    Mixed feelings about this hotel. The location is incredible. The staff (on the phone, at the front desk, valet, room service) were all EXCELLENT. We were upgraded from a city view to a full ocean view suite which was FANTASTIC.  Hard to complain, right?  But the room service was lacking - breakfast was a total joke - horrible, bland, poorly presented, etc) the shower was sub par, they were renovating a room next to ours so we woke to the noise of that. Not great. In some ways it was perfect, in others it was terrible. A true mixed bag. If we hadn't been upgraded to such a nice room, I think we'd be pretty unhappy. Overall, too expensive.

    What a wonderful hotel.  I stayed in Seattle for 6 nights at the Inn at the Market.  The staff couldn't have been more helpful when it came to everything I requested to make my stay more pleasant.  When I registered over the phone they asked me if there was anything I needed before arriving.  Knowing Seattle and its climate in May (very questionable) I asked for a down comforter just in case the weather was wet and cold....it was.  Upon my arrival the comforter was waiting on the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on away from home.  The room was quiet and cozy and the overall feel of the hotel is the same.  The valets were always there to make sure my car was brought to me quickly and they were very helpful with directions.  One of the greatest things about this hotel is where it's situated.  There are wonderful restaurants within walking distance (some just a few feet away) and my walks in the morning took me on adventures all over the Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square and into Belltown.  I cannot say enough about this place.  They did a wonderful job with my laundry and dry-cleaning and after I'd left I noticed an item of clothing I'd left behind was found and sent immediately to me.  This establishment should not be overlooked as one of the nicest, cleanest, classiest establishments in Seattle. If you're looking for a good rest and quiet, quality time away....
    stay here.  I'll never stay anywhere else while in Seattle.

    I love staying at boutique hotels, they offer a much more local-centered atmosphere...compared to the Hiltons and Sheratons which look the same whether you're in Shanghai or Los Angeles.  Location was perfect, right in the Pike Market, which is great when you're on East Coast time, wake up way too early and need something to do.  Service was fantastic, they do an evening bed-turn over and leave a piece of chocolate for a late night snack.  Bedrooms feature Swedish tempur-pedic beds, a pretty large bathroom (at least on the 8th floor), and they offer a selection of WSJ, New York Times, Seattle Times or USA Today.  The lobby also has complimentary fruit, hot apple cider (in the evenings), and coffee/tea/cocoa (during the day).

    We spent our first weekend ever in Seattle at Inn At the Market. What more can I say but that 2 months later, we moved here.
    We were treated to a lovely suite that overlooked the sound--the view was breathtaking.  The ambiance of the place is wonderful... welcoming, yet private; elegant, yet comfortable. Very much a boutique hotel.
    Just a block up from the Market, the location is perfect for a getaway, or treat your parents to a weekend NOT at your house.

    Turn down service, great location, Tempurpedic beds (woo-hoo!), decadent pastry in our room upon arrival w/ anniversary wishes. Classy place, great service, and lots of great food and shopping in easy striking distance. We will definitely be staying here again and recommending it to everyone we can.

    No matter what anyone else says, insist on staying at The Inn at the Market when visiting Seattle. The location is as good as it gets! We stayed for four nights and only needed our car to go to Mt. Rainer and Snoqualmie. We were able to visit many top restaurants and all the sights by short strolls or incredibly easy free public transportation. Nothing beats walking out the front door to the buzz of Pike's Place, getting a coffee and pastry to start your days adventures. The hotel room was very nice, updated and comfortable. The biggest surprise was a gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers awaiting our arrival. Wynona, the lady who took our reservations got them for us because I had mentioned that we were celebrating a "baby moon" and it was an Extra Touch that BLEW US AWAY! She is an extremely valuable asset. I believe the ownership/management reflect the same commitment to service because everyone we encountered was friendly, helpful and gracious. The Valets also deserve credit too! Every encounter was courteous and expedient. Top notch, can't wait to go back.

    Stayed here over the weekend and was completely satisfied with our choice. Typically I don't like being in the heart of a tourist area, but when visiting Seattle, the Inn At the Market is the best of both worlds. Right by Pike Place and lots of downtown shopping, restaurants and bars, but hidden down a little alley so its still quiet and out of the way. The staff was excellent and very helpful, and the hotel was quiet. We so enjoyed the viewing deck off our floor. We took a bottle of wine, baguette, chees and salumi out to watch the sunset on the deck that sits right over the Public Market sign looking out onto the water. Perfect view! The only drawback would be the beds - it's the foam/sleep memory beds. I slept just fine, but it takes some getting used to. Also, the curtains still let light in at night. I'd recommend this property over the many others we saw during our stay.

    I went to Seattle for a surprise birthday trip and stayed at the Inn for two nights.  All in all it was a great experience, however there was one thing that I think could be addressed.  We had a full Ocean View room on the 6th floor.  The room was great, the view was great, however there is a vent from the cafe below (which we went to for a glass of wine and a cheese plate - tasty!), but the vent blows on and off throughout the night.  I was not able to sleep with the sliding doors open as I had hoped.  Aside from that, everything else was great.  The room was a good size, the bathroom was large.  I do think that for the price of the stay, things such as that should be addressed.  It is in an amazing location and I would stay here again.

    Absolutely loved this boutique hotel! The rooms are exceptionally large including the bathrooms which a plus!! You can't beat the location either. Just a few steps away from Pike's Market and a bunch of local eateries. The service was great, everyone was very friendly. In the morning, they had Seattle's Best coffee in the lobby, and freshly baked cookies or fruit in the afternoon. There is also a cool deck which had a beautiful view. They also provide a turn down service and place a couple of Seattle's chocolates on your bedside table. What a nice little treat! I highly recommend this hotel. Will definitely be coming back!!

    We just arrived yesterday, and love this cute and quaint hotel. The front desk service is wonderful and they do all they can to assist with all your needs, i.e. helping you find milk for your 2 year old (b/c they don't have a kitchen inside the hotel, just one they are affiliated with right outside their lobby). The house keeping did a great job at cleaning up our room after our first day, and very nice bedside chocolates. They also welcomed us with a beautiful Seattle fresh fruit basket...an excellent touch! We were originally impressed by all the great reviews on Trip Advisor, that is why we  chose this hotel. I was even more impressed that their General Manager, David Watkins personally took the time to reply to people on Trip Advisor.  He even ended up handling our reservation for us...very helpful for a busy man.
    It seems like good customer service is hard to find now days, so it is very refreshing to know that it still exists at Inn At The Market!

    A beautiful hotel.  And, literally, a softball toss away from the Pike Marketplace.

    We stayed here in early February when rain and high winds lashed the Pacific Northwest.  But we were warm, cozy, and very comfortable in our, surprisingly, large hotel room.

    It is kind of a pricey hotel, though, as was the hotel's valet parking.

    Cute boutique hotel with a view! Walking distance to fun touristy hot spots and local digs as well. Excellent service (although there was one gentleman who seemed to take like a little too seriously - not even a crack of a smile!), yummy apples, comfy bed (oooo la la ;) ) and great location!

    I have a love/hate relationship with Inn At the Market.

    Love the big rooms with a view.

    Love room service from Campagne.

    Love abandoning my plans to exlpore Seattle in favor of lounging in the down pillowed and comfortered bed watching the ever changing sky and the boats to-ing and fro-ing across  Elliott Bay.

    Hate that they won't guarantee a view room at reservation (but we always got one).

    Hate that Inn At the Market was instrumental in getting me to agree to leave SF and move to Seattle.

    You're cool and all Seattle, but I'm homesick!!

    (I know you're sick of hearing how homesick I am - alls I can say is - you will hear this ad nauseum every winter. Please direct complaints to huzbeau).

    I Love/Hate Seatt... I mean,  Inn At the Market.

    Great hotel, I loved it.

    We came with our two kids, it was a splurge for us to stay in such an upscale place, and we enjoyed the amenities very much.

    Clean, friendly, perfect location.  We did not have a car, so parking was not a problem for us.  Comfy beds.  Very attentive staff.  Quiet rooms.

    Is it a coincidence that my birthday and the Seattle Cheese Festival happen to fall on the same weekend? I don't think so :)

    In order to be the first people in line for cheese we ended up getting a room at Inn At the Market on Friday night. Yes, apparently the 0.8 mile trek down from Capitol Hill was way too far!

    The location of the hotel could not be better - right smack in the middle of the Pike Place Market. If you don't luck out and get a room with a view (sniffle sniffle) you can always head out to the rooftop deck and sit in the lovely teak deck chairs and while away some time sipping your coffee and strategizing your plan of attack on the the Cheese Festival!

