The Maxwell Hotel - A Staypineapple Hotel
Ranked #7 of 102 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was my first stay at the Maxwell, and it far exceeded my expectations. The room was quite large and very well-maintained. The refrigerator and microwave in the room are a nice convenience when staying for several days. The location is great. It is a few blocks from the Space Needle and the Monorail (which gets you to Westlake in a couple of minutes). In case one is not feeling up to venturing far for dinner, there is an onsite Italian restaurant, and a few Thai/Chinese places nearby. The hotel also has a limited menu "espresso bar" that is open till 10:00 p.m. And it scored very high on a criteria that most hotels seem to not really get: ample and conveniently located power outlets so that you can charge misc. electronic devices (without having to unplug the lamp for example) while still having them within reach for use.

Great for business as well as leisure travel. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend the maxwell hotel. Got to the hotel to check in but room was not ready yet. When the room was finaly ready it was worth the wait, very clean room, room was bigger than i expacted. Walk in shower was a major plus and the bath room had shampoo, hand soap and lotion in its own container. Staff was very friendly and the hotel restaurant was great. The hotels a few block from the space needle. I would difinitely stay at the maxwell hotel again.

Room Tip: highly recommend a room with a view of the space needle

We stayed at the Maxwell for 3 night's as part of a one month US holiday. Out of the 15 or so hotels/motels we stayed in during our visit, this was by far the best. The artistic/funky detour gives this hotel a fresh and modern feel. The lobby is stylish and the service great. The rooms were huge featuring two king sized beds with plenty of room left over. The Maxwell offered free wifi , free coffee (coffee machine in your room), free bottled water and even free cupcakes in the lobby! The location was good with a short walk to the space needle where the monorail is situated to get you to the shops and wharf. There is also a great bar attached to the hotel that offered great food and it's own brews.

The room rate was very reasonable. Like my title states - I really can't find a single fault with this hotel and I usually like to mention positives and negatives when reviewing. I would definitely stay here again if we ever returned to Seattle.

The hotel was difficult to find - but that was due to the "big dig" going on in Seattle right now. Otherwise the location was great. Close to downtown, great supermarket just a couple of blocks away. I recommend to take a taxi from the airport if you are going there the first time. The parking space is also limited with tiny parking spots for a bigger car. Everything else was a pleasant surprise. The staff was very pleasant and efficient, rooms clean and spacious with new and comfortable furniture, good beds, quiet, refrigerator, coffee maker and whatever else you come to expect in a good hotel.

Our family found this hotel the perfect home base to explore Seattle for a long weekend before embarking on a cruise. The room was large and comfortable with very stylish decor, and we even had a view of the Space Needle. The kids enjoyed the pool. The hotel offers shuttle service, and otherwise the amenities of the Seattle Center are only a short walk away, and from there it is easy to hop on the monorail to get to the downtown area/Pike Market. Also a short walk up the hill from the hotel is Kerry Park, which offers a very scenic view of the space needle and downtown Seattle on a sunny day. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout out stay. For the niceness of the room and the excellent location, this hotel was a tremendous value, and would definitely stay here again on future trips to Seattle.

Had a great stay here, could not recommend the place more highly. Clean, fresh, new and welcoming. Nice touch with free cakes and coffee in reception. If you are going for breakfast there though go early, as it is a samll kiosk with one member of staff and it gets busy. Also, dont get excited about the pool. The photo on the website is cut off to give the perception that the pool is bigger. Its not, i would describe it as more of a plunge pool. The gym is also poorly equipped and not really worth visiting.

We like to go to theater at Seattle Repertory and this location is a little more than a block away. There is free parking and the rooms are clean, spacious and quiet. The price is also one of the best in the entire city. We have also taken our grandchildren here for a weekend and they enjoyed the pool one day. It is near the Space Needle, the monorail to downtown and all sorts of children friendly entertainment, including a great skateboard park that our two boys enjoyed for a half day.
We will be staying there several times in the next six months as we attend shows.
Note that it is at the foot of Queen Anne Hill and we head to the 5 Spot for breakfast.
Book online for the best rates and pay in advance for non refundable. There is no better rate for this quality hotel.
