We had dinner there tonight (I had a tomato salad followed by scollaps with pork belly and my wife had a crab salad followed by halibut). The food was excellent, nice surroundings, comfortable seating and to top it all off, excellent service. We were served by Keegan, I just wish all restaurants had a 'Keegan', for his amazing and friendly attitude, spending time to explain the menu in detail, extremely helpful and otherwise excellent service. I highly recommend spending some time there for dinner.
We had a large group. They got us all on the same floor. We ate at the restaurant and for our group it was great. It was also convenient to/from the airport. Lobby bar makes a nice cocktail. And the price wasn't terrible. Overall great experience would return.
This was my first time staying at a Fairmont Hotel, suffice to say it won't be my last. The staff here at the Fairmont Olympic went above and beyond to accomodate us, the service you get here is exceptional.
I was here this week for work for two nights. I had last been here in 2016. Overall, this place is still good with a good location. Everybody was very proud of the new bar in the lobby, which unfortunatiely I didnt have time to use. Breakfast in the George was good with plenty of options and high quality food, good service. Rooms were comfortable, but here are my quibbles. This hotel was over $500 a night. At that level I expect certain things. First, there should be some sort of coffee makers in the room. Nespresso would be preferable but Keurig acceptable. Next, at this level, there should be daily housekeeping. I completely understand that there are staffing issue, but at this level of hotel that should be solved. That said, they said if you wanted daily housekeeping, to call and they would do it. So I called in the morning before I left for my meetings, and the person said they would provide housekeeping. I got back to my room at 8:30PM and they just never came. It was tool late by that time so I just dealt, but if the policy is you have to ask, and you ask, then they should do it, especially if they say they will. So I was disappointed by that. Overall, still a nice hotel, but some things to fix to make it great.…
Bell service was great, as was laundry. Although kind and courteous several people at the front desk had accents too heavy to understand. The phones in the room were atrocious—so quiet I couldn’t hear when I called anywhere in the hotel, and such poor reception that I couldn’t walk more than 10 feet from the base without it completely giving out. We had a corner suite. The pillows were lumpy, old, not feather/down. Seriously uncomfortable. Duvet was barely enough to keep me warm (we stayed in June). They do not have separate bath and shower rooms anywhere in the hotel. We had only a shower. It was a good shower in terms of space, cleanliness, water pressure and shower head size. The water was hot enough for my taste, which is hard to do, so kudos to them for that. The hotel bar is located right between the entrance and reception desk, which means navigating through the crowd to check in. The hotel’s main restaurant, The George, is gorgeous and the food was excellent. However they are closed on Sundays and Mondays, which was extremely inconvenient. Room service was fine but closes at 10pm, which I wouldn’t have expected. On the night we arrived—with a special-needs child—we did not arrive until 9:30. I told the front desk we had been traveling all day to get to our baby’s hospital appointment, had to go there before check in, hadn’t eaten and could they please call the kitchen and let them know we would need to do a last minute room service order. By the time we actually got into our room it was 9:50. I called literally the moment we walked in the door and was told the kitchen had already begun shut down, and even though it wasn’t actually 10pm they would not be able to make us food. Honestly, I’m appalled. I would understand if it was after 10pm, but it wasn’t even their official close time, and even knowing our situation they weren’t willing to help. My husband wanted to launch and discrimination complaint and I think maybe he was right.…
Great location, they have a separate spa penelopeandthebeautybar.com which i recommend. You can tell some parts of the hotel are dated and some remodeled. They have a urban experience fee of 29$ per night which you can't find what it for on their site and when I was checking it they made it seem voluntary. So upon my departure I was surprised to see the charge. Over night parking was $70 and we had to wait an hour to have them pull the car up on sunday. We had I would say bad but really no service when we tried to sit near the bar and grab a drink on a Saturday night. Looked like it would be a beautiful place for a large event space. The pool area was nice, it had dry saunas in the locker rooms, the fitness area looked nice and they had update bikes and equipment.
From the moment I walked in I was surrounded by luxury, beauty, and white glove cleanliness! I checked in a bit early due to an early arrival with no issues, every person I encountered was friendly and helpful with no expectations. Truly an experience, this hotel is a 10+, I travel for business so experiencing a top-notch hotel is a remarkable experience. Our business event (3 days) was exceptionally catered, food was outstanding. Breakfast at St. George was fabulous! Minutes from downtown Pike's Place, posh grocery store right across the street. Wow what an experience. Thank you!
This hotel is so fancy!! The decor is fabulous and I enjoyed all the amenities! Especially the gym. It’s better than any hotel gym I have been to. The speakeasy had great drinks and a very friendly staff!
This hotel is located walking distance to all the action downtown from Pike's Market to Lumen Field. It is a gorgeous hotel with beautiful rooms and excellent service. We visited the pool, it had a very pretty glass roof that brought in the light and made it feel very open and airy.
The service at Fairmont Olympic Hotel is absolutely fantastic. From the moment we arrived the bell staff (I wish I remembered their names) were absolutely courteous and friendly. The front desk staff was excellent as well, in particular Laura (I think that was her name) who checked us in was extremely helpful and is a spectacular employee. The same applies to the wonderful Scottish lady who was at the front desk in the morning around 9am of June 16th as well. I’d also like to recognize the lovely elderly Asian male in room dining server who delivered our wine yesterday, he was such a genuine and kind soul. Overall, the hotel itself is stunning to look at and with such excellent service, I will be returning here each time I stay in Seattle.
