My husband and I spontaneously decided that we wanted a fun, romantic night out. I had heard about Olympia because of a wedding we went to last year and had a lot of fun and remembered what a great experience we had during the wedding. Not only was the wedding a lot of fun, but when it was over, everybody headed over to the bar where there was a DJ. We all requested a ton of songs and I am not sure if he played them all, but regardless, it was a great time. The bar looks AWESOME! I love all the blue and the lighting in there is great... it's a very luxe looking place with a bit of a young hip vibe. Anyway, we stayed on a Friday night and had reserved a whirlpool room. WOW! So nice!! A tub fit for two! ;) Before we spent any time in the room though, we had dinner in the restaurant and it was absolutely delicious. The service was great as well. We had a very nice waitress with a great, up-beat personality. She made us feel really special. Then we headed to the bar again. This time there was Karaoke! And it seemed like they had more lights in there, too. We had a great time and met a few of the 'regulars' and the Karaoke DJ was a lot of fun -- and what a great voice!
As for the room itself, yea, it was a bit out-dated looking but it was very clean and everything was in working order. Why do people complain about the furniture in the room? I couldn't care less (unless it's broken). I just think that is such a silly thing for people to focus on when this place has EVERYTHING you could want in a night or weekend away at such an affordable rate. The whirlpool room was $169 for us, as I had a discount. I also had services in the O Spa the next morning and it was absolutely wonderful. I especially loved the Eucalyptus room in the Spa! Whew! Made me feel great after that relaxing hot rock massage. All in all, this is a great place if you don't want to spend a ton of money just for a night or weekend away. I am truly shocked to see any negative reviews. My husband and I will definitely be returning! Maybe on a regular basis! ;)
p.s. The mattresses are like sleeping in heaven. I wish ours at home was this comfortable! I slept like a baby!
