“Trendy but lacks substance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Clearly focused on being more cool than practical, Hotel Max was stylish and well located, but fell short in terms of room size, slow internet, late breakfast (8am start), dark rooms and very little storage space. Fine for a short stay, but wouldn't recommend if you need something more substantial.

Stayed May 2015

Staff were good but room was not. Room had view on main street which resulted in traffic noise all night causing an interrupted sleep. Room window covering are roller blinds which do not block out all exterior light. Night light and morning light filtered into the room from sides of roller blinds adding to the sleep disruption. The room had a bathroom which required a climb up one stair to enter and exit it. Hard to navigate when not totally awake. The Hotel is centrally located in the heart of Seattle's downtown. Easy walk to Pike's market and the Space Needle. Good location. Unfortunate that we did not have a good night sleep.

We booked online and had an excellent and fun stay. Great Sub Pop Records hip decor - an iconic Seattle record label. It was very clean too even though they were renovating - not a bit inconvenienced. It's really well run...and you don't even notice - there's a feeling of privacy in a great downtown location. We walked to the warf and shopped around on our way there and back every day. we were in paradise. We will return to Seattle - now our favorite US city - and defintely book at Hotel Max.

Room Tip: Check out the 5th floor - and sleep with the band ;)

Hotel Max is just what a nice hotel needs to be. The location is excellent ( Just 10 mins walk from Pike Place), Nice cozy rooms with great views and an uber friendly staff, Good breakfast, Free drinks between 5-7 pm every evening and all of this at a very competitive price.

Be it travelling with family, friends or business, this hotel will cater to each one's needs. Will definitely go back when I go to Seattle again.

Great service and uniquely styled boutique hotel. Good proximity to many of Seattle's attractions are within walking distance. Free surprise microbrew afternoons; fresh brewed coffee mornings! Super comfy beds!

We stayed two nights and they were absolutely wonderful. The location was central to most of your attractions like Pike's Place, Space Needle, and the metrol link.
The room was small but very cozy and modern. At night we could hear the city bustling but it was soothing and peaceful.
Music in the lobby was very alternative Seattle which was perfect. Clean, comfortable, and worth every penny.

God boutique hotel, in a good location at a good price. Booked through a third party site that did not sync with hotel's records but staff handled it in calm and reassuring manner. Really enjoyed the atmosphere in the lounge during the free beer hour, great way to get guests mingling.
