Family of 4 on vacation in the Pacific Northwest (M, D, 16yr boy, 14yr girl).
We were trying to figure out if we wanted to stay downtown, on the waterfront or at the Maxwell and were not sure if it was too far out of the way. It was in the PERFECT spot. The Maxwell is located just North of the EMP and the Space Needle and in a very pleasant neighborhood that had a cool vibe. We started our walk around Seattle from here and it was the perfect location to get to the Waterfront, then up through Pike Market, then up to downtown for some shopping. After shopping, we hopped on the Monorail to get back to the EMP and Needle and enjoyed the time there. After this, we hit a close by restaurant and then it was a quick walk back to the hotel.
Great price, 2 queen beds, spacious room, great location, great perk ($20 coffee shop, 4 one way monorail tickets). Got a passcode to stay at a discount in the future. Great experience and my wife and my kids were very pleased with my choice to stay at the "Pineapple".
Note cost from airport in a Town Car was $50. From Maxwell to airport was $42.
