The only reason to stay at Hotel Max is the location. After reading the reviews from other users we specifically asked for a larger room since they are known for putting Priceline reservation holders in the smallest rooms. We were given a room so small that our 4 suitcases could not fit in the room and it was directly in front of the elevator door. We went back to the desk and asked for a larger room away from the elevator. We were moved to room 307 in the corner on the back alley side. It was 34 degrees outside in the middle of the afternoon, we walked in the room to find the heater was completely off. We immediately cycled on the heater, left our suitcases and went for a walk in the cold to pike place. A few hours later we came back the room was still freezing so we cycled the heater a few times and ran the shower at full hot water many times to let the steam warm up the room. It took a full 36 hours to heat the room.
The room was not much larger than the first but it did have a almost full bath, however only one person can use it at a time, too cramped to share the sink. Ask for extra towels, the marble floor is too cold to walk on barefoot. We made use of every bit of space we could find for our luggage, not much space to even walk around the bed. The bed was ok, not as good as the bed at Silver Cloud Stadium or Hotel Monaco or the Sheraton around the corner, but that is what you get sometimes with Priceline. The room was clean and we did not find bedbugs. There was some noise from buses and garbage trucks but it was not constant. There were only pull down shades over the windows, no curtains to insulate the noise or temperature.
They charge premium for everything. If you need wifi bring a hotspot or go to Starbucks next door. They use too much space including the mini fridge filling it with items for sale. There is a tiny closet with two robes. They say the robes are "luxurious", they could be had fabric softener been used and if they weren't sized for a giant which is ironic given the size of the room. But you can use them as extra blankets on the bed.
In summation you can stay at any other hotel in downtown Seattle and have a enjoyable stay. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone even someone I don't like.
