Beautiful hotel & centrally located

Posted Mar 20, 2017
Pros: Luxury hotel at its best. Staff is incredibly attentive without being obnoxious, grounds & rooms are spotless. Very comfortable & tasteful decor.
Cons: Smaller-than-expected pool, no restrictions on children for a late-night swim or soak. Exorbitantly over-priced room service menu.
Location: Couldn't be in a better location! Pike Place Market nearby, shopping, dining, etc. Everything you need is right there, or a short cab ride away.
My other half & I wanted to treat ourselves to a nice hotel in Seattle for the weekend and chose the Fairmont, based upon its reputation. From the time we arrived until the time we checked out, we were treated with the utmost professionalism & given the attention that royalty might receive. Valets are at your service, doormen very kind, and the rest of the staff is excellent as well. Not knowing it was our anniversary, reception upgraded us to a suite at no additional charge upon checking in - adding a nice touch to our experience. After a night out, the lounge is a wonderful, intimate spot for a nightcap. Normally we don't "do" hotel lounges, but I'm happy we tried this one only to return the next night! My only complaints: the smaller-than-expected pool (which was chock-full of screaming children for our adults-only anniversary trip) and the very high-priced in-room dining menu (20% gratuity charged, plus another line to add more tip + $4 delivery charge for room service...why not just increase the already exorbitant prices?). My hope is that the Fairmont adjusts their pool policy to exclude children from the pool & spa area after 6 or 7pm. It is impossible to relax in the hot tub or go for a swim with children splashing about & screaming. Other than those two minor things, it's lovely! Highly recommend the Fairmont Olympic!

Outstanding full service hotel

Pros: Facilities and staff
Location: Close to waterfront, Pike's Place Market, and other downtown attractions

Pros: newly renovated, big room!
Hotel lovely, location perfect, but downtown location comes with downtown noise...bring earplugs! Windows do not block out any noise!

First class hotel

This place has got everything you'd want from a first class city hotel: impeccable service, great location, and a room that feels like a silent refuge.
