"A Perfectly Balanced Hotel!"
I have stayed at The Maxwell a few times now. It has become one of my favorite hotels to stay at when I am in Seattle. It is clean, comfy bed, hip, not too far from downtown and most importantly, dog friendly! My favorite restaurant, The Bamboo Garden is a couple of doors down. Parking is easy. Staff is friendly. Nice little workout room. Refrig and […] microwave in the room. A fair price for all that they offer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great time In Seattle"
Seattle is a city with a lot to do. Fortunately, The Maxwell Hotel is right in the middle of it all. The room was clean, the staff were all very friendly and helpful and the hotel was within walking distance of all the fun you could possibly have in Seattle. I highly recommend the hotel to anyone. 5 out of 5!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We'll be back"
Great accommodations, outstanding location, friendly staff, super amenities, all at a good price. My wife said it is her new favorite hotel in Seattle. We hope to go back soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Night at the Opera"
This hotel was one short block from where the Seattle Opera performs, and it was perfect for that event.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel close to many places"
King bed room. Room was comfortable and clean. Mini refrigerator and microwave were great to have for leftovers and snacks. Keurig with K-Cups a nice touch as was the microwave popcorn. Bathroom was nice. Service was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
My family and I really enjoyed our stay, but we didn't realise how small the pool was "we have kids" and the walls are very thin, so you can hear everything from the room above and around us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful and convient"
Check in was lateGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stayed one night for an event at the Key Arena."
My friends and I stayed on a Friday night for an even at the Key Arena. The hotel was clean and in a great location. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Mostly great. The hours of the espresso cart were odd. Also, it was uncertain that the bottles of water in our room were not complimentary, while the coffee pods were complimentary. We were charged for the water to make the coffee, which was a big surprise when I got the bill. If we were going to be charged, it should have been explained more clear […] ly.

"Fun and funky, but with conventional comfort"
The Maxwell is one of those "new style" hotels that wears its nonconformity on its sleeve - vibrant color, breakfast/coffee in a kiosk, wall-mounted dispensers instead of soaps and shampoo bottles, etc. At its heart, however, are very comfortable and surprisingly quiet rooms. The immediate vicinity is initially disappointing, but only a few blocks' […] walk reveals lots of amenities and activities. Plus, the parking under the hotel provides those with cars great convenience, and it's a snap to get to other parts of Seattle's bustling downtown. Clean, friendly, comfortable, convenient.

"Good 'Base of Operations'"
Right next door to the Seattle Center, this place makes a good spot to crash for a night if you want to go see a show.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was unsure about this hotel before arrival and was so happy afterwards, that I plan on making this "my" hotel in Seattle always! The room decor is beautiful and stylish, they had fresh cream in the refrigerator for the Koenig coffee, they were environmentally friendly in shampoos and soaps, the bed was comfy with pillows aplenty. The staff was friendly […] and energetic. I really enjoyed myself and can't wait to return next year! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loving the new decor"
Funky and sweet. Beds were a little hard for my back but I loved the rock pizza inside the building. A short walk to the science center and music project. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best place in seattle"
This is a wonderful hotel. It's in the perfect place close to space needle and mccaw hall. Will definitely recommend to friends and stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A fabulous neighorbood hotel"
What a great place. We were there for New Year's Eve, which could be good or not so. They were terrific, well staffed, and everything was in order. If this hotel is as good when not a major event, it's should be applauded. Just a great stay and experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Maxwell Hotel is fantastic"
Everything from check-in to check-out was wonderful! The property was so nice and was the perfect location. The only thing I would not recommend is The Rock restaurant attached to the property. The kids liked their kid pizzas, but the adult pizza left something to be desired. And the mixologist wasn't very good. Would recommend walking a block to find […] great food and drink.

