I've stayed at the Max a lot of times, and so it was my first choice for a hotel stay this time.
I was so disapointed, as other reviewers have mentioned the standard rooms are so small they feel insulting, there's small and then there's the baby of a very small hobbit small, and at that level one just feels that one is being crammed into a box in order that the hotel can make money. I am a not tall and not wide person but had to keep my elbows in to have an all over shower. It might be possible to live with such a small room for one night but my reservation was for three nights, and therefore just having space to spread out my toiletries or make-up in the bathroom would have been nice! Also it's virtually impossible to work in such a small environment never mind move around the room with two suitcases plus carry-ons, and becomes a case (no pun intended) of either me or the suitcases. The front desk service is also not what it was, it's become my pet hate of the "boutique" hotel people in suits who are not very friendly and really not very helpful, I was given completely inaccurate information as to how long a trip to the airport might take.
The only saving grace is the restaurant whose menu has got even better (not reflected in room service, better to go and order especially if you have match box size room) and the staff there really should be running the hotel as they understand about service with a smile!
