A quick overnight at the SeaTac Holiday Inn on International Boulevard made us grateful the weather is cool and rainy. Our first room wouldn't drop below about 76 degrees despite the intervention of the maintenance man who jump-started the compressor. The window didn't open so we called the Front Desk, who offered us another room shortly after 11:00 p.m. The air conditioner didn't work any better but at least we could open the window.
Better some noise than an all-night sauna but it's not our favorite kind of choice. This is our first night in an Intercontinental property since being comped to Gold in a cute promotion run for Hilton Hhonors members when Hilton devalued its points. Not the greatest start, even at a relatively cheap rate.
