This hotel reminded me of some of the more cramped places I've stayed in Manhattan and central London. It's around the corner from the monorail station. Housekeeping ignored the "do not disturb" sign.

Hey there Larrysez, Thank you so much for staying with us at the Max on your recent travels up the coast to Seattle. Also, thanks for taking a moment to let others know about your experience.

Been staying monthly since before it became the Max because of the location, which is great. The latest improvements such as the restaurant are exceptional, the staff is great, and always accomodating. I recommend it to all my friends.

Hotel was great, staff was extremely nice and very helpful but beware - the rooms are small and the bathrooms are TINY. However, it's perfect for a trip to explore Seattle and settle back into the hotel after a day of sightseeing.

This place is great. They make you feel like a rockstar. Super friendly staff. Only a couple little marks for not being able to print a reciept and it would be nice to be able to tip the valet to the room charges since I don't carry cash. I would stay again, no question.

There is less than 2 feet of space on each side of our queen size bed. The room is so small the only place to open our suitcase is on the bed. Then we can't leave it open during the stay! There is a suitcase stand in the closet, but there is no room to sit it out. The shower... More

Hotel Max stands right in the middle in downtown close to tourist attractions like Space needle, Chihuly gardens etc. The rooms of the hotel is too crumpy. There is hardly place to move or keep luggage. The room service was good. At this price or a little more you could get lot better hotels in near by areas.
