Hyatt Olive 8
June 29-30, 2013

We enjoyed the modern design. It prides itself as a "green" hotel. A classy hotel. Good bed. Good breakfast and other meal can be eaten in the restaurant on main floor. There are a lot of great restaurants within walking distance. As an upper end hotel the cost is also upper ended.

We enjoyed our time here.

Chose to stay at this property because of it's location, nearby Capitol Hill whilst also being close to the city. There is no self parking so you have to pay around $40+ including tax and tips what a joke. I know you can park across the road and other places, but i want the security of parking on property. Sadly not here. The room was modern however the housekeeping had alot to be desired. They consistently on two cleanings did not replace ANY of the toiletries, the first day I left empty bottles in the bin. They weren't replaced. The second day, I had to call reception to get toiletries and finished these left them CLEARLY on the makeup table, they took them away and again NEVER REPLACED them. I would have expected so much more for a Hyatt property NEVER EVER again, this place is a joke. The gym and pool were overrun by kids. I think there are residences here or just lots of kids everywhere. It's horrible. I have a choice when I travel and as a Gold Passport Member and regular traveller, this is definitely off the list. Don't ruin your holiday and choose somewhere else - the Hilton or Homewood Suites nearby are probably good choices.

I liked the design of the rooms and their bathroom door. It was clean and decent . The hotel staff were friendly. Location was awesome. the most important is it was new not an outdated hotel. The price was a bit over the range. Not too much noise which was important for us. Will visit again if find it more reasonable in price.

Typical Hyatt- nice, clean, very comfortable rooms. Also, great location - just 7 short blocks to Pike Market and 3 blocks from the airport train. This one however, did not have a doorman and it showed. Anyone could walk in. We stayed over a weekend and were awakened at 4am to noise in the hallway. My husband walked into the hallway and saw 2 sketchy individuals "doing the deed" in the adjacent hallway. Clearly, they had been out partying and did not have a room in the hotel. Or, they were crashing with a friend and couldn't get into the room. Does it matter?

We didn't tell the hotel because they were sketchy characters and didn't want to start any trouble this far from home. So, it's not the hotel's fault because they didn't know, but I'm sure if could have been prevented either by requiring a room key for the elevator or having a doorman. After the weekend, we didn't have any other disturbances.

I booked the Hyatt Olive8 after seeing views on YouTube and seeing that it had a green focus and is LEED certified it sounded like a sensible place to stay. I was not disappointed in any way. I've been to a few Hyatt's across the globe but this one seemed less corporate and more down to earth with very friendly staff.
The room was fairly conservative in it's design but it had everything I needed. Thankfully they got rid of the usual overpriced minibar so the refrigerator was empty and usable for any purchases you bring back to the room from the mini-mart across the road. The bed was on the soft side but really comfortable and plenty of pillows to choose from, about 5-6 on the bed from memory.
The restaurant on the ground level features some local favourites and has a casual bit friend atmosphere. Staff never seemed rushed and were happy to have a chat which was really nice. The concierge happily arranged a last minute tour for me when I own tour booking fell through at the last minute. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room so you have a view

Very nice, clean, well-located hotel with excellent service. It's a bit on the expensive side, but worth it for a nice downtown hotel. Located within walking distance to pretty much all the downtown attractions. Great facilities including a salt water pool and very nice gym.

We really enjoyed this hotel. Great location, easy walking distance to all of the downtown attractions. Rooms were very clean, modern and new. Restaurant was pricey, but nice. Great Hyatt option and more contemporary than the Grand Hyatt.
