Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle

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!

It definitely has the feel of a special occasion hotel. Read less

I recently traveled from Arizona to stay at the Fairmont in Seattle to celebrate my niece's college graduation. I must say that the service that we received from every single associate was stellar! From the front desk administrative team to the housekeeping and bell services, every associate that we came into contact with was so friendly, warm and welcoming. I'm an Accor member and have stayed at several Fairmont hotels this past year and while I certainly have no complaints at all about the other Fairmont hotels, the team at the Fairmont in Seattle is at the top of my list and I give them an A+ for their hospitality! We received an upgrade upon check-in and the room was beautifully appointed and exceptionally clean and crisp. They even delivered a bottle of wine and chocolates to celebrate my niece's graduation. I will never stay at another hotel when in Seattle. Thank you so much to Renee and everyone else at the Olympic Fairmont for making our stay so special! Read less

Great hotel, big clean room. Perfect location. Both dinner and breakfast were also good. Gym has a peloton which is good but the bike seat kept going down…. Probably needs some maintenance. Other than that my stay was food. Be prepared for a $50 parking fee!

The Fairmont Olympic Seattle never disappoints. This is my 4th multi-night stay and the first since they renovated the lobby, and post-Covid. The whole atmosphere has only gotten better. This is a prime example on how to keep an historic hotel relevant and accessible. Rooms are awesome as always and I love the expanded lobby bar. Their bar… Read more

This is a prime example on how to keep an historic hotel relevant and accessible. Rooms are awesome as always and I love the expanded lobby bar. Their bar staff is meticulous and work hard to keep drinks coming with very short waits. Read less

Every couple of months during my husband's deployment we head to Seattle for an adventure day and we stay at the Fairmont.

We really like the location of your hotel as well as the food, the rooms, the staff, the luxury and the pool! My 3-year-old loves to swim and this pool is the only one we've found where she can navigate it on her own because there's a really shallow end. Thanks for having such a family friendly hotel in the middle of the city! Read less
