Seattle Oasis Vacation Rentals has many Seattle luxury vacation rentals available in Newmark Tower, right across the street from Seattle’s top tourist destination, Pike Place Market.
If you pick a Newmark unit with a western facing view, you can wake up to all the sights of market activity below, during the peak of the morning rush, and as traffic simmers down in the afternoon. You can also watch Seattle’s famous ferries sail quietly across Elliott Bay while the snow-capped Olympic Mountains sparkle in the distance. In season, you can also watch massive cruise ships come and go from Seattle’s nearby cruise ship terminals. If your unit has eastern facing windows, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains, Lake Union, Lake Washington, and the city skyline.
Tourists travel to the Emerald City from around the world to take a picture in front of the iconic Pike Place Market sign near 1st Avenue and Pike Street. Some are surprised to learn the towering red neon letters seen in virtually every movie or TV show that’s set in Seattle actually read “Public Market Center”. But that’s just one of many surprises to be had when you explore the thriving market that lies right outside your vacation rental front door.
If you’ve never seen a fish take flight, be sure to visit Pike Place Fish Market to see the fishmongers toss fresh Wild King Salmon from the market floor to where it can be wrapped and sold. If you walk through the market’s countless day stalls, the flower, produce, spices, art and gift vendors you meet one day may be totally different from those you meet the next. While most tourists just window shop the market because they are staying in a hotel, you have a fully appointed chef’s kitchen awaiting you at your home away from home. Buy some fresh seafood and locally sourced vegetables to prepare a truly authentic dish from the Pacific Northwest and bring it home to one of our vacation rentals in Seattle’s Pike Place Market.
The waters in Elliott Bay may be a bit too chilly to swim in — even on the hottest summer days — but you can still take a refreshing swim year round in Newmark Tower’s indoor pool.
Seattle Oasis also has Seattle luxury vacation rentals nearby at Waterfront Landings, just down the western market stairs (or express elevators) as you walk towards the Seattle Great Wheel (our city’s Ferris Wheel) and the Seattle Aquarium.
