Historical Traveller Reviews of Inn at the Market Hotel

Worth the Money for the Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently stayed at the Inn at The Market - returning after having stayed there in 1999. It is still the best location in seattle - particularly if you are there for shopping! The hotel is nice - the rooms are nicely furnished - but are not "take your breath away" rooms. Views are risky - but who goes to Seattle to sit in their room and watch the world go by??? The beds are tempurpedic and are incredible - you can count on a great night's sleep. As it was back in 1999, the staff are excellent. We had requested a room on the same floor as the terrace - and they met that request pleasantly. Too few guests take advantage of the terrace. For a nice evening go to one of the shops on Pine street, purchase a nice bottle of Washington State wine and some "snacks" and head back to the terrace to watch the ships leave and the sunset. Very relaxing and romantic. The staff will assist with wine glasses, etc. if needed.

t mind moving in

I stayed at the Inn at the Market on May 20th. It was a treat for me. I just wanted to pamper myself a bit. It was to be a me only evening but when I saw the room I called up my boyfriend and suggested we reschedule our 'alone night'. The room, (the parlor suite) was just too awesome to not share with another person. I think it approached my 1bedroom apt. in size.
There were 2 tvs, 1 gigantic bed w/ a tempurpedic mattress, a couch, 2 nice chairs and the most fabulous chaise lounge. The lounge chair was positioned right in front of the huge picture window, and the view was amazing! I grabbed all the feather pillows from the bed and just ensconsed myself on the chair for the longest time, seriously, that view is better than a tv.
I really like the bathroom, it was large and sparkling clean with (except for a 2 person jacuzzi) the nicest tub I've ever been in. It had a comfortable slanted back and filled up really deep. It was a really great tub. I did find a white powder in the bottom of it before I filled it up, however the powder wasn't visible to the naked eye, so I don't really blame housekeeping, I just always check the bath before I fill it up.
I appreciated that there was a lot of room in the refridgerator for things that I might want to put in there, while still having juices and sodas available for purchase (at a much more reasonable price than a lot of other places). They also had tasty nuts and candies for sale in the room that were a decent price and unusual. I don't know about anyone else but I get really tired of chain hotels trying to charge ridiculous prices for average products, it's annoying and I'm really glad this hotel wasn't like that.
I had an excellent meal from room service, (the dinners are from Campagne which is a very nice French restaurant, I'm not sure where the breakfast is from, but I didn't have it). I had had a negative experience with Campagne about 12 years ago so I didn't really want to order from them but I did. I was so glad too! Nearly a month later and that dinner is still haunting me it was sooooo good!!!! I had halibut (which I don't normally even like) with a tomato coulis and frites. Those two weren't paired together on the menu but it's what I wanted. Had the creme brulee trio for dessert which was also quite good.
I enjoyed the balcony, I wasn't there for much of the daytime but it would be a pleasant place to eat lunch. It was a very nice place for me to smoke at night (since there was nobody else around).
This is the hotel I would reserve for a treasured out of town guest. It's exceptionally well located, nice staff, feels homey and that view can't be beat. BTW I didn't find it loud at all and I'm quite sure I slept with the windows open. It is pricey but if you can afford it than that won't bother you.

This is the Best

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently stayed at the Inn at the market and it was outstanding. The service was perfect, the best I have ever encountered. I travel in some of the finest hotels in Europe and this beats them all. They always welcomed me when I came in and made sure I had everything I needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

The rooms were so comfortable I did not want to leave. Our room overlooked Elliott Bay and each morning I would watch the ferry boats from the view of window. This was a treat because the weather was unusually perfect.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Seattle.

Contrary to what some of the other reviews have indicated, this is a wonderful little hotel. We live in the Seattle area and stayed at this hotel last night to try their Tempur-pedic beds (in all rooms). Wow! At least as wonderful as the beds were the staff members. We travel extensively and I told my husband that I think this was the most friendly staff we have ever encountered.

You enter the hotel from a tiny little courtyard surrounded by shops and a couple of restaurants. A bit of tranquility amidst the busy Pike Place Market. The original Starbucks is right around the corner close to a wonderful bakery. Buy your breakfast goodies and return to the Fifth floor sun deck at the hotel. There you can sit, relax, munch on your breakfast while enjoying a full unobstructed view of the harbor. Can't get much better than that. Everything you want to see from Pike Place Market to the waterfront to the major downtown shopping areas and theaters are within walking distance from the hotel.

The rooms are decorated very tastefully and are immaculate. Not one bit of grunge in the bathroom tile! I highly recommend this hotel!