    The rooms themselves were nothing much to write home about. Tacky carpeting, Tempure Pedic beds (great if you're into it, I guess), ugly printed drapes, lighting in the bathroom that makes you work just a little harder to put on makeup to cover up those dark circles that you SWEAR you didn't have at home or before this latest birthday, and a gigantic air conditioning unit. Check-out isn't until noon and they'll extend it a bit if you ask nicely and let them know you aren't a morning person.

    All in all it was comfortable but after reading the reviews here I expected something more like the Edgewater and it just wasn't quite at that level, but it was definitely comfortable and it is the perfect strategic location which to launch yourself into the Seattle Cheese Festival Frenzy!

    We were completely blown away by how amazing this hotel is! We stayed in a corner 2-level suite on our wedding night. My new wife was thrilled with the view...she just wanted to stay up all night and look out the window! We woke up the next morning, ordered delicious room service which arrived promptly, and walked to the market for fresh flowers and fruit. We took advantage of the late check-out time, and lounged on the deck as the view just kept getting better as the sun came out. I even snuck in some sports highlights on the 2 flat screen tvs! We are already hoping to return for our 1-year anniversary!

    Stayed here for our honeymoon.  Fantastic views from the roof-top terrace.  Spacious room with all the amenities.  The curb side valet parking was very helpful and with the location, we did not have to use our car the entire weekend.  Would stay here again!

    Ahhh...what a lovely place to stay!  Hubby and I decided we needed a night away from the kiddo - so we asked the grandparents to stay and off we went to the Inn at the Market (even though we live in Ballard!)  

    We were immediately greeted with a warm welcome and an upgrade to a suite!  It couldn't have been a nicer room and we plan to make it a yearly event.

    Fantastic location!!  Great rooms (greeeat matress and bed linens). Spotless service and boutique hotel charm. Stay on the 8th floor with city view to get your own little balcony. And there is a nice ninth floor patio to enjoy a bottle of local wine after dinner. Perrrrfect place to stay if you are into the market and/or a foodie!

    This used to be my favorite hotel in Seattle, but that was many years ago, just after a remodel and before they'd replaced the cultured, hospitable reception and reservation staff with haughty toy dogs types.  

    Plea to the owners:  
    1.  Please put some $ back into the hotel, the Tempur-Pedic beds really aren't enough to compensate for the worn furnishings.  (I actually prefer McRoskey mattresses.)  
    2.  Replace or retrain your current reservation and reception staff.  I've experienced way too much of their personalities, and too little professionalism over the last couple of years.
    3.  Update/refresh your website.

    Great location.  Great rooms.  And the room service is from Campagne, so you can't go wrong with that.  But I felt the staff was really hit or miss in terms of quality.  Sometimes they were really helpful, and other times they seemed like they didn't care.  It was really odd and I couldn't quite figure it out.

    I guess I would stay here again, but I was a little underwhelmed because of it

    I work for a cruiseline and we recently had a meeting at the Inn at the Market.  Thanks to the attention of Eric, the sales catering manager and Troy, the hotel manager, everything went very smooth.  The meeting room looked fabulous and the food was great.  This boutique hotel is very unique and quite lovely.  And the location is right in Pike place, allowing us to have a fun scavenger hunt through the market during a break in the meeting.  We couldnt have asked for a better 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. When we arrived in the room, the staff had left a little chocolate cake with a nice happy anniversary note. It was a great, unexpected touch.

    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!

    Stayed just one night on a work trip and seriously wished I had more time here. We arrived at about 2pm to host a dinner party/presentation that evening. Unpacking the car, realized we left critical equipment back in Portland which sent us into a total tailspin. The desk staff spent over an hour trying to find us rentals to replace them and were incredibly helpful. Luckily we pulled things together in time. The room was enormous (got upgraded to a suite)-- a two level room and probably the biggest I've ever been in. Clean, gorgeous, quiet, had everything I could need. I was sorry to only spend about 2 hours in it (awake anyway). Plus, the location cannot be beat. When you come here you get an awesome locale, amazing service, and gorgeous rooms-- totally worth it.

    We've stayed here twice for little "Seattle get aways", each only a night at a time. This place does not disappoint. The staff are very friendly and attentive. I suggest going to the market, grabbing a bottle of wine, some bread and cheese and watching the beautiful sunset on their rooftop patio.

    I would stay here every chance i can.  Perfect location, great service and amazing view from the patio.  

    It's a 3.9 star hotel that would be a 5 if it had a built in restaurant, pool and other ammenaties.  But definitely have 5 star service from all the staff and even have a towncar that they will take you to your destination free.

    You walk out and BAM, you are in the scene.  Love the cute tucked away location, walking by Champagne restaurant, watching cooks do their thing.

    A bit pricey, but if you are there for a special occasion, it's worth it.  Free wi-fi and parking (on promo), makes this place a better value overall.

    Inn at the Market was by far the highlight of my first trip to Seattle. A friend relocated to the area last year and on my visit this month we decided to stay in the city for a weekend. We shopped around and the location of The Inn was the first draw. We were met with amazing service and really enjoyed the stay. Our water view room was fantastic regardless of the overcast weekend. For off season the Market area still has plenty to offer. The only reason for  the lack of a fifth star was the bed itself, not so amazing, sort of hard and left me a bit stiff (that could have something to do with the night on the town). Overall we fell in love with The Inn and it will defiantly be our preferred place to stay when we spend a weekend in the city!

    The GOOD:

    --  Awesome location.  This is as close as you can get to Pikes.  I'm gonna guess the lobby is 45 steps away from Pikes.
    --  Great service.  Helpful staff.  
    --  Super comfy beds.  Room size is good to great; depending on what's available.
    --  There is a nice balcony which is a great area to read a book or just relax.

    The BAD:

    --  Price can be steep depending on availability.  Paid anywhere from $189 to $289.
    --  I wish they had a royalty program.  It's a lot of money spent at one hotel so some type of royalty program would be a good perk.

    We stayed here during the holiday season and i must say, Location location location!! It was the perfect spot and close to everything. Plus the staff was great! Actually the ones that made a great impression to me was the valet/bell man staff, they were very helpful and just excellent! I was very impressed on how they handled the guests both slow and busy times! The hotel was clean HOWEVER the reason of the missing star was that I noticed that whenever they clean the room, it wasn't very thorough. When I got back from our touristy activity in the hotel room, i noticed the counter tops wasn't wiped with coffee drips and not restocked condiments. Sure I would have wiped it and asked for it myself but I still expected it. Other than that they were having complimentary gift wrapping which i thought was a nice touch.

    Valet: These guys were very polite and we running around trying to get us the right car and dealing with foot traffic right on the pike market. Very solid job.
    Lobby: nice and cozy, there are large couches and a few lounge chairs. We had 1 hour to kill between activities and just chatted in the lobby. very nice.
    Elevator: There was always 1 waiting for us to go up (not just for us, but for everyone) and they were SO FAST, less than 5 seconds from the 4th floor. I'm serious, you will notice it.
    Rooms: Clean, turn down service was nice, gave us 2 different chocolates each night, the beds are super soft, the bathroom even has toothpaste and toothbrush, haha. We had the parlour suite and my parents had the townhouse 2 story. Both are impressive but the townhouse on the 5th/6th floor had great views of the Pike market sign.
    Front desk: Megan was super sweet and she really took care of us. This place is really focused on the service and they will make sure you have a comfortable stay.

    overall, I really liked it here because the valet was chill with us using the car over and over (apparently they ahve to park independently in another garage), the front desk was nice, the location was awesome, the rooms were clean and well kept, and the decor was nice.

    This is the best place to stay near Pike Place market!

    Location, location, location.  You're literally a stone's throw away from Pike Place market, which includes the very first Starbucks, the "flying fish" guys, and fresh produce and flowers for what seems like forever.

    What we loved most about the Inn: free Seattle's Best coffee & Tazo teas in the lobby, and freshly baked cookies too, Tempurpedic beds, spacious rooms, awesome staff. Everyone was very nice and very helpful.  Which brings me to the next point.

    On our last day, my friend's credit card was charged with some bogus charges, when we had already paid for the entire package vacation (through Alaska Airlines) weeks before, and it had already been charged to her credit count.  Needless to say, she was flustered and stressed when we woke up before checkout.  The two of us went down to the lobby and spoke with Winona, who was SO nice and completely accomodating.  She immediately told my friend that the charges would definitely be removed, and that the statement we found outside of our door was not accurate in the least.  Lastly, she offered us complimentary breakfast on the Inn for the inconvenience, which we did take her up on.  It was a very nice gesture.  Everyone makes mistakes, but the way the staff at the Inn handled it made it all the more a positive experience.  We are huge fans of this Inn, after all is said and done.  The staff, the location, and the amenities here are all very charming and created a trip that we'll never forget.

