Elegant hotel, great location

Posted Jan 31, 2016
Pros: This is a lovely elegant old building. The exercise facility and hot tub/spa are particularly nice
Cons: Although there is a swimming pool it is too small for any serious swimming
Check in is smooth, staff are very helpful. The valet parking is a great service and the car showed up very promptly when we requested it. The hotel is an easy walk to the Pike Place Market, Benaroya Hall, and downtown shopping. We ate dinner at Shuckers because we know and like it from previous stays, but there are several other good dining options available close by.

Great location - close to excellent shopping.

Posted Jan 15, 2016
Pros: Everything....the décor, the staff and the location.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Excellent shopping nearby and within walking distance of Pike Place market. Also close to the Seattle Art Museum.
The hotel is one of the old "grande dames" from a former era but with all the current amenities. great shopping close by as well as the Seattle Art Museum and Pike Place Market. Staff were courteous and extremely helpful.

Beautiful Hotel, great location.

Posted Jan 14, 2016
Pros: The lobby is beautiful and comfortable. The terrace lounge is very comfortable, great cocktails and nice options for a light meal.
Cons: Service was good, but nothing special.
Location: Great location, convenient for shopping, nice restaurant options nearby.
Checked in super early and it was nice to have a room, however, when I made the reservation I upgraded to a city view corner room and our "up grade" at check in was the third floor overlooking the roof of the Spa. Not the best

excellent atmosphere and great staff

Posted Jan 5, 2016
Pros: Everything.
Location: The hotel is ideally located only blocks from downtown shopping, Pikes Market, the Seattle Art Museum and numerous restaurants.
We have stayed at this hotel many times, in fact it is the only hotel we ever stay at in Seattle because the location is excellent, the staff is always professional and accommodating, the beds are comfortable, and the hotel lounge is our favorite place for drinks and people watching.

Updated Beauty in Classic Hotel

Posted Jan 2, 2016
Pros: service outstanding
The Fairmont Olympic has been a Seattle landmark, site of countless weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries for generations. It's been updated and is spectacular with outstanding service
