This hotel is near the space needle, Chihully glass works museum, and many restaurants but Tin Mercer is a short walk and tough to beat. The showers are larger than most hotels. The card access more secure than most as well. They have comfortable beds as well. No complaints.

First thing I thought when I walked in my room was that it actually looked like the photos. I somehow ended up with a double queen room, even though it was just me. But it was a nice big room, very well kept up. No tub, but the bathroom was well designed, and large. I had a hillside view, not... More

Dear Sionnan, Thanks for your belated, but, kind review. We are glad to see that you had a positive experience overall. Also, the "dilapidated building" you referred to that was present during your visit has been removed, and some lovely, and tastefully designed condominiums are being established in that space. We hope that you'll have another chance to visit us... More

Everything about the hotel was great! The staff was friendly and the attention to detail was clear in every aspect. The room was clean and comfortable and the beds and bedding were great for our week stay. The shuttle service was nice and the drivers were helpful and friendly. The schedule is limited, so plan for that but getting around... More

Great location, close to Seattle Center and monorail for an easy trip to downtown. Also easy walking to Lake Union, although more than a mile to my conference location. Close to great restaurants, including the Rock inside the hotel. Comfortable, large rooms. Couldn't quite figure out the optimal way to use the European style duvets, but they were cozy and... More

Stayed here for 5 days and it was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The little cafe in the lobby does some food for breakfast which is great for a quick bite. The coffee and cakes in the afternoon are a great idea. The location is not to bad either. Easy to get into downtown Seattle.

This hotel is unique and wonderful. I stayed here for 4 nights because of it's location to SPU. I'm so glad I did! There is coffee & pineapple cupcakes in the afternoon in the lobby which was a wonderful surprise. The staff was so helpful and the rooms are comfortable and beautiful.

Great location! Minutes from the Space Needle and so much more! Wonderful staff! Fun decor, a bed that I simply did not want to leave in the morning! LOVED the marshmallow-y cloud-like duvets! Pineapple hospitality! Coffee shop in lobby was going through renos so they compensated by offering free pastries and coffee/tea in lobby in the morning. Not necessary but... More

Wow, thanks for the great feedback! I love that word: "Marshmallow-y".. in describing our duvets, it is perfect. I am glad that our renovation project this week was not an inconvenience for you and that you'll be back to see us again. Finally, thanks for your compliments of our staff and for recommending us.

We had a pleasant stay at the Maxwell. The room was very bigand the bed was incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was clean, no bathtub.

Maxwell hotel is a wonderful boutique hotel only 1.5 miles from pike's market. The lobby and rooms are beautiful and quirky. Everything in the room, including a stuffed puppy for the kids, is free. It was so nice to see free water coffee etc in the room. So many hotels nowadays charge for extras in the room. Not the Maxwell!

Dear Mmaxuta, Thanks for your wonderful feedback. We are pleased to see that we made a great impression on you! I must clarify one point though, while you are right in that we offer many free amenities, the replica Husky Puppy that we feature in all rooms is actually not free. It is available for purchase at a modest fee... More
