“Convenience with style.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Maxwell Hotel. The rooms were nicely appointed and were very comfortable. My only complaint was with the laminate floors. We had some very busy roommates on the floor above us one night. The hotel relocated us to another room the following day and we had no further issues with noise. If your a light sleeper ask for an upper floor.

My wife and I stayed Memorial weekend at the Maxwell Hotel for four nights while the nearby Seattle Center was having a huge event, the Northwest Folklife Festival. We thought the location was perfect. We were close enough to explore the event and the major attractions there at the Center (Space Needle, Pacific Science Center, EMP musuem and our favorite, the Chihuly Garden and Glass) but it didn't seem too hectic or crowded around the hotel. We walked the area extensively and had our choice of many outstanding restaurants, all that had really great Happy Hours. The room we got was clean, quiet and had great beds, the staff was friendly and helpful, and yes the daily free cupcakes were a nice treat. If I had one complaint it was only that the view from our room was not very pleasant, some sort of broken down house on the street behind us...but I can live that since we were out most of the time. Overall a very pleasant experience, I would stay there again without hesitation.

I love this hotel. The service is nice and the facilities are good. Although it's not close to the convention center, you can make appointment for getting there. The location is good in Seattle. It's not too far to go to supermarkets. The microwave oven in the room is very convienet for guests if you like to cook by yourself. I like the service and people here. At 3:00 pm, there is free afternoon tee at the lobby. You can drink coffee and snacks there for free. The spce needle is just cross to the road and not to far by walk. It is a very nice hotel for guests to saty. I will visit this hotel again if I go to USA for medical conference.

Room Tip: I think the rooms are all good for guests to stay.

Nice hotel with free parking and free wi-fi and free water and popcorn! Microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms were very convenient. The rooms were very large and nicely decorated. Since we went to Labor Day weekend, the prices were not discounted.

This hotel is way beyond any we have staid in. Everything is clean and like new. Great beds and lots of room. Restaurant in the hotel serves wood fired oven pizza and other good food. Very close to the space needle.

Room Tip: No breakfast to speak of, but cupcakes upon arrival.

The hotel was strategically located in a spot close to the Seattle Center area but not too close enough that the traffic will bother guests. It is an easy walking distance to these tourist spots. There are a few restaurants close to the hotel that you can easily access and a 24 hour QFC for quick grocery needs. Our room had a microwave and fridge which was really useful. I asked for microwavable plates and they were willing to send these up for me.

I marked kid stuff three stars because while they had a pool, it was too deep for our son to enjoy thoroughly. I also thought that while they had bikes to rent, what could seal the deal was having a small burley or bike attachment to it so that a child can also enjoy the bike ride.

Security wise, I think the key card access to the elevator is good and keeps me safe. I love this hotel and the staff was really nice.

Great ideas on the bikes! I really like the idea. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay and I'm sorry for the depth of the pool. It is 3 1/2 feet shallow and 4 feet at the deepest and safety is our utmost concern. We hope to see you soon!

Stayed at the Maxwell for five nights. Two blocks from Seattle Center, (Space Needle, amazing Chihuly Glass Museum, Seattle Opera and Ballet and the EMP......) Hotel had a trendy fun vibe, generous sized rooms for a city hotel, very clean and free parking. Service was good, desk staff friendly and helpful. Lots of great restaurants in the area. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Seattle.
