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.

Okay, but not as good as I expected.

There was only luke warm water in the morning and my room was next to the elevator, so I was woken up several times during the night - unacceptable. I will not stay there again no matter how nice it looked - the hotel did not perform. Parking fees were NOT disclosed up front and they were $30 for 1 night.

Very nice!

Hotel Max is very conveniently located in downtown seattle. Although the heating system is not really convenient (hard to deal with) the room I stayed in (King of hearts) was really nice and comortable. The staff was always smiling, willing to chat with me, and ready to help. I would recommand this hotel to everyone!

Very nicely appointed hotel. Great interior design/colours/art. Room was a little small but by no means too small. Best, most comfortable bedding I have had in a hotel. I would recomend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in something a little more niche market and personal than the big chains.

Hotel Max good location for the money

Hotel Max, very stylish hotel if you like art. Location is good. It close to everything. Starbuck is in every corner of the hotel. Redfin Resturant has a good breakfast. The only bad thing about the hotel is the bathroom is too small and you can hear every noise outside. The bed is good.

To the Max

I was in town for a conference at the Washington State Convention Center. The location of the hotel made walking to and from the convention a breeze, and was also close to tons of great shops and restaurants in and around Westlake Center. My first impression when I stepped through the front doors after I had been greeted by the valet attendant, was that the music in the lobby was awesome and that the art was cool too. I was welcomed warmly by the front desk gal who asked if it was my first time at the hotel and what brought me to town. She made checking in easy and asked if she could make any recomendations to me regarding dining, etc. When I asked her how much they charge to use their WiFi, which I saw online there was a fee for, she informed me that she would give me a password to access the Wifi for FREE, which I thought was a really nice touch. When I got off the elevator on my floor I immediately noticed the decor of my hall, every door was a black and white photo of a Seattle musician, Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Eddie Vedder, etc. I couldn't help but walk up and down the hall to check out each door. Once in my room I had two thoughts, this room is really neat and this room is pretty cramped, which was ok because I was staying by myself. The room itself wasn't super small but the bathroom was pretty cramped. That having been said, it had everything in it that I would need for a relaxing night away from home. The one reason that I chose not to give this hotel a 5 star rating was due to the fact that I could hear the guests next door to my room pretty clearly, and although it didn't bother me too much I think that the excess noise would bother others so I thought that should be mentioned. Other than that, if I have the need to stay downtown ever again, I will more than likely check for a good deal at Hotel Max again.
