Stayed here for three nights early May at the start of three week tour and loved every minute, the hotel and staff are delightful in every aspect.

Great location, wonderful rooms and service as you would expect from this World Class Hotel.

Congratulations to management and the team.

Room Tip: Every room we saw was excellent and designed for comfort

The Fairmont Olympic Seattle is a world-class hotel, in quality of service, attention to detail, and value for the price. The service is excellent, the food wonderful and the rooms are so quiet and well-furnished that I enjoyed every night. I have been to other Fairmont hotels, and the Olympic measures up. I was attending a nearby conference and it is close within walking distance, with many amenities along the route on Pike Street.

Room Tip: Rooms even on the mid-floors are quiet.

Another wonderful stay at the Fairmont Olympic. I am a big fan of Fairmont Hotels (have stayed at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Winnipeg, Lake Louise & Calgary in the last couple months) and they never disappoint. Stayed here in Seattle last fall, and once again, we were impressed during this stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and of course, the hotel is classic and with all required amenities. Great location in downtown Seattle.The hotel has a house car and can assist in getting you to and from downtown locations..so when it started raining and we didn't have our rainjackets with us, they picked us up and lent us an umbrella for the afternoon. We loved the happy hour at their restaurant, Shuckers….1/2 price oysters, salmon sliders and other great options, including drinks. We had come to Seattle to welcome our son home from an Army deployment to Afghanistan. The exact dates we needed to be in Seattle were unknown until the last minute, and it turned out we needed a couple more nights than anticipated. The hotel (and all of Seattle) was totally sold out & we were getting nervous about not having a place to stay, but they worked with us & when a last minute cancellation occurred, they were able to get us two more nights! We were so grateful and our son was so happy to have a wonderful place to stay! So now we are an even bigger fan of Fairmont Hotels and the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. Many thanks!!

If you like classic properties with lots of history and large rooms look no further. Fairmont quality service compliments this grand, 90 year old property in the central business district of Seattle. Nothing modern or contemporary, although bathrooms are updated and electric plugs for your devices are plentiful. If slick and modern are your thing, skip this property. But if you like a traditionally furnished historic property this will satisfy you in most every way. Note that Seattle is very hilly and it can be a serious hike up to the hotel from the water front.

Room Tip: Many rooms are actually suites, see about an upgrade.

This is a place where they call you by your last name ("this is the front desk may I help you Mr. Smith"?) throughout the property. Valets jump to open the door for you, concierge desk was very helpful. It's close to many interesting points so walking is easy. Room has high ceilings and was well appointed. Price was high, but fair. Valet parking (the only option) was pricey at $42 per night. I think that is unreasonable. Add for a tip each time the car is brought around you can easily spend $100+ for parking over a weekend stay.
