Discussion Roommate wanted for midwinter Westin Seattle share

by Susan McClelland on Mon, Jan 21, 2013 at 10:34 am

Going to midwinter? I am seeking a roommate to share the cost of my double-double room ($173 per night) reserved at the Westin Seattle Hotel for Friday, Jan 25 - Jan 28 (departing Tuesday). By all accounts this is a very nice hotel with close proximity to all of downtown Seattle. I prefer a nonsmoker. Females only, please.