    Nothing but love for Inn at the Market!

    The Inn at the Market is a very nice hotel. From the reviews I guess I was expecting brilliance, but overall still I didn't get anything less than a 4 star experience. The front desk people were hit or miss, sometimes very welcoming and happy to be there, some tired and not helpful (a restaurant a block away is very different than a restaurant half a mile away when you're on foot and have been all day). The bell staff was stellar, even introduced themselves to me and asked how my stay was when they were waiting for other guests to complete check out.

    Yummy cookies at check in, and a bottle of wine if you check in on foursquare (these guys are great with social media) was a major plus!

    The rooms are very cute and modern with FREE wifi access. I saw someone mention a robe in the reviews, but there was not a robe available in my room. The first day the shower didn't get as warm as I wanted, but the water was good the other days, so maybe that was just me. Give it some time to warm up, I guess?

    I didn't realize that the windows open til I was packing to go! The hotel was quiet despite its bustling location, but the curtains let in a little light at night. This was a problem when the sun goes down after 10pm and comes up before 5am and jet lag is involved. The tempurpedic bed was super comfortable, so it was hard to be pissed about the light.

    My room was cleaned nicely every morning, but I didn't get evening turn down service on my last night (therefore no Seattle chocolates on my pillow).

    I didn't get to take advantage of the rooftop deck as much as I wanted, but it's absolutely gorgeous, the view is stunning! Spend as much time as humanly possible up there because it's lovely.

    Despite little annoyances, I would absolutely stay here when I bring my husband to Seattle next time and would recommend it to my friends as well.

    The best location in Seattle and a great hotel.
    I did a lot of research before booking for our Seattle stay and I feel vindicated that I picked The Inn.
    Warmly welcomed, valet parking, big room with nice view and right in the heart of the Pike Place Market. Our room was ample for my wife, son and I.
    Each morning we were able to get up and hit one of the bakeries in the market for a pastry and of course, coffee was abound at every corner.
    Book this place, its worth it.

    I'm from Bainbridge Island (just across from Seattle) went to UW, and my family all still lives here...so I've never had the opportunity to stay at the famous Inn until I recently came into town for my 20 year HS reunion. I figured "Why not treat myself?"

    Well worth the wait and I'll be back.

    The experience begins the moment you turn into the quiet courtyard off of Pine St. The hum and din of the wonderfully busy Pike Place Market lessens instantly, you hear the bubble of the fountain, and you feel much more like you are in Europe than Seattle.

    The lobby has a low ceiling and feels distinctly "Northwest." Staff was friendly and efficient. Best of all, they seemed to know Seattle well and were quick with a few recommendations on places to eat and directions. (Hey, W Hotel, re-read that last sentence. Twice.)

    My room faced the city and I thought noise might be a problem. Fortunately, it isn't and I slept well and enjoyed my time in the room. However, you should NOT be spending much time in the room. You should be spending it on...

    The 5th Floor Rooftop Deck. Wow. What a treat. Bring food and a bottle of wine and soak up one of the best views of Seattle you'll find. Elliot Bay, the boat traffic of the docks, Pike Place Market, the Seattle skyline. Lots of plants and chairs to relax in.

    Overall, the place is a real treat and didn't kill my wallet. $175 for a king for one night as a walk-up.

    Do make it your stay when you visit my hometown, ok?

    Great spot!  Great hotel!  Great service!  I would go to Seattle just for this (in fact, we live in Seattle, and we still love staying here.)  It's awesome.

    I love you. Thank you for always being courteous and awesome. I'm sorry this review is couple months late. This is a great middle of the action place to be in the trendy Pike's Place area. I had taken a trip with my wife and infant daughter. While my wife was on a business trip bringing home the bacon. I took the baby all around the area surrounding the Hotel. it's convenient and hotel staff was always helpful all hours of the day/night. Baby had a little accident on the bed 10PM at night. Housekeeping came right over with a whole new set of fresh sheets, pillowcases, duvet and blankets.

    And thanks to the Valet's suggestions. They showed me shortcuts to get in and out of Pike's and great dining recommendations. Niceeeee.

    Didn't stay here but friends did.  The rooms are really beautiful but typically on the small side.  Yes it is close to everything downtown.  I especially wanted to note the Wine Bar and the french restaurant.  I don't know if they are connected to the Hotel or not, but they are both exquisite.  Try them both.  Valet parking is convenient for sure.

    A really incredible boutique hotel located just steps from Pike Place Market.  If you can stay here, you really should do so.  They also added some nice personal touches, and everyone here was just so nice.  

    I would recommend, if possible, to reserve a "package".  They add in extras depending on the package, and it also includes valet parking which is typically $40 a day, so you're saving money and getting additional freebies along the way (in my case, bottle of wine and $100 gift certificate to a restaurant).

    I don't really have anything more to add to the already great reviews for this place.  I have always thought that the mark of an accomplished talent was to make it look easy.  These folks make it look like nothing is any trouble.  You cannot do better than that.

    One point I have not seen reviewed is the internet.  We have been traveling across the western US for several weeks now.  This is hands down the best internet service we have encountered with the fastest speeds, least service drops, and no drama about getting the connection to work.

    Cute hotel, great location, one can walk to very good restaurants, etc. The best thing about this place are the folks who work here: friendly, helpful and they go the extra distance on requests. Seattle's a great town and there are good hotels here. This is a place to return to again and again because of the staff. Thank you Noele and other desk folks! You're professional in the best sense of the word.

    We stayed here the night we got married and it was delightful. Cheerful and very accommodating staff. Gorgeous, spacious deluxe water view room with superb views of the Market and beyond. Quiet and peaceful too considering you are right in the heart of the Seattle action. The location is simply the best. We enjoyed an amazing breakfast from room service (from adjacent restaurant) that was delivered promptly, and was hot and delicious. I wish we could have stayed a few more nights. Will definitely return someday.
    Thanks for making our mini honeymoon so dreamy!

    My family has an annual "Downtown Seattle" trip every August for one night and we try a different hotel each time (10+ and counting!).

    ...but, it looks like we may stop the hotel experimentation now!

    This hotel is fantastic. I recommend that people that are strictly corporate hotels (nothing wrong with that) should step outside of the box when trying to enjoy downtown Seattle and book at this hotel. This charming, 75 room boutique hotel was such a great experience - my parents (in their mid-50's), my brother (18) and myself (25) all equally enjoyed the hotel.

    The lobby was a decent size, chic and simple. The front desk agent was professional and friendly. If you are into foursquare, make sure you check in and let the front desk know because they give you a Pike Place bottle of Merlot!

    We booked 2 rooms, one with 2 beds and the other with a king. Both rooms were extremely clean, spacious and well decorated. As far as rates, we paid about $260 before tax per room in the middle of August. Upon returning from a shopping session, the curtains were closed and had Seattle Chocolates on our bedside table. Such a nice touch!

    The 2 most outstanding features of this hotel were the location and the deck on the 5th floor.

    The hotel location is about a half minute downhill walk to the Pike Place Market. Not only that, but the walk to all the shopping areas are only a few blocks away. Such a convenient area!

    The 5th floor deck is breathtaking at any time of day. We went out there during the day right after check out and the view of the water and the hustle and bustle and bursting colors of the Pike Place Market was to die for. We also went out during sunset, which you can assume how beautiful that was. I also went out there past midnight (open 24 hours to guests) and it was magnificent watching the ferries go by and the beautiful stars. It's a good size deck with patio furniture, plenty of tables and chairs.

    I highly recommend this hotel and I'm almost certain this will be our family hotel every year now. This place will be hard to beat.

    Nice hotel- location is perfect if you want to be by the pike area.. Some issues: the hotel was doing construction on the upper levels that started around 8 am and did not notify guests before booking, if you are on levels 4 or lower you can really hear the cars driving by and room service ends at 3pm?? Weird...   But overall nice hotel  comparing to the Alexis hotel and cedar brook lodge hotel

    We were extremely excited to stay at this hotel. Read really good reviews about it. The room we got was nice, but the view was terrible. There was a giant wall that blocked the view toward the pier. The representative had told us that it's partial water view and that she really liked our choice. Omg terrible! She did not mention about the giant wall. We will never stay at that hotel again. Although the location is fantastic with the market being right next door. Just disappointed because we felt like the representative did not tell us the truth about our room view.  Since we know our way around Seattle now, next time we will stay else where. The other hotels aren't that far away from the market ;)

    First things first, I am not a world traveler by any stretch, but when I do get away from home I want the place I'm staying to be like a second home as far as comfort. The Inn At The Market gets nearly dead on as far as being that.