Be careful - water views

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had planned a special get away for a number of couples and worked in advance to enusure the multiple rooms we booked had attractive water views. When we got there, 3/4 of the view was of the blank brick wall of the adjoinging building but they still considered and charged as a "water view". When we requested something with a truely water view we were told thats all they had - take it or leave it. Disappointing service and attention - we would have strongly preferred accurate representations of what to expect even if it meant higher room rates. Buyer Beware!

Subtle elegance in Seattle

from Kris_K_D
The Inn at the Market is the perfect downtown location for Seattle sightseeing. Mere steps from famous Pike Place Market and the stunning waterfront -- not to mention you're within walking distance from the Seattle Art Museum, Benaroya Hall, Pioneer Square, wonderful shopping, and Westlake Center (where you can catch the monorail to the Space Needle). You're close to everything, yet you can find tranquility in your room or the guest deck overlooking Puget Sound.

The staff were nicely pressed and perfectly hospitable, if not downright friendly. Turndown service was prompt and tidy; the concierge raced up to our room to hand-deliver some band-aids for our aching feet (from all the sightseeing); and the valets were courteous and attentive. We did not use the room service from the nearby cafe and French restaurant, as there are so many great restaurants to choose from in the area.

The room was exactly as we requested -- and more. We were given a corner room on the 8th floor (their top floor) with a city view and a small balcony overlooking bustling First Ave. (Okay, so the balcony was tiny -- fitting, at most, four adults -- but none of the other floors had them!) The temperature is guest-controlled and had been set for us at an ideal temperature. The minibar was well-stocked and surprisingly affordable -- as far as hotel minibars go.

At the Inn at the Market we felt as if we had the best of both worlds -- the action of the city, and the comfort of home. We will definitely be staying there again... and soon, I hope!

Wonderful, warm and convenient place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed five nights and the service was superb, the room comfortable and well kept and the staff (from reception to housemaids to repair staff) were courteous, prompt and friendly. I dropped in a TV remote to the front desk because the batteries had died and within moments of returning to my room, the mainenance guy was knocking on the door with a new one. Advice on places to dine/see in our spare time was impeccable. [BTW, the food's sensational in Seattle, try the Cafe Compagne adjacent to hotel for something really special.] Given I'd travelled half way around the world to attend a conference and meetings, my stay in Seattle was made even more special. I shall remember it always.

Hated the Inn

from A TripAdvisor Member
Terrible. Room-service was horrible and staff was most un-welcoming. The decor has been recently updated, but, still lacks the complete look. The managment staff is horrible.

Save your money and stay at Inn at Harbor Steps

from marathonmeredith
I just returned 2 days ago from staying here. It was not a special place to stay. We were not treated as special guests. It was very loud and you constantly heard the sound of trucks and honking. The room was pretty, but no breakfast. No wine and cheese hour. Only coffee in the morning. I would stay at Inn at Harbor Steps where you get so much more for your money.

Loved the Inn

from WAtraveler
My husband and I wanted a romantic get away for one night. The Inn is perfect, they met every detail I imagined. The rooms were very clean, quiet, comfortable and the bath robes a very nice touch. The staff very helpful. Location is great, very good restaurants within walking distance, the market is right there which is always fun to visit any time and free bus service is close by to visit the sites around the city. Beware, parking at the hotel is valet and costs $25.00 for the night. We mentioned to the front desk person that we were not made away of the cost and was not mentioned on the web page. I had expected to pay anyway, but they removed the charge. Great customer service. They also have a wonderful deck overlooking Puget Sound. I would recommend the Inn for anyone who is planning a long visit or just a romantic get away.

Top Local Tips for Seattle

Factory outlet There's a factory outlet at Tulalip with brands like Coach/Nike/Burberry/Tommy/Banana Republic, etc. Spent one full day there. Try driving! Take I-5 North and exit 202 i think. About 45min drive.

Go to Bainbridge Island Take the ferry- $7 round trip to bainbridge island. It's a lovely 35 minute ride to a charming and beautiful island. We rented and went kayaking and loved it!

Food For the absolutly best seafood you have to go to Elliot's Oyster House at Pier 56. If you like oysters, this is the best. Happy hour starts at 3 with oysters starting at 50 cents, and they go up 20 cents every half hour after that. But- you get what you pay for. The oysters that are not served as the happy hour specials are better. Also, a secret spot, small and tucked away, and mostly local, is Emmit Watsons. Head towards the market and follow the street past the Starbucks and you can't miss it. The oysters are good. The gumbo was a wash.
