The Inn at the Market is a beautiful boutique hotel next to Pike Place Market. This is definitely not a budget hotel, but worth every penny. I proposed to my now wife in one of their two-floor suites overlooking the Market and Sound. The staff is extremely attentive but not obtrusive; in coordinating the proposal surprise, I worked with the concierge over e-mail for several months to get every detail just right and their execution was perfect. Even right down to having the requisite bridal magazines ready as one last surprise for my fiancee when we checked out the next morning. The beds are tempurpedics, which are the most comfortable things around, made up with high quality linens and plenty of pillows. The decor is classy modern with plenty of marble to go around. The view from our room was absolutely extraordinary. And if you have visitors from out of town, this great location puts them right in the center of all the action.
