Great location - great hotel

Posted 17-Apr-2015
This is a historic hotel that has been totally renovated. Rooms are small but elegant and functional. Great location - only a few blocks from the monorail. Less than 10 minutes to Pike Market. Special treat of a craft beer in the afternoon and outstanding coffee in the morning.

Great place to stay.

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pros: The cafe/bar was nice. The rooms were very nice and well stocked with whatever was needed.
Cons: Nothing really. They do an excellent job.
Location: Close to everything downtown. Pikes. Shopping. And easy access to the freeway.
Had a good time. Staff was very good. Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The local beer happy hour was nice too. The Mariners could have been better. But, we are all used to that.

Unique hotel concept

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Older building with a new hotel look. Artistic design and paint. Full picture door for room entry makes this hotel unique. Single room is small but comfortable. Clean. Parking is expensive but walking distance to many downtown shops ect.

Nice boutique hotel, great location

Posted 07-Apr-2015
Pros: The location was very close to Jazz Alley where we attended a concert.
Location: Jazz Alley is close by. 10 min walk to Pike Place Market
The room we reserved was a Classic Queen Pleasant and helpful hotel staff. The room was thoughtfully decorated. The bed was very comfortable with very nice linens and good pillows. The bathroom was quite small, especially the shower. The shower water pressure and temperature regulation was great.

Great Stay

Posted 07-Apr-2015
The Hotel Max provided a great experience. The hotel is very central, we were able to walk to the Space Needle, Capitol Hill, Pioneer Square, and Pike Place Market. We only needed transportation for the airport and going to Fremont. The bed was very comfortable and the room was a good size even with three girls and our luggage. The bathroom was small but not uncomfortably small. The staff was very friendly gave great recommendations by first asking what interested us for nightlife and food. The coffee in the morning and beer in the evening is a great touch. If traveling alone one could easily meet others in the lobby either in the morning or else evening.

Nice hotel, great location, great staff!

Posted 06-Apr-2015
Pros: Loved the happy hour beer at the lobby and their Tree hugger program!
Cons: Blocking elevator noise in Rooms that are next to the elevator.
Location: Location wise, it is the best if you want to be in around downtown visiting tourist sites, all is walking distance.
Even when we were in a room next to the elevator, which was a little noisy late at night, our overall experience was great, the staff were super helpful and courteous and the atmosphere at the hotel is great. Location wise, it is the best if you want to be in around downtown visiting tourist sites, all is walking distance. Loved the happy hour beer at the lobby and their Tree hugger program! Keep up the great job guys!

It was fabulous. The staff couldn't have been better. We really enjoyed the "real" art that was throughout the hotel., and the location was near whatever we had set out to see. That included the light rail stop. It was a great trip, we would return to Hotel Max.

Lots of opportunity to improve

Posted 02-Apr-2015
I did a pre visit and thought the lobby was fine and the restaurant had great ambiance. Nothing wrong with the room. I found the bed too soft, but I sleep on the floor. Plugs, amenities in room and HOTEL staff were pleasant enough. I was on the 2nd floor and didn't want to show the world my goodies so I closed the blinds. Too dark for my taste. I wake with gradual sunlight. Not with the blinds. My major criticism is with the restaurant. Let me start and say the food was good, ambiance great. Unique flavors. BUT! I walked out the first night because at 9:20 it was too much of a hassle for the hostess to seat me. Apparently in a restaurant full of people with plenty of seats she felt in her best interest to not have me dine. I ate elsewhere. Breakfast the 1st day maintained the same poor service. But $25 food credit came with the room so I ate. 2nd day breakfast was perfect. Great food, great service. I spoke with the restaurant manager about my experience and he appeared to listen.

Garth's trip to Seattle

Posted 30-Mar-2015
Pros: Some of the old character left. Well located. Excellent staff.
Cons: Bathroom size. Change to free parking.
Location: Its a short walk to the market area and to the commercial centre. The Monorail is very close.
Check in was smooth and gracious. All the staff were excellent. The room was tight for 2 beds and the ensuite was small and cramped. Smaller than a head on a yacht. I am used to it but my friend found it difficult. Parking is valet and costs $45 or there is an open lot across the street for half that amount. I do think that parking should be included in the room price. Breakfast in the restaurant was really good and check out was smooth and gracious. I would stay there again, it is conveniently located, but ask for a larger bathroom.