"Everything we needed for our Queen Anne Visit"
The staff were friendly and very helpful. Their help was sensitive to our needs. I loved the shower and bathroom facilities. We both slept very well, not always possible on a holiday trip. We especially appreciated the hotel's proximity to Seattle Center, the ice skating rink, and delightful train and decorations in the center.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our trip very much. The staff members were excellent. The only negatives were that the Pineapple Express was consistently out of many of the breakfast items and the food at the "Rock" was not very good but they were probably under different management. Thanks for a fine stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great boutique hotel near Seattle Center"
What a nice place to stay - clean, comfortable, priced right and near so much. Great staff always willing to advise on places to eat, how to get where you want to go, etc. Bikes that are freely available for those sunny Seattle days. One of the best stays I have had in recent memory.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Only problem was that the water in the shower shifted from hot to cold and back without warning. Over all we enjoyed our stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Maxwell hotel made our visit wonderful."
We stayed at the Maxwell Hotel December 23-28 to visit my granddaughter after her bone marrow transplant. This hotel was fabulous- the rooms were artfully decorated, kept immaculate and the staff was very considerate. The beds were very comfortable and we did not hear a sound. When we go back to Seattle we will always stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Seattle Center and the Sound"
This friendly, comfortable hotel located near the Seattle Center and the Key Arena was the perfect location to stay while we attended the NCAA National Women's Volleyball finals. We enjoyed coffee and pineapple cupcakes each day before attending the games and a beverage in the bar afterwards.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice and affordable hotel"
I was pleasantly surprised by the Maxwell Hotel. On my arrival the Front desk staff greeted me with a huge smile, like a repeating guest, even it was my first time in Seattle. The design of the hotel, lobby, the room and in general is nice and gives you a cozy feeling. The amenities are great, specially the free parking; I understand this is important […] in Seattle. I also like the nice gesture to put some free coffee and baked goods in the lobby, for the guests. The room has everything to be expected and was very clean with coffee maker, complementary water bottles. The bathroom is big with a nice layout. I will and have already recommend the Maxwell Hotel.

"Nice, fun place to stay, close to ballet..."
We chose this hotel due to its location 1 block from the ballet. It did not disappoint, other than the parking. They do not have adequate parking for their guests in their "free" parking and if you have a larger vehicle, forget about parking there. There is a parking garage between there and the theater, but that was an additional $15. Just something […] to be aware of. The rest of our stay was very nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
very good, only complaint was slow wireless serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location and customer service"
We could not have asked for a better hotel and location. The shuttle service to the Pike Street Market was awesome. The staff was awesome. Will definitely try to stay at The Maxwell next time we go to Seattle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"location, location, location!"
The hotel is beautiful with staff to match. The shuttle to downtown shopping made my Christmas Eve Day the best day of my year! They also have free and convenient parking at the facility. THE ROCK (their restaurant) has great, great food and very polite, mindful staff. The room has complimentary goodies like coffee, water, popcorn; and a microwave and […] refrigerator. Wow, the best location! It's downtown but off the beaten path enough to prevent the more unpleasant aspects of city living. Good security system. You can enjoy the Queen Anne lights and the Space Needle right from your window. You need to stay here if you come to Seattle! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"HOLIDAYS WELL SPENT!!!"
It was AWESOME!! WE can not think of anything that they could do better! My Fiance and I stayed here from Dec 18-23rd and we had a wonderful and exceptional stay! Our room was always spotless whenever we came back from a day trip, and the free coffee in our room was such a delight! The staff we're always helpful as well. The mini cupcakes were such […] a delicious treat too! We definitely suggest it to anyone looking for a stay in Seattle! It's close to the Space Needle, EMP, Seattle Science Center, and had a shuttle available to take you to the sites in downtown Seattle. It was such a wonderful HOLIDAY stay!!! :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything was just right!!!"
Was at The Maxwell in Dec 13. Right in the middle of the Holiday season. From the moment you walk in, you know that this place is a step above the regular chain hotels. The location is perfect. All within walking distance to Key arena, Space Needle, EMP, etc etc. The Room was really nice and the beds are soft. Parking wasn't issue (underground parking)....Great […] Customer Service Also......We will be back!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel with lots to do nearby!"
This was a very nice and clean hotel. The staff were exceptional and friendly. The hotel is within walking distance of the Space Needle, the Seattle Center, Key Arena, the Monorail and lots of restaurants. The restaurant in the hotel, The Rock, is awesome!Genuine Expedia guest review
"My new favorite hotel in Seattle!"
We absolutely loved our stay at The Maxwell. The staff was very helpful. We arrived earlier than expected in Seattle and went by the hotel on a chance we could check in as early as 11 am and we could! We loved the hospitality and assistance. The room was beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable beds and there was even real creamer in the refrigerator […] for the in-room Keurig! The hotel is located near Seattle Center so attending the Nutcracker was very convenient. We also ventured downtown and since the Monorail is within walking distance that trip was easy and fun.

