          The Maxwell Hotel was more than I expected. Nestled in lower Queen Anne just a few short blocks walking distance from Seattle Center, my family and I enjoyed everything about the hotel. The Space Needle was a great deal closer than expected and many delicious, uncrowded restaurants were also within walking distance. The hotel was very modern with contemporary decor in both the lobby and the room. As I sat in their spacious, comfortably decorated lobby, which was more of a casual sitting area, I enjoyed complimentary tea cakes and a reasonably- priced latte made by the hotel staff. Each staff member was professional and helpful each time a guest came to ask for what to do in the area. Everything was within a few minutes walking distance and the area was safe & quiet to walk around-even at night. It was more than we expected and will absolutely recommend it to friends and book another visit very soon.

          If you are unhappy with The Maxwell you are going to be extraordinarily difficult to please. Rooms are spacious, the location is ideal especially for those prepared to walk around Seattle and the staff are friendly, efficient and seem ever eager to help. Definitely staying at the Maxwell whenever we are in Seattle.

          The location was great and it was easy to use the Monorail to go to the market, and downtown. Emp - was interesting, the Space Needle was fun and being able to walk to the hotel was great.

          I have no serious complaints, but a coffee shop would have been nice. We were able to purchase some breakfast food and tables were available in the lobby. We took advantage of this on the day we left.

          A well located hotel - convenient to Space Needle and Mono-rail. Very stylish interior decor and extremely comfortable room.

          The Maxwell was very clean with very pleasant staff. The staff were not overly friendly, but they were very professional and answered all questions and needs. Parking was very convenient under the building, did not seem to be over priced, and never had a problem finding a spot. In fact, parking was much cheaper at this hotel than the hotels down near Pike Place Market or that were deeper into the downtown area. There were restaurants nearby that were very good and a qfc grocery store. I did check out a bicycle from the staff to run a quick errand down to the Music Museum. We liked the way that the hotel was decorated. The rooms were sized nicely.

          At night, you could hear people in other rooms, but not outside traffic. The room was so clean and comfortable that this noise ended up being a minor irritation for us. While the free bikes were a nice extra benefit for guests, and the bike was fairly new and came with a lock and helmet, I'm a 6' 1" guy, and was given a girl's bike that I couldn't adjust up to my size... So, I felt a bit dorky riding it around. Oh well, I was using the bike to run a quick errand with, so it wasn't bad. The hotel isn't really located in a great place for bicycle riding anyway and I surely wouldn't recommend a quest riding one of these bikes to the downtown area. These are minor complaints though! Overall, we loved the Maxwell and would stay there again!

          The Maxwell Hotel was in a great location to Seattle Center. We enjoyed our walk from the hotel to the Space Needle. We were also within walking distance to two different 24 hr. Grocery stores.

          There is no breakfast at this hotel. This can make it difficult if you have little ones that need to eat first thing in the morning. There is a microwave and mini refrigerator (no freezer) so do yourself a favor and go buy a few groceries at the near by 24 hr. Grocery stores.

          Very clean, great location, and fun artistic decor. Loved the laminated floors in room and prefer it over carpet. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable, lighting was excellent in room, and large flat screen tv with dvd. Just two blocks away from Seattle Center and easy access to Tram for trip into downtown (only $2 one way). We walked back to the hotel along the waterfront much of the way and it was a great way to get some exercise.

          The hotel really needs a restaurant. Even a small cafe' would work...anything would be better than not having something. Great space to socialize and mingle in lobby but missing the dinning piece to complement it. Wished a spa or hot tub was available. Good parking but a bit tight in the spacing.

          Loved the Maxwell Hotel. Super clean, really great design and interieur. Loved the hard wood floors in the rooms - made it all seem cleaner og more hygenic. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay there again should we ever return to Seattle.

          The staff were friendly. The parking was free a big bonus in Seattle. The location was handy for all the attractions at the Seattle Center part of the city. Were able to walk to other areas and use Monorail and buses to get to other attractions further afield. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. Would stay here again if visiting Seattle.

          Very nice location next to the space needle and Seattle center. The under ground parking is convenient and free. Room and decor is great and slightly boutique. Very close to the Queen Anne neighborhood. Lots of dining options close by.
