Places to Stay

For help finding lodging for your stay, contact Guest Services.

Arranging Your Stay

Arrange for lodging as soon as you find out that you're coming to Seattle Children’s. Some accommodations and financial assistance can take several weeks to arrange.


Most patient rooms have a sleeper chair or couch where one parent or guardian can sleep at night. Staying bedside depends on the patient's condition, available space and safety. Ask your nurse about the rules for your child’s unit. Siblings and visitors may not stay overnight. See the visiting section to learn more

RV/Trailer Parking

We offer a few RV/trailer parking spots with electrical and water hookups for patient families. These spots are by reservation only and available for parents and caregivers of current patients who meet the eligibility requirements.

You may be eligible to park your RV/trailer at Seattle Children’s if:

  • You are a legal parent or caregiver of a current patient, or you are a patient of Seattle Children’s Prenatal Diagnosis and Treatment Program.
  • Your home is at least 45 miles from the hospital’s campus.
  • You are not a resident of the Ronald McDonald House.
  • You plan to use the RV/trailer as a residence, in place of other accommodations.

If you meet the eligibility requirements, please call Guest Services at 206-987-9330 to register for a space.
