Are there any inexpensive hotels in the Seattle Center Area? Motel 6 quality?All the things we want to see and do are in that area, so wanted something within walking distance.

Also, we wanted to go the Aquarium on embarktion day. From my understanding the NCL Spirit should be a pier 66 and the Aquarium is at pier 59. How far is the distance? Could we easily walk from one pier to the another? Where can we place our luggage so we don't have to drag it with us or go back to the hotel to retrieve it? Thanks for the info.

I just got group space for our group at Comfort Suites Seattle Center on recommendation of a couple of people who live in Washington.. Good location, continental breakfast, shuttle to Pioneer Square/PIke Market area (complimentary, about 1 mile) and only $3-4 cab fare to pier. Most of us want to spend time IN Seattle and will just use hotel to sleep and also want to spend money on excurions etc in Alaska and not on expensive hotel in Seattle... we are going June 2-4..

There is a concierge desk at Pier 66 where you can leave your bags. We were there around Labor Day and the cost was $3/bag. It is an easy walk from there to the Aquarium - maybe about 10 minutes.

We are going May 21. We also just want the hotel for necessities and not spend alot of money for something fancy. Also want to avoid cabs as much as possible to get around. Still working on how to figure out their bus/mono system.

The concierge sounds great. We won't have too much time to spend in Seattle and being able to drop our bags and walk to the Aquarium will fit our schedule perfect. Do we just pick them up again when we are ready to go to the ship or will they tranfer them to the ship for us?

go to www.seattlesupersaver.com (http://www.seattlesupersaver.com). you can get the names and addresses of hotels and pick one that is in the area you want and has some ammenities for you. it is a good research site with maps and they have some pretty good prices with not fees for booking. good luck.

We booked the Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza in Seattle for 55 dollars a night through priceline...we are going in early June. I though that was very reasonable for the downtown location. Good luck!

Another cheap option is to stay at the airport and take the express bus into Seattle- goes to the tunnel. There is a Pioneer stop and West Lake stop is walking distance to Pikes Market- great bargain. :)
