The Maxwell Hotel is an amazing value for the quality of service, the facilities, and especially the location! My boyfriend and I chose to walk and take public transportation, and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. It's a couple blocks from the Seattle Center which houses the Space Needle and the monorail, which can take you directly to downtown Seattle for $2! (I'm from SF and our BART system is not cheap). The Seattle Center also has the Experience Music Project, the Science Fiction Museum, as well as other great things to check out. The hotel is also located nearby some yummy restaurants like Pesos (go there for breakfast!) and a handful of Thai restaurants. There's a really nice grocery store a couple blocks away if you want to save some money or need to pick up some snacks and water. Bank of America ATMs are everywhere in the Queen Anne neighborhood and there are great views of Seattle nearby at Kerry Park.
The hotel is clean and the staff are very nice. The room was clean and very spacious. Big comfy bed, view of the Space Needle from the window, and a mini fridge for those leftovers. I docked a star for the room because one of our lamp's bulbs was out, but it was a small lamp and not a big deal. The shower also doesn't have a curtain, but it's also so big you don't really need one unless you're bunking with someone you're not comfortable with seeing you shower! The hotel has a artsy (jazz and ballet) theme and a pineapple motif since it's the international symbol of hospitality. Front desk staff were very helpful since it was our first time there, and they even let guests use complimentary bikes and umbrellas during your stay. They also arranged for a car to pick us up and take us to the airport at a cheaper rate than taking a taxi.
Thanks Maxwell Hotel for making our trip easy and enjoyable!
