My husband and I travel frequently for leisure, and Cedarbrook Lodge is one of the best hotels we have ever experienced. They are a ten minute drive from Seatac airport - they offer a free shuttle to and from the airport.
The staff is very professional and service all around is excellent. We dined at the Copperleaf Restaurant and were very pleased with the service and food quality. There is an emphasis on local food and drink, which we appreciate since one of the main reasons we travel is for the "foodie" experience.
The free breakfast buffet is without a doubt the BEST we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Items offered include house-made granola with dried fruit, hazelnuts, and almonds; smoked salmon; an assortment of breads, rolls, and bagels; boiled eggs; oatmeal; cold cereal; coffee, juices, hot cider, hot cocoa, and my favorite (and not a cheap item, either!) - a selection of Mighty Leaf teas!
While we were walking the outdoor paths along the protected wetlands area, we saw a few garden beds and several fig trees - we were later told that the restaurant grows some of its own fruit, vegetables and herbs. The landscaping is beautiful; we enjoyed just being outdoors and were amazed at how clean and crisp the air is, even though the hotel is close to an airport.
We stayed in one of the suites with a fireplace. It was more spacious than we expected, and very clean. Each building has a common area with a fireplace and free snacks such as potato chips, malted milk balls, yogurt, string cheese, bottled water (usually NOT free at hotels!), and mini containers of Haagen Dazs.
We received an incredible deal as AAA members (about 2/3 off regular price for staying 3 nights), so I hope that they continue offering AAA discounts. We will certainly return to Cedarbrook when we visit Seattle. The value for the price is hard to beat.
