My wife and I recently visited Seattle for the first time. Hotel Max was one of the many hotel options with the travel package. This hotel seemed a bit quirky compared to other hotels in the area. I liked that it looked different. Plus, the location of the hotel in downtown Seattle was excellent. We walked everywhere from the hotel - Pikes Place Market, CenturyLink Field, Space Needle, and the great bars in the area. When we checked into the hotel, I believe Travis assisted us. He was extremely helpful. We asked for suggestions for meals, Happy Hours, etc. He took the time to show us different restaurants on a map and his personal favorites. Throughout our stay, the folks at the Front Desk were very kind. The doormen were always going out of their way to help us and answer any questions we had. Based on others' reviews, we knew that the room would be small. It did not disappoint! However, we were only in the room to sleep at night or take naps in the afternoon. I actually liked how quaint the room was. The bathroom was small, too; however, I did not feel trapped in it. The elevators were surprising small as well. The size of these areas did not bother us. I thought it was part of the character of the hotel as was the artwork throughout the hotel. Inside the room, a pillow menu was offered, which we did not take advantage. However, I liked how different pillow textures were offered, based on one's sleeping style. My wife and I took advantage of the option not to have our room cleaned every day. We were barely in the room so we did not feel the need to have it cleaned all of the time. Also, we visited the Red Fin Sushi Restaurant, which is connected to the hotel. Service was excellent, and the food was phenomenal. The Toro sushi was unreal! Overall, I would definitely suggest Hotel Max. If you are looking for a hotel to hang out, this is not the place for you. However, if you want a hotel with great service in a great downtown location, Hotel Max is for you.