    Let's start with location. The Inn is just about 50 feet from the Pike Place Market, and within walking distance of the monorail that runs into the Seattle Center. It's surrounded by a number of good places to eat, get coffee (big surprise in Seattle), and a number of shops outside of the highly diverse Market itself. The Inn has a 5th floor terrace that overlooks the water, which we lucked out and got 2 great sunset views from.

    The service at the hotel was very good. The staff were all friendly and helpful. One thing to be aware of is the hotel will only call a town car for a ride to the airport, not the cabs which are cheaper. First time I've run into that, but not a huge deal as there are plenty of cabs in town and I can use a phone myself.

    The room itself was bigger than I expected from some of the reviews here. It wasn't a mansion, but certainly large enough for my wife and I and with a roomy bath besides. The city view was fine, and being on the 8th floor negated any street noise so I can't complain about that. My one complaint, and it actually was quite annoying, is that the hotel TV did not allow us to select the HDMI. Now some will no doubt wonder why we'd care about watching TV on vacation, but after an early day packed with a lot of walking, it's nice to unwind for a few hours and this is the first hotel that did not allow me to run Netflix over my iPad on the TV. A letdown, and a completely necessary one. One thing that I must mention is the bed was extremely comfortable, which was a huge change from hotels we've stayed in the past. The room has a mini fridge with room for small leftovers, and a small safe. Free wifi is provided in the rooms, but as it is unsecured we chose not to utilize it.

    Overall, there's very little to complain about and I think that when we come back we will no doubt stay here again. It's not a cheap stay, but the location and comfort were worth it.

    Spent the weekend at Inn at the Market.  It's a very clean hotel and the staff is superior but the room is not close to being even a little luxurious like most 4 star hotels.  I don't think I'd stay here again for 270 a night.  I would have paid 60 dollars more a night to stay at the Four Seasons down the street.  

    Also, the bed was uncomfortable for me.  I did not get a good night's sleep although my boyfriend did so maybe it's just preference.  You can't beat the location which is why we picked Inn at the Market.  It's right in the Public Market which is excellent.

    Overall it's an ok hotel.

    The staff was great in whatever we needed.  If you place a wake up call at, say, 7:00am, you get a call at 7:00am on the dot!  It's right in the middle of everything you could want to do in Seattle, either by walking or by public transit or even by cab.

    We will definitely be back!

    A few things I forgot to mention after my first stay:
    1. The chocolates (Seattle Chocolates) they leave in the room during turn-down service are amazingly yummy.  If you ask nicely, they will give you an extra one.
    2. The 5th floor deck has a great view of the Market and Sound, especially nice on a clear day.  

    Again, I had a wonderful stay here and look forward to coming back.

    Really nice location. Stayed there two different nights on a recent trip. Had bathroom that was designed for handicapped. Wonderful that they have this available, but was not great for us.

    The manager Paul did feel bad giving us that room on the second visit and passed along a bottle of wine as a peace offering.

    Roof top terrace had great view of the water.

    Walking distance to a ton of things to do in downtown Seattle.

    We were lucky to have booked a great room at the Inn last month while we were in the Seattle area. It was our first stay there and we were given an upgrade to a room with a beautiful view of the bay. The staff was awesome and the suite was excellent. My wife inadvertently forgot a coat and scarf in the room when we left. We called from the airport and the rep at the desk assured us it would be packed and sent home to us ASAP. We received it a couple of days later with a thank you card included.
    Customer service at it's best!

    This is the only hotel I've stayed in while in Seattle and think it may be hard to beat. Upon checking in, it was pouring rain (go figure). The fireplace in the lobby was so welcoming and a great place to warm up. The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. The roof deck had probably the best view outside of the space needle and the business center was generous.
    I'm bummed that they're sold out the next weekend I'm in town but will continue to make it my first choice in the future.

    The hotel was fine. We come to Seattle often, but our preferred hotel, four seasons, was booked. We stayed here for two nights at the recommendation of one of our vendors. The hotel was nice enough - street rooms and in room air/heat unit made it difficult to sleep, but overall we were comfortable. I would have considered staying here again if it weren't for the fact that on day two, two items that I use in a daily face ritual were taken from the room. Total cost of those two items was $220 dollars.  To some this may seem inconsequential, but regardless of the items my out of pocket cost is the same. When I reported this to management, I was first addressed with skepticism from the female manager and then by the general manager (to a lesser extent).  The front desk clerk must have known that I was the one who had called the previous night to report the theft as she was smug and asked me to wait while she got the manager, but instead helped the customer behind me instead of immediately letting the manager know I was waiting. More time was spent on questioning my sincerity than dealing with this violation. Yes, I checked my bags (twice) and was absolutely sure they were gone because I had used them 3 times in the last day and a half!!!  Also, I am fully aware that theft is punishable by law!  I would never press charges for this amount of money, but I would expect the hotel to handle problems of theft and to assume their customers aren't liars. I don't need the GM to tell me over and over the severity of my complaint - as if to accuse me of lying. I am extremely insulted. I travel frequently and nothing like this has ever happened. I am still in disbelief.  In the end, it is not the cost of the items or even that some random employee took these items from the room - it is how it was handled by management and how I was treated. There is absolutely no reason to make customers feel like they are lying or insincere. Terrible experience. My advice to management is to ensure that they do their due diligence because this type of thing is rarely a one time deal.

    This is an update to my previous review. I had communicated my issues regarding their triple door package on their hotel online comment area.  I immediately got an email stating how sorry they were to hear about the mixup and told me they would resolve my issue as soon as possible. They comped my triple door tickets which seemed extremely reasonable and appropriate for the situation.  I just might try the whole package again as she also informed me that they have fixed the process so folks will know about the reserved seating in the future.

    I appreciate their good customer service and their rectifying the situation.

    Inn at the Market is just that.  You could set a bowling ball on the sidewalk out front and it would roll down the hill right into the front entrance to the Pike Market.  It's a great location, though there is no parking, so you have to use the valet.

    We entered into the lobby through a pretty courtyard.  The lobby is modern but a tad uncomfortable because the furniture is made to look good, with  function being a secondary concern, and somewhat stiff.  The fireplace was for looks only and produced no heat that I could feel which was too bad because it was cold and rainy.

    Our room was the standard hotel room layout with a tiny entry vestibule, and the bathroom off of it, and a room with a bed.  The bathroom was very large and nice.  The bed was very comfortable, but only one night table was provided.  There was a TV with layers and layers of menus but I couldn't find any content that wasn't pay-per-view  There were horribly overpriced wines, beers and snacks as well.

    At night, the pretty little courtyard was transformed into a electro-mechanical echo chamber.  Each room had a wall mounted air-conditioner and all night you heard them ramping up and down.  There was buzzing from something unidentifiable , and little hard plastic luggage wheels thumping the seams in the courtyard surface below.

    I stayed at a hotel once where a guy's wife left him and went to another guy's room.  Well the guy didn't know which room she was in, so at two in the morning he pulled the fire alarm in order to empty the place out.  That hotel ranks noisest, and The Inn by the Market is second.   The hotel was generally nice but nothing to write home about.

    The two of us stayed at the Inn at the Market for 3 nights in October celebrating a birthday.  I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Seattle, especially if it's your first visit because the location is amazing.

    Onsite cafe, Bacco, was awesome:  Dungeness crab benedict and fresh squeezed juices!  They also do the room service, so we stayed in bed the next day and the crab benedict came to us!

    Onsite Korean restaurant, Chan, is also amazing.  See my review for details

    Across the courtyard is the amazing French restaurant Marche that made a mean cocktail and delicious desserts.

    I mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday when I booked and there were mini cupcakes from Marche waiting for us in the room when we arrived. Yum!

    Free coffee and tea in the lobby every morning

    Large bathrooms (although not so modern)

    Large room (although, again, not so modern)

    The terrace has a great view of the Market sign and the water.  Lots of chairs to read a paper and enjoy your free coffee!

    The staff happily lent us an extra umbrella to walk to dinner on a rainy evening.

    We walked everywhere!  The market is huge and vibrant and literally right outside the front door.  We are big walkers so we walked all around a 20 block radius of the city and checked out tons of shopping, eating and drinking.

    Parking is via valet only.  Valet was quick and friendly but will cost you $30 +tax per night.  Ouch.  

    Our room was a city view which wasn't TOO noisy, but obviously a water view would be preferable if we had wanted to shell out the extra cash.  If you're a light sleeper or early to bed it may be worth it for you.  We found the lack of privacy of being on a lower floor facing the busy street the biggest negative.

    We drove in right around 5 o'clock and the traffic was horrifying in the Market area.  It was also super annoying dodging pedestrians on the one way exit.  Beware if you're arriving or checking out during rush hour or the weekends.

