Enjoyed our stay at the Max. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very warm and welcoming lobby. Valet service and belle were outstanding. The bar and restaurant just off the lobby were very good with exceptional room service. The only negative comment is the room size. The rooms a small but they are very comfortable so size wasn't really a...

Boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Seattle. He found this wonderful hotel. It is amazing. Details to attention. Friendly staff. Happy hour everyday with free craft beer from the 5:30 - 6:30. Original art throughout the hotel and in every room. Fabulous beds and showers. Definitely a first class hotel. Highly recommend.

Street noise is ample, but I otherwise really like this hotel. Craft beer hour is great! I appreciated the umbrella. Lather products are lovely. Blah blah blah blah. Bed is super comfy. Would stay here again.

I travel to Seattle frequently and The Max has been my hotel of choice for many years. The staff is consistently professional, yet friendly. The location is superb - a great base for walking to many of the city's excellent restaurants, bars and shops. The rooms are small, but well appointed. Best of all, the hip vibe takes the 'boring'...

The rooms at this spot are tiny but the staff, concierge and restaurant are wonderful. They go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and taken care of. The decor is also very different, minus the racy room cards, it had lots of character.

Travelling a lot internationally, the Max Hotel in Seattle was a great and different (positive) experience. The staff was great and from the first minute I felt welcome (not a sterile business environment as in most business hotels). In the future I will no longer search for hotels in Seattle, I have found mine! Thanks for a great experience!

Nice place with very modern artsy feel, but if you're offended by photos of bare butt cheeks, go somewhere else. They seemed to be everywhere. Check-in was quick and easy, staff were very friendly. It was the last 5 minutes of the craft beer hour when we arrived, so the check-in staff made sure we got a beer while we...

This place is over the top. Friendly staff , great free beer happy hour and close to everywhere. The rooms are clean and the atmosphere is wonky. This place doesn't try and be elegant it tries to be comfortable , welcoming and accidentally cool in the heart of city. I would recommend this place to anyone that doesn't take themselves...

All so good. WAY better than the standard hotel experience. Felt very pampered, posh and cool. Every detail a class act with style. The valet was so friendly. The afternoon beer in the lobby a great idea. Desk staff gave us good tips for things to do.
