“Stylish, well situated and comfortable.”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

My wife and I stayed at The Maxwell hotel in late July while en route home to Australia.

We chose the Maxwell because of the reviews provided in Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The Maxwell was good value for money with a location on the fringe of the Seattle CBD that was easy to access, close to the Seattle Center and a pleasant 30 minute walk to the heart of the CBD.

The rooms are clean, well equipped, spacious and comfortable and overall we found the hotel stylish and functional.

Those contemplating a stay at the Maxwell should be aware that there is no in-house dining or bar however with some good restaurants and bars close by this wasn't a problem for us. We would recommend "10 Mercer" as an excellent dining option that is nearby.

Parking is a little limited and might be a problem when the Hotel is fully booked however there was ample space for our vehicle throughout our stay.

We found the staff friendly, efficient and helpful and would certainly return should we be back in Seattle in the future.

We stayed at the Maxwell before our Alaskan Cruise. We had two days in Seattle. The Maxwell is very contemporary and that was fine. It's location near the Space Needle was great to walk around the area. There was some good breakfast places and a nice bar with local beers right next door. The Queen Anne district was good to explore.
The best part, however, was that they offered courtesy bicycles. Seattle is very bike friendly. There are some hills, but almost always there are bike paths around. We were able to explore Fremont and the Ballard area and the locks so much more extensively because of the bicycles. Their bus system is wonderful also to get to these areas but the bikes made it so much better.

My husband and I are staying here now and we really like it. Great places to visit and go eat right in the neighborhood. Nice to have the parking for free! Also we lived the coffee and popcorn that was in the room. Beautiful hotel, big room!!

My wife and I booked the Maxwell for a vacation and it was a great choice. The location is quiet, but within easy walking distance of the Space Needle and the Monorail, which is a cool and short ride to downtown.

The rooms are trendy and clean with some great amenities. Our door's internal security lock somehow became loose and actually prevented us from entering the room. The manager was able to open it and moved us into a different room with views of the Space Needle. It is great to look out and enjoy the view at night.

There is also a great Thai restaurant just down the block as well as other eats nearby. I would stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors on the side with the Space Needle. Great view!

My wife and I stayed at the Maxwell July 11th-13th. We enjoyed our stay very much. We arrived early on monday checked our bags and headed over to the Space needle park to do some site seeing the hotel staff called us as soon as our room was ready, This gave us time to unpack and change for a 3:30 appointment we had. The room was very well decorated the bed comfortable. We requested a space needle view and we were given a room on the 3rd floor facing the space needle, unfortunitly due to the parking garage accross the street the space needle is the only thing you can see.The location was very convient, a short 6 minute walk and we were at the space needle $2.00 for the monorail ride and we were in the heart of down town seattle. We also rode the mono rail to downtown caught the light rail to the airport for a total of $6.00 per person.
The room was very quiet and comfortable the staff pleasent and helpful, we will stay at the Maxwell the next time we are in Seattle.

Perfect for Seattle Center exploring, clean,comfortable beds, huge lobby w chic furnishings, pool, free parking which is unheard of in Seattle(most hotels charge $40+), also free bike rentals.

I live south of city but stay here when I am n town late for shows, parties etc. I have recommended this to numerous out of town visitors who loved this place.

Note it is not right in hub of downtown but a long walk or short cab. It is however right next to the Space Needle. Right out front door in all directions are great restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and stores. The Duck tour is super close too.

We really like this place. Only quirk is showers are walk in with no shower door and rooms only average size...but u are there to explore great city of Seattle!
(Walk to.these places : cafe lladro for espresso, Crow for casual gourmet dinner, Dicks for a cheap burger, McMENNAMINS for craft brew and pub food, and Tolouse Petite for breakfast, lunch, dinner or famous huge happy hour.
