From the second we checked in I felt special. We checked in with Tanner and he was extremely knowledgeable about the hotels history. Pat and Shira at concierge are totally amazing! Pat went the extra mile for us and it meant the world. Shira was so sweet and made us feel so special on our anniversary. The room was immaculate,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We lived in Seattle for many years and always enjoy coming back. For this week-long trip, we stayed at the Fairmont as the Four Seasons was booked; however, we were very pleased with our choice. In particular, the room layout of the Executive Suite really worked for us as it was nice to have total separation between the bedroom and...

I had to make a switch from a different hotel due to less than satisfactory conditions and Am Ex recommended The Fairmont Olympic. The experience was wonderful (and a huge relief!) My room was beautiful, the bed was heavenly, the amenities were top notch and the service/friendliness of the staff made me look forward to my return. Great location too....

Opening in 1924, the Fairmont Olympic is a luxury hotel with old world charm and grace. Having undergone a complete renovation in 7/2016, the property boasts spectacular architecture, extraordinary service, and outstanding cuisine. Centrally located in downtown Seattle, guests can walk city-wide with ease. Be ready to be wowed!

We stayed at the fairmont for the first time recently, and WOW what a great experience! The room was beautiful, recently renovated. We were upgraded to a suite room which was lovely. We had parking and breakfast included in our rate, which made the room very reasonable for Seattle. The valet service was prompt and friendly. The valet even remembered...

I have stayed in many different quality levels of hotels around the world. This one is solid but not spectacular. It's got a great facade and lobby but the rooms are strictly function over form. The service is good, steady and attentive. A great hotel for business not romance in my humble opinion.
