A really mixed bag. Great location (by Space Needle campus) and very nice rooms. The personal service that was so lauded was absent in our case...lots of newly hired and distracted 20 somethings at the desk. The view out the back is truly horrifying ... a crack house with squatters... but no spillover to the hotel. Lots of good restaurants...

Thank you for the review. I'm so sorry to hear that you felt the service was lacking. Please email me at wbraden@staypineapple.com if you would like to discuss this further. I would love to get the team back on track! The building behind the hotel is definitely a strain on the eyes but the neighborhood is a very nice one....

I had help with choosing this hotel - The knowledge base of TripAdvisor. I found that is was a true gem. Apart from the fact that the rooms are large and have everything you need, all the rest is free. Here is a list of all free things: 1. Mineral Water in the room 2. Shuttle to Downtown (reservation) 3....

We recently spent 5 nights in Seattle for a family wedding. Our group had two rooms at the Maxwell. It was a pleasant experience for everyone. One handicapped accessible room which was one of the most well planned I've ever seen. The other a 2 queen bed room for a family of 4 which was more compact but plenty of...

My first visit to Seattle consisted of 7 nights at this Hotel. The Hotel is located near downtown. It is within walking distance of the Space Needle, The EMP/Science Fiction Museum, and the Pacific Science Center. The check in process was quick and pleasant.

Trendy hotel with large rooms, wooden floors and colorful furnishings. Staff very friendly and helpful. Afternoon pineapple cupcakes and free bike use are a nice touch. Convenient to Space Needle. Hotel offers shuttle to downtown sites but not to airport.

This hotel has amazing guest services. Every person we encountered at this hotel was extremely friendly and helpful and I hope management commends them all for this.

Thank you for joining us all the way from New Zealand! We love our international travelers. It sounds like the team was very accommodating and I will thank them all for that.

We chose this hotel because it was convenient for our needs in Seattle - close to amenities and close to the Cruise Terminal at Pier 91. The hotel was very comfortable, with friendly staff. We ate in the 'The Rock' - the restaurant within the hotel. Our pizza and pulled-pork sandwich were delicious. The hotel did not have its own...

We have stayed at the Maxwell Hotel twice now during our annual family trip to Seattle. What we love is the neighborhood feel for this hotel and that it is not super noisy.
