My boyfriend and I stayed at the Maxwell for 3 nights in March. It's a great hotel! We stayed in a duet queen hill room. The room was very nice - wood floors, comfy pillows, big TV, DVD player (there's a RedBox to rent movies at the QFC store close to the hotel), mini Keurig, and complementary water and popcorn. They also have mini pineapple cupcakes for happy hour each afternoon and they were yummy! There's a cafe where you can get drinks/breakfast and a pizza bar at the hotel (can't review food because we didn't eat there).
The reception desk staff were very helpful providing us with maps/directions and restaurant recommendations around the area. There are a lot of Asian restaurants around the hotel particularly (Thai, Vietnamese; We ate at Bahn Thai and it was really good). We also walked to Dick's Drive-In for lunch one day, which was yummy. The hotel is in close proximity (5-10 minute walk) to the Space Needle, EMP Museum, Monorail, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Key Arena, and Chihuly Garden and Glass. We were glad to stay in this area rather than downtown. We felt the area was nicer and were more comfortable being out after dark. Plus, it was really easy to get to downtown. You can make reservations to ride the Pineapple Express van to the sites that are further away (Pike Place Market particularly), but we enjoyed taking the Monorail downtown and exploring from there.
Overall, we had a great stay! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone!
