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 hotel for two nights. Rooms are super small, along with bathroom, but has everything you need. Good location, everything is walking distance. Fantastic resturant attached/next door. This makes the rooms smell like BBQ.

Great for Downtown, Close to the Space

The hotel was nice, clean and definitely has its own unique aesthetic qualities. The room was a bit smaller than expected from the pictures, but was well furnished and had some good views of the downtown area. From the airport, it's a quick light rail ride into Seattle and about a five minute walk from the exit. Great dining / entertainment opportunities nearby and the hotel itself is a four minute monorail ride (from a mall near the hotel) to the Space Needle, which provides the most fantastic views (lucky to be there on a clear day). Also close to Pike's Place, a definite place to check out when staying there (also home to the first Starbucks). Concierge was good at offering up suggestions for entertainment on New Years Eve.

Small rooms, stuck up staff

The hotel has great decor, but the rooms are barely large enough to accommodate the double bed. we were on the 2nd floor next to the loading dock which meant that around 6 am beeping trucks were rumbling outside the window. My friend dropped off a package for us at the front desk and they were really rude to her about getting it to us. I suppose that with the discount it wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't stay here again.

Great location, tiny rooms.

This hotel looks great (funky) and is in a good location in walking distance to most downtown attractions, but the rooms are very small. Really only room for your bed and a couple of side tables. Comfortable beds and restaurant attached to the hotel is great. Parking is VERY expensive, but the staff is quite helpful.

Pike Place market and the surrounding alleys provide multiple options for great dining. Try the Alibi Room (amazing pizza) or Le Pichet (French) for delicious, reasonably priced food.

A nice little spot

Hotel is in a great location and the free parking is a real bonus in overpriced Seattle downtown. BUT, room was very noisy. A group was in the rooms across the hall and celebrating a birthday. Went until 3am. They should have been placed in a separate area, not with other travellers. We tried to watch a movie at night, but they could not get our pay per vue to work. Didn't offer to bring in a new tv or anything. Just told us we were out of luck. No offer of any compensation or consideration at all.

ok for location, nothing special

The room was fine, good location inside the property. Staff was friendly enoough, but nothing special. It was centrally located in the city, which was a good thing. I think you can do better for the money.

Satisfactory

First, the good stuff: You can walk to a lot of really great places, so the location is incredible. It's sort of hip, so if you're into that, that's cool. The staff was really nice and helpful and let me check in early. The bed was comfortable, and there was a good mini-bar. Here are the negatives: $33 overnight valet parking. I get that it's downtown, but that's crazy. I parked across the street for $10. The rooms are smallish, and I didn't check to see what the building was before it was a hotel, but it felt like it could have been an industrial building of some sort. There are touches of "industrial chic" in the design, and it's what I would describe as "meh". I stayed there because it's 2 blocks from a friend's condo, so it was worth it to me. Next time I'll probably stay closer to Pike's Place or at a nicer hotel, even if I have to pay a little more. But compared to the other hotels in the area, Max is decently priced. I actually liked the Marriott Courtyard in Redmond more, and it was cheaper, but if you want the downtown Seattle experience, this is an OK pick. Oh, but if you're traveling with a friend or family, go somewhere else. This struck me as a good solo-traveler hotel.