    They have a nicely stocked honor mini bar, but I never go for that overpriced stuff.  I was charged for a $4 bag of nuts or something that I didn't take.  But with a bill of almost $700 and a plane to catch I didn't bother to argue it.  I'm sure they would have taken it off.  Make sure to check your quick check out bill that the staff slides under your door the morning of your departure.

    We would totally stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking to explore the city.

    Don't be fooled into thinking you're just paying for location; Inn at the Market delivers at every level.

    Of course, I might be able to say that because when we arrived, we were told we'd been upgraded to a partial water view. My in-laws, who'd booked later than us and were also staying longer (so there was probably less flexibility with their room assignment), had the same city room they'd booked and found the street noise to be so distracting that they considered cancelling their second stay at the Inn booked for after our cruise. (Instead, they talked to management who gladly arranged for them to stay on a higher floor for their return.)

    Because this is a concern, and maybe because I'm a little suspicious of how the vending machines aren't advertised in the room's hotel info (they're in the garage, meaning I never found them at 4 a.m. as I prowled each floor before eventually settling for a mostly cold can of $2.50 Sprite from the minibar), I'm knocking off one star, but honestly, I can't imagine a better place to stay if you're in town for a short visit.

    Our corner room on the third floor overlooked the main drag of Pike Place Market and one of its side streets. The windows opened, the two chairs were plush and comfy with a convenient table, the desk was spacious enough for all our electronics and my messy Smashbooking, the TV swung out to be angled however we pleased, and the minibar area as you enter has plenty of space for dismantling a carry-on as you search for some tiny item somewhere in its depths that intends to remain elusive until every item in the luggage has been pulled out.

    The bathroom was long in design with the usual little amenities, and the bed - oh, the bed! So comfy with plenty of pillow action.

    My in-laws found their room to be surprisingly small, and I could see how visitors might get that impression. If our room was the standard, then no, visually it doesn't seem as spacious. However, at no point were we cramped or edging around the furniture or each other, and keep in mind that a) I left our big suitcase open on the unpacking thingy (what are those called?) for the entire stay, b) we're big people, and c) we'd been guests at The Nines in Portland the night before, where our room could've hosted a party so large that you could invite two quarreling friends and not worry about them getting in each others' way, and yet it didn't spoil us for our stay here.

    Lest you think the in-laws are surly and unable to be pleased, they did give high marks to the Asian restaurant on site as well as the attached cafe. (We went to the cafe for breakfast and, yes, it was tasty - all the usual items with some nice twists, like pesto in the eggs and fresh juice blends. Sit outside if you don't want to be cramped, though.)

    The staff at the Inn never failed to be helpful, whether it was pointing out sights on a map (unrequested but appreciated) or arranging a van for us to go to the pier the next day.

    I'd also like to give them an approving nod for setting out cocoa packets along with the coffee and tea in the lobby. I know it's Seattle and I probably won't be allowed back for saying this, but (whisper) I don't like coffee. (Looks around nervously.) I guess I drank enough cocoa in front of the fire to not begrudge the Sprite.

    And, you know, I can only write about my own experience so... yep... let's reinstate that fifth star. We had a great time, and I'd love to have an excuse to stay at Inn at the Market again. We considered many well-regarded hotels nearby that were less expensive and had their own appeal (the Klimpton hotels and their loaner goldfish!), but when I thought about the value of the location, and then I thought about all of the other trip expenses, it seemed foolish not to "do it right" and pay a few Hamiltons more to stay at the Inn. Being able to step in and out of Pike Place Market in a matter of seconds will spoil you for life. And, when I stood alone in the quiet of sunrise on the observation deck, sipping my hot chocolate and watching our ship glide into port, I knew I'd made the right choice.

    Class act all the way. The valet was so polite and helpful as was the front desk staff. We were offered maps, umbrellas, directions, suggestions and they just made us feel so welcome. The roof top deck is amazing. The rooms are lovely and have everything you need and then some. Housekeeping was very helpful, the wet bar was well stocked too. The hotel noise was nothing, but we were on the street so it was noisy. We didn't mind though because we also could see 1/2 a block down to Pike Place, the Great Wheel and the bay. It's so close to all the quintessential seattle spots. The Steelhead is across the street. The food is phenomenal there and very affordable. This is pretty much the perfect place to stay. Just pay the valet and walk everywhere!

    Okay Listen.  I would probably do 3.5 stars because there were a few frustrating instances...but overall when it comes to things that count (location, comfort and friendliness of the staff) Inn at the Market makes the grade, so I rounded up.  

    So let's talk about those things that count...

    As far as location, you can't beat it.  I posted a photo of the view from my window nook (window nook!  Love a window nook...big time...another reason to round up!!) of Pike Place Market.  I couldn't have been more than 20 yards away from the entrance.  There are plenty of restaurants and tourist staples around to keep anyone busy.  I had dinner at a great little sushi spot across the street (Japanese Gourmet) and and there were plenty of other options like Vietnamese, Indian, American, and French nearby.  In fact, within the courtyard of the Inn you have Marche Wine Bistro and Chan - two highly rated (on Yelp) restaurants.  Talk about convenient.

    On to comfort...the bathrooms are enormous and have a stand alone shower and separate tub (with a shower too - hey, knock out two showers at once without having to share the water stream).  The room itself is even larger with a nice little window nook, as noted.  It was the perfect spot for me to finish up some work under the red glow of the Public Market sign before heading to dinner.  The bed is one of the more comfortable I've slept on...great pillows. There is also a mini fridge which has enough extra room around the beers (Pike Place Brewery beers) and sodas to store your own food as well.  I travel quite a bit and like to stop at Whole Foods for some fresh fruit to eat in the morning, so if a hotel has a fridge that's a huge bonus.

    The staff was great.  Friendly and gracious.  You could tell they like what they do and appreciate their guests.  The valet attendants were always quick to retrieve my car and remembered my name every time.

    This all sounds great, right?  Right.  However there were a few grievances I must note.

    Either my room was haunted or my TV was broken - specifically the volume.  Let me set the scene.  I turn on the TV find a channel I like and head to the bathroom to blow dry my hair.  Midway through my blow dry I was interrupted by the thunderous roar of my television.  I ran to main room where my TV was blasting a commercial at an ear piercing volume of 100 out of 100.  I turned it down to an acceptable 30 and returned to the bathroom, where I stood a moment in complete silence.  And within seconds the TV began to increase in volume again.  I walked out to find my TV slowly clicking up to 100 again!  I reported the problem to the front desk and was told they would fix the issue while I was at dinner.  Well, long story short my TV never worked during my trip and I was never updated on the status.  I'm not entirely sure anyone ever checked it to begin with.  I was also not offered another room - which would have been annoying anyway seeing as I had already unpacked everything.  Needless to say, it was a productive evening of work since I had no terrible, mind-numbing reality television to watch.

    Now onto blow drying my hair - for a boutique hotel, I expected better hair dryers.  They have the type that is mounted to the wall - tiny with hardly any settings and the strength of blown kiss.  Travelling with a blow dryer is simply not an option for me, so I try to stay at hotels that have one that at least has both heat and strength settings.  Eh, I'm a girl...what can I say.  My advice to the Inn would be upgrade your blow dryers...seriously.  I can't be the only one that audibly groans in gut wrenching disappointment at the wall mounted dryer (gross exaggeration).

    But in the end, the good far outweighed the bad.  And the bad would never deter me from staying there again.  I'll just remember to pack my own hairdryer and download some movies on my IPad in preparation of another television emergency.

    Awesome views and fantastic location in the heart of Downtown Seattle-- for a price.

    This hotel couldn't really have a more perfect location if you're visiting Seattle: located at 1st and Pine across the street from Pike Place Market, it's right in the middle of downtown with views of city from one side of building and the water on the other.  There's also a courtyard area where all guests (including those staying in the cheaper city-side rooms) can enjoy viewing Seattle's shimmering inland sea.

    The rooms themselves are clean, comfortable, and well equipped with all the modern conveniences you'd expect at a nice downtown hotel.  Parking is by valet only.  

    All of the staff members I met here were courteous and professional.  The only negative thing I have to say about this place is the high cost of renting a room here-- but of course that's to be expected with any *upscale* downtown hotel.

    I try and stay here with my band every time we come through the area to perform. It's a little more money, but it's well worth it! Incredible service! You're treated like royalty here. Nothing is too much to request, they are used to it.

    Great restaurants all around you in every direction, not to mention the Pike Place Market is a hop, skip and a jump away. The roof top deck is an added bonus too, what a gorgeous view and nice place to sit and enjoy the sites, sounds and clean air.

    Best staff ever! You pull up... you're greeted, car is valet parked, bags taken to your room. Sounds easy? These guys are just soooooo good at it!!!

