  1. Looks as if we will need to stay Sunday night as well. Thanks for the hotel information. Is the team hotel known yet?

    Other hotel possibilities are in downtown Seattle using the monorail from its downtown terminus to its other end near Key Arena. Downtown Seattle is an interesting place to stay.

    You can dispense with a rental car by using the light rail connection between the airport and one of the downtown stations.
