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 just got back from 2 nights at the Olympic. The four of us were having a weekend away without the kids. I could not recommend this hotel more.. The staff we awesome, the rooms were spotless, and the new renovations were amazing. On a hot day there is nothing like walking in off the street to the new lobby bar accompanied by the authentic Fairmont aroma in the air. Please be mindful most hotels in the country are suffering staffing shortages. A bit of patients and planning my time correctly really helped the already busy team. We will DEFINATELY be back!

Wonderful hotel in a great location downtown! The location is central to everything including shopping, Pike Place, restaurants, and you can easily walk or ride the rentable scooters around town. Gorgeous hotel inside with a fun bar and pool. Definitely will stay every time we come back to Seattle!

My daughter and I headed to Seattle for the first time for a little mother/daughter bonding. The Fairmont Olympic did not disappoint. The hotel is just beautiful. A very welcoming lobby area that includes rich architecture and the fantastic open , oval Olympic Bar. I love books and there are a plethora of interesting art books placed throughout the lobby near all of the great seating options. There is a small library within the lobby area to give you some privacy and reduce the noise level of the lively bar. The best part of our stay was the interaction with the courteous reception desk staff that were very accommodating and pleasant to work with. The George Restaurant was also a breath of fresh air, with great service, great ambiance and great food. I also had interaction with room service and maintenance service staff which were equally pleasant to work with. It was a very relaxing place to be in a very busy city. Looking forward to being able to stay here in the future. Read less
