Stayed in a small suite in this hotel with great amenities - a strong plus was the good workout area and pool. The location of this hotel really can't be beat - I would recommend the Fairmont Olympic to anyone doing business or just sightseeing in downtown Seattle.

We do a lot of traveling both for business and pleasure and the Fairmont Olympic is by far one of our favorite hotels in North America. We have stayed at the Fairmont several times in the last few years and it is always a consistenly satisfying stay. The staff are always courteous and delightful to deal with. Even when we... More

Great location, walked everywhere from Pike Place Market to beltown. The light rail station is 1 block from hotel, we used to go to the Mariners game, but we could have walked. Service at hotel is outstanding. Room was large. No problem with check in or check out. Elevators were fast, never had a wait. We will stay here again.... More

We love the Fairmont Olympic. The quality and service are exceptional. The location is unbeatable, only a couple of blocks from Pike's Market, shopping, great restaurants. Beautiful indoor pool and free work-out room. Shucker's and the French Cafe at street level both have exceptional food. We love to have martinis on the terrace lounge at happy hour. Staff are fabulous.

After a disastrous trip to Reykjavik, which is usually one of my supremely favorite places to pound down, the beauty of the Fairmont Olymipia leaves even me ; speechless. Well,not quite. We took the train from Sea-Tac to the University exit. It was dark, moist, crisp and wonderful as we walked up University being trailed by our baggage When we... More

This is the address to stay while in Seattle. An elegant hotel with all the amenities and luxury that you could want while in a perfect central location. Our room was spacious and updated and had a great view of the city. The dining experience was varied and all excellent.

A classic Downtown Hotel. Full service is a understatement-from the time you pull up into the little front loop, you are well taken care of. Amazing staff, amazing food, beautiful classy high quality hotel. Near all the major venues, including Safeco and Century Link fields and great downtown shopping including Pike Place Market. My wife shopped while we went to... More

This is a fantastic hotel with spacious rooms and every amenity. The umbrella in my closet and an Iphone charger by the bed were just two that really stood out to me. The fitness room, pool and locker rooms are gorgeous. The food is very tasty, if a little bit on the pricy side. Everyone was friendly and willing to... More

Quaint interiors and courteous staff make it a pleasant experience to stay here.. We had an executive suite on the 9th floor, which was gorgeous! It didn't have a view though considering its... More