"Very VERY Excellent Hotel, Prices, and Location"
Very VERY Excellent Hotel, Prices, and Location; close to the Space Needle, Pubs & Bars, grocery stores, drug stores, and Excellent "in house" Restuarante called Rock. I highly recommend this hotel & all of it's amenities, and rooms!!! Furniture is very "cutting edge" modern . The Lobby gives of a New York 5- Star feeling of granduer!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was GREAT! We thought the pool was bigger and it had a hot tub but we would definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"one of the highlights of our getaway week-end"
We had a lovely stay -- funky decor, helpful service and convenient location all contributed to our promise to do it again next year!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was great love everything!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed on the 2nd floor and the room above us was busy.. with the hard wood floors the room was noisy at all times of the day.. even very early morning hours such as 2 or 3 am. The room might have been an employee room because it was really busy...Other than that, we loved the rooms, the location and everything else. We will probably stay there again. […] But just a note to those of you reading this review... ask for a room higher than the 2nd or 3rd floors. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The "outstanding" rating is quite an overstatement"
The primary reason I booked this hotel over the hotels closer to Key Arena was because it's advertisement boasted a shuttle service. Only when I got there did they inform me that they don't offer shuttle service in the evening - which was quite an inconvenience. The room was nice and clean, but apparently we were situated under the maintenance room […] because there was incessant banging all night/morning. To boot, their curtains are merely for decoration and don't actually close - so early in the morning, light comes streaming through. Needless to say, we had to walk to our destinations and then didn't get any sleep. By the time we left the hotel, we were exhausted. We also utilized The Rock restaurant located inside the hotel, thinking it would be a quick dinner solution. False. We arrived at 7pm and it still took us almost an hour to get seated. When we finally got our food, our burger was completely raw...as in BLEEDING raw. We had to send it back. By the time we left, we were already 40 minutes late for a show and still had to walk to the venue. I would not stay here again. It looked nice but what good is a hotel you can't any sleep in?!

We had an excellent time from the moment we walked into the hotel. Excellent, friendly staff, very new and clean hotel, large rooms with all the amenities. Great restaurant on site. Very close to the Seattle Center. This was a family getaway to the Seattle Children's Theater, and we will be staying here every time we come to town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Strong chemical cleaner odor in room, no blanket between sheets and permanent bed spread, flashing light smoke alarm directly over the bed..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pearl Jam Trip"
Needed a hotel by Key Arena for the concert. I lived in Seattle years ago so a friend picked me up at the airport. Getting to the Hotel was easy for us but could have been a little tricky because of the one ways. The FREE parking garage was great (keep this in mind when looking at hotel rates - $15-45 a day to park at other loc). Did not have any issues […] with finding a parking space. The check in process was fast and professional. The lobby area is nice and has pletty of sitting areas to relax in. The room was nice. It did not have carpet! The bathroom was large and had dispensers for the products instead of little bottels. The room had a nice flat screen TV, a refrig, microwave, coffee maker with bottel water and coffee, and popcorn. No up charge for any of this! The hotel restaurant, The Rock, was great. Staff was friendly, the pizza for a wood burning oven was great, the bar area was fun. Santa pub crawl visited us one night. The location is prime to walk to the Key Arena. Two long blocks and boom, your in the Key. The area can get a little sketchy at night, but it was really cold so no issues. A lot of "uptown" style restaurants and bars all over the place within a short walk and Dicks Drive - In. The monorail is within blocks of the hotel and this will take you into downtown Seattle for a couple of dollars each way. If you fly in, you can take light rail from the airport, to the monorail, to the hotel for about $10. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The Maxwell in Queen Anne"
Very cute hotel....loved the decor....had this full length mirror that was a "skinny mirror" :) ....staff we encountered was great. Had a 2 queen room...had a big bathroom (the soaps they provide are in this cool dispensers), mini fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, beds were decent, and none of the typical Seattle old moldy smell....want to go […] back! Really close to Key Arena and the Seattle Ballet...totally walkable.......parking was not an issue....it's a private garage, first come first serve, but there seemed to be plenty of spaces....we got there a little after 4 (check in time) ....staff told us that as the night goes on the spaces fill up faster....we went to the bar/restaurant downstairs and was told there was a 50-60 minute wait (Pearl Jam and Nutcracker in same night)....we ended up waiting 1 hour and 45 min...and were pretty sure they were seating people ahead of us that shouldn't have been, even though they gave us a pager thingy....oh, well....the food was good and came fast when we were finally seated.

