“Great location, nice and new.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and our room had the most spectacular view of the fireworks. Easy to get to from the airport by the light-rail and sitting at the end of downtown makes is accessible to all the places.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

After spending three nights in Mt Rainier National Park, we spent two nights here on July 19 & 20. The contrast was striking. We stayed in Room #9 at the National Park Inn with no TV, telephone, and air conditioning... Room #1760 at the Hyatt with all of the modern conveniences. Both were nice experiences, just radically different.

I do a reasonable amount of business travel. Frequently, service in the heart of major cities is professional vs friendly - efficient vs personable. Here I found the front desk to be particularly welcoming and the concierge was helpful as well. The room was large, comfortable, and - as others have mentioned - incredibly modern.

The location was excellent... half a mile to the waterfront and pike place... four blocks to light rail (allowing easy access to points south including the airport)... two blocks to the monorail to Space Needle and EMP... shopping all around.

My only negative comment (and it would be minor) would be related to noise. I did occasionally think that someone was knocking on our door when they were really knocking on the door of the adjoining room. Conversation in the halls did travel, but not significantly more than most hotels.

All in all, a good experience. We would definitely be willing to return.

We enjoyed a two day stay at Olive 8 in Seattle. The location was perfect, close to restaurants, shopping, tourist sites, etc. parking was very expensive, but it is everywhere in metro Seattle. Room was well appointed, spacious, and clean. Staff were very accommodating and friendly.

I travel a fair amount for business and this is the nicest hotel that I've stayed at in quite some time. The exterior decor is striking. The front desk staff was incredibly accommodating and helpful as was the concierge. The rooms were very clean and without odor. The toiletries are good quality, too. On the last night, my sink drain backed up with some foul ooze. I notified the front desk upon check out and was immediately provided a discount on my stay. Very, very nice place.

The Olive 8 Hyatt is a really nice hotel green hotel. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfy. The water pressure was great and no issues with sound (not sure what the other reviewer's experience was related to water pressure and noise). The staff is very friendly and helpful. This was a local weekend getaway for me and my husband to see a show in Seattle. We really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this hotel to out-of-towners along with people local to the Seattle area. The location is near the major shopping area in downtown and near Pike Place, the waterfront and to the monorail for a quick ride to Seattle Center.

Was here for 3 nights for a tech conference in July 2013. Had a wonderful time, very knowledgeable staff and their concierge was excellent.

Our wifi was free because of the conference but warning to other travelers, wifi is not usually free. I think it's $8.95/day.

Location was 2 blocks away from Convention Center and a short walk to the major shopping streets and Pike Place.

Rooms were spacious and super nice!

Perfect place for business travelers, as they have a large business station (ports/printer) on a big desk right in the room.

To fully enjoy this hotel you need to share their commitment to the "green" movement. Everything is oriented around saving energy and resources as gracefully as possible. Examples: to power up lights and AC, your room card must be inserted in a socket. The "refrigerator" is an unpowered insulated box.

Our "corner king" room was huge, with a walk-in shower (no door needed) and a very useful desk, with outlets on top and even an hdmi connection to the tv.

Housekeeping is excellent, prompt, and spotless.

Parking is expensive, but you're downtown in a big city, so what would you expect?

Room Tip: Try the corner king room for great views and space
