I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff was awesome, the restaurant/bar was perfect, the room was clean and very comfortable. I would really highly rate this place and recommend the fairmont Olympic to anyone traveling to the Seattle area.

Great location, great service from the day we arrived until check out, everything is wonderful! Highly recommend it!! They gave our kids little coupons to call for milk and cookies, it was so cute and they never Nickel and dime you. The pool, gym and spa are well maintained and great for families.

We only spent one night at this hotel, but it was very nice. The room was a little smaller than we expected, but the hotel itself was clean and comfortable (the bed was great). The elaborate flowers in the lobby were real (I checked)! Everyone was attentive - the valet parking was prompt in retrieving our car (although there was... More

This is a top notch hotel that exudes old world elegance. If you prefer granite and marble to chrome and mirrors this is the place for you. The staff are all extremely friendly and very helpful. It was almost a step back in time. It may seem a bit pricey when compared to its more modern competition.

This summer we are staying at three Fairmont hotels. First, the one in the Grand Del Mar and frankly that hotel is a category all to itself - its really a seven-star hotel. Second, the Fairmont in Seattle and finally the Fairmont in San Francisco. Putting aside the the Fairmont San Diego is really more of a Four Seasons and... More

Booked one night for our family of three via major platinum card. Also a member of Fairmont President's Club. Received email where we could check in before we arrived, so we did. Nevertheless, we still got sent to Reception. Asked for 1:00 pm checkout which they granted. Get to the room (Executive King Suite), and it clearly didn't accommodate three... More

lovely place, excellent concierge service. Asked for directions to various attractions, and they researched them, printed and delivered them to the room. Super room service both by the room attendant and the food delivery people. Excellent location, closed to all the shopping area, the famous market, and the duck rides....

Precisely what you expect when booking a room at a Fairmont. Clean, spacious and perfect. Staff were accommodating and very helpful, room was well sound-proofed and had a fantastic city view. Beds are the some of the best I've ever slept on. Will definitely be back
