As indicated by its name, the Inn at the Market offers the quintessential Seattle setting, being that it's the only hotel situated right at Pike Place Market. Rooms with water views look out over the iconic market neon sign, the Great Wheel, Puget Sound, and, on the horizon, the Olympic Mountains. Head downstairs to emerge into the heart of the Market, stocked with flowers, produce, fresh seafood, and locally-made arts and crafts. For a hotel in the heart of the action, it’s surprisingly quiet and private inside. The guestrooms are all beautifully appointed with earth-toned decor, custom linens, and Northwest-themed artwork; and they have floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of the winning views.

Bright, lively, historic, and full of music and food and all good things Seattle, Pike Place Market is home to the city’s first Starbucks, a world-famous fish market, and a vibe truly beloved by locals—this isn’t just a market for tourists. For casual dining, try Lowell’s, popular for its excellent crab sandwiches and its bay-facing windows. At the intimate Matt’s in the Market, the menu derives from what the market has on offer. Make reservations, because it’s tiny. At DeLaurenti Specialty Food and Wine, pick up everything you need to stock a rooftop picnic back at the hotel. For visitors who can tear themselves away from the market, it’s an easy walk to the Seattle Art Museum, Pioneer Square, or the Waterfront.
