Spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. The building reflects its status as one of historic importance. The lobby is imposing the staff excel and the king room was lacking nothing Being from the UK we were delighted to discover a kettle. A first for an American city. We ate in Shukers and the food and service were excellent. The... More

Found this hotel while searching for a spot before my cruise. The price on hotwire was amazing and so was the property. If you are into modern design this isn't the place for you. This is a classic hotel..lots of history and timelessness in this hotel. We arrived early and they were able to accomodate and let us check in... More

This stay was a great experience for us. The style of lobby area was impressive, the Georgian restaurant as well - best of all during our trip throughout the Northwest. Overall a premium impression to both of us.

We recently stayed at the Fairmont Copley in Boston and was less than satisfied (another story) but wanted to give the brand another try. So, on our last night in Seattle we spent a single night at the Fairmont Olympic Seattle. All I can say is wow, what a difference! From the moment we arrived until departure 24 hours later,... More

Our experience at the Fairmont Hotel in Seattle was nothing less than perfection. From the moment of our arrival where we were greeted with cold bottles of water, to the seamless check-in process. We were escorted to our rooms which were impeccably appointed and roomy. The bedroom and living room were separated by double doors for complete privacy. If there... More

If you're traveling to Seattle, don't overlook the opportunity to stay at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. Great location downtown, excellent restaurant, unbeatable service, can't recommend it enough. Stayed there before under different management, and it has only improved.

Service was sincere and genuinely good. The rooms are older victorian style. Hotel location was good. The fitness room was beautiful with pool and jacuzzi. There are twelve floors and the elevators move with speed. The people are extremely friendly and helpful. There are many services but you will pay extra for nearly everything from snacks, drinks, coffee in room... More

Walking into the lobby of this grand hotel you are immediately impressed. The service is very professional with seasoned staff and I appreciated the extra effort and attention to detail when I ordered up an ice bucket (with ice) and 4 champagne glasses. The gentleman who delivered the items was gracious, well-mannered and impeccably dressed and I almost asked him... More

Our bed was amazingly comfortable and the location was very quiet, making for a great night's sleep. Really nice fitness center and pool area. Excellent buffet breakfast with lots of homemade baked goods and a wide variety of fresh fruit. Decent fast room service for the kids and dinner at Shuckers for us.

The Fairmont is lovely with a grand lobby and spectacular chandeliers. The Georgian Dining Room is beautiful with great service and wonderful food. There are honey inspired dishes because they are harvesting honey from the beehives on their roof. Our suite was on the 5th floor and was spacious. Living room, bedroom, large bath and dressing area. The hotel is... More
