Emerald City Comic Con is BACK from August 18-21 in Seattle! #ComicConSeattle

Coming to town for the great Northwest comic and pop culture spectacle at the Seattle Convention Center? Great! But don’t book your room just yet…We’ve got some tips on how to save some money and have the best comic con experience. But first, if you haven't already done so, buy tickets to Comic Con here before they're all sold out.

If you’re looking for a hotel, you might find that prices for hotels in downtown Seattle during ECCC have skyrocketed. Here's a tip...much better deals can be found at the top-rated hotels to the south. Seattle Southside hotels are typically priced 20-30% less than their downtown Seattle counterparts and the price difference may be even more dramatic during major events like ECCC. Booking a hotel in SeaTac, Tukwila, or Des Moines will keep money in your pocket and get you out of the hectic big city.

If you’re worried about getting to the event from the south, don’t be. The Link Light Rail is an inexpensive, fast way to go from SeaTac or Tukwila right to the Washington State Convention Center. Buy tickets for the light rail by downloading the Transit Go Ticket app on your phone.

Once you have your hotel booked and your light rail tickets purchased, you’re all set! Enjoy the wonders of Emerald City Comic Con and have a good time.
