“Great location, great gym”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

All in all, another example of Hyatt's consistent classy execution. The hotel has a great location for business and for tourism. It is about a two block walk from Nordstroms and other major shopping locales. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Pike's Fish Market.

The gym was a real standout, definitely one of the nicest that I have seen in a big city hotel. Large and spacious with lots of equipment and a nice view over downtown Seattle.

The bathroom was large and well lit with a great shower. No tub though, I assume that would violate their green commitments.

You definitely cannot go wrong here.

We booked this Hotel since the fedback on trip advisor was poisitive, but we had a very bad exoperience:
1. everything was not incuded (not even WIFI connecctoin) that now days you get free even at Holiday Inn Express

2. My husbunds AARP was n ot recognised, since they said there were no available rooms

3. The only way to park here is by means of "Wallett Parking" and this costs 30 extra dollars.

Just to make it short, as I said, stay away from this Hotel!

I enjoyed my stay of 3 nights in this hotel - very modern but pleasantly so, well equipped for the current traveler with electrical outlets in all the right places! There was a fridge - perfect to keep my water and snacks cold, and a coffee maker with good quality coffee - again, perfect for an easterner who needs her coffee early in the morning.
The location was great for Convention Centre and many many dining options. I was traveling on business so I suspect that I would find it a little too expensive for my private budget (especially if I had to pay extra for internet - it was free with my reservation due to the meeting I was attending), but I was very happy with my choice.
I had also booked a room for a meeting at the hotel. The room was lovely, spacious and with a nice view. However, the cost (including a phone line but not Internet) was quite high; and the service was rather less than stellar: even though we called in for assistance, no one showed up. My credit card was also charged an extra amount almost two weeks after I checked out, apparently for the "difference" in real costs, which I so far refused to pay.
A lovely hotel, but watch your step and bill with any extras!

Regrettably I spent only one quick night here, but I loved it.
The staff was friendly, the food was good, the rooms were nice and big.
I noticed no bath, a trend I see more and more, but the bathroom was still nice.
Would definitely come back here again.

My wife and I spent four days in Seattle over Memorial weekend. We found the Hyatt at Olive 8 was a great hotel in a fantastic location. The hotel is very green with great amenities and an upscale restaurant. The room in the hotel was very comfortable and very modern with a very nice bathroom and shower area, including a smoked glass sliding door for the bathroom. The location of the hotel was excellently centered in the city and very close to all the touristy area's, and only two blocks or so away from the West Lake Link Station and the monorail to the Seattle Space Needle. We could not have been any happier with our entire experience with the hotel and in Seattle generally.

We spent three nights here and were overall pleased with our stay.
Pros:
-Location was fantastic! We were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go!
-Concierge was helpful with umbrella loaning and directions for getting to where we needed to be.
-Room had a nice city view and was both clean and spacious.

Cons:
-There were literally only two towels in the bathroom which for the two of us, wasn't enough. (I like to have one for my body and one to wrap around my wet hair while I get ready and my husband can make do with one.) We called and asked for extra towels to be brought up along with a tooth brush (I'd forgotten mine!) and they brought up the toothbrush but not the towels. And for washcloths, I do not like to re-use mine, I prefer a clean one each use. With only two washcloths, this wasn't possible. I had to re-use the one I washed my face with the night before when I showered the next morning and I hate that.
-The toiletries were never refilled/replaced during our stay. We ran out of shampoo and body wash on the second day.

Overall, we had a pleasant stay here and would very likely return again!
