Source: I live in Vancouver, have family in Seattle, have stayed in Seattle downtown recently (at a hotel), and used to regularly ride the Amtrak multiple times per year.
I also live in Seattle and am pretty up on costs here including hotels (we sometimes stay downtown when social events like convention demand). Hotel prices are completely dependent on which hotel and when. I've seen hotels downtown Seattle for $200 a night (before taxes). That was this last December when we were pricing for a work event we planned to fly people in for. This was the price for the Hyatt Regency as well as Hyatt Olive 8. The Grand Hyatt was $250 plus tax.
Every individual needs to price out based on their budgets AND the time they are traveling.
I stated the additional trains because I saw a story just recently about expanding the line. I used a jump to conclusion mat and have already corrected my statement in a later reply.
