“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The Hyatt at Olive is convienient to the convention center, north of Public market. A modern hotel with very nice rooms and great corner rooms, go for them. Large with modern bathrooms and really a lot of space. The service is perfect, especially the front desk is perfect. Concierge is ok, not very much local. Because so many restaurants in the area I did not try the restaurant, the bar is good for a late night drink. Over all I can recommend the hotel for sure

Room Tip: Corner rooms are great!

Stayed here as part of a conference. My room was not quite ready when I arrived. The front desk comped me a drink at the bar while I waited for my room. Great move and very much appreciated.

Great job all the way around. Perfect location in town. Just a short walk to the light rail system to the airport. Great service and food. Rooms were comfortable. The event services personnel did a phenomenal job managing the conference.

I'd come back for sure.

We stayed as a family for several days. Our room was very spacious and especially clean. The staff was courteous and helpful. The restaurant was lovely and the food quite nice. We were in walking distance to anything we wanted to do or see. I would recommend this hotel.

The service was wonderful and every request was taken care of. We had a friend that could not make it, so made sure accommodate our needs. In a very nice area and close to alot of the things we wanted to see. We would highly recommend this hotel and would stay again.

We stayed here on the last leg of our trip - early November. We were impressed with their online check in system and we got a text to confirm our check-in and room number. We stayed on the 11th Floor with a view of ..... buildings. Unfinished/construction sites. We faced 8th Avenue. Nothing exciting to look at but we didn't mind this.

Despite online check in we went to the desk to collect our key card. There was water at reception for guests and umbrellas for bad weather that we could use (plus!). It was very cloudy but we never once used the umbrella. We were surprised how dark the skies could get and still not rain. The room was big with all the usual amenities you would expect from a good hotel including tea/coffee. The cleaner did forget to replace some of the toiletries and there were no sanitary bags in the bathroom.

No free Wi-Fi but you can connect to this in the lobby for free. Water pressure and hot/cold taps were not the best. Sometimes the taps went cold when we wanted them hot. Odd. No breakfast with the room rate but we found plenty of places to eat in as the hotel is centrally located and there is a Starbucks every couple of blocks. You can walk around the city easily and you can get the monorail from Westlake Station on 5th Avenue to Seattle Center, where the Space Needle is.

Parking for 24 hours was $34.00, with an extra $3.23 parking tax and an extra city parking tax of $4.25. We've all seen the commercial where the Dad asks his daughter the sum of two numbers, she answers correctly and then he has to tell her she is wrong because she didn't figure in all of the extra taxes. I wouldn't normally complain about this but there is a public parking lot across the street for half the price, and the hotel next door offers parking for $28 -- so the Olive 8 clearly has it wrong.
This is our second visit to this hotel. The first time we stayed here the valet left our car lights on and drained the battery by mistake -- which means we didn't have to pay for parking. Had I known I would pay $41.00 to park my car -- we wouldn't have stayed at this hotel again.
It's in a great location, it is clean and the staff are very helpful. Too bad about the cost of parking.

Green Features: It is environmentally friendly to the earth. The parking fees, however, are causing a hole in consumers wallets.

Thank you for your review; your comfort and happiness is our number one priority here at the Hyatt at Olive 8. Please accept our sincerest apologies that your stay was anything less than perfect. While we do realize that the parking cost is expensive, it is competative with the downtown area. There are other lots and options that we are more than happy to point out for guests who choose not to valet park. Our goal is always to exceed your expectations and any opportunity to make a situation better for you is something we would gladly assist with. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention as we always appreciate any feedback that will help us grow and improve. We hope this will not deter you from choosing Hyatt Hotels and Resorts in the future, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Stay here and avoid the overpriced Regency across the street!

The service is better and this pace has a bar with local craft brews and a happy hour! Can't beat $4 20oz drafts on a Friday night after 10pm! And it sure beats the $20 Crown Royal at Ruth's Chris at the Regency.

The rooms are great and the front desk is superbly trained!

We are already looking to go back to this hotel in February!

Green Features: Total green hotel with key card activated lights and low flow fixtures. Great job!