    Trust me... treat yourself, it's a great hotel!

    My daughter and I planned a "staycation" as a celebration of her getting accepted into the Nursing Program @ SPU.  I had walked past this Inn many times but had never been inside.  Upon arrival, we were told we had a complimentary "upgrade" from a regular city view room to a Jr Suite. Huh?  I knew my boss had called the evening before and gave them his CC info and said anything we wanted was on him.  When we arrived in our room, it was the 7th floor with windows facing the city and Pike Place/Great Wheel.  AWESOME!  It had an upstairs & downstairs, two lounging areas, two TV's...all for us two.  I called the front desk and said I really didn't need this much space and I would hate for my boss to have paid out THAT much $$ and was SHOCKED to learn, it was the Hotel's gift to us, not my bosses. Awwww!!!

    The room and the views were so amazing, we didn't want to do some of our planned activities.  We enjoyed Pike Place and always buy yummy pate and cheeses at DeLaurenti Food & Wine.  We were shuttled by staff in a cool Range Rover to the Pacific Place AMC for an evening movie (we had planned on walking but what the heck!) and our driver gave us his card if we wanted to be picked up.  We opted to walk back to enjoy the crazy streetlife.  Upon the return to our room, there was a bottle of wine chilling, a plate of treats and cards for us both.  One for my daughter congradulating her.....very nice touch.  We had breakfast delivered in the morning, coffee on the viewing deck, got to watch the vendors set up for their day and great people watching.  The staff was courtious, thoughful and kind.  I ran into my breafast server a door down while shopping and said I was hurrying to return for a check out.  He offered I could keep my car in the valet for as long as we wanted to stay after check out, which I was pleasantly surprised.  Overall, not only did my daughter and I enjoy our time together but the staff at the Inn at the Market made it more special than we could have imagined.

    Cannot beat the convenience of the location, right at Pike Place Market! Fantastic views - of either the water or the city. Rooms are terrific. Overall, very pleasing understated design throughout. Always friendly, super helpful staff. Great restaurants right downstairs and in all directions within short walking distance. Love the mulled cider in the lobby in the colder months. Touches like that make this place special.

    On one (of our many) visits, a blizzard closed the airport and we had to stay in town a couple extra nights. It was the end of our honeymoon and we'd spent too much already. They happily put us up in a beautiful upper floor suite, for a fraction of the rate.

    After trying a number of hotels and inns, some of which were good, we settled on Inn At the Market as our favorite and only place in Seattle. We usually prefer historic B&Bs or old hotels with lots of architectural character when traveling, but this is our one exception.

    Sublime serenity in the midst of the funky Pike Place Market neighborhood!
    OUTSTANDING & SUPERB SERVICE -from the valet gentlemen to the front desk ladies to the housecleaning staff to the GM.  The ULTIMATE  in customer service & satisfaction!

       I was looking for a  romantique weekend escape to celebrate our anniversary, have some fun, do a little shopping  & sightseeing all crammed into 2 days & 2 nights!  Intrigued, I contacted this small boutique hotel & explained my situation. Our son's  in-laws always stay here whenever they come to watch the Seahawks & the Mariners.... So the Inn At The Market (IATM) came highly recommended. I also double-checked the reviews on Yelp & Trip Advisor - again highly recommended.

        As the larger water-view rooms were not available,  the very friendly front  desk reserved us a "street-view" room, with a partial water view.  When I mentioned that a bag of fabulous lavender products from MARKET LAVENDER would be dropped off a few days before our arrival, they were happy to keep it safe & sound for us.

        A week prior to our arrival, I received an e-mail from  general manager David Watkins, explaining that the IATM  was nearing the completion of an extensive renovation. The e-mail explained that any disruption should be minimal... Mostly just padding in the elevators & carpet coverings in the corridors. All construction workers were certified to be on sight & security would be tightly monitored. Noise levels would be minimal & all work was being done between the hours of 9am to 4 pm.

       YIKES! Being a "Nervous Nelly" of a skeptical nature,  I phoned  David right away & voiced my concerns about realizing my "romantic getaway". He assured me  that he understood my concerns ( & that another patron had written on YELP that although their stay was wonderful -the Inn should have let patrons know about the construction in advance....thus the reason for his e-mail). David told me that he thought I would find any inconvenience to be minimal, but to let him & the staff know of ANY concerns I had or problems that I encountered & he "would make it right".

    You know what??.... David was completely right & our stay was FABULOUS !!
    So the elevators were padded & part of the flooring was covered -no big deal. The few construction workers that we saw were extremely polite & helpful. There was no noise issue at all.

    We stayed in Room 306 &  it was way beyond my expectations! It was FANTASTIC!
    It was actually more of a suite.There was a large console ( with dimmable lighting ) that held the bar fridge, a fully loaded Keurig, china cups & coffee making paraphenalia, etc. A sort of mini " living room"  consisting of a   chaise long, leather chair & artsy glass coffee table graced the western facing  bay window that overlooked  the Pike Place Market, Puget Sound & a flowering cherry tree.

    A super-comfy king bed & duvet provided sound sleep (much appreciated as I am recovering from a back injury). A few steps from the bed  was huge  wonderful window seat with  bolsters & toss pillows that overlooked the street- it was perfect for curling up on to read the daily paper delivered outside the door early each morning... Or just to watch the bustle & action at the Market.

    There was a large desk with a true "executive" office chair-  great when I had a little paperwork to take care of. Two large flat screen tv's were available to view - one from the bed & one from the chaise.

    The bathroom was  done in white tile with top-notch amenities & thoughtful extras like a scale, fully tricked out hair dryer & comfy bathrobes. The shower was roomy & had 2 flow adjustable shower heads ( one hand-held) & tons of hot water.

    One really cool amenity that was awesome: ALL lighting was on dimmer switches! (ie Romantic mood lighting as we snuggled up close & enjoyed a complimentary bottle of champagne & watched the twinkling lights across the water.... Awesome!)

    The staff suggested several great restaurants affiliated with or near by IATM. We  breakfasted  at BACCO - cozy &  overlooking 1st Ave. Be sure to order one of their fresh squeezed juice combos.... So yummy! MARCHE ( in the courtyard) wasn't open yet so we nipped across the street &  ate lunch at the STEELHEAD DINER:  great food ($15  for 3 course special). THE PINK DOOR was especially memorable for the dinner (with wine pairings)  & excellent 3 piece jazz combo in the bar. Don't miss STORYVILLE COFFEE -  more of a lounge  than a coffee shop. All these establishments were busy, served  delicious food & had excellent service.

    We checked out  IATM's famous awesome roof-top view patio on the 5th floor   -but as the weather was quite  rainy, we decided to see  the spectacular Chihuly Gardens & Glass exhibit by the Space Needle. The front desk suggested using the iconic Monorail ( about a 4 block walk) for a more scenic trip & sold us the discounted tickets right there.

    Thanks IATM! We had a lovely time & we'll be back soon!

    First visit in a few years.  Good trip in general, hence 4 stars.  

    - Housekeeping prompt each day, loved turndown service.
    - Left me cupcakes in room for my birthday, nice touch!
    - Friendly valet staff.
    - Comfortable beds.
    - Nice view out window of bay, market.
    - Love the wet bar.
    - Great location.

    I will always love this hotel, but we did have a bumpy start, which is why I dropped it one star.  

    - When my husband called to reserve a waterfront townhouse suite, he was told "none were available," but we could get a parlor suite and those are better (that's pretty subjective).  So he reserved the parlor suite.  Turns out it appears no waterfront townhouse suites were available because the hotel is undergoing an extensive remodel, and they were working on those suites (at least on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors where they had that wing blocked off).  No one told us there would be any construction when he reserved the room.  Noise really wasn't an issue (a bit of drilling/sawing on Thursday around 8 a.m.), but the elevators were pretty dusty and the floors and amenities around the elevators on each floor were covered in paper.  Not exactly the mood one is looking for when paying $400 a night.  I guess it would have just been nice to know.

    - Check in is at 4, I get that.  A CYA.   But rarely, if ever, has any hotel held to this rule if a room is ready or one is available.  Arrived at 1:30 on Wednesday.  Told by front desk clerk that room wasn't ready, she'd put a rush on it into housekeeping, and to go ahead and walk around/get lunch, they'd call us when ready. Sounded good. Two hours later, I'm tired and want to rest before our dinner reservations.  We go back to hotel (now 3:30).  New front desk clerk says "Oh, I just put a rush on your room again.  It may be ready by 4:00."  WHAT??  Whatever happened to the first rush, especially when so many of your 70 rooms are out of commission anyway due to construction?  Husband had hard time holding his displeasure.  Front desk sensed that.  Went to back room.  Managerial type went to elevator, went up, came back down, and now the room has been "inspected" and is ready for us.  Did not set a good first tone.

