Because this year’s event is being held in downtown, the SSTA did not reserve a block of rooms at any one hotel.  We wanted to allow flexibility in regards to your booking and have provided a number of hotels to assist you.  Please review the list below.  August is a very busy time in Seattle and hotels will be at capacity, so please reserve your room as quickly as possible.


Thank you and safe travels!!!
