Art-filled accommodations in downtown Seattle
The Hotel Max combines art and stylish boutique comfort, all within walking distance of Seattle's most famous attractions. Almost 400 works by 39 Seattle artists and photographers decorate rooms and public spaces. The Hotel Max takes advantage of its art niche to occasionally offer packages and deals tied to exhibits at the nearby Seattle Art Museum. The Hotel Max's restaurant, Redfin, focuses on Japanese specialties and serves breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner.
Highlights
  • Art work by local artists and photographers on display in the lobby, hallways and guest rooms
  • Aveda-brand bathroom amenities
  • Close to well-known Seattle restaurants, including Wild Ginger
  • Pet friendly (fees apply)
Rooms

Not surprisingly, each room at the Hotel Max sports an arty title. Solo art has a double bed and teak desk. Art of two beds rooms boast two double beds. Queen of art rooms sport a queen bed and artist king has king-size beds. Soothing tones of sage, charcoal gray and vegetal oranges decorate each room. All rooms have high thread-count linens and duvets, robes, coffee makers with Organa coffee and Steven Smith tea, Aveda bath amenities, a menu of pillow choices and a menu of spiritual inspiration suitable for almost any belief system. 

Features

An art-filled lobby, guest rooms and hallways underscore the Hotel Max's dedication to art and Seattle-area artists and photographers. If the point is to create a serene environment, the Hotel Max follows up admirably with rooms done in calming hues. In-room tea accompanies in-room coffee and a spiritual menu promises inspiration for almost any faith or belief system. A whimsical "you got it" button on the telephone links guests with hotel services.

Nice concept, but still an old building.

The art concept of the hotel is very nice, and certainly gives much character. Every floor looks different with different photos gracing the room doors, so wandering other floors is fun too, if it makes you look somewhat suspicious. My queen room had the smallest shower stall ever though, and heating A/C was an old fashioned loud fan on the window with no thermostat. Location was very good, with both Capitol Hill businesses and downtown equally close on foot. They are trying very hard and generally did a good job renovating, but those are the limits they couldn't overcome.

Great location!

The room is bigger than it looks in the pictures and the bed was incredibly comfortable, great location also! One note: get smaller TVs for the rooms, they block the view of the art work.

Stay at Hotel Max

I have chosen Hotel Max because I need to do some business at downtown, seattle. The location is great, I just need to walk four blocks to work. Room is clean and furnitures are new. The only issue is that if you want to surfing the Internet, you need to pay 12$ per today, which is free in many other hotels.

Great Time in Seattle

Hotel Max offers the perfect boutique quality hotel experiece, located in a fantatic location walking distance from all the great sights and shopping in downtown Seattle. Everything was only a short walk away. The staff was friendly and professional, the room small but very comfortable and well appointed. I felt very pleased with my choice and highly recommend Hotel Max for business or vacation travellers.

Hotel Max is an Oxymoron

We booked a room at the Hotel Max for a romantic one night get away, but the room, and especially the bathroom were so tiny it was cumbersome. It's in a great location, within walking distance to great restaraunts and shopping, it's just too small. I literally had to duck in the shower or I would have hit my head on the ceiling. Cute, quaint, W hotel lite.

Hotel Max delivered!!!

Hotel Max was such a great experience for us as we wanted a quick weekend getaway in Seattle before our new baby arrives. The location couldn't have been more convenient with just a short few blocks to Westlake shopping and restaurants. The hotel staff was so incredibly helpful and friendly. We were constantly amazed by how much they were willing to go the extra mile, from the vallet staff, and free pillow menu! The atmosphere is exactly what it promises: modern art infused with a classic turn of the century quality to the building. Fresh and clean. The room was a bit smaller, but very well done. The beds have to be the best I've slept on in any hotel, even 5 stars. We will DEFINITELY be back!
