"Just as great the second time around"
The first time we visited to Seattle, we took a chance on this highly rated hotel with its prime location and charm oozing out of the pictures posted by other guests. It turned out to be one of our top hotel experiences, and a place we talked about repeatedly when recalling what we loved about Seattle. So of course when we made plans to visit Seattle again, there was no other place we wanted to stay than The Maxwell. This hotel again did not disappoint - the staff are all so welcoming and accommodating, the rooms are kept so clean, the amenities offered in your room as part of your stay (ie no extra charges) are plentiful and beat most competitors (bottled waters, keurig coffee/tea, popcorn, free house slippers, dispensers with shampoo, conditioner, body soap, hand soap, lotion), the free shuttle service is wonderful, the afternoon cupcakes and coffee are delicious, the free parking garage is gate controlled and secure, even the umbrella in the closet is a thoughtful touch. The Maxwell folks truly put a lot of thought into what would make their guests comfortable. The only negative throughout the whole experience was their wifi (we were on the 2nd floor) was quite slow, and it was faster to turn my phone into a hotspot as many sites took forever to load otherwise.
