What a wonderful location for a first class hotel. Only a few blocks walk to the Pike Place Market, Nordstrom, the Library, Westgate and the monorail to the Space Needle and Seattle Pacific park, and one block from the Light Rail Station (THE transportation to/from the airport). Shucker's is a great restaurant, we had lunch and dinner there. Did not...

I've stayed here so often, I'm not sure what more I can say. Quality, and service has been consistent for many years. It's a great location, with a number of great restaurants nearby and quick access on and off the freeway. We didn't dine here this time, but did enjoy a few drinks in the Terrace area, and tried the...

Beautiful historic hotel situated closed to the convention center and the midst of downtown Seattle. The staff are helpful and the traditionallly decorated rooms immaculate. Ask for courtyard room as they are a little quieter.

With a pleasant and friendly staff, lovely well-appointed rooms, open lobby, the Fairmont Olympic is a great place to stay in downtown Seattle. We had a room with a small sitting area separate from the bedroom which made it especially nice.

My wife and I stayed at Fairmont Olympic Seattle on Labor Day Weekend 2015 along with my In-Laws for the wedding of a family member. The location of the hotel is perfect in the flatter west side of Downtown Seattle, still perched above sea level for nice peak-a-boo views of the water and yet walkable to Pike's shopping area and...

Location is excellent and although right in the center of everything, rooms are quiet. Lovely decor in the rooms, but the public spaces are outstanding. The Georgian restaurant is fantastic, and for breakfast they suspend a honeycomb over the honey pot and you can scoop up fresh honey as you please. This has to be one of the finest in...

This is a "Five Star Hotel" so going in the door you are going to expect a certain level of service and attention. The hotel delivers and adds some more.

This place looks grand upon first blush. It was my birthday and the hotel sent up chocolate covered strawberries for our arrival (no charge).

Stayed here for two nights as a part of a work function, and it was a highlight of the trip. The last time I had been here was for a wedding long ago, and it's nice to see that the Olympic has retained its charm. This is a classic building, built in the 1920s if I have my facts straight,...
