This was our first stay at this wonderful boutique hotel...loved the retro/art deco vibe! We stayed in one of their Aria rooms on the 5th floor which had a view of the Space Needle. Location can't be beat...quick walk across to Seattle Center, the Space Needle, and Key Arena, as well as a short commute to Pike Place Market.
Staff are super friendly and helpful! We had reserved a room online and arrived in the early afternoon so decided to pop in to check out the hotel, and were pleasantly surprised to be offered a room right away. The front desk clerk also gave us a map of Seattle, as well as directions on how to get to Key Arena.
Amenities are fantastic...free Wi-Fi, secure parking, nice pool and exercise room, complimentary bikes, as well as coffee & cupcakes in the late afternoon. Rooms also have a large umbrella available, a real plus in Seattle!!
The room itself was delightful...loved the hardwood floors, and are extremely clean and well kept. Our king-size bed was amazing...super clean and comfortable, one of the best I've ever slept in!
Can't think of anything that could be improved upon with the possible exception of advising customers upon check-in of which food items in rooms are free and which are not, certainly not a deal breaker!
We will definitely return to Maxwell Hotel on our next trip to Seattle. Great value for your money!
