“Excellent Location for Taking in Seattle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

This was my first time to Seattle and I came a few days prior to a conference to sight-see in the downtown area. Looking for the best location, I chose the Inn at the Market. It was perfect! Literally, steps away from the Market. We were able to eat breakfast there each morning and see all the vendors with the gorgeous produce, fresh fish, and flowers. What a way to start the day! Even though it was February, we were able to walk most places; the Space Needle, Pioneer Square, the Library, the Aquarium, etc. I'm sure public transportation was available, but we took advantage of seeing the city by foot.

Our room was a large, spacious room with two queen beds. It was suprisingly peaceful, quiet and relaxing for being in such a great location. We ordered room service a couple of times from the Inn's Cafe and it was quite good. The room had a bar/kitchenette was wonderful when we handled food or drinks. A deep sink, small fridge, snacks, all very handy! The bed also had individual reading lights that were very cool and added much needed light to what would have been a dim room.

The staff were exceptional as well. The bellhops assisted us with transportation and our bags each time, and the front desk staff were eager to answer our questions. On one trip my mother accidently left her camera in a taxi, Carmen at the Inn went above and beyond in tracking down the taxi and the camera and getting it sent back to my mom! That showed the exceptional work of the staff at the Inn.

I would absolutely recommend the Inn at the Market to anyone traveling in downtown Seattle and wanting a peaceful place to stay. I hope to travel there again someday and would love to stay there again.

This was our first stay at the Inn. We booked on line and took advantage of a package that gave parking, fresh flowers in the room, and a $50 credit at a local shop (Watson Kennedy or Fini). Valet met us promptly which was a blessing because of the heavy Pikes Place Market traffic. Our check in went smoothly and very friendly. But we were completely BLOWN AWAY by the room. We got a 2nd story view room -- and WHAT A VIEW!!! looked right down on the Market, Post Alley, and the water. We watched the ferris wheel spin, and the Ferry float by. The floor to ceiling windows opened wide for a mini balcony. We had wonderful little table in the room and took advantage of the amazing people watching while eating smoked salmon, fresh berries, cheese, crackers, wine, and fruit all from the market. We had a little mishap with a knife cutting our apples and the front desk RAN up with band aids and moral support abounding. Did I mention that the room was super pretty, comfortable, and CLEAN! The only slight critique is that the shower was fairly narrow - if you're a slim jim maybe the curtain won't cling to you while showering, but it really wanted to hug me. What can I say except every day since we've been back we've said ... can't wait to go back and stay at the Inn. Yes, it's a little pricey but we've stayed at almost every other (comparably priced 4 star hotel) in the vicinity and this is hands-down our new favorite.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner view!

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn at the Market recently. Following a celebratory event downtown, it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. We purchased the package that included parking and a restaurant voucher with the city view room. When I checked in, we were upgraded to a bay view room with a private deck (!) for the same price! Even in February, it was great to be out on the deck at night and the next morning. We had a bottle of wine and 2 mini cupcakes waiting for us when we arrived at 10:30 p.m. We were still hungry but room service was over. However, Cafe Campagne was gracious enough to offer us a cheese plate and salad. That was great and tided us over until the next morning when we had a lovely brunch in the restaurant. I highly recommend this hotel in the Pike Place Market!

Room Tip: 7th floor has a private deck and great views of Elliot Bay.

The Inn at the Market is only a few blocks from the Link Light Rail station at Westlake making it a quick and inexpensive trip to and from the airport. Once there, we were close to everything downtown. Even with the rain we never had to get wet going to see sights, shop, or eat. This was the first time we have not rented a car when visiting Seattle but found that using this location as a base did not require one. The room was a partial water view and while a bit small, was adequate to meet our needs. Two large flat screen TV's were a nice touch. The staff was pleasant and helpful as other reviewers have noted. We will stay here again.

The best thing about the Inn at the Market is the location. We stayed for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary. The Inn is about 3 blocks from the Light Rail to the airport. When we arrived, we walked to the hotel and because we were starving, got some recommendations to eat. The Inn is literally a block from the market (if that) and close to a lot of eateries. We also walked to the Space Needle and back and it wasn't far. There is a Target nearby if you want to buy drinks or snacks. The chocolate chip cookies in the lobby are delicious and the staff is all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Though we had some trepidations about the valet parking and lack of in-building facilities, our fears were allayed after a wonderful week at the Inn at the Market. Quick and friendly fetching of our car accompanied a plethora of places nearby to shop & eat. Comfortable, large room and bed, but in spite of the awesome shower head which provided a wonderful scalp massage, the bathroom was alas too small for the two of us at the same time. We enjoyed the friendly staff and clean room complete with turn down service nightly, but the predominant beige decor throughout was underwhelming, especially the carpet in our room, which needed refreshing. Be aware that city view rooms are subject to the hustle bustle of the Pike Place market complete with car & foot traffic noise well into the evening.

We just stayed there for a weekend away. What a great location right in Pike Street Market. Everything was in walking distance. Service was attentive. Hotel was surprisingly quiet considering the location. Bed was nice, could use better pillows.

Room Tip: Stay on Courtyard facing west. Do not face First Avenue facing east.
