The Maxwell

Seattle, Seattle & Washington State

The hotel

Some places just stand out from the crowd — and The Maxwell is one of them. We love its décor, its understated red brick façade jazzed up inside, with touches like a giant mosaic pineapple and sunglass-worthy paint choices. Check out the funky furnishings, like bright magenta pod chairs paired with lime green tables. The hotel also buzzes with a vibrant spirit, serves ‘Afternoon Delights’ in the shape of pineapple cupcakes, and has a cool casual menu at Pineapple Bistro & Bar. Why not rent out one of its vivid yellow beach cruiser bikes and explore the nearby landmarks.

The Maxwell is always one of my favorite places to stay in Seattle. It is easy to get into & out of and is in a convenient location. The staff are always incredibly pleasant and helpful. This last trip I was treated like a VIP.

The pineapple touches accentuate the great service. Any issue that we called or texted the staff responded to right away in a friendly manner (such as needing non-feather pillows). The room was spacious and clean, lots of fluffly towels, microwave and frig, lots of usb ports, wifi thru-out the hotel. There was often live music in the lobby.

My husband and I always enjoy staying at this hotel. Great location walkable to the Seattle Center and many bars and restaurants. They go above and beyond to make sure you have an excellent stay. Very pet friendly. Even provided band-aids and neosporin to my room when needed.

We decided to do a staycation for our anniversary and wanted to check out museums around the area. Checkin process was quick and easy! I had originally planned a little surprise to greet my partner (beer and chips) but unfortunately, the hotel’s system was down and they missed the request. I was a bit bummed, but the staff immediately reached out to me via phone and they offered to take care of dinner for us! It was so sweet. The room itself was great, the bed was so comfortable and the robes were a great touch! We will definitely be back! Read less
