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.
