We visited Seattle for a "weekend away in the big city". A coworker had suggested the Maxwell, and so I tried it. I was VERY satisfied with the recommendation. It was everything a major city hotel could be. It is located just across the street from the Seattle Center, within walking distance of many interesting sights. Our room had a view of the Space Needle disappearing up into the low clouds over Seattle. Getting to the hotel by car was easy. Parking was ample. The desk staff were friendly and welcoming. Complimentary coffee and mini-cupcakes were available in the lobby. The rooms were nicely designed (we LOVED the shower), clean and spacious. Room, hallway, elevator, lobby style was elegant but not overbearing. The housekeeping staff were polite and efficient. The beds and pillows were comfortable, WIFI was free and fast. The hotel had a restaurant on the main floor (The Rock) that had excellent food and great service. We were pampered.
So, what's not to like? My only issues were that the street noise was a bit loud even up on the 4th floor (late night revelers and motorcycles on the street), something that a set of comfortable earplugs fixed. The hotel really has no great views. The view we had of the Space Needle also included the parking garage for the Seattle Center. Breakfasts are not included. There is however a small espresso are in the lobby that sells coffee and pastries in the morning.
Still, it is a reasonably priced hotel that I would certainly stay at again on my next trip into Seattle.
As a tip: If you will be attending a show at Teatro Zinzani just across the street, look on the Zinzani website for a 15% off Hotel Maxwell discount code. This is something I saw only after I'd booked and paid.
