Travel Blogs from Seattle
Checked out of the Huntingdon hotel at 10:15 after watching Andy Murray win. Walked the 50 metres to the clipper, checked in & went through customs, quite painless! After 2 hours landed in Seattle & went thru customs - not too long! Taxi to the Max Hotel, very nice.. Went for a walk & had lunch in Johnny Rockets an original hamburger …
Arriving in Seattle after traveling for about three full weeks we realized we're getting a little sick of traveling. Hotel to hotel gets a little draining. The dog is afraid of manhole covers and any metal in a sidewalk, which makes city life really difficult. Plus, we're not traveling like normal travelers. We are moving. We have three bright …
For our 9th anniversary, Steve suprised me with tickets to see my favourite band, Depeche Mode, in Seattle. It was a wonderful trip.
GET US OUT OF HERE!
Seattle is great and all, but seriously, when you are on your way to Europe with your best friend, Seattle is far from interesting.
We both got a great nights sleep in heavenly beds at our hotel. We each had 5 amazing pillows and a queen sized bed to chill in, with sheets that felt like soft little …
So today started out as any other day. I got up and had a few things to do before Sascha was to pick me up. I got everything I needed to do done, a little bit early and waited for the caravan to arrive. We headed for the border and waited over an hour before we got across. While we were in line Jade's (Sascha's sister) son (who is only 4 years old …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Max Seattle
Obviously this hotel is great for a solo traveler or a couple. Families should stay away in my opinion. If three people want to share a room, this is not the hotel for you.
Hotel Max is located in downtown Seattle, three blocks from the
Ok, maybe it wasn't a great idea to book my mother-in-law at a new hotel, but the articles and website gave every indication that this was a nice hotel.
The room is certainly small so maybe it's only ideal for a short stay - we stayed at the end of a fortnight holiday and didn't have anywhere in the room to put our large cases.
Max Hotel's Red Fin sushi restaurant the best!
I didn't stay at the hotel but checked out the new Japanese sushi restaurant connected to the Max Hotel called Red Fin. I live in NYC and have been to many great sushi restaurants like Nobu, Megu, Sushi Samba, Sushi of Gari and many others so I know good quality sushi. The Red Fin Chef's choice sushi were absolutely orgasmic! The decor may not match the NYC Times Square W Hotel's "Blue Fin" Japanese restaurant but the sushi and the pear sake could compete with the best in NYC. My fiancee and I have already planned to have our wedding rehearsal dinner here next year. We'll also give the hotel a try since it looks just as hip as all the boutique hotels here in NYC. It's also in a better location than the Seattle W Hotel.
The Hotel Max is a terrific place to stay as long as you are okay with very small, New York style hotel rooms. It used to be the Vance but has been completely overhauled to creat Hotel Max. Art is big here - every floor features black and white photographs entirely covering the room doors. They really stand out against hallways painted black. Each floor features the photography of a different artist, so be sure to check out more than your floor. Rooms are tiny, so I don't recommend this hotel for families or groups, but the double, with two double beds, is perfect for two adults. All furnishings, bedding, carpets, window coverings, etc. are contemporary and top quality. Bathroom is TINY - smaller than a cruise ship bathroom, and maybe only slightly larger than an airplane bathroom, but it's all so cool, who cares? Location is excellent, easy walking distance everywhere downtown. There's a sushi+ restaurant but we did not eat there.
We were not impressed. It is newly remodeled, yes, but poorly. First off, the rooms are way to small. Edges of carpet weren't finished, the plumbing is terrible, the "neat, contemperary" sink was very slow to drain, it was stainless steel--which was an attempt to look cool, but spots with one turn of the water. The shower was in a seperate room, not even a full size bath tub, the fire alarm went off everytime one of us took a shower if the door was open because the steam set it off...That was fun, running around naked trying to fan off the alarm...Even though the hotel wasn't booked, we got a view of an alley where we could hear people yelling all night. We could also see right into the peoples room next to us because we were on a corner...We actually saw them in the elevator on our way up to the room for the first time, the we got to see them laying on their bed, uncomfortable. The window unit above us leaked on our window unit, making a loud dripping noise all night. We paid over $4 bills for 2 nights, luckily it was in a good location so we could walk around the city and not stay in our room. We will stay somewhere else next time. And why the crappy view when they knew we were on our honeymoon?
I stayed at the HOTEL MAX on their opening night! The party was wonderful and the staff was so great! I heard that the bass player from Nirvana was there too! My room was very hip with great art and it was not too small for us. The beds are so comfortable and did I mention the hotel staff? I can't say enough about them...Especailly the front desk staff....Jess, Jen, Chris, and all the doormen. I will be back ASAP!
