The hotel was very close to the Space Needle and Science Centre which was great. Our room was very clean and spacious and the free car park was a real bonus. In the afternoon free coffee and cup cakes were served in the lobby, a nice treat. Although we didn't use them the gym and swimming pool are great amenities. Walking to Pike Place market took about 30 minutes but there is a mono rail from the Space Needle that takes you right into the downtown core if you'd rather. You can buy breakfast at the little cafe in the lobby but there are also plenty of places to eat by the hotel. We would certainly stay at the Maxwell again when we are next in Seattle.
