In the heart of downtown Seattle Washington, the Hotel Max can offer an artistic setting for both business and pleasure. The Hotel Max Seattle provides the platform for both emerging and established artists and photographers from the Greater Seattle area and beyond. There are more than 350 original paintings and photographs found throughout this Seattle Washington hotel in the lobby, guest rooms and corridors.
Hotel Max gives you a touch of cool with a hint of rapture. Just open the window and you’ll see that the Hotel Max has great views of downtown Seattle. In fact, the Hotel Max defines downtown Seattle all within a close walking distance from great shopping, terrific food and out-of-this-world museums and cultural centers.
A funky lobby playing rock and roll immediately sets the hip, modern mood of the rest of the hotel. Guests’ doors are covered in full-length photographs–including a “grunge floor” of Seattle legends–and each room contains an original painting by a Northwest artist. Amenities are plush–fully stocked business and fitness centers, 24-hour room service from Red Fin sushi downstairs, flat-screen LCD TVs and special pillow and spiritual menus to personalize the experience.
Right in the middle of downtown Seattle, Washington; the Hotel Max’s low-key design leads you to think business, but it has a TON of art. The whole place is designed as a foil for both emerging and established artists & photographers in town. Each floor takes you on a journey through a different photographer’s eye. Hotel Max has the glamour and the gleam to keep your mind fixated on the most artistic Seattle hotel.
The hotel’s Red Fin restaurant, like its ever-popular, sister restaurant Wasabi Bistro in Belltown — offers innovative Asian fusion in a stylish and inviting atmosphere. From inventive sushi rolls to a tender Angus steak, Red Fin delights even the most discriminate palette. Join them for your favorite libation at Red Fin’s bar featuring a broad variety of Japanese sakes and imaginative cocktails.
The Hotel Max sits on the immediate edge of the core shopping district in downtown Seattle. Walk one block to the upscale Pacific Place mall and Nordstrom’s. Four or five blocks will deliver you to the theater district, including the Paramount and the 5th Avenue Theater. And there is no need stray far for a great meal. And depending on your vice, Starbucks is directly across the street or walk a couple of blocks to Cold Stone Creamery for an ice cream.
All around, the Hotel Max is a great hotel – particularly for the price.
Hotel Max is at 620 Stewart Street, Seattle WA 98101
