Bellevue (WA) Embassy Suites to SEA-TAC - time to drive on weekends?

I will be staying at this Embassy Suites this Fri and Sat night.

I will be picking up family from the airport after a 11 AM arrival on Saturday, and dropping them for a 9:30 AM departure on Sunday.

Mapquest states that it takes 21 minutes to drive between the 2 destinations (I presume that means normal, non-rush hour traffic?). The hotel agent stated that even on a weekend, it takes 60-90 minutes to travel between the 2 locations in either direction. Who is right?

I think 30m is reasonable. Won't be any traffic that early on Sunday. Saturday, depending on if there are large events happening in downtown Seattle, it could take a little longer. But I don't think it would take 90m unless there was an accident that closed the highway.

I guess that 60 minutes is more compatible with weekday, busy non-rush hour traffic, and 90 minutes is more compatible with weekday, busy rush hour traffic?

21 minutes will never happen, even in the best of traffic conditions.

Bellevue to SEA shouldn't take more than 30 minutes, I lived in Redmond, which is even further out than Bellevue and on a weekday it took around 30 minutes. even on a week day you are going against traffic generally. barring any accidents or rain, 30 minutes on a weekend should be plenty.
