The August issue of Travel & Leisure just came out with a great mention of our beloved Pike Place Market! In the Tagged section, T&L lists real time recommendations from Facebook and Twitter fans. Lucky for us, a recent guest mentioned the view from our rooftop water view deck! If you need a little getaway, give us a call or check availability here.
The new exhibit that opened last month at the Seattle Art Museum is not to be missed! Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion showcases the innovation of Japanese fashion from the past three decades. Prepare to be blown away by these visual displays of color, texture and aesthetic creativity.

Have you seen Inn at the Market’s Seattle hotel specials involving the King Tut exhibition at Seattle Pacific Science Center? Our package includes 2 exclusive VIP tickets to Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs, 2 monorail tickets, valet parking, and locally made pyramid truffles. Check out our Seattle hotel deals to learn more.
The Seattle Times calls the King Tut exhibit, “beautifully arrayed and lit,” adding that, “almost all the pieces have room enough to walk around them,” including “dazzling gold jewelry, masks, and personal items.”
Seattle is King Tut’s last North American appearance and Egypt has stated that the artifacts will then remain in Egypt indefinitely. This really could be your last chance to view these artifacts.
Earlier this year, we let you know about Travel + Leisure’s 2012 World’s Best Awards.
Well… Travel + Leisure readers recently voted Inn at the Market as one of the best small city hotels in America. Inn at the Market ranked number eight, not just among downtown Seattle hotels
, but nationwide!
And, don’t worry, we can be on World’s Best lists and still remain one of Seattle’s best kept secrets.
On your next visit to our downtown Seattle hotel, be sure to stop in and see the current exhibit at Seattle Art Musuem - Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth - showing now through June 5, 2011.
The SAM website says: ”Nick Cave tailors suits that are sculpture, clothing characters that spring out of his imagination. Stately guardians preside in shaggy, day-glow pink hair; polar bears wear sweaters that stick out in humorous places; and dancers are adorned with white beaded filigree crowns. Suits like this have never been seen before.” For the full write-up, click here.
