We picked the Maxwell based on Tripadvisor input and its immediate propinquity to the Seattle opera house. It is more expensive than our traditional hotel for opera trips (the Mediterranean Inn down on Queen Anne) but were attracted by the positive chorus of reviews.
I can't do more than confirm the very consistent pattern of other reviews. This is a sparklingly clean modern boutique hotel. Rooms are very tastefully put together and spotless. I roamed the room desperate to find at least one little thing wrong somewhere, and had to settle on a tiny spot on one bathroom wall. Seriously, someone has worked very hard to give to rooms and the hotel a coherent and attractive style, right down to the water glasses. Free coffee, morning newspaper and WiFi are provided.
There are good to OK restaurants all around within walking distance (the Toulouse Petit Kitchen is a must). Downtown is quickly accessible by bus or monorail and for the adventurous is walkable.
