Mother's Day - Inn at the Market

Mom's Retreat Package

Not All Superheroes Wear Capes – Inn At The Market’s Mom’s Retreat Package Is a Great Way to Plan Ahead…and Show Mom Who Matters Most 

It’s way easier to get what we need, before we need it. Consider an (almost empty) tank of gas, a water heater well past its prime, or the recent fun of Tax Day (April 18th, 2022…apologies for even bringing it up).

In all three cases, the last minute is an easy habit to fall into. But with this habit comes a risk that really doesn’t pay off. The wrong calculation means we’re respectively stranded roadside waiting for AAA, showering in frigid water, or paying a bunch of IRS penalties (cringe).    

While this isn’t breaking news, the truth is we’re all guilty of waiting until the last minute. Which is fine for things that are far off, unlikely to happen, cheap to fix if they come to fruition, or simply not sensitive to advance planning. 

But if something is certain, with known variables, and has a high financial or emotional cost later, the discipline of planning ahead sure comes in handy.

Enter Sunday, May 8th, 2022. MOTHER’S DAY.

Depending on how you choose to celebrate this holiday, and who you choose to appreciate (mom, grandma, spouse, somebody else – we all do it differently), does it really pay off to grab a card and whatever’s left in the (decimated) floral department Saturday night? 

(Or for some of us, Sunday morning? Gulp!)

If you’re thinking, “Sure, that’s how I’ve always done it,” consider these excerpts from fun Mother’s Day Cards…

Moms! Not All Superheroes Wear Capes

“You Were Right!” There, I Said It. Happy Mother’s Day

Moms! They’re Like Dads, Only Smarter

…or a few lighthearted quotes about Mom:

“The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is mom.” – Anonymous

“My mother had a great deal of trouble with me. But I think she enjoyed it.” – Mark Twain

“Life doesn’t come with a manual. It comes with a mother.” – Anonymous

That last one really packs a punch. Meanwhile, the ironic thing about Mother’s Day is this fact: we have the agency to celebrate it whenever we want, not just when someone tells us to. And any excuse to express gratitude helps everyone involved feel like they matter. 

Nonetheless here we sit, with Mother’s Day 2022 fast approaching. Here at Inn at the Market, we have a solution that removes the risk from waiting until the last minute, honors the moms in your life, and is a fantastic way to express gratitude anytime, because there are no date limitations when it comes to…

Our Mom’s Retreat package! 

Treat any mom you know to a luxurious, relaxing, pampering escape, featuring:

• One bottle of local wine. (Which brings up another great quote: “Motherhood. Powered by love. Fueled by coffee. Sustained by wine.” – Anonymous)

  • A 60-minute, in-room massage, scheduled in advance for heightened convenience (absolutely no stress for the guest, Inn at the Market manages the scheduling details). 
  • One $35 food and beverage credit. A great treat for mom as Inn at the Market boasts three of the best restaurants in downtown Seattle: Café Campagne’s classic French fare, Bacco’s relaxed breakfast all day (perfect after sleeping in), or Sushi Kashiba’s renown Japanese cuisine. 
  • An in-room movie (which may contribute to the need to sleep in).
  • Valet parking (our way of doubling down on “no stress” for our guests)


Book our Mom’s Retreat package today. It’s the perfect case for planning ahead: Mother’s Day is certain, you know the variables, and the emotional cost of continuing to wait until the last minute is pretty high (and maybe the financial cost too). 

If you have any questions, please contact us today, we’re happy to help! 

You’ll note the themes here are gratitude, appreciation, celebration, relaxation, destressing, and planning ahead. With summer FINALLY right around the corner (and winter’s chill and moisture ALMOST a distant memory), “waiting until the perfect time” (or last minute) is not an effective strategy when you need to recharge, show a little self-appreciation, and de-stress with a vacation. 

Instead, you should carve out time to fill your carafe with sights and sounds that make you feel whole again. Summer in Seattle – and a stay at Inn at the Market – affords ample opportunity to do just that. 

See the city sights, including the Space Needle, Seattle Waterfront, Alki Beach, and Fisherman’s Terminal. Enjoy the city’s thriving restaurant scene Downtown, on vibrant Capitol Hill, or throughout a host of other neighborhoods.  

Or perhaps a day trip to the stunning Olympic Peninsula, a visit to Washington’s oldest winery Chateau Ste Michelle, or a ferry ride across the incredible waterways between the San Juan Islands fits the bill. 

Regardless of what you choose, summer sunshine and high temperatures between 70° and 80° make Seattle the best place to be (in the nation) between June and September (in our humble opinion). And don’t forget, thanks to our latitude, that summer sun sets at 9:01 p.m. on July 17, 2022…with the gentle pink, red, and gold hues simmering on the horizon until almost 10:00…we can’t WAIT…(and we’re super pumped, if you didn’t notice). 

If you have any questions or want to plan ahead and make us a part of your future summer plans, don’t hesitate: Give us a call or drop us a note, we’re happy to talk options. 

Remember, it’s easier to get what we need, before we need it. And not all superheroes wear capes. Our Mom’s Retreat package is a great way to plan ahead…and show mom who matters most.
