Hotel Max is a luxury property known as downtown Seattle’s home away from home for musicians, art lovers and the creatively inclined.
It’s an edgy but chic boutique hotel that offers travelers a base for urban adventures that mix art with style.
It’s best described as a boutique hotel and a nontraditional art gallery where modern design interplays gracefully with original works of art and photography to create a one-of-a-kind experience.
Hotel Max displays commissioned works by innovative artists throughout the hotel. Artist Tony Evanko designed a feature piece for the lobby utilizing his concepts of communication and ambiguity and featuring graphs, maps, codes and alphabets.
Among other well-established artists who are featured in the lobby and in the guestrooms are Jackie Barnett, Andrée Carter, Jay Backstrand, Junko Yamamoto and Pam Baker.
Upstairs, each of the 10 guestroom floors at Hotel Max features the work of a different Seattle photographer.
Images from artists like John Armstrong and Roniq Bartanen adorn the exterior of all 163 guestroom doors in the form of oversize photographic overlays.
One of the most iconic collections in the hotel can be found on the 5th floor which features the works of Charles Peterson, the photographer who documented Seattle’s grunge era music scene. Here you will find larger than life images of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney and others forever rocking out in the corridors of Hotel Max.
The historic 1925 space honors Seattle’s lumber industry and has been artfully restored and updated with furnishings from local craftsman and a custom-made 9 ft. long Inferno grill.
Hotel Max recently redesigned its lobby with socialization in mind, providing even more spaces to kick back and relax. New bar seating now nestled against Hotel Max’s lobby windows is equipped with power stations where guests can charge their devices and utilize the hotels’ free Wi-Fi to catch up on work or plan their Seattle exploration.
Sofas in warm grey tweed and rich camel leather provide the perfect place for a quick meeting, catching up with friends or making new ones while armchairs in light grey wool and dark grey leather offer a respite from the city’s hustle and bustle.
Hotel Max is located at 620 Stewart Street in Seattle.
