wonderful weekend visit to seattle, Olympic hotel has maintain the grandeur of old. also fortunate to have a warm and dry weather no extra charge. The service was first rate and my kids love the georgian room, you feel like royalty dining is the grand dinning room with the ornate ceilings and furnishings.

This property is divine. It is timeless, classic and you will learn the value of hospitality and how a guest should be treated. It is spotless, comfortable and a great value for the money. Outstanding!

This is the place to stay while in Seattle, the rooms are spacious, and very nice. Great service, short walk to everything, you can just park your car and forget about it. Upgrades are easy if you request ahead of time based on availability. All the rest of the hotels in downtown Seattle have much smaller rooms.

This hotel is a relatively short (well, during non-commute hours) drive from the Sea-Tac airport. From the time we drove up into the circular driveway, greeted by a uniformed staff member, into the lobby, the service was impeccable. Seattle is hilly, so the driveway reception requires that you either take an elevator or an escalator up to the lobby itself.... More

The Fairmont is my hotel of choice. The service is great and the people are fantastic. They have fantastic locations around the world, and there are great benefits to be a part of their loyalty program.

My parents held their 50th wedding anniversary in the Garden Room and it was excellent, the staff was extremely sincere and attentive. Not one person was surfing messages on their cell phone or entertaining any distraction, very top notch. My parents had arranged for a pianist and the piano in the lobby was moved to accommodate the request. I was... More

We booked a few days in Seattle at the Fairmont for our 25th anniversary and we were very pleased. We were allowed to check in early and our room was upgraded to a suite. The room was very large and furnished appropriately with very traditional furniture for the historic property. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The bed was... More
