Beautiful property with a history that is close to any downtown or waterfront attraction you may want to walk to. What separates this hotel is the attention to detail and the staff. Many have been with the hotel for a number of years and are a wealth of information. Danny at the door is the go to person for directions,... More

We had a lovely suite which was huge for a city centre hotel. The partition between the sleeping area and seating area was slightly see through which led to me waking up my husband a few times in the morning. Good location with some rest views.

We are currently staying at this hotel for our Wedding Anniversary and it is superb. Every attention to detail down to the exotic floral arrangements on the lower lobby entrance to the amazingly professional care by all members of staff has made this a magical stay. We have a suite which is beautiful. If we have needed help at any... More

Great Hotel - staff very friendly and helpful. The work out area is wonderful. Nice location so that walking to downtown sites is easy. A little noisy but I am from the country. The only down side is the expense and they do make you pay for WIFI.

hard to beat for location, comfort, and service. Bus stops a block away. Pikes Market a pleasant stroll. Couple minutes to the Convention Center. Surrounded by good eeats. Plus, Shucker's (downstairs) is a really nice place to eat for both lunch or dinner. Great Happy Hour with $1.50 oysters. Nice micro-brews. The Louis Crab Salad is an extraordinary bargain.

We have stayed at other Fairmonts and are always so pleased. The special service that they provide is so welcoming. We were always called by name and had four truffle candies waiting in our room for us. The turn down service was wonderful and our linens and bedding were top of the line. We slept like babies and the whole... More

The hub of Seattle, elegant setting and atmosphere. Caring and welcoming staff. Traditional service and grand hotel experience! Good downtown location. Worth a splurge for high quality. Beautiful breakfast in old fashioned dining room.

This hotel is beautifully decorated for the holiday season. They decorated Christmas trees and auctioned off in early December for charity. There is a room decorated with teddy bears which is cute. Rooms are great. Everything is clean and well maintained. Plenty of room with couch, desk, chair, hairdryer, scales, full length mirror. Staff is friendly and helpful. Fantastic location... More

This hotel was beyond the best. The staff were right on task and the rooms are elegant. The breakfast in the hotel dining room is fantastic and the seafood reasturant on the bottom floor is a really nice place to let loose with a few drinks and great food. The door men are very helpful and the hotel car and... More
