We have stayed at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle numerous times and continue to find it to be a very good hotel. Rooms are comfortable and well kept with comfortable beds. Service is very good. Public areas are very nice and the Georgian dining room is good. This hotel meets the test of a fine hotel and is highly... More

We have stayed in Seattle many times and if it is luxury you are looking for then this hotel will not disappoint. It is also in a great location. I would definitely stay here again, but it does come with a hefty price tag.

I was between a 4 and a 5 for this hotel but I gave it a five rating because of the service. -The doormen are all exceptional! When staying in the hotel you don't interact with the concierge much because they aren't on your way out of the hotel, This is where a knowledgeable doorman comes into play and the... More

I found myself on the hide-a-bed the first night of our trip, usually a punishment for drawing the short straw, resulting in a future chiropractor visit and a bad day. That being said, after a night on their mattress, I found myself "taking one for the team" for the next 2 nights while secretly sleeping like a baby. I'm not... More

Located on the original University of Washington grounds, this piece of history is all class, All I can say is go! As soon as you enter you are treated like royalty and the entire staff is so down to earth and friendly, you never want to leave. Splurge on the room service-oh my! Enjoy walking the hotel and it's grounds.... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Olympic as part of our package holiday on the Rocky Montaineer and prior to an Alaskan cruise. It is a beautiful and luxurious hotel. It is well situated not far from the harbour front , though it is a steep walk down to the harbour and back. It is also near Pike Place market and... More

This is a Fairmont standard hotel. The room was nicely appointed and the bed comfortable. Check in and out was really easy as the friendly doorman had our key ready. However all this "convenience" comes at the expense of further personal contact. We left with the feeling that we had stayed in a room not an hotel. Also the Fairmont... More

I couldn't have been happier with the location of Fairmont Olympic, it's located within easy waking distance of the shopping district and Pike Place Market. The hotel is located in a beautiful historic building and has a great entry and lobby. Rick the doorman was the most outstanding doorman I've ever had in all of my travels and his extra... More

First class establishment in a great location! The hotel is beautifully furnished and extremely clean. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, polite, professional and helpful. They have all the amenities you could ask for and the food is great. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Seattle.

Stayed 8-29-9-1-14. Two 10th floor rooms, my corner room and one regular room for the kids who are actually 25 and 20, so after confiscating their mini-bar key we enjoyed the hotel. The location is perfect: an easy walk to Pikes place Market and to a monorail station to get to the City Center to see the Space Needle. Staff:... More
