There are so many things to love about working at SeaTacPark. When asked, staff are quick to list many of their perks.

SeaTac Park has the “best” staff! The whole team works together to offer exceptional service from start to finish. They work hard but also play hard. It’s a real pleasure to spend time with these guys. They crack jokes and tease one another, smiling and having a blast the whole time. It’s truly heartening to know that the second you pulled onto the lot you became a part of this fantastic family.

Considering that SeaTacPark is open 24/7, staff really appreciate that they have such accommodating and flexible scheduling options. While they plan and organize who will be on what shift, you can rest assured that at any point and time during your visit there are professionals on staff ready to assist you.

Staff greatly respect that SeaTacPark strives to focus on environmentally friendly processes. The entire reservation services are paperless. Electrical outlets are available for to accommodate electric vehicles. To top it all off, there is a system in place that “separates out contaminates such as sediment and oil from the lot runoff before the water is released into the city’s stormwater system”.

However, the most consistent response from employees regarding their favorite thing about working at SeaTacPark is the numerous interesting people they get to meet. YOU, our patrons. You are SeatacPark’s favorite thing. Just thought you would want to know.

Next time you take the shuttle, feel free to talk with the drive and ask them for yourself. They will be happy to share their favorite thing about working for this almost 20 year old company. Oh, and tell them about yourself because that’s often what they look forward to during their day.

Park with Us this Winter; We’ll Take Good Care of You!

This winter we’re fighting against this season’s treacherous weather with not one, but two snow plows. So this is one less thing for you to worry about while you’re traveling: you can park your car with us assured that your car won’t get stuck in our lot.

Once you enter and park your car in our lot our shuttle will pick you up car side and our dirver will help you and your traveling companions load your luggage onto the shuttle. And when you return, our shuttle will meet you in a covered area at the airport to help you board the shuttle and then will drop you off in our lot by your car and the driver will assist with moving your luggage from the shuttle to your car. No leaving keys with valets or long walks or waits in the cold necessary.

No matter the weather, you’ll be able to get in and out of our lot safely at all times. We’re glad we’re able to offer this small peace of mind to our guests.

In addition to safe entrance and exit to and from our lot, we also offer friendly staff with smiling faces, free water bottles, and kid’s packs; and if you’re new to our lot, our staff will guide you through everything you need to know to ensure your experience is as smooth and comfortable as possible.


Advances in Airport Technology

Given that we are located in an airport town and our customers are travelers who explore airports all around the globe, we understand the value of airport technology and how its constant growth and improvements benefit all travelers.

In recent years, we have seen rapid increase in the popularity of Seattle as a destination and with that, we have seen first hand the technological advancements made in our own airport (Seattle – Tacoma International Airport) and there are even more improvements in the works!

We recently discovered a tool that works as an interactive guide for some of the most technologically advanced airports in the U.S. We’d like to thank Gary Bell from AT&T Internet Service for making us aware of this resource. So, if you’re looking for airports that will make for a smoother more delightful travel experience, make sure you take a look at “Top 15 High Tech Airports in America“.
