Seattle Voices with David Watkins

He discusses his tips for keeping hotel guests happy and the influences of the diverse Pike Place Market community on the Inn at the Market, a boutique hotel tucked in the center of market. Plus, Watkins discusses his foray into city politics, including a recent stint on a task force which studied raising Seattle`s minimum wage and his efforts to improve downtown public safety.
