Hotel Max is located in the perfect spot, within walking distance from some very large corporate entities. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and I highly recommend Miller's Guild next door.
The hotel is very tight on space but makes up for it with some cool features. Every night in the lobby they serve free local craft beer. You can grab a seat, catch up on email and socialize a bit. The gym on the second floor is decent. There are a handful of treadmills, yoga mats, medicine balls and Dumbbells up to 50lbs. Elevators are secured (card required to go up), which keeps out unwanted loafers.
The guest rooms are really small but nicely appointed with all of the accessories including hairdryer, iron, alarm clock, tv, and plenty of power outlets. My room did not have a thermostat, so I had to toggle the window unit between hot and cold to find the right balance. It was loud, but Hotel max provides earplugs and that helped to drown out the noise from the AC.
The shower stall was comically small and I wouldn't recommend a standard room for anybody bigger than me (6' 190lbs). Anybody larger than that will have serious difficulty taking a shower.
Room was in good condition and clean. Only problem was that the electrical outlet in the bathroom didn't work.
Overall I thought Hotel Max is a very good deal at $149, surrounded by some much more expensive hotels in the same neighborhood. I would return.
