The Inn at the Market is a cute hotel in downtown Seattle. When you step out of the hotel you are literally steps away from the Pike Market.

The hotel has about only 80 rooms and definitely has a quaint feel to it. The rooms are small, so if you're looking for something spacious, you're not going to find it here. What you will find is a spotless room with comfortable beds in a great location. The hotel staff is very friendly.

There is a roof top deck with a view of Puget Sound. At night it can get cold, and there are not heaters out there. On our first night in Seattle my partner and I walked over to the Pike Market and bought a couple of freshly cracked crabs, fresh bread and brie, and a bottle of wine. We took our dinner to the roof deck and enjoyed it by candlelight. Great dinner!

The only drawback of the hotel is the cost of valet parking. There is no self parking, so you are forced to pay $25/day.

Overall the Inn at the Market was a great experience.

My husband and I traveled to Seattle for four days to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. Neither one of us had been there before, so we were looking for a fun place to play tourist and explore a new city. The hotel was in a great location, literally half a block from the famous "Public Market" sign at Pike Place Market. The location makes it so easy to walk over to the Market for breakfast in the morning and is really a great home base for all your touring.

Our room was fantastic. We paid for a city view and had a room on the sixth floor, facing Stewart Street. However, because the window bumps out a bit like a bay window, we were easily able to see out onto Elliot Bay. One of the highlights of our trip was sitting in the little bump out window, sipping local wine, watching an amazing sunset. Our room was quite large - we both were surprised at the ample seating area (sofa, coffee table and chair) and the large bathroom. The free wifi was great also.

The hotel has a nice "roof top" deck, which unfortunately it was too cold for us to really use when we were there. I could definitely see having breakfast up there during nicer weather though. The lobby is also nice, and we spent some time reading the paper by a nice fireplace while we were waiting to go to the airport.

If you don't have a car, the towncar service to go to and from the airport was a good deal and made the trip a little extra special.

My only complaint, and it's so minor, was that the front desk staff was not very helpful in suggesting "off the beaten path" things to do. We had covered the whole downtown area pretty well by our last day and wanted to venture into one of the surrounding neighborhoods (Capitol Hill, Queen Anne, etc.) The man at the front desk had no suggestions on where to go and gave us wrong directions to Capitol Hill, which was a bummer way to end our trip.

Overall, a great experience though. We will definitely stay again!

We stayed at the Inn at the Market for the first few nights of our honeymoon. The staff knew that it was our honeymoon and when we got in there was a little fudge cake and the nicest note waiting on us in the room! The flight left us frazzled and it was above and beyond of them to give us a little treat. What a perfect way to start a honeymoon! The location was also great! We tried to save a little money by not getting a water view room and that worked out perfectly because of the guest balcony that we used everyday. The balcony of the hotel looks over the Puget Sound and the market. You can even see Rainier and the Olympic Mountains in the distance. Our favorite part of our trip was cuddling up with a bottle of wine and fresh fruit from the market and watching the sunset. The location was great, the staff was nice and the rooms were clean. You would have to have outrageous expectations to not fall in love with this hotel. I would recommend it to anyone staying in Seattle.

Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor, our expectations were high. After staying for 3 nights, we felt the hotel was definitely overrated. Location is good, view on roof is fantastic (the great weather helped). Rooms are okay (though we requested a room away from the street noise and did not get it). Valet staff went above and beyond. However, we did experience issues with Maid Service and Concierge. Several times the maid knocked once then barged into the room (early in the morning, no less). On two occasions we phoned the Concierge service for restaurant advice, they said they would phone back and never did. In the spirit of a boutique hotel, they did not have evening/late night dining or room service. I would recommend to friends, but with some caveats.

The rooms in this hotel were very nice - large and modern with a comfortable bed (although the bathroom needed a better shower and more counter space). The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was very convenient for fisrt-time visitors (across the street from the Pike St. Market and near many good restaurants and shops). The hotel terrace was GREAT...a wonderful place to sit with a bottle of wine and a book and spend an afternoon relaxing or watching the sun set!!

For people that like the smaller, one-of-a-kind hotels in large cities...this is a very good choice!

This is a wonderful hotel! We have stayed here for the past several summers and always enjoy our stay. Skip the townhouse suite unless you have a large group. If you can, splurge on a deluxe waterview room. If you cannot, book a cityside room and be sure to use the rooftop terrace! Bring a glass of wine and watch the ferries and ships come and go. The location is terrific. The staff is low key and efficient.

After reading many, many reviews on this website, I contacted the manager directly to see if he could assist me in making plans for a short 2 night stay in Seattle for our wedding anniversary. He promptly responded with an offer that I couldn't pass up!
This past weekend my husband and I stayed at the Inn in one of the town house city view suites. The hotel & staff were amazing! We absolutely loved this hotel and will for sure be back in the future! I have already told many friends and family that next time they're in Seattle, this is "the" place to stay!
When we first arrived, there was an anniversary card and a special dessert for two waiting in our room! It was delicious and such a nice gesture! Typically we would go out for a nice anniversary dinner where ever we happen to be. At the Inn, there was a set of dishes for two in our room, so both nights we decided to get takeout and bring it back. Fixed up our plates and headed to the deck on the 5th floor. Amazing view and plenty of space! Even though there were other guests out there, everyone had their own space and it was wonderful!
The room was very spacious and super clean! Two big flat screen tv's... bay windows that look out on two different streets, one with partial market/water view. The location couldn't be more ideal! Steps from Pike Place Market which is always one of our favs when in town for a visit.
Thank you Mr. Watkins & thank you to your staff! We really enjoyed our stay at your hotel and can't wait to come back! This was definitely an anniversary to remember!
