We stayed at downtown Seattle for just the last night of our trip. I had visited Seattle before and stayed at the Grand Hyatt a few years ago. The Hyatt at Olive 8 is obviously designed to be a modern and hip hotel but more "accessible" to the public. I thought the lobby was quite bare. Room was nicely appointed except the following: 1) room noise - the door/lock system was fairly noisy (or may be because the walls were thin). Every time someone opens/closes the door you hear a loud click and bang. You can also hear faint traffic noise from the main street. 2) we only had a Queen size bed (I would not pay $280++ for a Queen size for two). 3) shower/faucet had very low flow of water. No bath tub in our room. This hotel is a green hotel but personally I like the option of taking a bath.
4) The duvet felt cheap - reminds me of a Courtyard hotel where you just get a bed sheet as duvet. They had a back up blanket (cotton) in the closet. As a Hyatt hotel and sleeping in cool weather, I’d expect they at least have a down duvet or wool blanket.
Valet parking was $40 a night which I guess is expected at any major city. Service of the hotel was good. Too bad we didn't use the spa/pool sounds like there are a lot of positive reviews.
The highlight of our stay was our breakfast. Restaurant was busy but food came out quickly. Definitely the best French Toast I've had. My husband had an omelet which was very good. Coffee was excellent as expected. Would definitely return for the restaurant but not to stay.
