My directions below may differ from GPS or a Map Request.
DIRECTIONS: From Northbound I-5 coming from SeaTac
Take Exit 166 - Olive Way, at the fifth stop light take a left on Broadway East - go through the business district (about 5 blocks). At the end of the business district, Broadway East veers off to the right and turns into 10th Avenue East. Go 2 more blocks and take a left on East Prospect, go one block and we are on the SW corner of Broadway East and East Prospect. If you miss Exit 166, take Exit 168 A - Lakeview Blvd (I use this one as it is faster but doesn't introduce you to the Shopping District). Turn right at stop sign onto Lakeview Blvd E., at next stop sign at Belmont Pl. E. turn left up the hill, in about 1/4 of a mile it will turn you left onto E. Roy St. Just before stoplight (Theater on your Right) turn left onto Broadway E. Go two blocks and we are on the SW corner of Broadway East and East Prospect.
DIRECTIONS: (From I-90 westbound, take I-5 north & follow directions above)
DIRECTIONS: (From I-5 Southbound) (From Vancouver, BC)
Take exit 168 A-Roanoke Street. At the light take a left onto East Roanoke, go 2 more lights and take a right on 10th Avenue East and follow it up the hill. At the top of the hill on the right-hand side, you will see a large cathedral. Go 2 more blocks and take a right on East Prospect, go one block and we are on the SW corner of Broadway East and East Prospect.
DIRECTIONS: (From SR-520 Westbound) a Toll Bridge over Lake Washington
Take the Roanoke Street exit at the very end of the freeway and take a right onto East Roanoke and follow directions for I-5 southbound above.
DIRECTIONS: (From downtown)
Take James, Madison, Denny Way, or Olive Way away from downtown or East and take a left on Broadway or Broadway East. Broadway automatically turns into Broadway East at Denny Way and the numbers start over again at 100. Follow instructions for Northbound I-5 from here (the Olive Way ones after you turn on Broadway E.).
Also, you can take the 49 bus from 4th and Pine up to Capitol Hill stop at 10th Ave E and E Prospect or get on the light rail at any stop and use directions below as same from Airport.
DIRECTIONS: (From Sea-Tac Airport via public transportation)
Easy Low Cost Option: Light Rail from the airport is open and running all the way from the SeaTac Airport to THE CAPITOL HILL STATION AND IS BUT 7 BLOCKS SOUTH OF US AT BROADWAY E AND E. JOHN AN EASY FLAT WALK JUST GO NORTH 5 BLOCKS AND VEER LEFTISH AT E ROY AND GO 2 MORE BLOCKS. THE 49 BUS WILL STOP AT STATION AND BRING YOU TO 10TH AVE E AND E PROSPECT IF YOU WANT TO WAIT FOR IT and then walk one block west and we are on the SW corner of Broadway E and E Prospect. Follow instructions at airport, taking the bridge from upper level of terminal over and through to the north end of parking garage. The fare is $3.00. There are fare card machines and it is the honor system to tap the Orca card at the bottom of escalator and also at top of escalator when you get off. The fine is stiff for non-payment or activation. You can charge more on the ORCA transit card that is sold at the Airport and Westlake Station or the QFC grocery store 4 blocks down the street to use for the rest of your stay or be added on later at a fare machine.
TOWN CAR SERVICE:
If you prefer to make your transportation arrangement before arrival, I recommend that you call or email the following for a professional pickup at the airport or the mansion. If you would like, we will do it for you upon your request. We will need your flight number and arrival time. Also, they will need your cell phone number. Contact United Transportation at 206-349-6869 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be speaking with Brooke, who if he can't directly take care of you, will have one of his other drivers pick you up. Airport Taxi service can be spotty, as they often have a tough time finding us and many have switched to natural gas so half their trunk is now filled with the tank limiting luggage room. Also, the town car rate will be slightly less than an airport taxi. Current rate is $45 but subject to change (gas$), so reconfirm when reserving and let them know that you were referred by us for the special rate. REALLY THE BEST DEAL, I USE THEM MYSELF AND SO DO MANY OF MY FRIENDS. Better deal than an airport taxi.
You may text us at 206-650-6310 if you have an immediate question.