    All in all, I am happy to stay here again (not sure about the husband).

    Super charming boutique hotel right at the heart of Pike's place!!  Rooms with spectacular views of Elliott Bay!!  I've stayed a few times now, and this last time in December was GREAT!  Renovated rooms, and all dressed for Christmas, the cozy fireplace was so inviting in the lobby :)
    You can walk EVERYWHERE from this property!  Shopping, restaurants, wine bars, and you're practically staying in Pikes Place!!!!
    Service was excellent as the staff were extremely sincere and warm :)  My kinda place!

    We stayed here for one night and I am so glad we did. We booked a room at a less than glamorous hotel that I wrote a bad review for (check my reviews for more data peeps) and we splurged for a single night at Inn at the Market, with a full view of the water and Pike Place Market.

    From the moment we walked up the path to the front door, to the moment we checked out every last person was cheery, happy and more welcoming than any other hotel I've stayed at.

    The doorman introduced himself, we gave him our names and the remainder of our stay, which was short, we were greeted by our first names. Excellent touch.

    The room was incredible! I mean this place is high end, plush and super chill. Nice and quiet, very luxurious and definitely worth the extra scratch.

    After we checked out and got back home to the daily grind, I received an email from the general manager (it wasn't a survey, a real message from a real person) making sure that we enjoyed our stay and our expectations were met. When I told him of my bad experience a few nights before we made it to his hotel he said "please let me know if you are unable to resolve the issues. I know a lot of managers in town and would be more than happy to reach out and help you if I can." That was classy. I handled the issues on my own and got business taken care of, but the offer was genuine and appreciated.

    We are planning another trip to Seattle in March 2012 and this is the only place we are staying, no matter what. If they are fully booked, too bad. I'm gonna Occupy that bisnitch!!!

    The Inn at the Market is a very nice hotel.  However, there were enough little annoyances that I just can't give it a very high rating.  

    Good: The staff were wonderful, especially the valets.  Very friendly.  The bed was firm and comfortable, just how I like it.

    Bad: Rooms on the street side are a bit noisy.  Late at night it is not too bad, but at 6 or 7am you will probably be woken up by a large truck.  If you are getting up at that time anyway, no big deal, but it was too loud for me.  

    The shower curtain is too thin and constantly blows into the shower, sticking to you like a cold paper towel.  I ended up showering with the curtain open because I couldn't take it anymore.

    The bathroom door will not stay open.  It swings shut on its own, and if you push it over the bath mat then you have to fix the bath mat when you close it later.

    The television is the slowest, most awkward TV I've ever dealt with in a hotel.  The guide didn't work, each channel took more than a few seconds to load, and the volume goes up and down.  So you are watching one channel, change the channel, and BAM, your eardrums are getting fried while you try to turn down the extremely slow volume control.

    The elevator randomly stops on floors you didn't select.  You press L for Lobby and end up on floor 5, or 3.  And if you get off onto that floor, the elevator is gone and you have to wait again.  

    I wouldn't stay here again because rather than feeling relaxed on my vacation, I felt like this hotel raised my blood pressure on a daily basis with its little annoyances.

    I had the pleasure of staying here for one night on a very quick trip to Seattle. Inn at the Market is lovely and the location can't be beat. Really, it's a thirty second walk to Pike Place and it's surrounded by restaurants and shops with views to the bay. The entrance is tucked inside a super charming courtyard surrounded by shops and boutiques. The lobby is cozy, the staff is uber professional and friendly, the rooms spacious and the bathrooms, even bigger! I'd definitely stay here again.

    This hotel is mind blowing! Stayed here for the weekend just to hang out in Seattle and do touristy stuff. The staff was friendly & attentive. Our room had the most amazing view of the Sound, Pikes Place and the white capped mountains. The cafe that provides service to the hotel is outstanding. They even catered towards our gluten-free needs- even assuring us they would try their hardest to avoid cross-contamination. I would love to stay here again!

    I stayed here back in May 2012 for 2 nights with my Dad and knew I had to come back with my husband someday.  

    This most recent trip was to celebrate a wedding anniversary and the Inn did not disappoint.   We were traveling on a bit of a budget so for us it was a splurge to stay here at all when we do have cheaper places we usually stay in Seattle.  I basically booked the lowest price room they had but when we arrived (on a November Monday) we were upgraded to a 2 story suite with a fabulous King size bed and a view of the entire city as well as Pike's Market.  The room was a great surprise and turned into the highlight of a week long trip even though we were only in Seattle for 2 nights.  

    The beds here will seriously be the best bed you have ever slept in.  I am not just saying that because part of our trip was 33 hours on a Amtrak train, even though I am sure that had a tiny bit to do with it.  The rooms all have free wifi, a small kitchenette with a honor bar,  Large flat screen tv's with cable.  The bathrooms are very well appointed and beautiful.  

    There is a large deck on the 5th floor that anyone at the hotel can enjoy.  It has a view of the entire bay with comfortable deck chairs.  If the weather is good, you really could just sit out there all day and watch the ferries go back and forth, with a good book and a cup of coffee (the original Starbucks is a block away, btw).  

    As for location, you can not beat this place.  It is a 3 block walk from Sound Transit which will bring you here from SeaTac for under $3.   Pike's Market is just downstairs.  Seattle Art Museum, the Aquarium and a multitude of tasty food is all within a few blocks.  The Seattle Center (with the Space Needle, etc) is a easy one mile walk).

    The staff was all very friendly, even housekeeping talked to us in the halls.  In the lobby there was coffee available in the morning and hot cider in the afternoon/evening.  

    When I hear someone wants to go to Seattle,this place is always my first hotel to recommend.  It is a little pricey but if you can afford it, go for it.

    Supposedly rated one of the top 100 hotels in the world by ...mumble, mumble... Don't remember where I read that and that's a *very* lofty comparison that's impossible to substantiate of course. What it is though, is one of the most popular hotels in Seattle and one that's very difficult to get a room in. And now I know why.

    Booked a good eight weeks out and was hoping for six days there. All I could get were two, a Monday and Tuesday. Bummer. Water view by chance? "Sorry, those rooms are all taken and we don't have a wait list but because this is a special trip for you and your daughter I'll make a note and see what I can do." Riiiggghhhttt.. Never heard back on that of course. We check in, the front desk smiles and says, "believe we found a room with a pretty good view for you that you requested when you made the reservation. Hope you like it" And how. 4th floor corner room overlooking Pike Market, spectacular views of the bay and mountains in the distance. BAM! Thank you Inn At the Market. Made the trip extra special by paying attention to a customer's simple request.

    Super comfortable beds, turn down service late afternoon while you're out and about, quiet, and a location to die for. What more could you ask? Friendly and prompt valet service, and a staff that's clearly been trained to provide the finest service you expect but rarely receive.

    Would strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Seattle, especially if they wish to stay near the Market.

    I love boutique hotels and the Inn at the Market is a great one.  We had a wonderful room with a view of Puget Sound.   The bed was really comfortable and the room was well-appointed.

    There is an open air deck on the fifth floor with comfy patio furniture and I think we ended up here at least once a day to look at the Sound and relax.  You can see mountains to the north and watch the boat traffic come into the dock, as well as watch the activity at the Pike Street Market all from the deck.

    The staff was friendly and helpful.   The hotel is surrounded by wonderful shops, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs - you name it and you have it close by.  You can valet park your car which is what we did.  The valet service is efficient and helpful.  

    A great feature of the hotel was the speed of the elevator - I can't tell you how many times I've been at a really nice hotel but it takes forever to either get the elevator or for the elevator to go up and down.  The Inn at the Market street has an extremely fast elevator and very short wait times.

    I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to any one visiting the Seattle area.  In fact, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

    I attended a company conference at the Inn at the Market last September. I'm a new nursing mom and asked if the Inn could accommodate a space for me to breastpump a couple times during the day. I was so pleased by their response! The staff provided me with an available hotel room to use in private whenever I needed it. They were very understanding and gracious, which I greatly appreciated. I could not be more grateful for how they handled my accommodation request. It truly was very kind and thoughtful. I will most definitely highly recommend the Inn at the Market to any friends or family visiting Seattle or for future company events downtown.

    A very nice hotel that's right across the street from the fish market within walking distance of everything downtown Seattle has to offer.

    The rooms are spacious and you have a choice of a city view or a water view.  
    The room has everything you'd want, including a Tempurpedic mattress (my back thanks you).

    It's a small hotel (only 72 rooms) which is another plus. No restaurant but just outside there is a courtyard with 2 restaurants who will also provide room service.

    Nice hotel, nice staff, great location. We'll be back.

