few hotels, however, that offer free or discounted parking around town, especially those near the airport. (Keep in mind that if you park here, you will still have to pay for a ride to/from the cruise terminal.)

We suggest that if you plan to stay in Seattle before or after your cruise and have a hotel in mind, then give the hotel a call and see if they offer a parking package while you sail. If the hotel is at least a few miles from the port and has a decent-sized parking lot, it’s a good chance they will allow you to leave your car there as an incentive for your business.

If not, then the list below should offer you up plenty of options.

Seattle Hotels with Cruise Parking

The Warwick Seattle Hotel
The Warwick is one of the few hotels we found downtown that offers cruise parking. The “Warwick Park & Cruise” deal includes parking for up to 8 days along with a full breakfast for two. While the package doesn’t mention transport to the cruise terminal, it’s only a 10-minute walk to Pier 66 (or a 10-minute ride to Pier 91). This is your best option if you want somewhere to park your car and also a convenient location to explore downtown Seattle.

Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center 
Like its DoubleTree cousin, this hotel is a little nicer and a perfect place for those who plan to drive in to the area for their cruise. The hotel offers several different packages, but for those looking for parking, there is the “Park N Cruise” deal. This package gives you parking included in the rate for eight nights, plus a round trip ride to and from the cruise port. One thing to note: During our search we found this package for about $170 more than the normal base rate. At that rate, it is not a discount versus parking at the port.

Red Roof Inn Seattle Airport
Head toward the airport and you’ll find a number of hotels with cruise parking available. That’s because they cater to travelers that often drive to the airport and need somewhere to leave their car as they fly. This Red Roof Inn offers an affordable stay. When we called, we were quoted a price of $139.99 for a room and seven days of parking included. But you had to call the hotel to book (206-248-0901).

SureStay by Best Western SeaTac Airport North
A relatively affordable place to stay, this hotel caters to travelers with several different parking packages of varying lengths.

We found rates on the hotel website of about $185 for a room and seven days of parking (offers range from 5-21 days of parking). That’s a deal considering parking at the port would run about $150 for the same length of time.

Seattle Airport Marriott
Think of a hotel by the airport, you and likely think of classic utilitarian hotels. The Marriott is anything but. It’s a much nicer hotel than your normal airport accommodations.

Packages are different prices based on whether you pick the 3, 7, or 12-day offer. Rates for the 7-day parking were about $90 over the normal rate during our search.

If driving in for your cruise, they have a parking offer for your car. You can park in their garage for $14 per night while you’re away.

Best Western Seattle Airport

This hotel offers perhaps one of the best deals in parking if you also need a place to stay the night before. During our search we found rates for around $190 for a Friday night stay during the summer. But they also offer a “Park and Stay” package that includes your room and seven nights of parking. We saw rates of $215 for the package, meaning you get a week’s parking for just $25. That’s the cost of a single day of parking at the cruise port.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the closest hotel to the ports with cruise parking?
The closest hotel that we’ve found is The Warwick Seattle Hotel. This hotel is only about a 10-minute walk from Pier 66. If sailing from Pier 91, then you will need a short Uber/Lyft over to the port. 

Are there any hotels with free cruise parking?
In our search, we found a number of hotels with “free” parking included if you booked the package for your stay. While these packages typically cost more then just a regular night’s stay, they often include other perks than just parking.

Most of the hotels by the airport have packages for flyers. Can I book these for cruise parking?
Obviously hotels near the airport cater to those flying out of Sea-Tac with their parking package. However, there is no rule saying you have to head to a flight to take advantage. We suggest booking one of these packages and then leaving your car while you head to the cruise port instead of the airport.
