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!

This was a nice place to stay at. I had absolutely no problems here. I had a place to iron my clothes, a TV that I barely used, and a big bed to pass out on. I didn't explore the hotel too much. If I ever visited Seattle, I'd probably check this place out again.

Upon arrival at 11pm I was put in the wrong room type. I opted to wait for the right room rather than unpack for one night. It took 2 more phone calls and 45 minutes to get it fixed.

I picked the hotel because Covid was just starting to be a thing and I wanted luxury and room service. The food was good most meals. One was a disaster. Upon arrival at 11pm I was put in the wrong room type. I opted to wait for the right room rather than unpack for one night. It took 2 more phone calls and 45 minutes to get it fixed. I was told it was my travel agents fault. My final bill was incorrect and didn’t reflect the Signature package of one free night. After 2-3 calls was told to call my TA. And that they were shorthanded due to Covid. The room was nice enough. No complaints there. Just the mixup on room type and billing which I gave up on. On the upside. I lucked into an appointment at Penelope Beauty Bar. Had an amazing haircut and hope to return (to the Beauty Bar) Read less

Although valet is PRICEY, everything else wasn’t too shabby. The rooms were clean, nice bathroom and comfy bed. They check people in with a temperature device, and the staff couldn’t be anymore friendlier. If people call it a 5 star hotel, I call it a 4 1/2 star hotel. Yet the stay here was what I expected, wonderful. I would stay here again if… Read more

Had everything we needed. Excellent service from staff. The parking is pricy, but there are 3 street spots in front of the hotel that you should keep your eye on. The hotel is a little older but the service is great.
