Intimate common areas, three on-site restaurants and a rooftop deck overlooking the ferry-flocked Pugent Sound are the standout features at this contemporary, 70-room boutique hotel on Seattle’s waterfront. Spanning eight floors, Inn at the Market’s guestrooms proffer contemporary comfort, with Hypnos beds, Sfrerra linens, mini fridges stocked with Northwest treats and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the city or Elliott Bay. For inventive French fare, nab a table at Café Champagne and order up the Coq Au Vin, a red wine-braised chicken with bacon, pearl onions and button mushrooms. The Marché Wine Bar prepares market-fresh dishes such as fried oysters with lemon aioli, and more vibrant palates are served at Chan, which puts a modern twist on traditional Korean cuisine. Before venturing off to buzzing Pike Place Market around the corner, you can enjoy a breakfast of dungeness crab benedict and fresh-squeezed Firenze juice (grapefruit, kiwi and lime) at the first-floor bistro, Bacco. And come evening, head to the rooftop deck to watch the sunset light up the Olympic Mountains and Pugent Sound.
In the Area
A day in Seattle must start with a fresh-brewed cup of Joe at one of the city’s many local coffee roasters. Sample the signature blend at Espresso Vivace Roasteria, one of Seattle’s first artisanal coffee roasters or visit the original Starbucks at the Pike Place Market, where fishmongers toss the day’s catch at Seattle’s famous Fish Market. Dress up in true Seattle fashion with grunge wear like boyfriend sweaters and plaid flannels from Scout, then show it off at a local underground concert at Cafe Racer, the city’s go-to spot for live avant-garde and rock performances and cheap drinks. And sure Seattle is one of the nation’s wettest cities, with an average rainfall of about 37 inches per year, but that just means there’s more verdant nature to explore. Stroll along the Arboretum Waterfront Trail, a boardwalk lined with willow, alder and elderberry trees, and meander the nine-acre Olympic Sculpture Park, which is filled with steel, granite, fiberglass and bronze works by artists such as Richard Serra.
How to Get There
The location is excellent. Right in the heart of the public market. Water views. Spacious rooms and bathrooms. Comfy beds. They have an outdoor patio with plenty of seating. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Overall great experience!
I spent two nights at Inn at the Market while on corporate travel and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. It is in an ideal location with wonderful restaurants just a short walk away, plus you can't get any closer to the Pike's Place market which is a major win. Staff were very friendly, rooms very clean, large bathrooms (which are uncommon) and great complimentary toiletry items (ie. shampoo, conditioner, and body gel/lotion). Comfortable mattress, good temperature controls.
We had a great weekend getaway my wife and I. We loved being in the center of everything. Great service great staff great value!!! If you are looking for a great trip and be in the center of all the action then this is place you want. Great options for dinner and might life. Great city to be in.
