I'm going to Seattle for the series against the Mariners in June. Does anyone know which hotel the Sox stay over there? Thanks!

This is from the Seattle PI:

Q: What's the most popular hotel in Seattle for visiting baseball teams?

AG: Gone are the days when the Crowne Plaza was the Seattle home away from home for most visiting teams. Teams stay at five different Seattle hotels now. The W Hotel is the most popular, with five teams lodging there (Anaheim, Cleveland, Texas, Toronto and Houston).

I do know that all of the possible hotels where they might stay are very close together (easy walking distance from one to the other).

So that eliminates W and Crowne Plaza. My guess is the Westin.

Would the Sox give out this info if you said you were a fan and simply wanted to greet them there? I'd think they would.

I will let you know. My sister has the info on where they stay in every city. She's a bit of a Sox groupie.

A lot of teams used to list them in their Media Guide. I don't know if the Mariners or White Sox are one of those teams.

I think you can call the White Sox and they'll tell you: (312)674-1000

Or you can try the Mariners. I don't know why it would be a big secret.

I took Sas1974's advice. They'll be at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel. It's kind of pricey though. $170 a night for 2.

I have really good seats for all three games:

Friday
section 124, row 18

Saturday
section 127, row 13

Sunday
section 136, row 14 :)

Be prepared my friend, the Sox have been BRUTAL out here for what seems like forever. I get ill when I think of Sox games in Safeco... I was there for the final 2000 play-off game and about three Keith Foulke blown saves. Maybe they can reverse the trend this season.

According to the White Sox media guide they stay at the Renaissance Madison.

I have pretty good seats as well, I do not have the invoice with me right now, but by looking on the Safeco (when I called ticketmaster, they pronounced it Sa-FEE-co) seating chart, i think we are in section 135 and 134, not sure on the rows but we are around there.

I intend on being there as well. I do not have tickets as of yet. I plan on going to the Saturday game only. I found some good seats on EBAY currently, the best seats the TM gives me are in the outfield
