Enjoy a Getaway in the City with Inn at The Market’s Holiday Shopping Package

Here at Inn at the Market we’re super excited (as always) that the holidays are just around the corner. Some of our enthusiasm is certainly tied to the joy we spread by transforming our courtyard into a winter wonderland, complete with our official Inn at the Market tree (which happens to be the perfect place to snap that special holiday photo). And then there’s the transformation of Pike Place Market itself this time o’ year: from small vendor to brick-and-mortar business, our fabulous, breathtaking Seattle icon is simply imbued with cheer.  

And who couldn’t use more cheer, right?

But most of all, this is the season when we celebrate the people in our lives who give us the support we need to make something bigger than ourselves, something experiential. This is the time to make connections, invent, create, and experience holiday magic…TOGETHER.

That means you’re the most important ingredient in the mix.

So we want you to know both what we have in store that will make a stay at Inn at the Market so special this holiday season, and why you won’t want to miss any of the magic at Pike Place Market as the time of revelry draws near.

9 Acres of Holiday Bliss

Okay, why all the hubbub? This is a magical season for sure, but what makes a stay at Inn at the Market so uniquely enchanting this time of year?

You may have heard: Inn at the Market is the only downtown Seattle hotel located merely steps away from the vibrant atmosphere of Pike Place Market. Now take that vibrancy and crank it up to 11 during the 27th Annual Magic in the Market, Saturday November 26th, 2022, from 11:00 a.m.—5:30 p.m.

That’s right, join us for Magic in the Market, it’s quite the holiday sight-to-behold (to the degree we couldn’t fit ever detail here, but you’ll get the idea):

  • Free Santa Karl & Crafty (the Market Mascot!) Holiday Photos
  • Hands-On-Hanukkah Kids Crafts
  • Holiday Cookie Decorating
  • Holiday Treats on Pike Place—we’re talking festive tents, joyous food offerings, and seasonal beverages galore
  • Deck the Pav’ Holiday Craft Showcase—a remarkable display of ornaments, holiday décor (and more)

And the main event you won’t want to miss—the Pike Place Market Lighting Ceremony.

Santa and his supporting cast of Can Can Culinary Cabaret dancers countdown to light the tree, giant vegetables, reindeer, pigs, and the entire Market for the Holiday Season.  

Note: visitors who spend $50 during Magic at the Market receive two free limited-edition Pike Place Market wrapping paper rolls. Awesome!
