Reviewed August 26, 2013

I spent a night at this hotel being in transit through Seattle. The service was very good, and there was complimentary coffee and muffins in the lobby, which was a nice touch. The room was spacious enough, with facilities to make coffee, tea etc..and microwave popcorn, again all complimentary. The was free wifi and the bathroom and room was very clean, modern and recently refurbished. Location was walking distance to the Space Needle, but a bit far (and a $10 taxi ride) to the Market. Price was reasonable, overall a very acceptable stay.

Good location, professional staff, nice rooms, free parking, not really for families IMO. It seemed a bit on the pricey side though ... might just be a Seattle in the summer thing though. Not really for small kids. No tub.

We stayed at The Maxwell Hotel for six nights in July, in town for a family wedding. The area felt safe and was humming with activity. We were within blocks of the Seattle Center and only once had trouble getting a cab (because so much was going on in the city ... ) We had an awesome ever-changing view of downtown and the Space Needle, as evidenced by my photos. Our room was nicely appointed and clean, and the staff were friendly. We took advantage of the in-house pizza restaurant twice (great!) and also visited "Pineapple Espresso" almost every day for coffee and a treat. The complimentary coffee and pineapple cupcakes put out each afternoon were a nice touch. My only VERY MINOR negative comment is that I would have chosen different art for the room (not a big fan of circus/clown posters). However, we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Space Needle!

The hotel was very nice, and the area where it's located is beautiful , the staff is very friendly. They offer a shuttle service and the driver was very friendly too. The cupcakes in the lobby are delicious, we couldn't stop grabbing one everytime we walked through the lobby. Yumm! The only downside was the noise in the room, we had a room in the third floor, but we still could hear the humming sound ( with the windows closed) from the huge fans ( aircondition maybe?) on the back of the hotel and it was very disturbing, we hardly fell asleep.

Hello Hanna289! We are so very pleased that you enjoyed the hotel, the location, and the friendly staff. I'm sorry to hear that you had trouble sleeping with the fans outside. We do provide ear plugs for those that are sensitive the the white noise and I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. All my best, Woody Braden - Hotel Manager

I found this hotel in the Fodor's Guide to Seattle and on Tripadvisor and it seemed to be better than one of the chains in the Queen Anne district. The location was what I wanted so we could park the car (free) and walk everywhere for three days. However, we were blown away by the classy decor, well-appointed rooms, and friendly helpful staff. The Pineapple Express group has a free shuttle that will drop you off around town and bring you back which is a huge bonus. Ask the staff where to have breakfast, lunch and dinner (all within three to four blocks) and you will not be disappointed.

The Maxwell hosted our entire family of 27 members, from 4 different states, before our Alaskan cruise. We chose this hotel, mainly due to the hotel shuttle, to accommodate our senior parents. What a pleasant surprise this hotel was. So many little perks; free bicycles to use, umbrellas in each room, coffee makers, refrigerators, microwaves, free bottled water and the pineapple cupcakes in the afternoon. The lobby is spacious and great for socializing or just relaxing. There is an indoor pool! The staff was very helpful and friendly. We booked on Priceline and got a great deal! The rooms are modern and spacious, with wood floors, and the showers are huge! The location is great! We will definitely return and recommend this gem to other family and friends!!!!!

Room Tip: The disability rooms are even more spacious!

This hotel has a lot going for it. The decor is very funky and well done. It is environmentally friendly in many ways. At first I thought that I would not like the shampoo, soap dispensers on the wall but it actually makes a lot of sense and worked out fine. The location is terrific. Close to the Seattle Center and Space Needle. The hotel is very clean. The staff are helpful, too. The cupcakes in the afternoon are absolutely delicious!!! The only negative was the view from our room that was of a rundown house!

Hello albusthecat and thank you for the wonderful review! I'm very happy that you loved the hotel and enjoyed your stay. The neighborhood is actually a very good one but the apartment complex behind us could definitely use some work. We apologize for the view! Come back and see us soon and get one of our Space Needle view rooms.
