Hotel Max, located at 620 Stewart Street in Downtown Seattle, has partnered with Sub Pop Records, the city’s influential record label, to upgrade the rooms on the fifth floor of the hotel.
Furthermore, the hotel will support the Experience Music Project’s new ‘Women Who Rock’ exhibition, by offering a unique ‘I Love Rock n’ Roll’ getaway package.
Just in time with Sub Pop’s 25th anniversary this summer, the hotel refurbished all 19 rooms on the fifth floor in celebration of the famous record label that broke the city’s signature sound in the 90’s and since stands for the diverse Pacific Northwest music scene.
Each room now includes Sub Pop band posters, turntables, vinyl records and music videos on the in-room televisions.
The posters are provided with a QR code that enables guests to use their smart phones to scroll through the label’s website and order posters and music online.
And the new televisions now feature a Sub Pop TV channel, only available at the Hotel that broadcast current and classic music videos from the label’s archives.
The hotels one-of-a-kind interior is completed with pictures from various Seattle photographers, amongst others Charles Peterson who captured the region’s music passion on camera in the late 80’s and 90’s and helped to define the early Sub Pop aesthetic on the record covers for Nirvana and Mudhoney.
Seattle’s attraction EMP is a museum dedicated to music and creative processes and it features collections, exhibitions, educational programmes and interactive facilities.
EMP is located on the campus of Seattle Centre, adjacent to the Space Needle and the Seattle Centre Monorail, which runs through the building.
