“Nice enough hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

My partner and I stayed here this last weekend with friends. The location for this hotel is great right by shopping and restaurants and an easy walk down to Pike Street Markets. Rooms are quite modern and clean, but hotel lacks any sort of ambiance. We will be staying at The Fairmont Olympic when next in Seattle

I stayed at Olive 8 for one night in December 2012 for a girls' night on the town. We had a great stay. My gripes would be that parking and Wi-Fi are at a premium, but that seems fairly standard for downtown Seattle (although the Paramount hotel nearby has free Wi-Fi). The room itself was very clean and thoughtfully laid out. The bed was very comfortable. The desk staff and room service staff were very friendly. The location is great, walking distance to most downtown/Pike Place Market locations. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: As far as I can tell, the hotel doesn't really have a view (maybe the condos up above do?).

Not only is it well into the new millenium, but a whole new baktun, and, REALLY??? Uptodate LEED beautiful hotel, great staff and attentiiveness, but would not stay here again because it feels soooooo petty that they charge for wifi.

First time stay at the Hyatt at Olive 8. Perfect location in central Seattle, not overly noisy, and the rooms were immaculate. Very modern and spacious rooms - I didn't have the chance to visit the pool, spa or restaurant, although all three looked nice. We got an excellent rate on the room. The hotel is within walking distance of theatre (Paramount Theatre is literally across the road), shopping and tourist attractions, although the walk to the Space Needle and EMP might be a bit more than most would care to walk. Easy access from freeway. Clean, modern and convenient - what more could you want in a vibrant city like Seattle?

Olive 8 is my favorite hotel in Seattle. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Positives
-Modern, clean hotel that feels very new and fresh
-Location, location, location! It is perfectly situated within walking distance to everything - Pike's Market, Pacific Place, restaurants, shopping, the convention center,etc.
-I'm big on cleanliness, and this place is so crisp and clean!

Negatives
-Only negative (and I'm forgiving them for this one since I was so impressed by everything else during me stay) is that if you have a room near the elevator it can be a bit noisy at times. Request a room as far from the elevator as possible

Thanks got a great stay Olive 8!

After having reservations for over 2 weeks and checking in late on our arrive day the room we had already paid for wasn't available. We were given a room with 2 queen beds. The beds were Full size not Queen.

We got a wake up at 4am call when we did not order one. There isn't a front desk button on the hotels phone. I had to have the restaurant to transfer me to them.

The hotel sits on the corner of 8th & olive. The city bus station sits outside the front door of the hotel. The front door is also crowded with homeless people that wait for you to leave and follow you.

I'm so excited that you had such a good stay here at the Hyatt at Olive 8. Our central downtown location makes it so easy for our guests to site-see and shop. With Pacific Place and Westlake Center Malls less than a 10 minute walk, and the Space Needle and Pacific Science Center only a short Monorail ride away, there is plenty to easily entertain anyone looking to experience Seattle. Hope to see you back soon!
