- The hotel sets out a free hot breakfast each morning as well as an evening dinner buffet (available Monday–Thursday) with complimentary entrees, soup, salad, and beer or wine. Homewood Suites also offers a grocery-shopping service free of charge.

Downtown Seattle: Gourmet Coffee Shops and Art Galleries in Coastal Urban Center
Street performers often play music as shoppers walk beneath the iconic Public Market Center sign at the open-air Pike Place Market, located just about a half mile southwest of the hotel. One of Seattle’s most renowned attractions, the marketplace bustles with both locals and out-of-towners browsing vendors selling fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, flowers, and meat. Before the spread of Starbucks to every corner, Seattleites grabbed cups of java at the company's original coffeehouse, which first opened here in 1971.
Head a few blocks north of the market to find even more gourmet coffee shops in the inviting neighborhood of Belltown, an arts district filled with cafés, shops, and galleries galore. One such gallery, Roq La Rue, showcases rotating exhibits with an emphasis on pop surrealism and underground contemporary art.
