The Maxwell Hotel

The Maxwell Hotel
Seattle, WA

i booked this hotel for two reasons: a) it was ranked as one of tripadvisor’s top 10 trendiest hotels in the US for 2011 and b) it was priced right — $111/night + taxes.

the reviews are true: it’s definitely a four-star hotel at three-star prices. large slick rooms with hardwood floors, free parking, free (speedy, especially for free and hotel) wi-fi, and a flat-panel TV (albeit with very limited HD channels) with DVD player. you also get an in-room microwave, fridge, and keurig single-serving coffee machine. to go with these: a selection of k-cups, a pack of microwave popcorn, and two bottles of water to wash it all down. the beds are comfortable, towels plush.

a couple of minor quibbles:

given the hotel’s great pricing, amenities, and location (just blocks away from seattle center), i’m definitely staying here again the next time i visit seattle! i wouldn’t call it trendy, though, just modern and well-themed.
