Seattle, Seattle & Washington State

The hotel

A landmark property ideally located in Downtown Seattle, The Fairmont Olympic Hotel is one of the city’s best loved luxury hotels. Recently renovated, this hotel offers nearly a century of luxury service standards, while melding classic elegance with mid-century modern room décor. The AAA 4 Diamond Georgian Restaurant serves delicious French-inspired Northwest Cuisine, in the exquisite surrounds of Seattle’s premier dining room. There’s live jazz on Friday and Saturday nights, and even an exclusive space where up to 12 guests can relax and enjoy their own private dinner party. If you fancy something slightly more casual, head to Shuckers Oyster Bar to sample some fresh premium quality seafood and local artisan microbrews. The authentic carved oak panelling and 1930s tin ceiling make the Shuckers experience all the more unique!

We have stayed at this property before and did not feel we received the same value this time. The $9 bottle of water in the room and the $60 parking are fine, not to mention the cost of the room, but the service has to be there to go with them.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Fabulous!

This was such a beautiful elegant hotel. The rooms have been completely updated in mid-century style and everything was fresh and perfect. I and 2 friends went to Seattle for a birthday celebration. We could not have found a better place to stay!

We spent 2 nights here and had the best sleep ever! The room was clean, quiet and modern. The hotel is centrally located and allows you to walk everywhere. Pikes market is close as is the monorail to the Space Needle. We took the lite rail from the airport ($3 each),and walked up 2 blocks to the hotel. So convenient! Natalie was very welcoming… Read more

Pikes market is close as is the monorail to the Space Needle. We took the lite rail from the airport ($3 each),and walked up 2 blocks to the hotel. So convenient! Natalie was very welcoming at the front desk. They also have a house car to take you locally...should u choose not to walk. Be sure to check out the breakfast buffet at The Georgian ...it is excellent. We certainly would choose the Fairmont again! Read less

Wife and I had a very nice three night visit to attend my niece's graduation. Property, room, service and breakfast were all excellent. Very quiet. Must install grab bars in shower. Would like to have had higher water pressure in the shower.
