Picasso Influences Special at Seattle Hotel

Published 08/27/2010

(Seattle, Washington) - The Maxwell Hotel, located at the base of Queen Anne hill adjacent to Seattle Center, is announcing the Celebrating Pablo package to correspond with the Seattle Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition “Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris.”

Eight decades of sculpture, prints, drawings and photographs from Picasso’s personal collection are coming to The Seattle Art Museum from the Musée National Picasso, Paris. Seattle is the first American stop for the traveling exhibit on possibly the only global tour of the 150-piece collection.

With the Celebrating Pablo package, guests will receive an overnight stay in an Aria King or Duet Queen room with a Space Needle view, two VIP passes to the Picasso exhibit, a $75 credit to Ten Mercer where guests can dine on Spanish tapas and wine, and two roundtrip Monorail tickets.

“The Maxwell strives to promote arts and culture in Seattle and the Celebrating Pablo package is designed to provide our guests with a memorable art experience,” said Michelle Foreman Barnet, president of Columbia West Properties, which owns The Maxwell. “This exhibit is an incredible opportunity to enjoy some of Picasso’s masterpieces.”

Guestrooms at the art-inspired Maxwell feature allergy-friendly wood floors, iPod docks with clocks, 42’’ flat panel televisions and complimentary Internet access. Guests also have access to complimentary parking, a 24-hour espresso bar, an indoor pool and a fitness facility. The Maxwell also features its own art collection, including a large mural in the lobby by painter Victor Ostrovsky that celebrates the hotel’s location in Seattle’s artistic center.

The Celebrating Pablo package is available from October 8 to January 11, 2011 with rates starting at $289. For more information or to make a reservation visit http://www.themaxwellhotel.com.

Located at the base of Queen Anne hill adjacent to the Seattle Center and the world-famous Space Needle, The Maxwell is a Columbia West Properties hotel with strong ties to Seattle’s arts community.  The hotel’s close proximity to Seattle’s top destinations including the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Seattle Opera, and the Pacific Northwest Ballet, makes The Maxwell a prime location for both leisure and business travelers. Built by Columbia West Properties’ Foreman family to reflect their values of warmth, welcome and hospitality, the hotel has 139 guestrooms, an indoor pool, an exercise facility, an espresso bar, 1,600 square feet of meeting space and 3,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. A hand-tiled pineapple mosaic honors the international symbol of hospitality and welcomes guests as they “meet at the pineapple.” For more information, please visit www.themaxwellhotel.com, or find The Maxwell on Facebook www.facebook.com/themaxwellhotel and Twitter www.twitter.com/themaxwellhotel.
