We are getting excited for the first official game of the season! Just six days away until our beloved Seattle Mariners return to Safeco Field. The return of the Mariners officially marks spring in Seattle for many locals and visitors. It’s been too long since we’ve enjoyed those garlic fries and salmon sandwiches! If you’re like us, you know part of the fun is the ball park food. Check out a full list of vendors here. Just a reminder, Safeco field has a retractable roof that closes when the rains starts to fall. Located about 15 blocks from the Inn at the Market, Safeco is easily accessible via car, bus or on foot. Stop by our Front Desk during your next visit to find out about transportation, tickets or other attractions in the area.
