Lovely grand hotel. Felt safe and well cared for. The hotel is the perfect location, the staff friendly, the rooms clean the beds super comfortable. I had no complaints. It was a perfect stay for us. I will definitely return.

Based on our experience and that of our travelling colleagues, it has been our pleasure to have already recommended the Fairmont Olympic (and Seattle) to several of our friends.
Congratulations for providing Seattle with such a fine establishment staffed with personnel committed to giving outstanding customer service.
Apart front the outstanding facilities and overall room amenities, the assistance afforded by the Concierge desk and the staff of Shuckers & Georgian Restaurants, made for a truly remarkable stay at the Fairmont.
We will certainly be visiting Seattle in the future and look forward to once again staying at the Fairmont.

Great hotel to visit anytime. Try this great before or after a cruise. Try the specials in Shuckers. Staff is incredible. Go to Vons 1000 Spirits or pizza.
Do not forget to taste the wines. Bring an umbrella

We decided to spend our 30th Anniversary in Seattle. As a member of the Fairmont President's Club we chose the Fairmont Olympic. The Hotel was in a great location Downtown and was within walking distance to the Market and ferrys. Taxi's were redly available. The concierge were very helpful and made many reservations for us. Our stay was perfect.

We really enjoyed The Fairmont. The location was the best, right across the street from the light rail and within walking distance to the waterfront and Pike's Market. The hotel was beautiful. Nice clean rooms and extremely comfortable beds. Very nice swimming pool, hot tub and fitness center.

Room Tip: Great location in Seattle