The rooms were quite comfortable and the bath products were nice quality. You are basically a hop, skip and a jump from the Market and all these delicious food shops and restaurants. Prices are reasonable and it has the great feel of a boutique hotel. Definitely take a visit to the roof for the views and beautiful patio. Only place I would stay if I visited Seattle again! Highly recommended!

    Location - Location - Location! It's a spendy boutique hotel and worth every penny!

    This place is beautiful! The staff are friendly, polite and very helpful. We stayed on the 5th floor over looking the Sound and view deck. The weather was sunny and no wind. The view from the deck above the Pike Place Market is fantastic and to watch the ferries coming and going. To the south you can see the new Ferris Wheel on the waterfront and Mt. Rainer in the distance. To the north you can see the Olympic mountain range.

    We stayed from Friday to Monday. I traveled up from Oregon and my sister from Chicago, IL. We hosted a bridal shower for my daughter and the staff were very accommodating for all of our requests.

    The room was very comfortable and the bathroom is huge. Make a date with your significant other for a special weekend in Seattle. You won't be disappointed.

    Location, location, location.  The best.  Right across the street from the public market and walking distance to public transit.  Robes, slippers, morning coffee, quiet rooms and the best beds in the world made this a great place to stay.

    The Inn at the Market is a wonderful hotel with an even more wonderful location!  On our last night here in Seattle, they upgraded us to a waterfront room with the most amazing view!  The hotel staff are extremely courteous and quick to respond to requests.  We will definitely stay here on our future trips to Seattle!  Staying here during the week is a great deal as the cost is similar to nearby hotels but this location and view can't be beat!  Can't wait to come back!

    Perfect location to visit Seattle!  The inn is right at the Market.  It's a small hotel with only 70-80 rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size and modern in decor. We felt very comfortable in our room. We had a partial water view on the top (8th) floor and enjoyed our view. On the 5th floor they have a deck that overlooks the market, water and the Ferris wheel. With the deck available you don't need to pay extra for a view. They have several chairs and tables for you to sit and relax in.  They also have 3 restaurants that deliver room service. We had Bacco Cafe room service both days and it was delivered in 30min or less. The hotel was very clean and cozy!

    If you're planning a trip to Seattle, you should stay here. It is the BEST location, within walking distance to virtually everything! We were able to do pretty much every touristy thing in Seattle and still had time left over. It was really nice not to spend much time traveling at all. Hotel has a very modern and hip feel to it, which is always nice! If I ever come back to Seattle in my lifetime, I'd stay here again

    What a beautiful surprise!

    We booked this hotel for 4th of July when we got back from a cruise.

    The hotel does not look like much from the outside...however the rooms were wonderful!

    The bed is OH SO COMFY.
    Bathroom is new and nice.
    Free Wifi.
    Right in the heart of downtown...you can literally walk to everything!

    The staff was all extremely nice.  

    I would definitely book here again!

    What a delightful boutique hotel. The location, steps from Pike's Market, simply cannot be beat and I've long lusted to spend a few nights here: I love Seattle, I'm from the PNW, and the Inn At the Market put me right in the middle of the perfect romance.

    The BF and I stayed a couple nights last weekend as we were on our way driving back to SD from spending time with family... nothing could have started our trip back home better than then cuddling up in this gem of a property before leaving town! When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly valet team (Shout out to all the John's! Esp John C!) and the front desk, deliciously manned by Magnus, was flawless. We were early, so we checked bags and skipped across the adorable courtyard to grab a mimosa's at Marche. (See separate review for that!)

    Once our room was ready they gave us a ring and it was perfect timing. It took us less than a minute to leave the market where we were wandering at that point to get up to our fifth floor room. While I'm sure there are more updated properties with perhaps flashier decor downtown, it's a cozy and quality upscale place will a killer location: Well kept, comfortable, and homey. A few notes on the amenities.

    Spacious floor plan, and it was the little things-like turn down service, coffee in the lobby, free internet and the swivel chairs that swung around to face looking out the window-that really made us comfortable. The bed was heavenly, the bathroom large and roomy.

    You're surrounded by amazing associated restaurants, like the beloved long standing Cafe Campagne, a favorite of mine and they'll handle reservations for you if you wish.

    Our view looked out over the outdoor terrace and onto the water, just in time for a pink Seattle sunset! We had coffee out there one morning and loved it. If you're looking for the perfect rooftop for a cocktail party or event, this is the one.

    Each day the staff was completely friendly and eager to help, which I so appreciated as I was a little outside my normal and famed OCD organized state (haha) and asked a few favors like getting things out of my valeted car and having the front desk hold a bag for a friend.

    I will be forever disappointed staying in other Seattle hotels from now on...they just won't feel like home compared to the Inn At The Market. Cheers!

    Never underestimate the power of location. I mean, who doesn't want to roll out of bed and get a fresh croissant from La Panier, a hot Russian treat at Piroshky Piroshky, a chai tea latte from Local Color, an ambrosia apple from the produce market, and sit along the water? Or take pictures of the Public market sign at all the different hours of the day?

    The rooms are spacious, the bed very cozy and large. Lemon water and coffee in the lobby, very friendly staff, and the newspaper is delivered to your doorstep. Free wifi, a rooftop/terrace lounge area, iPod docking station, checkout at noon are some of the other fantastic perks.

    The minuses? Not crazy about the water pressure, or lack thereof. The pillows are really soft, like crazy soft, so if you're not into that kind of thing you may need to pack another one or just fold them over four times. Petty stuff, really.

    And although it's on the pricey side, it's really worth the splurge if you're going to utilize being right in Pike Place. For a view of a brick wall, we paid about $300 a night.

    Location, location, location.  True for real estate AND when you're considering where to stay in Seattle.  That is, of course, if you're interested in Pike Place Market and what the rest of the area has to offer...within walking distance.  

    Rooms were very clean, the bed is one of the most comfortable I've slept in, all of the staff I encountered were very helpful and friendly.  The 5th floor deck has some beautiful views.

    You get what you pay for. And this place is worth every penny (lots of pennies).  We were treated like royalty from our early check in to suggestions and assistance. Nice minibar and free coffee available... free GOOD coffee. The place is immaculate and you walk twenty steps to the Public Market. At night, the view of the water is amazing. Parking was $40 a night, putting the cost way up there. There is so much going on and a hundred restaurants within a few blocks. Chan is in same building for Korean fusion, and Bacco for breakfast. Yu will never want to leave. We actually stayed an extra night because it was AWESOME.

    Even with this place under some serious demolition, I really enjoyed my experience at Inn at the Market.  Sincere hospitality from the whole staff.  My room had amazing views of the Sound and the Market.  Just a perfect location.

    My room was large with bay windows.  If I was facing the city it would have been a different experience I think (just in case you don't agree with me).

    After having read Conde Nast's Gold List's 2013 and 2014 editions, I had to sate my curiosity and check this place out. And boy, were they right! You simply cannot beat the location - literally a few steps from Pike Place Market. Want some fresh fruit? Hop on out of bed and just cross the street to the market for all you can possibly want. Want to check out one of the oldest Starbucks locations in the world? Again, literally just a few steps away.

    I was given an early check-in (around 2 or so) and complimentary upgrade (without even asking) to a courtyard view with a gorgeous view of Elliott Sound and Bainbridge Island, thanks to some enormous bay windows). Before I arrived, I had been emailed by the hotel to advise of massive renovations, which were very apparent upon checking in. Plastic sheeting was layered everywhere and one of the elevators was covered in cloth protection. But honestly, I can already tell that all of the dust and noise will be worth it when the work is complete. The showers in the room were GINORMOUS. I honestly wasn't expecting that at all. Amenities were top-notch, as expected.

    The courtyard was very inviting and the boutique stores seemed to have a lot of really cool wares on display (due to a hectic Sakura Con schedule, I was unable to actually check anything out). The fireplace on entrance to the lobby was also very warm and the complimentary hot apple cider offered after a cold night of convention shenanigans was very much appreciated.

    In comparison to another hotel that I stayed at following my one night at the Inn, I just felt that the front desk service could have been a bit more friendly and personable. Yes, they were extremely professional and courteous, but it was not quite the same. If/when I'm back in town for Sakura Con, I hope to be able to stay here again, once everything is completely renovated...

    If you're looking for a fabulous hotel to stay in Seattle, you must go to Inn at the Market.  It is the perfect location to stay while seeing the sights that Seattle has to offer.  The lobby is inviting with a beautiful fireplace, fresh cookies and lemon water for weary travelers.  The rooms are perfectly appointed with VERY comfy beds.  

    Check out the rooftop patio, which has a beautiful view of Puget Sound and Pikes Market.  

    While it is on the pricy side, we will definitely return for a visit.
