No trip to Seattle is complete without a visit to the iconic Pike Place Market. You might as well just stay near the market, because it’s so incredible that you’ll want to devote a fair amount of time to exploring it. In and around the market are some of Seattle’s best seafood restaurants and pubs, as well. At these hotels near Pike Place Market, you’re both near to the action and to the heart of the Emerald City.
Hotel Monaco — perfect for romantic getaways and access to rest of downtown

The hotel’s dining and conference offerings are on point as well, making this ideal for business travel.

The Hotel Ändra — perfect for visiting Belltown and Lake Union
Boutique hotels in city centers are the quickest way to feel like a local. You always get local accents, very often accompanied by artwork inspired by your surrounds, and in all probability won’t need to drive anywhere. The Hotel Ändra epitomizes this experience in Seattle. Walk a few short blocks to Pike Place Market. Or, head the other direction to Belltown and Lake Union, home to some of the city’s finest dining, nightlife, and craft beer. Back in the hotel, you’ll wrap yourself in Seattle’s iconic deep-hued aesthetic with the option to relax by the lobby fireplace or wine and dine at the onsite bar and restaurant.

The Four Seasons Seattle — perfect for going all-out
Four Seasons hotels are known for offering guests a unique experience of a place. At the Four Seasons Seattle that might come from the infinity pool overlooking Elliot’s Bay, or the easy harbor and skyline views from each room. Maybe it’s enjoying happy hour on the terrace as the ships come in from a day at sea. At any rate, a stay here is nearly as memorable as what you’d find at any of the hotels near Pike Place Market. If you need to impress, to treat, or to make up for, there’s simply no better place to do it.

The Edgewater — perfect for living like a rock star

Warwick Seattle — perfect for travelers on a budget
For those who’d rather spend their money at Pike Place Market than on accommodations, there’s the Warwick.
