The Maxwell Hotel - A Staypineapple Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 14, 2013

My only quibbles were the creaky upstairs-neighbor noise, and the fact that the wi-fi I'd been counting on did not work once during my stay. (They promise they are replacing the server, so this should soon be a non-issue).
Apart from that, it's very comfortable and stylish, and your room feels like a suite thanks to a carefully-placed wall: you don't see the bed the instant you walk in. The bathroom has tons of counter space, no steam issues, and the towels were somehow the best hotel towels I've ever used. The toiletry dispensers were mounted on the wall, so no little bottles to take home -- but I guess it's greener that way, so okay.
When I checked in, they asked if I had any dog allergies [no], but if they did in fact give me a pet room, I sensed zero evidence of it. Very clean.
The neighborhood is great, and free parking is worth its weight in gold there, so I highly recommend the place. (Park at either the entrance or very-end of the garage for closest hotel access.)

Room Tip: If you make just one request: top-floor. My upstairs neighbor's comings and goings made me need...

I completely agree with the previous glowing reviews: We did the 3rd night free rate, and were kindly given a free upgrade to a larger room with a sitting area facing the Space Needle. Clean, quiet, free parking, cupcakes, comfy beds....Many hotels nearby were practically hugging the highway, so we were very happy to have the quiet, yet still being so close to Seattle Center and some great restaurants.

Would definitely stay here again!

Laylaymowm,

We’re a fan of YOU! Thank you for taking a few moments to comment on your recent stay at The Maxwell Hotel. I appreciate you mentioning that our hotel is set a bit further back from the busy roads. This information is helpful for future guests questioning how quiet their stay may be.

We hope that the next time your travels bring you to Seattle, you stop in and stay with us a while.

Cheers,

Booked the Maxwell based on reviews on this site and am glad I did. Good points were as other reviewers have said: attractive rooms with nice little details, quiet, comfortable, good location with lots of nearby options for food, drink and groceries, pleasant staff, free parking and wi-fi etc. No complaints although a bar/restaurant offering breakfast would be good. We usually stay in the middle of downtown but would definitely stay here again. It is not ritzy and it does involve a bit more walking but it is a bustling, residential neighborhood which made a nice change from the more touristy/business core.

Room Tip: Our room at the back of the building was very quiet (no view of the Space Needle).

My husband and I stayed at the Maxwell for a weekend over the Christmas holidays and had a lovely time. Our room was stylish and fun, and very comfortable.
We had a tasty pizza in the hotel bar, and the beer sampler was fun.
The mini fridge allowed us to keep our own milk for our breakfast cereal, since we prefer making our own breakfast to hotel breakfast. A highlight of our trip was discovering the Metropolitan Market several blocks away, which was like Whole Foods but more affordable. The location of the hotel was generally fantastic, it was a ten minute walk to the space needle, and a half hour walk to the pike place market.
Some downsides were: the wifi was not accessible to iphones or iPads, the room heater was very loud, and there was no bathtub.

Mary M,

Thank you for this great review! We’re really happy that you and your husband enjoyed yourselves. The Metropolitan Market is a fantastic addition to the Queen Anne neighborhood; we’re glad that you found them.

We’re sorry to read that you experienced an issue with the Apple iOS not working on our network. Our IT team has been out to the hotel and revamped our entire network. We’re happy to relay that between the recent Apple iOS update mixed with our new equipment, our WiFi is working as advertised!

We’d love to welcome you back to the hotel the next time you are in Seattle. Should you make a future reservation, please mention your desire for a bath tub as we do have a few rooms in the hotel that have a tub.

Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again soon.

Cheers,
Tyler

My partner and I stayed in The Maxwell this past weekend to attend a seminar at the Seattle Center. It was an opportunity to explore a part of the city that neither of us had really done before.
If you are looking for a clean, decent and well above average hotel just outside the heart of the city, then this is it!
A five minute taxi ride to Pike Place Market (ok maybe a THREE minute taxi ride), in the Queen Anne district of Seattle, this little gem was perfect for an urban experience.
We could walk to Seattle Center and pretty much any type of restaurant you can possibly think of.
In spite of not having room service, there is an array of restaurant menus at the front desk that will deliver to your room.
There is a fun pizza and burger joint in the hotel and a small coffee bar if you like, which are both decent options, but if you want a really solid breakfast and excellent coffee, CITIZEN is a five minute walk down the street.
Our room was so clean, I couldn't help but wonder if it was brand new and never been slept in. The linens were crisp, the bed was cozy and the towels were so plush, they must have been brand new.
Being a collector of hotel bath products, I was a little disappointed when I discovered that the available products were dispensers bolted into the walls, but thought that was a very "environmentally friendly" way of distributing very nice Tommy Bahama products.
The decor is quite modern and tidy and overall tied in with having an urban experience of Seattle.
We didnt get a chance to use the pool and gym facilities but I did poke my head in to check it out. Nothing overall exciting about it, but definitely ticks the box in the way of cleanliness and good selection of equipment.
I would definitely pick this place again to stay in for future adventures in the city, just outside of the action.

Kelly S,

This is a fabulous review! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed account of The Maxwell Hotel from your recent stay.

While I assure you the room you stayed in is in fact 3 years old, we do make it a point to keep it as pristine as the day we opened our doors! Thank you for noticing.

As a hotel bath amenity collector myself, I can understand your disappointment in not being able to bring home our outstanding Tommy Bahamas collection. However, I really appreciate that you recognize the environmental impact we make by not disposing of countless little plastic bottles each year. Should you stay with us again in the future, let us know and we may be able to get a couple sample sizes of the amenities for you! That can be our little secret. Well us and anyone else reading this!

We hope to see you again soon!

Your friend in hospitality,
Tyler

This was a charming hotel right adjacent to Seattle Center. We walked about 1.5 miles to downtown, first walking through the magical Seattle Center, and it was an easy walk. The hotel was charming, spacious, with great attention to detail. Loved the decor and the staff. Needed a recommendation for lunch, and were delighted with the choice. Thanks!

This is a great hotel, great location. It does have a restauraunt ! The Rock" right off the lobby. But who needs it... there are fantastic restaurants all around it including La Petit Taulouse (BEST FOOD EVER) and McMinnamin's for craft brew. Too bad Phil C didn't check it out. Walk to a great grocery store (to buy your own breakfast for the room etc), the space needle and glass gardens. They take pets and have a wonderful lobby and pool and bikes!. Interior dacor is very upbeat and happy. They have coffee makers, microwaves, fridge, umbrellas & irons all in the room. Stayed many times for many reasons. Great staff who will Google anything for you. Wish they had a jacuzzi but oh well.
