Great location, best place for "old" taste

Only a block from light rail station. Very comfortable bed. Nice location to just about everything in downtown Seattle. May come back again

Pros: Great staff, great room.
Stayed here for the first time since we had our wedding reception here 20+ years ago. I mentioned this to the staff ahead of time and received prompt emails back from several employees, all of whom did their best to make our recent stay very special. Thank you, all!

A little courtesy shy of excellence

Posted Apr 2, 2015
Hotel is well-appointed and luxurious as expected. But at this level - and in an Executive Suite - a hotel should provide a few little extras. And the Fairmont does not. Specifically, complimentary Internet access and bottled water would be reasonable expectations. But the Fairmont charges $15/day for Internet and $8 for a bottle of water!!

Decent hotel, obtrusive service.

Posted Mar 29, 2015
The hotel is okay, but I had a horrible experience with the staff. The housecleaning crew went into my room the morning of check out, saw that my luggage and belongings were still there ( I was grabbing breakfast prior to checking out) and decided to tidy throw all their towels around, and basically completely disregard my residency. You can imagine my surprise when I came back to the room, i had figured an established hotel like the Fairmont would take better care of their guests.

Usual Retreat in Seattle

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: They will fix problems without question. We also enjoy the facilities, including the gym, pool, hot tub and lobby bar. Very nice!!!
Cons: Keep the smokers in check!
Location: Great location within short walk to Pike Market
We usually stay at the Olympic every time we visit Seattle. This time there was a small hitch with our room upon check in. Our original room (said to be non-smoking) had a very distinct odour of smoke mixed with cleaning agents. This room was not acceptable. The hotel staff did switch our room and offered us a complimentary upgrade. Thank you. After this, it was business as usual. We shall return on our next visit.

Luxury all the way

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Location: It's a 5-minute walk in every direction will get you to stores, restaurants, and major bus lines.
This hotel is the fanciest place I have been. From the moment we checked in, I could already tell it was so far above any other hotel I've stayed in. It was my friend's birthday that I had simply mentioned as our reasoning for staying (not expecting anything, just making conversation while we waited for our room keys) and I had mentioned we were going to try to the Terrace happy hour that evening so when we went and started talking to the waitress, we found out the front desk had ordered their specialty cocktail for us for when we got there! We went back to our room to get ready for our evening and a room service attendant came up with chocolate-dipped strawberries! It was so unexpected and so thoughtful. I could live here, I would. Best hotel experience, yet!
