comfortable rooms

Comfortable clean rooms. Nice pool. Friendly staff. Only somewhat noisy. TV's do not support hdmi devices. Ordered a Hill view room, had a view of the parking lot wall. All in all a good place to spend the nights though.

Near Attractions, Pet-Friendly (good or bad)

The hotel is located near the Space Needle, Experience Music Project, and many other attractions. Parking can be difficult, either because of the number of spaces in the garage, or because of the size of parking spots, especially if you have an SUV. The hotel is boldly decorated. Rooms are fairly clean, and cleaning staff is nice, though we didn't know about the pet rooms vs non-pet rooms until we already slept in the room and had bad allergies. I may stay here again because of the location and reasonable price, but I would definitely avoid a pet room.

Awesome experience!

The Maxwell Hotel far exceeded my expectations. My flight arrived way earlier than expected and my husband figured he'd take a chance and ask if we could check in early. They totally let us! The staff was so friendly throughout our 5 night stay. The room was perfect and the bed comfy. The hotel is super close and within walking distance to many Seattle attractions. But they also have free parking, free bike rentals, and free shuttle. Loved everything about this place and the complimentary afternoon/evening cupcakes & coffee were just icing on the cake.

Great Location!

I loved the hotel. I think it's a great location. It's away from buzz of the city, yet literally walking distance (like a block or two from the hotel) to the space needle, EMP museum and monorail. Can't beat free parking! Very nice and helpful staff. Free shuttle to close areas like the aquarium and pike place Market. In the afternoon they have free coffee and small cupcakes in the lobby. Pizza at the rock restaurant is pretty good as well. Room is very nice, clean and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

To get to pike place market, take the monorail to the last stop (monorail is located right by the EMP museum, you can't miss it...which is a block away from the hotel) and pike place is just a couple of blocks away. This is helpful to avoid a drive and save money on parking and parking time limits.

The Maxwell is the best!

The Maxwell Hotel was in the perfect location for my trip, right next to KeyArena/Seattle Center with plenty of restaurants and things to check out close by. I was easily able to walk downtown or take the Monorail to get where I needed to go. The room was huge and beautiful and unique! Bonus - the bathroom was awesome! I really appreciated their green efforts with the dispensers of toiletries on the wall rather than separate plastic bottles. The beds were very comfortable. It seemed like everything in the room was of great quality and the layout was great. I would highly recommend this hotel. I used a discount code plus my Orbucks, so the price was really reasonable.

A wonderful "base" to explore a part of Seattle we hadn't before. Location to new "territory" was superb. Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We will stay here again!
