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.
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.
