We stayed for three nights as a treat as we stayed at medium range hotel on route 101. The room is luxurious and the breakfast was great too. The concierge was able to book us a table at sky city at short notice, we tried booking ourselves but we're told they are fully booked.

Iv been staying at this hotel since 2010 and now everytime I come to Seattle we stay here! You can't beat the location, within walking distance of pike place, macys and all the shopping or a short taxi to Bellview for more shopping. The hotel is historic large rooms and clean service is always good bit very busy during the... More

Stayed here two bites in August. The room was on the second floor and did not have a view, but was very spacious. It had a large bathroom with tub/shower combination. There was a safe in the closet. We asked the concierge how far away the original home of UPS was, and he said it was about 5-6 blocks; but... More

The beauty of the Fairmont along with the wonderful staff made our trip to Seattle so much more enjoyable and relaxing. We loved learning about the history of the Fairmont building. The concierge desk made excellent suggestions for our first time visit to the city. The Georgian had a wonderful breakfast buffet that was well worth the money. Shuckers Restaurant... More

Nicely modernized historic property with comfortable accommodations and a convenient central business district location. Monorail and shopping are an easy few blocks walk to the north and the waterfront a few blocks downhill to the west.

Conveniently located in downtown Seattle, the Fairmont Olympic is one of the last of the old-style grand hotels, with an historic building and ornate lobby. They just don't build them like this any more. Clean, well-appointed room on the fourth floor had some early morning traffic noises that were noticeable. The breakfast buffet was marvelous, and the service impeccable. That... More

First let us count the good points - nice central location, good brand, and nice looking building. That's it. We stayed there 10th and 11th August. The room which we were allotted first was smelly and faced a dirty terrace on 2nd floor. We complained and were shifted to 9th floor. The room smelled better but the view was another... More

My wife and I stayed here overnight in Room 218. The hotel has a very elegant lobby and other public areas, and the staff is friendly, helpful and professional. Our room was very well appointed, and the bed as very comfortable - up to Fairmont's excellent standards. One odd feature, the toilet height was very low - uncomfortably so for... More

Pam and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont! The photo above does it justice! It is a beautiful old building that has been brought into the 21st century! The service is great! The staff is well trained and very accommodating. We had an "Executive Suite" with an adjoining room! The suite was merely a regular room divided by... More

Beautifully appointed rooms - nice bath robes , slippers - they thought of everything. One problem - our room could not be cooled so they sent a repairman who fixed but also brought us a fan. Not what I expected for this price but none the less ... Great location and they have a car service that takes you within... More
