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!

My adult children and I stayed for 4 nights at the Fairmont Olympic in downtown Seattle. The hotel is beautiful although we were surprised by the new renovation and lobby bar. I missed the old world style, but the new lobby and bar is a beautiful design. Service was great as always.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Not worth the expense. Valet parking was excellent. Expensive but good!

Very expensive for no room service. I mean even the most basic room service was unavailable to us even upon our request. Disappointed in cost versus quality. Spa staff was very rude. Tried to shop and the gentlemen was not helpful and very rude.

Lovely stay for two nights as our trip to Arizona was cancelled by Delta at the last minute. Good location and staff very attentive. Unfortunately the dining arrangements didn’t suit us as we prefer to eat at a standard height table.

We had a great evening of drinks with another couple. The Founders Club was fun and a great way to kick off the holidays. However, upon review of my credit card statement I discovered I was charged twice. In my quest to clear up the mistake I was told because we split the bill my card was inadvertently charged twice and it would be up to me to track down the other half. No offer to help in this reconciliation. I will be following up with American Express instead, but this is not the service I am accustomed to at the Fairmont. Read less

This hotel is great; in a historic building so windows open which is nice to get some fresh air. I had a suite and it was very nice and I really liked the layout. The new bar in the main lobby area is excellent as well.
