I visit Seattle often and this place is like another home. Everyone working here is friendly, but professional. The location is close to everything but just on the edge so you are not surrounded by masses of people. The art in the rooms and around the hotel creates a fascinating atmosphere, always something different around the corner or down the... More

Such a great hotel and incredible staff. Also close to everything downtown. They had umbrellas you could use, gumballs for the Post Alley Gum Wall and free craft beer in the lobby in the afternoons. I mean...what else do you need??

Beautiful lobby/restaurant, but the rooms hardly seem boutique. Very small quarters, and the bathroom is a cruel joke if you are above 5 feet tall. Ads show funky, art inspired rooms; we had a painting on a wall. Ho hum...

I've stayed at both and love hotel Max. Free craft beer in lobby on arrival. Great decor. There was an Andy Warhol in the lobby. Cool atmosphere. Good food. Not crazy expensive. Would stay there again!

It is hard for me to understand the allure of something like Hotel Max. The rooms are very small, and you have top jump over the bed to get from one side to another. If you hope to have space to set up an ironing board.... forget it. And the bathrooms.... well, the bathrooms are a whole misery of their... More

I am a frequent visitor to Seattle, but this is the first time I've stayed at the Hotel Max. I was there for three days this week. Everyone I interacted with, especially the front desk, was extremely friendly and helpful--very customer service focused. I arrived fairly early in the morning, and there were some rooms ready. The front desk person... More

Great location for shopping and all that downtown Seattle has to offer, the federal court house, etc. Easy walk to Pacific Place center with shops, restaurants and theaters and downtown Macy's, Nordstroms and other major retailers. If you are shopping, easy walk to take packages back to room and hit the stores and restaurants again! Slightly 'quirky' in that front... More

Hey there GrandFan13! Thanks so much for staying with us at the Max during your recent travels to Seattle. Overall, I'm sorry we missed the mark. We try very hard to be upfront and honest about what to expect when staying with us. Knowing that our rooms are smaller than our cookie cutter counterparts we prefer to focus on providing... More

small rooms, but that's ok--you know that going in. very small bath tub/shower with way to small/short shower curtain -- it needs to be longer to avoid water getting all over the floor. wanted to like it more. everything was great except for the bathroom really. housekeeping didn't change the burned out bulb when left at base of the --...

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.
