I travel for work about 20 weeks out of the year and stay at different hotels around the world. The Hyatt at Olive 8 is my all time favorite for business for several reasons. The rooms are always clean and the design is fantastic (large vanity, outlets, desk layout etc), the hotel restaurant is good which means you don't have to worry about gross unhealthy room service unlike other hotel chains. The location is great for getting around on foot or by car and the service is amazing. Last but not least the gym! I could spend hours in there which is nearly impossible to say at other hotel gyms. love love love this place. Hope the prices stay reasonable because I will be back!

This is a new hotel with new facilities and modern amenities inside and outside of your room. The 20 meter swimming pool is the best hotel pool we ever enjoyed. So is the Gym. The staff is very attentive to all your needs and the concierge knowledgeable and helpfull.

One of the better Hyatt Hotels, trendy with a distinctively "green" touch, nice and modern rooms, very good breakfast, friendly service, and a superb swimming pool. The location is central yet quiet (as long as you choose one of the upper floor rooms). As others mentioned, the (inexpensive) airport train stops just a few blocks from the hotel. All in all a very good stay for a reasonable rate.

I stayed at the Hyatt Olive 8 with some friends last weekend. The location is very convenient - about a two minute walk to the nearest restaurants and about five to 10 minutes to Pike Place market on foot. The fitness facility is one of the best that I've ever experienced in a hotel, including a full length pool for swimming laps.

My one criticism is that I booked a room with two beds for three people, which was confirmed by the hotel, and when I arrived they only had a room with a king bed. When I requested a roll-away (since three of us were not going to squeeze into one bed), we were charged an extra $15. Also, parking is $40 per night. We chose to park on the street instead, since it is free from 8 pm on Saturday through until early Monday morning.

Courtesy of employees really stood out - very nice people. Basic room was nice, large and comfortable (green hotel). Would like to have had a couch or more comfortable chair in the room. Lobby is modern with a bar/restaurant and sitting area, nothing major - clean. Located just a couple of blocks from all of the tourist attractions. Cabs are plentiful and actually enjoyable experience. Hotel has a spa and pool. Did not eat there. Would stay again even though they didnt have a business center.

My wife and I stayed there 5 mights. Room was very retro and very nice. What impressed us most was the exercise room...fantastic! Staff was friendly and prices surprisingly affordable.

This was the first hotel of our vacation in Seattle. The location is good. Walk to Pikes Market, about 20 minutes. A block from the high end mall and shops. Cheesecake factory was around the corner. The room was Hyatt quality, really comfortable bed and they supply you with everything you need. Very Comfortable and what you expect from Hyatt. My only issues: A cooler they called a refrigerator didn't work and our food spoiled but they sent up milk at no cost for cereal we brought. The parking was ridiculously overpriced, about $40.00 per day, the lot across the street was $25.00. They make you pay for internet which I find absurd. At these rates it should be complimentary like most hotels. Even low end hotels offer free wifi, no excuse they make you pay other then another way to gouge the guest for that extra buck. Last complaint was the salt water pool which was heated to 80' was cold. Only little kids were in and we lasted about 5 minutes, it was way to cold.
Overall, I recommend this hotel if your a business traveler or have money to burn. After all this is a Hyatt so you know it's going to be expensive. As for traveling here with a 1 year old child, not recommended since cheaper hotels offer the same amenities.
