Excellent, downtown location.

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: Quiet, downtown location. Nice room with great amenities.
Cons: Carpet near to window requires cleaning. Smells as though someone was ill previously and hasn't been cleaned appropriately.
Location: Shopping, waterfront, market, great restaurants. Did a lot of walking in the downtown core and felt safe and comfortable.
Great location in the core with easy walking distance to Pike's Place Market, shopping and the monorail to the Space Needle.

Great Vacation Hotel

Posted Aug 6, 2017
Pros: Beauty and history.
Cons: Did not see anything
Location: Near transportation to many activites
This hotel is located in a good part of town in the center of a lot of business and shopping stores. Also near local transportation that you go anywhere in the city. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and went out their help to meet your needs.

Beautifully appointed, perfect service

Posted Jul 24, 2017
The hotel is beautiful. When we arrived, around suppertime, our room was not ready. We were given an inferior room to the one we booked but when we questioned this the desk staff accommodated us with comp drinks while we waited for the right one. The atmosphere is "old money 5 star." Perfect service, all clients we saw appeared to be white and straight. Evening piano in the lobby was especially nice.

Perfectly situated and fancy

Posted Jul 12, 2017
I love staying at Fairmonts, great big and fluffy beds, tons of room and super accommodating staff. The LeLabo toiletries are the best. This one used to be a Four Seasons Hotel and before that it used to be the University of Washington. It's a beautiful building and short walk to the market. Loved it.

Great Location, Fabulous Staff

Posted Jul 1, 2017
Pros: The service from the staff
Cons: We booked a basic room, but it was basic for a 5 star
Location: Hotel is in great location to go and see downtown. Most things are easlily walkable.
Excellent stay at this wonderful hotel. Staff really made it feel 5 star. We only booked the basic rooms, but the staff and the service is what made it feel great. Convenient to walk to main areas of shopping/downtown etc

Favorite hotel in seattle

Posted Jun 14, 2017
I love this hotel. It's a bit more pricey than others but the staff is great, the rooms are modern and glam and the lobby still has a titanic-like luxury feel. Upgrading to a suite is totally worth it, I have stayed here 3 times and I have nevwr been disappointed.

FANTASTIC!

Posted Jun 5, 2017
We stayed here before going on a cruise to Alaska. It is a short walk to most attractions, great staff, beautiful rooms, and exceptional amenities. If you can stay here, do it. You won't be disappointed.
