Thank you Patrick Allen for taking my call and being so willing to help me welcome a close friend to Seattle by adding a special treat and note to her room before her arrival. It's individuals like you that keep the spirit of hospitality and the element of surprise alive in our industry!

Had a wonderful stay at a beautiful hotel. The staff and service was exemplary. Very spacious clean rooms. Restaurants are very good and make sure you go to the bar. The bartender had very good advice on where to eat. You are downtown, so there are loud sirens and street noise.

This hotel is so different than the "big box" hotels like Hilton and Marriott. It has a lobby that is luxurious and grand. It has the most beautiful woodwork and an historic feel to it, unique and welcoming. As long as I can afford it, I would stay here every time I'm in Seattle.

When you arrive at the hotel the doormen open your car door, remove your luggage,and have it ready to take up to your room in the blink of an eye. Upon check in, staff are lovely, always asking how your trip was, and what they can do to accommodate you. The rooms have just been remodelled and are beautiful. I... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel for a week during a work conference and we were so very impressed with everything. The rooms have recently been renovated, their hotel staff is professional and obviously well-versed in their roles, food was amazing and the location was great for out of town guests to walk and explore the city. For the... More

Fairmont Olympic in Seattle is extraordinary. We had a suite which was very comfortable, quiet and very clean. We booked with the Rocky Mountaineer Goldleaf service and the Olympic is by far the best Fairmont Hotel I've had the pleasure of experiencing.

Our family enjoyed several nights at this Fairmont property in August. We shared adjoining rooms, an Executive King and a double that were spacious and well renovated. Make sure you sign up for the Presidents Reward Club so that you don't have to pay for wifi. My children enjoyed the indoor solarium style pool where we had a nice casual... More

Out with the soft yellows and cream colors and in the the cool blue and gray. The hotel was a great place to stay like I remember years ago. You can't beat the location for shopping, eating, and Fishermans Wharf. While here visit the Georgian for breakfast or brunch and Shuckers for dinner. Great pool with lap lane and workout... More
