Fodor's Expert Review Inn at Harbor Steps
1221 1st Ave., Seattle, Washington, 98101, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Just steps from the waterfront and Pike Place Market, this inn is likely to please those looking for a B&B feel but with hotel amenities like a gym and pool. Although it's on the lower floors of a modern high-rise residential building, the decor is quaint, with lots of florals in the guest rooms, country-manor plaid armchairs in the lobby, and a cozy library. Guest rooms are large, with high ceilings, gas fireplaces, and tidy kitchenettes—some have private patios. Bathrooms have large tubs and oversize shower stalls—some have both. The complimentary breakfast buffet is extensive and delicious. Hors d'oeuvres, wine, and tea are served each afternoon in the library.
