Occupying a landmark brick building in the middle of downtown, Hotel Max is a hip and artistic boutique property within a 15-minute walk of Pike Place Fish Market, the original Starbucks and the Space Needle. Welcoming guests since 1926, the Beaux Arts Classical Eclecticism edifice was refashioned into Hotel Max in 2005 drawing inspiration from local artists and architects when designing the lodgings.

Each floor of the hotel is dedicated to a different photographer from the Pacific Northwest, a black and white snapshot framed on every door. Interiors are appointed with mirrored walls, teak wood desks and more local artwork on the gray walls. Punches of color liven up the otherwise dull walls in the form of orange carpeting, fire engine red bathrooms and crimson accent pillows atop crisp white bed linens. Minimalist décor and the simplified color scheme keep these small rooms from feeling cramped. Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel and all rooms include amenities like Torrefazione coffee, Aveda bath products, as well as pillow and spiritual menus with a variety of religious texts from the Bible and Quran to Taoist texts and Hindu Bhagavad Gita guests can peruse.

The pet-friendly hotel pampers four-legged guests with special beds, bowls, toys and treats as well as a list of local dog walkers, parks and psychics. Those in town to experience Seattle’s grunge music scene can reserve rooms on the Sup Pop Floor, decorated with memorabilia from bands like Nirvana, Sound Garden and Pearl Jam. Rooms include a selection of vintage LPs and a turntable.

Each morning, complimentary coffee is served in the lobby and guests are welcomed to sample local craft beers at the daily happy hour, free of charge. Miller’s Guild is headed by a James Beard Award-winning chef and wood fires 75-day dry-aged beef on a custom-made, nine-foot grill. Steaks are paired with locally-inspired craft cocktails and homemade baked goods. The hotel’s gym and business center are open 24 hours a day.
