New to Seattle, we were pleasantly surprised : hotel is at foot of Queen Anne hill , lots of neighborhood restaurants, walking distance to Space Needle & Seattle Center ( & wonderful Chihuly Museum ) & monorail. Our room was large & well appointed, staff is friendly & helpful . Good value.

Stayed here with our kids on vacation in August. We were upgraded when we checked in and the room was very large - two queens and a sleeper sofa. The little cupcakes and coffee in the lobby in the afternoon were great. We stayed here at the end of trip so we really appreciated the lack of extra charges - the parking is free, the water in the room is free, there is free popcorn and a microwave in the room, free bikes and free wifi. The kids liked the pool. The location was great for the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden - not very close to dowtown but they have a free shuttle service. The place they recommended for breakfast (Citizen Coffee) was great and exactly what we wanted. I liked that it was in a neighborhood.

Only negative comments - the A/C is loud and shuts off intermittently during the night and the bathroom could use better lighting

We stayed 2 nights at the Maxwell House while in Seattle for a family vacation. We loved the colorful, spacious room. The beds were comfortable as was the seating area. We enjoyed having a DVD player as well as free water, popcorn, tea, and coffee. The microwave and fridge were great features as well, although our fridge froze everything. My two cons were the open shower concept and the laminate wood flooring. While both were aesthetically pleasing, the shower set up created a cold shower experience. Part of that is the airiness and the other part is the too high/oddly angled shower head. As for the laminate flooring, people are more prone to leave their shoes on as our upstairs neighbors were- which created a very noisy night. The hotel overall is a fun, unique experience. It has a great location by the Seattle Center, monorail, and a market. We also enjoyed the afternoon coffee and delicious mini pineapple cupcakes.

The coffee and cupcakes at 3pm are great, right? I love this. Thank you for the lovely review and for staying with us. We truly appreciate your feedback on the shower and the bathroom lighting. There are two lights in the bathroom and I think that most people see only one. Please definitely ask for assistance next time and we'll show you how to make it nice and bright.

Very nice hotel. In a great location near the space needle. Free parking is a plus. The room was clean and comfortable. Free water and yummy cupcakes every night. Front desk was very friendly. They also have a free shuttle bus to take you to different locations in the city.

My daughter and I spent several days in Seattle at The Maxwell, and were completed delighted. It is a short block's walk to the Seattle Center, but a little farther away from most of the other attractions. Not a problem, though -- they provide free shuttle service to Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well-appointed (there were even umbrellas in the closet!). We got takeout from the onsite resaurant on two occasions, and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The pineapple cupcakes were also a nice treat! All in all, I would definitely recommend The Maxwell.

Great staff, always willing to be at your service. Free bikes to ride down to Pikes Place Market or where ever you want. The bed was comfortable however, it did not have the luxury bedding like a Westin or Marriott. Very clean and spacious room. Would stay here again.
