Best hotel near Pike Place Market

The fantastic Inn at the Market is the only hotel located within Pike Place Market and the best place to stay for easy access to the market (of course), downtown shopping, and the trendy bars and restaurants of Belltown.

Pike Place Market – Where To Stay

  • Pike Place Market is the heart of downtown Seattle. In general, the closer your hotel is to Pike Place the better located you are.
  • There are many trendy clubs, bars, and top-notch restaurants both in the market and in the half-dozen blocks northwest of the market – an area called Belltown. The downtown shopping area (to the east of the market) has fewer good restaurants (more chains).
  • The best shopping is northeast of the market. This is where you’ll find many of the boutique shops and luxury chain stores. It’s a 5-minute walk from Pike Place Market to the downtown shopping district.
  • Pioneer Square is southeast from the market and home to clubs and sports bars. Beyond it is the International District and just beyond that are the two sports stadiums for the Seahawks and Sounders (Lumen Field) and the Mariners (T-Mobile Park). All of this area is walkable from downtown and Pike Place Market.
  • The waterfront looks close to downtown and Pike Place Market but it’s somewhat cut off from the center by a busy road and plenty of steps. It’s not difficult to walk from the waterfront to downtown but it can still feel like a hassle. Much better to stay in downtown proper if that’s where you’ll spend most of your time.
  • The Four Seasons is the best Pike Place Market hotel for families with kids.

  1. Seattle Hotels Near Shopping

    I have a question for you: I will be visiting Seattle this fall, and am interested in doing the bulk of my holiday shopping while I’m there. Can you recommend a good mid-range hotel that’s close to downtown shopping? I’ll be on my own and don’t want to be carting tons of bags all around town. Thanks in advance.
