“Nice hotel and great area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

A nice modern hotel. Room was quirky and clean. Cupcakes and coffee in the foyer was a really nice touch. My only gripe was that the staff, while friendly, tended to be reactive rather than proactive in providing useful information (we had to ask about basics such as local transport, shops, etc.). Shuttle was handy but quite often booked out especially first thing in the morning.

Really loved the location. Such a nice area just outside of town. Full of cafes, pubs and restaurants. Excellent 24 hour supermarket/providores and pharmacy just up the hill. A lot more happening than downtown after hours.

Would definitely stay there again if ever we return to Seattle.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

My company booked this hotel for me and I was expecting a fairly soul-less experience. I was very mistaken. It's very friendly, the rooms are huge and well appointed, there's a good pizza place right next door and it's a matter of a few minutes' walk to the Space Needle.

Nice little touches like coffee and cupcakes in reception were very welcome after walks in Seattle rain too!

What can I say: great price, big clean room, free wifi, free parking, and good area. All the things that I want in a hotel and this was my second stay. There also some great restaurants nearby and an awesome piano bar. I will definitely be back soon.

Everything here was great. Clean, newly finished rooms, free secure parking (though tight), nice lobby and helpful staff. If you have kids, note that the pool is a little small, and there's no hot tub. But all in all, we'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We requested a top floor room, which was very quiet.

We stayed here for 4 nights and will absolutely return on our next trip to Seattle. After an extensive search, we booked the Maxwell hotel based on reviews seen on Trip Advisor, and it did not disappoint. The room was large(2 double beds), and very clean. Like the wooden floor, since we have 2 kids with allergies. Location is not too busy but very close with easy access to everything. Free parking garage was a great bonus.
There was a little road noise from the street below since I was on the second floor facing the main street but didn't bother us much, we all slept comfortably. I don't typically like to use the hotel amenities but I really did like the products provided. Great grocery market within walking distance,the Metropolitan Market, very convenient since we like to stock up for our late night snacks.
An overall great experience. Don't miss Ride the Ducks tour and the Teatro ZinZanni very near the hotel. We will definitely return to the Maxwell next time we're in Seattle.

Great rooms, great staff, great food and booze. The Maxwell is a hotel I'd be happy to return too, anytime. Such a great neighbourhood,surrounded by bars, restaurants and grocery stores. Book it now, you won't get a better option.

We had seen an ad in the Alaska Airlines magazine for this hotel and decided to give it a try.
And we were so glad we did. The location is close to the Seattle Center, they have free parking for cars, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We will stay there again on our next trip.
