Las Vegas, Nevada
Reviewed 8 February 2016

Hotel is fun and comfortable. Bathroom a bit small, but totally worth it. In a good part of town and can walk to all the sights. Room has A/C and I did not have a problem with street noise as I did at other properties. Check in and out was a breeze.

The hotel works well on a business stay. Rooms are small but normal for a big city downtown hotel. Clean and a good rock vibe. I would stay again. Check out your parking options. Nice area to hang out downstairs with an internet cafe feel. Very easy to access and strong internet signal. Starbucks right across the street if needed.

Super Place! Max is so very cool- without being "over the top". Every hotel seems to have the same old similar and mundane. Hotel Max will change how you choose your Hotels. The beds are so comfy and thick- large rooms, creativity , design everywhere! The staff love their jobs and it shines through to you! I took my daughter...

Hey there Elizabeth! Thanks for staying with us and for taking a moment to share your story with the TripAdvisor community. I must admit that I loved review just based off of the title.

Reviewed 8 February 2016

Overall, my stay was good. Wished the shower was bigger. The shower curtain takes up half the shower due to suction, making it even smaller. I would recommend adding weights to the bottom of the curtains to keep it in place. Overall the hotel is nice and clean. Would definitely stay there again!

Hey there 395philippes! Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to share your comments. We hate hearing that our guests didn't enjoy their stay.

This is very nearly a great hotel. Perfect location, extremely nice employees, a free beer tasting every day. What more could a person want? Unfortunately the rooms are tiny. Very tiny. The bathroom is tiny, the shower is tiny. If you're not very large, then this won't be an issue.

Hip without pretentiousness. Loved the music-themed hotel AND the hotel's history. Great location. We caught the train to town. Hotel Max is perfectly located, so we walked everywhere we needed to go - restaurants, church, shopping, concert at Jazz Alley. EXCELLENT hotel staff, especially Jamie and Alex. Free beer and social hour were surprisingly fun. We had a corner room...
