F5 Networks Headquarters 351 Elliott Ave Seattle, WA 98119
When you arrive
Take the elevator the 5th floor. At the reception desk there, they will issue a badge that gives you access to the meeting room. The conference room is Diablo, back on the 1st floor.
Please help yourself to beverages in the refrigerator immediately outside the meeting room.
Transportation from the Airport
If you are price-insensitive, a taxi from the airport costs about US$50. During rush hour, this might be slower than the transit options.
Link Light Rail runs from the airport to downtown for $3 every 6-15 minutes, 20 hours per day. The ticket machine accepts credit cards. Westlake Station is 2km from F5, and easy walking distance to many hotels.
Getting to F5
There are multiple ways to cover the last stretch to the office, in declining order of hassle:
- Taxis, Uber, and Lyft are all easy to get downtown and will cost about $5.
- The Monorail costs $2.25, and is accessible by elevator from the Westlake mezzanine. It is fast and fun. It drops you off by the Space Needle, which is a 15-minute walk from F5 but very convenient for several hotels.
- Buses are frequent and convenient all day. From Westlake, you can catch a bus to F5 on 3rd Avenue. Routes 24 and 33 pass directly in front of the office; routes D, 1, 2, and 13 all pass with 5 blocks of it. If you’re going to use the bus at all on the trip, buy an ORCA card at the light rail ticket machine instead of a one-way train ticket. It works like farecards elsewhere in the world, and makes the train-to-bus transfer free.
- If the weather cooperates and you travel light, it is a pleasant and scenic walk along the waterfront.
There is no need to rent a car in the central city. If you do, there is no free parking at F5. There are several pay lots nearby that charge about $10 a day.
The following hotels have an “F5 Rate,” if you call them, and is the best available at the time. The first is across the street from F5 and by far the most convenient.
