Harbor Steps - 1 Block From Pike Place Market And Seattle Water Front!
"My husband had a conference in Seattle. Rather than staying in a hotel, we decided to rent this apartment. What a fabulous decision! Friends [in hotels] had never considered this option and wished they had. The apartment is very clean and neat. We never heard a sound from other dwellers. Checking in and out was very easy. The bed was very comfortable. And best of all, the location was wonderful. We felt very safe and walked every where. Pike's Market was just around the corner--a culinary delight as well as fun to explore. We really enjoyed the chowder at Pike's Chowder Cafe, the best salmon ever at Elliot's, wonderful pizza a short walk away. We LOVED Paroshky's Russian Bakery...the cinnamon apple roles are the best. We went to the Crumpet place and enjoyed a unique treat. The macaroni and cheese was fabulous at a cheese shop near Paroshky's Bakery; we watched them make cheese while eating our bowl of mac and cheese--way better than the blue box Kraft brand! For groceries, Target is just about a block or so away and has a lot of basic foods. Bring your re-usable bags and save a nickel. [There are some in the apartment :-)).] We found the public transportation refreshing. Don't take a cab from the airport as that will cost you close to $50. Hop on the Link [train] for 2.50, and quick as a wink, you are at University stop. Walk a block downhill and you are home. We used the public transportation to go to the climbing gym up north and to the Needle and Chulhuly glass show. [The Chulhuly glass is very much worth the cost and time!] Downside to this apartment? If one wanted to stay in to watch TV or a movie, there didn't seem to be much on. No satellite or premium channels. Didn't really bother us, though, because we were out and about all the time. We hope to return to Seattle...and we hope this apartment is open when we come. We would definitely stay here again."
