Inn at the Market
Travel Blogs from Seattle
Departure day was a day of good weather in Chicago. In the spirit of the season I had arranged for a limo to pick us up. I booked a standard car, and expected to be riding in the front seat. However a large SUV showed up for us. Nice break. Cathy and Spencer were leaving on an errand, and I heard Spencer ask, "Why do they have such a big car …
Once again we started the day with a fantastic breakfast and then loaded up the car and headed to Seattle. Today marked the end of the first part of our trip seeing and hiking the great National Parks. With all our hiking gear boxed up we headed to the nearest UPS store to ship the box home - a lot cheaper than putting it all in another suitcase on …
We got an early start today to catch the 6:40 (that's a.m.) train north to Seattle. It was a fairly quiet ride until we got to Portland where the train filled up with Mariner/Cub fans heading to the big game this afternoon.
Arrived in Seattle on time, and didn't even have to wait in line for a cab. Traffic getting here was a little …
Pretty much the end of day two, and so the last day in Seattle. We had bought a city pass, but only really using the tickets for the Space Needle. Our day started off at a 'very french bakery' with pastries and hot chocolate and lattes. Still pretty cold, but not as much as yesterday.
We walked to REI; really one of our highlights and I know …
We arrived yesterday in Seattle. It was actually sunny, which my plane seat neighbor explained it was her fervent praying for her vacation. Thank God. Anyway, the hardest thing trying to get to the hotel was trying to find a bathroom in the airport. The light rail system was amazing simple to use, and we were dropped off at our stop in about 40 …

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at the Market Seattle
With no family in the Great Pacific Northwest, my wife and I enjoy Christmas by giving ourselves a gift of taking off to nearby destinations.
A bit too noisy and congested
Great location if you are a tourist and don't mind the noise and lack of luxury service. If you are a business traveler, do not plan on getting much work done. Far too many tourists in this area.
Best location in Seattle
Perfect location for water views. The upper rooftop deck was worth the expense. There could not be a better location for a first time visitor.
On our first trip to Seattle, my wife and I wanted a cozy, romantic room overlooking the water, and we could not have done better than the Inn and the Market. The genuinely gracious valet makes the perfect first impression as he guides you through the entry courtyard and up to the courteous and helpful desk staff. They immediately offered to upgrade our room at no additional charge, and even offered to let us see two different rooms to choose our view. The room itself was perfectly kept, and very comfortable. The temperpedic beds are among the finest we've ever encountered in an Inn. You should definately spring for a water-side view, well worth it! The fifth floor balcony (common area) is the perfect perch to enjoy the sunset with a bottle of wine bought from the street below. The Inn's location is perfect for those wishing to explore the historic Pike Place Market. The staff was also very forthcoming with impartial recommendations for dining and entertainment. I would definately recommend the Pink Door for Italian lovers and Campagne, which shares the courtyard, for a nightcap, coffee and late dessert, prior to returning to a thoughtful turn-down survice complete with chocolates! Save some energy to "toss your fish" with the most famous fish mongers on the East Coast. As an added bonus, the Space Needle is just a nice afternoon's walk away through the heart of Seattle.
Warm & Classy with the Best Location
The location almost touching Pike Market is outstanding as you are staying in the heart of all the excitement on the waterfront. Cannot say enough about the courtesy and attentiveness of the entire staff. Rooms are delightfully comfortable and even more so with the "Temperpedic" mattress. Deck overlooking the Market and harbor is best way to begin the day with morning coffee. The location is perfect because of all the activity at the Market, the many outstanding restaurants and shopping at the Nordstrom's flagship store, all within walking distance. A classy hotel for a reasonable price.
My wife and I stayed there at the end of Sept. We booked a paritial ocean view room since full ocean views were booked. When we walked into the room we thought that they had made a mistake;" it's a full ocean view!" Apparently since you can see the roof of the building below it's partial. Most upscale hotels would call that "full ocean view". That said; the hotel has a very nice intimate feel about it and at the best location in the heart of Pikes Market. We forgot to take a photo of the outside view of the hotel but, when we got home and my wife was watching "Sleepless in Seattle",to her surprise there it was on the big screen.
Our favorite home away from home
My husband and I stayed that the Inn at the Market on our wedding night and have been going back for our anniversary every year since. This is a beautiful hotel that is classy without being flashy. The reception desk remembers us when we check in, always upgrading us without a charge and even remembered which room we stayed on our wedding night and sent a bottle of champagne up as an anniversary gift! We live in Seattle and know all of the higher end hotels in town. The Inn at the Market is the classiest of the bunch.
Charming, classy, one-of-a-kind
This is a charming boutique hotel just steps from the famous Pike's Market and Elliott Bay. We had a full view, which afforded spectacular view of the Bay. The service was meticulous, staff were cordial and helpful. There's a lovely rooftop deck and a top rated restaurant on premises. If you like staying in a small hotel and the feeling of having a pied a terre in a neighborhood, you will love the Inn at the Market.
great location, expensive, but employees very nice and helpful, accommodations very good, the rooftop was a wonderful place to watch the 4th of July fireworks
Texas size welcome at the "Inn"
If you want to be treated like royalty, have your headquarters on the water and one block from the greatest market you'll find anywhere, have a view from Puget Sound room that will knock your eyes out, then you have to stay at the Inn at the Market.
