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!

Check-in was fast and convenient. The room was great. Good layout. Clean and fresh feeling. Handy desk with easy to reach power outlets. Comfortable bed with nice linens. Bathroom was attractive and a good size. The hotel location downtown was great as well. It was a short walk to many sights and the Link Light Rail station was just a block away.

We stayed here one night and we were in room 1134 (an executive suite). The room was nice, everything was as expected. Except there were sirens all night long.

We had an early morning flight and left an hour early (4am) because it was so loud. I would not recommend that room to anyone. Read less

Location is perfect for walking around downtown, pike place farmer's market, seattle center, tons of restaurants/bars, and pioneer square. Bikes and scooters are also available! We enjoyed the Olympic Bar which had a cider available made with honey from the top of the hotel! Staff was friendly, room was cleaned and bottled water was replaced each day. Workout center was relatively small but had two pelotons available. We did not have a chance to use pool or hot-tub. Read less
