Complimentary Local Area Shuttle

For your convenience our Hotel Nexus provides a complimentary shuttle service that takes you to and from well known, exciting and popular attractions including Downtown Seattle where you can find bars, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. There are three route zones, one for the University District,  one for the Northgate Mall area, and the other for Downtown attractions. The hotel shuttle runs like a bus route departing from the hotel and running through the destinations before returning to the hotel. In order to efficiently serve the greatest number of guests we cannot deviate from the scheduled times or pick up and drop off points. Thank you for understanding.

Located about five miles from our Hotel Nexus, the University District Seattle stretches from Ravenna to Portage Bay and from I-5 to Lake Washington. Hotel guests tend to frequent the “U District” because of the many shopping and dining opportunities, but that’s not the only reason. Museums, public art, theaters, sporting events and outdoor festivals also contribute to the lively University District scene.

All shuttles are subject to availability (first come/first serve basis). Please reserve your seats for specific Departure and Pick Up with the Front Desk. All times are contingent upon traffic conditions. Please be at the pick-up location prior to the time indicated below. Questions? Please call 206-365-0700 to reserve transporation up to 24 hours in advance.
