The location of this hotel was excellent for exploring the Markets and the waterfront. We had stayed in Seattle before downtown but we found the Inn at the Market was much more central. We could walk to all the big stores, stroll along the waterfront, catch a boat to cruise the harbour all within walking distance of the Hotel. We would go out in the morning to the wonderful French Patisserie and buy our croissants and coffee, bring them back to the hotel and look out over the harbour while having breakfast. We had dinner at Cutters twice and were fortunate one night to get a wonderful deal that was offered, but we only knew about this because we had read it in the daily newspaper that was delivered each morning - so read your paper before going out for the day. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful and for a little charge we were able to valet park our car. The bed was extremely comfortable and I loved the turn down and Seattle chocolate on the pillow. If you have a car a must visit is the Snoqualmie Falls and make sure you drive a little way down the road to the historic railway station. We took our friends up to the roof top garden one afternoon and we had great view overlooking the harbour enjoying a drink and cheese which we bought ourselves sitting in the comfortable chairs. Only fault was the fact that we had to go down a floor for ice but that was minor thing. Would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We paid a little extra for a partial harbour view and it was well worth the extra just for the wonde...

We hadn't stayed at the Inn for a few years and decided to visit again for a short stay - the staff and service have lost none of their charm and flawless care. The decor is warm and fresh, the amenities plentiful and the beds and linens as comfy as ever. Don't think of trying to shave your legs in the shower, though. There's plenty of light in the bathroom itself, but none in the shower, so when you pull the shower curtain closed it turns the tub enclosure into a murky cave more conducive to injury than smooth calves.
Also avoid room 411 if you are a light sleeper. The lights of the surrounding street and businesses come through the curtain even when fully closed and the early activities in the room below is likely to wake you before you might enjoy.

My first time in Seattle and the Inn at the Market. The whole experience was wonderful. There were five family members staying in four rooms. Not one person had a complaint. The staff was helpful and very friendly! The free coffee and tea in the lobby in the morning and cookies with cider in the afternoon were nice perks. The location was great we were steps away from plenty of restaurants, shopping, tours, and within a mile of the Space Needle. Will gladly stay here again. (Two members of our party have stayed here in the past and highly recommended we do so. They made a great recommendation.)

Just finished celebrating a birthday with friends at the Inn at the Market and playing tourist 60 miles from where we live. The location cannot be beat and our room had a great view of Pike Market and the Big Wheel. We cabbed to dinner one night (Staple and Fancy and a separate review) and the other nights, just walked to where we wanted to go. Service was excellent at the hotel and my only negative is that the hotel is due for a facelift. Woodwork is chipped, tiles in the bathroom were scroungy, furniture was starting to show wear and tear, and for what should be a five star hotel, everything is just a little worn around the edges. This is our third stay in 20 years and I would hope there are plans to update as would like to continue to recommend this hotel to our out-of-town guests. Soundproofing in any city hotel is an issue and request a room without a connecting door and on a top floor to get a quieter room.

Dear Guest:
Thank you for continuing to select the Inn at The Market as your hotel of choice. We are beginning our guest room upgrades late February, I am sorry that where not completed for your most recent visit. Last year we updated the guest room hallways and carpeting with the completion of the guest rooms this year. Thank you for writing in to tripadvisor.

We stay here whenever we're in town on business.
We're always well looked after and the location is great for a wander round the market at weekends.

Also, one of the comfiest beds we've slept in!

There's even a great Guinness pub just around the corner for those of us who miss a stout when travelling!

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at the Market for three nights, and we absolutely loved our stay. From the minute we walked in, we were blown away by the exemplary customer service and fantastic location.

Again and again, the hotel went above and beyond to make us happy. For example, within five minutes of checking in, the front desk clerk called and said he had found us a room with a king size bed per our request. My husband asked if the hotel had any electric tea kettles, and a kettle was placed in our room within five minutes. We asked for a dinner recommendation, and the front desk clerk suggested Etta's and made dinner reservations for us on the spot. This was one of our favorite meals of the trip. We left our luggage and shopping bags at the valet desk after checking out, and they took wonderful care of our belongings and helped us hail a cab to the airport in the rain. We accidentally left my husband's passport in the safe, and the hotel tracked me down so we could retrieve it. I could continue typing and typing about the superb customer service we received.

Our room was located on a lower floor facing the street, but we did not have any noise issues. The bed and bedding were extremely comfortable, and I loved the Seattle chocolates placed on our nightstands each night. My only critique would be to update the bathrooms a little. The old school shower curtain was a bit irritating, and a few bathroom tiles were chipped. Minor issues though.

The hotel is perfectly located in Seattle. Pike's Place Market is right outside, and one of the main shopping areas starts only three blocks away. We walked everywhere except the airport, including the Space Needle, Olympic Sculptures Park, and to the ferry terminal for Bainbridge area. If you have limited baggage, I highly suggest taking the train from the airport. It's under $6 for two people, and the last stop is only a few blocks away from the hotel. We shopped a little too much to take the train when we departed, but the train was perfect for our arrival (we had one large suitcase at that point, which was easy to travel with).

I would return to the Inn at the Market in a heartbeat. This was one of my favorite hotel experiences ever. Thanks for a great stay.