"After concert stay"
The Maxwell Hotel was a great place to stay after the Pearl Jam concert at Key Arena. A 5 minute walk beat the traffic and one hour drive we would've been in for. The hotel was very nice, I love the bright, colorful modern decor. The room was big and cozy. The only negative was the bed, it was squishy soft. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and […] we even enjoyed a meal at The Rock located just off the lobby. I would stay again or recommend to out of town visitors. The neighborhood was surprisingly quiet. There were tons of great restaurants within walking distance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We love this The Maxwell"
This is our second stay at The Maxwell and we enjoyed it even more than the previous one. We got there early and they checked us in early, that was wonderful so we didn't have to worry about parking. The front desk is very friendly and helpful, asking if we need directions or suggestions. The rooms are just amazing. We will stay there again for sur […] e. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love The Maxwell - Perfect Hotel!"
This was our second trip to Seattle and our first time at the Maxwell. We had previously stayed at The Fairmont Olympic. When we arrived it seemed like the area was commercial and I could see my husband and daughter were unhappy. But the hotel was new, pretty and cheerful and the front desk staff were helpful, friendly and capable. Once we got outside […] and realized we were a block from Seattle Center, the family's attitude improved. I had chosen the hotel because it had a shuttle, free wifi (for my daughter- I was annoyed at The Fairmont Olympic's $15/day fee), bikes, and is dog friendly - although we didn't bring our dog this time we will the next. I also wanted to explore some different neighborhoods. Everything worked out beautifully. We had fun riding the bikes around - lots of compliments from people on how cute they were. We took the shuttle every day, and the drivers gave us some local history. One of the drivers recommended LePichet cafe and we loved it. The other driver recommended Grand Central bakery for breakfast, which was perfect. (I suppose it's easy to recommend wonderful restaurants in Seattle!) We were very happy with The Maxwell. The staff were excellent, the room was comfortable, clean and stayed clean. There are no little toiletries - fine with me. We did not try the hotel restaurant so I can't review it. The only disappointment was the weight machine was broken. The little cupcakes and coffee in the afternoon were a nice refreshment! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very kind and accommodating. The room was comfortable and had fun decorations. Good location, close to the space needle. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved the fun & colorful decor and the pineapple theme. All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We were greeted every time we walked in and everyone was friendly to my two teen boys as well. I was amazed that the hotel had a free shuttle that drove us to Pike Place Market AND picked us up! The shuttle driver was great - friendly and […] talkative (in a good way!). The location is also easy walking distance to Seattle Center, a public bus stop (we took the bus once), the monorail station, and other attractions. The rooms were large, colorful, clean, and had lots of little thoughtful touches. There is a Keurig coffee maker and half & half in the fridge. They left two water bottles for us each day. They also left microwave popcorn each day. There is a QFC grocery store 2 blocks away so we bought some snacks there to eat in the room. We all liked the Tommy Bahama soap, lotion, & body wash that are on dispensers on the wall in the shower and bathroom vanity area. The pool and fitness room were small but decorated in a really fun, colorful way. When we went to the pool there were only 3 other people using it. I thought it might feel crowded because the pool is so small, but we had a great time. Good towels at the pool and in the room. Even though I was traveling by myself with two kids, we felt safe walking in the area even in the evening when it was dark (we went in November, so it was dark early).

Kind of a loud hotel. There was noise outside the window and someone stomping above our room really early in the morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
