Transportation to Western Washington University/Four Points by Sheraton Bellingham

You may fly directly to Bellingham Airport (or indirectly--we've seen roundtrips in the neighborhood of $400), or fly into Sea-Tac (Seattle-Tacoma International Airport) and then rent a car or take a Bellair Shuttle (reserve ahead of time) to get to Bellingham (a drive of a bit more than 90 minutes). Or, you can fly into Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada, so you will need your passport, of course), and then drive or shuttle south across the international border to Bellingham (a bit less than a 90 minute drive).

The Bellair Airporter Shuttle has shuttles from SeaTac (Seattle Airport) to the Four Points by Sheraton Bellingham Hotel. You will be wise to reserve ahead of time:  1-866-235-5247. Visit the Bellair Airporter Shuttle Website for more information about schedules and pricing (currently $76 round-trip) and to make a reservation:
