Hilton Garden Inn & Vicinity

Note the green square - that's for an electric vehicle complete with a charger. Lots of parking for HGI & the Future of Flight combined.


Below is my submitted review to TripAdvisor verbatim:


Came to Hilton Garden Inn Seattle North on a Friday for a visit to the Trip Advisor ® Certificate of Excellence winning Future of Flight Museum, the Collings Foundation B-17 ride and the subsequent Saturday Flying Heritage Collection American Airpower Fly Day... very happy I did, got a lot of value for money for an avgeek vacation. The service was great, the sleep was legendary, the food tasted good and I was treated right.


See I came in off of a Skagit Transit County Connector + taxi connection to the hotel and was allowed to stash my bag until I could check into a suite. As documented in the photos, the suite was rather spacious and very clean. I had access to a microwave, coffee machine, refrigerator and a bathroom plus if I choose a nice desk.


Really, truly appreciate the great service from the complimentary shuttle from the hotel to Historic Flight for my B-17 ride. Since the comms to the shuttle to return me were fumbled and I had to wait, I received a complimentary fish & chips dinner. The fish was okay, the fries/chips were great as was the service in the hotel restaurant.


After more photo taking and a stop into the business center (no fee to use their computer to use the Internet briefly), I went up to my suite for the evening. The view from the hotel of the Boeing flightline and the Future of Flight was amazing. The adjustable sleep was so good my cell phone alarm didn't wake me, only the hotel wake-up call service (free) did eight plus hours later.


Decided to hop down to the restaurant for a small cup of coffee, a buttermilk pancake & bacon breakfast. The food was so good, I didn't stop to take a picture until well over half done with my meal.


Finally, I checked out of the hotel and after a $50 hold was released, I received a kind complimentary shuttle to the Flying Heritage Collection for their Fly Day. Took many great photos.


Overall, no issues with the hotel. Best of the best... please if you can, stay here and be kind to the staff.
