Stayed two nights at The Maxwell in July (2013). The hotel is located in a great neighborhood with great restaurants close by. Hotel close to the Space Needle and walking distance to the waterfront. The hotel is clean, modern with large rooms, large bathroom (no tub, but large shower) and amenities including coffee makers, small fridge and microwave. Lobby is open and inviting. Have stayed at the waterfront many times and definitely prefer this location and the surrounding vibe. I would recommend this hotel as a central point to any location in Seattle. the hotel has a free shuttle to downtown and again walking distance to waterfront and Olympic Sculpture Park. Lobby has small cafe for takeout breakfast. Great hotel for a good value, we will be coming back to the Maxwell in the future.
