“Perfect for the First-Time Tourist”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Great location, interesting decor, pet friendly, attentive staff, complimentary bikes, yummy cupcakes, free covered parking, many restaurants nearby. Did I leave anything out?

There is an excellent pizza joint in the same building, but a short walk up the street will take you to several interesting eateries, including vegetarian, Middle Eastern and other types of cusine. Teatro ZinZanni right is right across the street. It feels like a safe area to walk in. Easy access to I-5.

My kids really enjoyed the bikes. The staff showed them the best places to ride on the complimentary maps. All staff very friendly and helpful. It is a very easy walk to the Space Needle and EMP. Shuttle takes you to Public Market. There is bottled water, coffee, and microwave popcorn in room that is all free. Has a keurig coffee machine and fridge. Nice big walk-in tiled shower. Parking gets a little tight on weekends. Lobby is spacious and welcoming. The in-house coffee shop had decent coffee, but pastries were not that great (except of course the free cupcakes they put out at night, which were awesome!).

The fitness room is pretty small and basic; this is one area that could use improvement. The "swimmng pool" is not much bigger than a large hot-tub and really only for kiddies. They would be better off making the fitness area bigger and putting in a hot-tub instead of that mini-pool.

Located just about a 10 minute walk from the Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Art Museum, the EMP, and the monorail, this hotel already boasts a great location for some sight-seeing. The monorail heads downtown to more sights, but the shuttle service the hotel provides is great too. (Especially when you arrive at Westlake station with luggage!) The rooms are well stocked with soaps and shampoo, even lotion! There are also appliances, all in good condition. The tv I had had intermittent service from time to time, but was fine for what I needed. Room looked great, beds were fairly comfy but the walls were a tad thin for my liking. On Friday night I woke up to a couple rowdy residents going through the hall and sometimes could hear footsteps because my room backed up to the hallway, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Staff is friendly and very helpful, tried the cupcakes and they are fantastic! Overall a great experience and location (there is a Pho restaurant down the street that is GREAT, grab dinner there if you can) and I will definitely try and stay there again next time I'm up in Seattle.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and thank your for taking the time to leave us a review. It truly helps other travelers know where to stay and helps us improve our services. I'm terribly sorry for the rowdy people on Friday evening. We mostly have families and business travelers stay with us but you can never keep the bad eggs out all the time. We are always at the desk 24 hours a day so please let us help with any noise issues. Take care!

Quick trip to Seattle. Stayed for 2 nights. I was very happy with the hotel. The room was very clean and everything worked. The TV was confusing - you have to turn it on, then change the channel for it to work. Lots of cool little freebies. The cupcakes in the lobby were a nice touch. I am returning to Seattle again soon and will stay here again. Did not eat in the attached diner but plan to next time. Parking garage is small. If you're in a large car/truck don't even bother. Beds were very soft. Lobby staff was extremely helpful and professional with this first time tourist. About 3 blocks from the Space Needle and monorail. A breakfast in the lobby restaurant would be a nice addition, but I can't imagine a nicer hotel in this area for this price.

Room was really nice. Appreciated all of the extras: mini cupcakes in the PM, free coffee & popcorn in room, workout room (with a spin bike), indoor pool, free shuttle and bikes. Very quiet & I didn't even recall it was a pet friendly hotel until the last day when I saw a pet carrier leaving. Would definitely stay here again!

The Maxwell hotel was a great location. We were a 5-10 min walk away from the space needle which had a monorail to the city center. Everyone was so kind and helpful at the Maxwell. Also was a great price and exceeded my expectations. There was not a lot of noise so made it super easy to relax during the day or sleep in in the morning. I would highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed at the Maxwell for a week recently and we LOVED it. My 5 year old daughter cried on our last day because she didn't want to leave! Our family vacation in Seattle included me and my husband, our two small children and husband's parents, and this hotel worked for all of us. The kids loved the lap pool (we were almost always the only ones there) and the afternoon cupcakes, the in-laws loved the shuttle service to various Seattle tourist sights and we loved the location, the Pineapple Espresso cafe and the complimentary in-room treats (Keurig coffeemaker and microwave popcorn- again, you can never have enough snacks with kids around!!). We were skeptical of the bar/restaurant in the the lobby, but ended up eating or drinking there at least 3 times during our stay. It was just so convenient to have pizza (and booze) in the building!
The location really worked for us- right by the Seattle Center (where the bulk of our activities were centered) and Queen Anne.
The staff was so very nice and accommodating at all times. I also really appreciated that we weren't nickel-and-dimed with lots of little extra fees. All in all, I think this is the best hotel stay I have ever personally experienced. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: There are two grocery stores (Metropolitan Market and QFC) right around the corner from the hotel.

location's good. a market place opened 24hours within walking distance sells everything you need. the welcome cookies in the lobby is really tasty. bed very comfortable.
booking the same room type, we stayed here twice. seems the room on the 4th floor is better than that on the 2nd.

Room Tip: higher floor rooms better
