Seattle Southside Meeting Planning Overview
The ideal location for your Pacific Northwest event, Seattle Southside offers convenient access to Sea-Tac Intl. Airport, a short Link Light Rail ride to downtown Seattle, and more affordable hotel rates to make your event a success. We are centrally located in the Pacific Northwest, nestled between Seattle and Tacoma, with ease of access to iconic Washington state landmarks such as the Space Needle, Pike Place Market and Mount Rainier. The area offers many unique options for meetings of all sizes, including the Museum of Flight, the largest air and space museum in the US. Here you will find over fifty hotels in close proximity to the airport, offering rates typically twenty to thirty percent less than downtown Seattle, as well as complimentary airport shuttles. In addition to being an exceptional meeting destination, we provide complimentary services to planners who host their events in our area, including site sourcing, site visit coordination, itinerary planning, PR and media services, and complimentary area guides, maps and registration bags.
Seattle Southside offers many unique venue opportunities, all within reach of downtown Seattle. At the world-famous Museum of Flight, dine under a Blackbird Spy Plane, or under WWII fighter planes serenaded by a big band group, or next to the only NASA Space Shuttle Trainer where every Space Shuttle astronaut trained for missions. For a more serene atmosphere, hold your event at the Beach Park Event Center, a retreat camp in a beautiful green forested park, adjacent to a pristine, rocky beach that has been repurposed as an event space. In addition, over twenty-five hotels offer event space ranging in size from an intimate board room setting, to massive ballrooms capable of hosting 2,200 event attendees. The Crowne Plaza Seattle Airport and the Doubletree by Hilton Seattle Airport offer amazing views from their large windowed space of Mt. Rainier and South Seattle. Cedarbrook Lodge's event spaces overlook lush wetlands and forest with a luxuriously rustic lodge-like atmosphere.
