“Great hotel!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Stayed here one night, great hotel in a great location. Modern, clean, up to date rooms with good cable, pool, spa etc.
Short walk to Pike Place Market and the foreshore, just over a klm (a mile)walk to the space needle in one direction and about half an hour walk in the other direction to Centurylink Field and Safeco Field.
Great value at under $200 a night!

Our room was clean, modern, and close to everything. It was one block away from our recent stay fr Grand Hyatt. Great customer service. Will stay here again next time. We go back and forth between olive 8 and the Grand, whichever is available first we take it!!!!!!

Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. That is so wonderful that you have been able to try out both of our downtown Seattle properties and that you like them both! We love that the central location of the hotel allows our guests to have easy access to all the great food entertainment that our city has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back to either property on your next visit to Seattle.

Best Regards,

Stayed here three nights in May 2014. Fifteenth floor was quiet. Room clean and quite spacious. Location terrific to touristy attractions. We walked everywhere even though public transportation is conveniently located nearby. Staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting restaurants, giving directions, or lending an umbrella.

I previously reviewed this hotel in 2011 when it was almost new. It still is a nice property but could use a freshening of the paint and the furnishings. The lobby looks very nice and Hyatt has added a coffee bar and some very pricey food for the visitor. Yes the walls are thin and you can hear water running and doors opening and closing. Also the bed was not quite as firm as I like but the room was large and the hotel is close to everything you need including the monorail which we took to see the Chihuly Garden and the Music Experience Museum. The staff is very courteous and helpful but seem a bit disinterested. I had just come from a lovely Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver and the difference in hospitality was noticeable.

I would recommend this hotel just for the location, the very large room and some nice features. It is also an eco friendly hotel and that is something I appreciate. The room was clean and towels and soap were provided.

Beautiful hotel but in the room you can hear every word spoken in the hallway. At 8:30 am I could hear every "knock,knock- Room Service!" all through the hall and the cleaning staff's chatter.

The bed seemed as though an elephant had slept in it and it hurt my back and neck sleeping in a "bowl".

The pool was also quite cold.

Will not return.

We stayed one night at this property before departing on a cruise. I was originally looking to stay at the Marriott because of it's location but the rates were lower at the Hyatt at Olive 8. I'm so glad we stayed here as it is now my favorite hotel in Seattle. We were upgraded to a luxury suite using the e-standby feature for a small additional fee. The suite was huge, bigger than most apartments in NYC or downtown Seattle. Loved the bathroom especially.

Room Tip: Use the e-standby upgrade feature. A suite is well worth the additional cost.

We had a corner suite with a king bedroom with a huge bathroom and a pullout sofa bed. It had a great view of downtown Seattle as we were pretty high up. Not a far walk from the convention center. We used the spa for the steam room and whirlpool which was a plus after being on our feet all day. The staff was very helpful with directions and dinner recommendations. One of the better Hyatt hotels I have stayed at.
