We stayed at the Hyatt At Olive 8 the week for June 22, 2014. The weather was great most of the time, when the local newscasters say it is going to rain, it is usually a light mist. I was told by the locals, when the news say a storm or "expect a down-pour," then it is enough rain to break out the umbrellas. I travelled with my wife and 10 year old daughter.
Our room was a corner room with a long hallway and window views from two sides of the room. The major advantage is the view and the long distance between the bed and the front door, which makes it more quiet (you don't hear your neighbors going in and out, and slamming the doors). The room was very clean and the cleaning staff was very attentive. We asked the cleaning staff for one extra towel and we received an extra bath towel every day of our stay.
We used the pool and gym everyday (I ate well the entire time). The pool area is clean and an employee checks on the towel supply often. The gym has various cardio machines, weight machines, as well as free weights, and a yoga/mat room.
**There is a water cooler in the gym...hint-hint...refill your bottles here.
The bottom floor has a restaurant (Urbane) and deli counter (Urbane Market). For the area, the prices are on the upper tourist end, but to be expected. At Urbane, they serve a Macaroni and Cheese dish with crab during Happy Hour, WOW, this is a must try!!
Upon leaving the hotel, on the south corner, is the Dragonfish restaurant/pub. Go during Happy Hour and try the Caramel Ginger Chicken Rice Bowl on the small plates menu, it is sweet and spicy and it is also a must try.
The location is great! You are 8 blocks away from Pike's Place Market (10-15 minute walk). A 20-30 minute walk to the Space Needle (approx. because we stopped at Hot Pot Donuts). From the Space Needle, we took the monorail back to Westlake Center Mall (4 blocks away from the hotel). The cost of the monorail is very low, $2.25 USD for adults and a $1.00 for kids.
One block south of the hotel is Hertz car rental on the corner. We wanted to visit outside of the city center. We took a short trip to Snoqualmie Falls and to other parts of the Washington.
A great stay. We would stay again at the Hyatt At Olive 8. It is far enough from the busy bars and night life, but close enough to walk to the night life.
