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!

Exemplary hotel, with fantastic service. You’ll love it, even though the Accor rewards program his a joke. You should still stay because of the great room, great service, nice gym, historic building and ideal downtown location.

The room was beautiful - I understand that the hotel has been recently renovated and everything was clean and tastefully decorated. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the staff went out of their way to help our family.
