Public transport: Central Link Light Rail goes from the Seattle airport to downtown Seattle for $2.75 (one-way, adult fare). The train runs approximately every 10 minutes. The University Station stop is only a few blocks from the convention center and most of the AAS hotels.
Details on light rail: To ride the light rail, follow the signs to "Link Light Rail" at baggage claim. Much of the walk is outside. If you see a train stopped on the platform as you approach, you don't necessarily have to hurry; it's the end of the line so the train waits there. Buy your ticket at the machines straight ahead as you approach the train, then head up either of the escalators. If the train is stopped on the platform, you can push the big red button to open the doors and get aboard.
The ride is about 40 minutes. You want the University Station or Westlake stop depending on your hotel location (map), but they are very close to each other. The tickets are an honor system - usually no one will check it, but there's a fine if you are aboard without one when the conductor swings by. For Seattle bus and train arrival times (updated in real time) use pugetsound.onebusaway.org.
Rental car: If you rent a car, consider arranging a ride-share above. If you wait until the last minute, consider offering rides using the Twitter hashtag #AASride. Seattle has zipcar and car2go for car rentals (find nearby cars with your phone and rent with the tap of a smartcard).
