“Great Hotel Choice in Seattle”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This was a girls weekend to site see, shop and taste the local cuisine. The concierge (Alex & Chuck) were xtremely helpful, booking tours, recommending restaurants and amazingly enough after we walked down to the Sheraton to catch the Hop on Hop off, Chuck walked down to the pick up point to tell us the pick up area had changed. He said he was on his way to the Grand Hyatt for business, but still this alone deserved a huge commendation. Front desk, housekeeping and pool staff were very accommodating and went the extra mile that is not common place in this industry. The only downfall was the lack of sound proofing and we were awakened Saturday night with guests in the next room talking and security was up within minutes and had them silenced. The Hyatt Olive 8 definitely want your repeat business and they certainly have mine. We would recommend the free walking tour of Pike Place Market and $10.00 shuttle to the Casino next to the Premium Outlet Mall which includes a free buffet worth $13.50. Metropolitan Grill has a terrific Happy Hour Menu, but get there early.

Room Tip: Ask for a room option that may be in the quieter area of the hotel if possible.

Great hotel - great staff! From the time you check in you feel at home in this boutique style Hyatt. No old Hyatt style here... more of a sleek boutique look --- loved it! They also have a good size gym and an indoor pool! Perfect for some early morning laps. The restaurant is wonderful and unique with some creative dishes.

I recently attended a conference in Seattle and chose to stay at this hotel. I am very happy with the choice. Here is why:
1. The location was very close to the Washington State Convention Centre (two short blocks).
2. There was great shopping nearby incl Nordstrom and Pacific Place indoor mall.
3. It was a few blocks from the westlake downtown light rail terminal station.
4. The property is quite new and the design touches realy suited my taste.
5. The staff were warm and engaged.
6. The gym equipment was like new.
7. The lap pool was 25 yards long and had three lanes.

I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is nice and clean with lots of positives. The indoor pool and jacuzzi are great, I think this is one of the only hotels in downtown Seattle with a pool. It's a short walk to the mall where you can get the monorail to the Space Needle/EMP, and later on the train to the airport (which only costs like $3, super convenient!). You can also walk to Pike Place Market, the aquarium, etc in about ten minutes. I appreciate that they even give you a little tube of toothpaste in the hotel room. The room itself was very large and the bed was comfy, although the window basically looked right in on someone's office, so we saw the poor guy working there all the time while we were there during the week. If you want to go to some of the hipper neighborhoods, it's about a $13 uber ride to Fremont or Ballard. A couple of negatives, though: You have to pay for wifi (which I personally think there is no excuse for these days), and on top of that there is NO cell phone reception in the rooms. Very frustrating. There is free wifi in the lobby if you're desperate. And the hotel bar has the slowest bartenders in the whole world, which bugged me for some reason.

Stayed overnight in May of 2013, was given spectacular treatment, upgraded with out being asked, and found the hotel gorgeous, modern and the LEED features are intelligent and well thought out. Will definitely give this hotel big thumbs up and won't stay anywhere else if I'm in Seattle! Love the Hyatt rewards program that really puts the shine on these amazing properties!

Room Tip: Corner rooms offer amazing views of downtown Seattle, be sure to request one, also take advantage of...

Green Features: Really liked the LEED certified aspect of this hotel, lights are room key enabled so when you leave they all shut off, great for savings on electricity and water savings in the rooms doesn't affect quality of bathing or washing up.
