Nice hotel but very small rooms.

Posted 25-Mar-2017
The expected the room to be much larger but it was about 10 sq ft. The bathroom was as big as a closet with not counter space what so ever. Unfortunately I would not return.

It was OK

Posted 21-Mar-2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Bathroom was pretty dated
Maid skipped my room, which was fine... I was staying 2 nights. When I checked in, I took off my shoes and stepped on something gooey (maybe fruit) stuck into the carpet. I cleaned it with a wash cloth, but it stained my socks. Kind of gross.

Lost Reservation/Small Rooms

Posted 21-Mar-2017
First of all, my husband booked a room with the hotel through a different site and the reservation was completely lost. After I rebooked through Expedia I can say that the hotel is clean and 3 star worthy. The rooms are tiny, hopefully you really like your partner that much, tiny. The building seems to be older and the windows let all of the lovely sounds of downtown Seattle into the room, which now totally explains the complimentary ear plugs!

Location is awesome!

The hotel is in a great location. The bathroom is small and a little dangerous with the step up. Another shelf and and perhaps hooks to hang items would be helpful.

Old school Hotel

Posted 18-Mar-2017
It was a fun place but the rooms are so small and hard to get around the bed. Kinda noisy. I am just used to the newer Hotels that are built with comfort in mind. The staff was great. Parking was 40 a night. excellent restaurant downstairs.

Great Boutique Hotel in a Great Location.

Posted 13-Mar-2017
Pros: Free Beer Happy Hour! Great Location!
Cons: Soundproof bedroom windows
Location: Walking distance to space needle and Pike Place Market
Wonderful location. You can literally step out and see the Space Needle and maybe a 10 walk to Pike Place Market. And a 5 minute walks to all the shopping! Hotel Staff was friendly and Ciara was welcoming and helpful. We were able to get a slight upgrade on our room which was a plus. As other reviewers mentioned, the Beer Happy Hour was a great touch. We're from NYC and have been in boutique hotels that offer similar and it always feels unsettling, like you're a cheapskate for enjoying the hotel's complimentary Happy Hour. But here at Hotel Max, the atmosphere was so laid back! Everyone had a pint or two and hung out in the lobby. It was really nice! Free coffee in the am was another bonus. We wanted a laid back am and wanted brunch but we need our morning coffee! So convenient to run down, grab a cup in a to go mug and hang out in your room till you're ready to go. -A note on parking. The $40 valet seems a bit high. We found a covered lot -self parking, literally around the corner from the hotel. We thought it would cost us $24 for overnight. When we left, we paid under $10! from a Sat afternoon to Sunday afternoon! Can't be that!! -One last note, because of the good location, the hotel is on a main road and it was definitely a bit noisy at night. Even with the complimentary ear plugs and running of the a/c-heater... I could still hear sirens and outside noise. If you're a light sleeper like myself, this may be an issue. We were only here for one night so it was ok.

Hotel Max

Posted 11-Mar-2017
Cons: Woman who checked us in was quite abrupt and gave us minimal instructions/information.
Location: Chihuly Museum/Gardens, Space Needle, Pop Museum, Sport Bar, Pier, Aquarium, Market
Quaint, retrofitted hotel close to everything downtown. Room was a bit small, but manageable for the two of us. Minimal storage/drawer space and water closet was tiny but so are we, so we could make it work. Quiet in the midst of the bustle of the city with nice views of the Seattle skyline.

Good location.

Posted 07-Mar-2017
It's about a 10 minute walk to pike place market & emerald city. Mono rail & bus accessible. Hotel itself is small especially the shower. We constantly heard a thud & other noises in our room maybe because we are next to the elevator.

Such a fun hotel!

Posted 07-Mar-2017
We loved this hotel! From all of the old band photos to the free beer and wine they bring to your room. It was super clean and all of the staff were AMAZING! When we come back to Seattle we will definitely stay here again!
