Hotel Max-Seattle Boutique Worth A Look

Posted 25-Aug-2016
Pros: Proximity to everything Loved decor Restaurant
Location: Near Linkrail, Amazon HQ, easy walking distance to downtown Seattle, would be easy to get to University of Washington stadium from here too
I really enjoyed staying at Hotel Max. Fantastic boutique hotel with all the hip bells and whistles. About a block to Linkrail station, so took that from airport and easily walked to hotel. Happening lobby, great restaurant there, and close to everything. Would absolutely stay here again.

Hip and trendy hotel - excellent staff but noisy.

Posted 23-Aug-2016
Pros: Excellent staff and food and location.
Location: Excellent location in downtown Seattle.
The staff at the hotel are very kind. I loved the staff. They have free tea and beer time which is also great. However, I was a little bit disappointed with the room. It is clean and nice but the room was a bit too cold for me. I turned of the AC and turned on heating but it did not work. Washing basin in the restroom was a bit too small and also the water will not drain quickly and so it was not very convenient ( I had to wait for water to drain to continue to use it). It was also a bit noisy in the room. I could hear cars and various kinds of noise and this bothered me little bit when I was trying to go to bed after a long tiring flight. But the room service/ food at the hotel restaurant/ bar were excellent! Also a great location. I will definitely recommend this hotel to others but I am not sure whether I will stay here next time I visit Seattle. It's a wonderful hotel, but maybe it's just not really my type. I prefer more cozy/ quiet rooms with bigger restrooms.

Pleasant weekend stay

Posted 20-Aug-2016
Pros: Facilities were modern and in good working order. Ample parking. Good location. Room comfortable.
Location: There are ample shopping and restaurant opportunities within walking distance. Pike Place Marketis within walking distance.
We weren't familiar with Seattle but this location seems well situated. We walked to Pike Place Market to have lunch and later drove 15 minutes to the University of Washington (light traffic). The hotel is on a street corner so it's easy to remember its location. There was a bellman but he didn't come out to help with our luggage (a minor ding). Reception staff was pleasant and competent. Our room was clean, well appointed and accommodated us well. Room air conditioning was a tad loud. Minimal street noise (our room faced the street but it was the weekend). Some early morning trash pickup. We parked in the pay lot (not secured) across the street which is much cheaper than the hotel lot (which is secured). In and out access on a weekend was a breeze. Seattle is hilly but very walkable. We had breakfast at the hotel restaurant. A tad expensive but the servings were substantial (you can easily split an order) and imaginatively and well prepared.

Nicely remodeled downtown hotel.

Posted 15-Aug-2016
We really enjoyed out stay at hotel max it's within walking distance of all of downtown Seattle. There's a public parking lot that our friends used instead of valet and it was a $30 ride to the airport. We will recommend hotel max to others that travel to Seattle!

You pay for the lobby, little more

Posted 10-Aug-2016
For the price I paid ($400+) the room was really subpar. All the style was left in the bar and lobby.

Great hotel with a great location

Posted 09-Aug-2016
Stayed at this hotel when visiting for a soccer match, the hotel is close to public transportation that can get you to the stadium quickly, or you can even walk and see all that Seattle offers. The hotel is on an olde building but they were able to transform it into an awesome hotel, the lobby is very nice and offer great couches and board games, the room I booked was a great size for my stay, the bed was comfortable and clean. The only few bad experiences were the hotel doesn't offer parking only valet and it's $45 dollars, parking in Seattle is expensive but I was not made aware of this until I got to the hotel. The second my floor smelled like a narcotic for my entire stay I told one of the staff about it but nothing was done, the third my shower had hair from a previous guest and black mold on some parts of the shower. Overall I had a great experience and if the hotel staff can remedy this few things it could be a great hotel, because of the location and staff I would consider staying here again.

Overall nice hotel and experience

Posted 06-Aug-2016
Overall nice hotel and experience close to pike place market and monorail and needle! Beer happy hour in lobby everyday complimentary. The only reason for low ratings was we had a situation with a female front desk worker who shall remain nameless. She was slow to resolve the issue and the rudest person I met in Seattle. Everyone else and everything else was great; however it only takes one sour apple and experience to impact everything else!
