Comfortable family hotel

Loved the whole hotel - free parking, spacious rooms(5 people! Comfortably), friendly staff, no shower curtains, warm pool, comfortable lobby, DVD players in room, Keurig in room, fridge in room, plush towels, 5 star shuttle driver & good food recommendations all at a VERY good price! It's a hidden gem! There are more details to their perks like bikes and umbrellas too just waiting for you to discover when you need it!

Great little place

The Maxwell was gorgeous and the staff very friendly. The local shuttle was great and the location perfect for walking to Seattle Center. The only slight issue we had was that there is no where to get breakfast before 6:30 on Sunday morning other than a 24 hour drug store a few blocks away.

My new favorite hotel!

The Maxwell is simply terrific! From the friendly and helpful staff to the great accommodations and amenities our stay really made our trip that much better. The room has all you need and more, a refrigerator, microwave, kurig, popcorn, water bottles, large television and a umbrella bc you are in Seattle. The hotel provides a cupcake reception everyday and lends bicycles to guests. They also provide a shuttle to locations which we used everyday and the drivers were great at helping us navigate the city and with recommendations. I plan a returning here from now on whenever I visit Seattle!

The rock restaurant located in the hotel has great happy hour food and drinks which you can take to your room. Save it for later and heat it up all in the comfort of your own room.

Great place, not sure why it's 3 stars.

This place was modern, clean, comfortable, welcoming, helpful, etc... Can't say enough good things about it. Location would be the only slight negative, as only the Space Needle area is walk-able. They do offer shuttle service that we used to get to Pike's market. We rented a car, and parking wasn't as bad as they made it out to be (used to Chicago prices, so these were considerably lower still). Underground parking is free at the hotel. Couple nice Thai places, and a great breakfast/coffee place within a few blocks. Hotel bar/restaurant is it's own entity and pretty good. Everyone was very nice. Pool was tiny, but good enough for my 11 year old.

Hotel before cruise

We toured Seattle for 2 days before getting on a Carnival Alaska cruise. We rented a car from the airport so we could drive into the Cascades to visit friends, otherwise, the train, taxi and shuttle would have been sufficient. We also drove to look at Deadliest Catch boats & fish ladder/locks. 1st evening hotel's shuttle dropped us off at the waterfront, walked back to hotel afterwards. Walked to space needle area several times. After cruise, checked bags direct through ship to airline, took taxi to waterfront with only carry-on bags, bought stuff at market, walked to train which took us to airport. All very easy.

Space Needle restaurant for lunch, spectacular view (better than on top of space needle) and delicious food. Made reservations online a few weeks before trip.

Excellent trip to Seattle

This hotel was fantastic and even better than I expected. It is a only a few blocks from the space needle and the monorail which takes you to the downtown area. They also have a shuttle which will drop you off downtown for free. The amenities were awesome and the room was large and luxurious. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Seattle.

Booked based on reviews - waaaayyyy better!

First trip to Seattle - we'll be coming back. Maxwell Hotel hit the mark on all counts - we even got the "small" room. I travel a lot - 3-4 trips a year. As far as hotel stays this was a highlight. Great for a family. Location excellent - walking, free hotel shuttle or public transport gets you anywhere you need to go. Don't rent a car. Yes there are cupcakes, cute loaner bikes, DVDs and bright yellow umbrellas. Smiles and genuine "can I help you" from all staff - they like their jobs. Could have stayed in room all day. Just book the room!

Perfect

I loved this hotel. The area had lots of activities, restaurants, bars and the Seattle center across the street. I appreciated the free shuttle to downtown. I would have used the loaner bicycles if it had not been raining. I would stay there again in a heart beat.

Back again!

Great spot for Seattle Center functions. Easy parking below the hotel, secure and well lit lets you arrive and depart dry and comfortable regardless of the weather. Pizza restaurant within the building, coffee shop on site, friendly staff, all good stuff. Minor complaints, one restroom with one stall on main floor, pretty inconvenient when a group leaves the bar and is headed out for a function. Bar is typically very understaffed late. They give it a great effort, but one bartender and one waitress for a full bar is not enough, and we have experienced this on several occasions this year. Will we return? Yes.
