Reviewed 25 June 2014

Elegant and timeless in the heart of Seattle. We loved it so much we stayed another night, despite the cost! Centrally located, great staff and attention to detail. As a result of our experience here we have stayed at Fairmont hotels as much as possible since, and we have been delighted every time.

Room Tip: Higher floors have more light, but there aren't really big views from this hotel.

Classic older hotel in excellent condition. First class service. Great location in downtown, near theaters, Pike a Place Market, Westlake. Convenient to light rail. Main restaurant in hotel looks like a palace with excellent service, although certainly not bargain prices.

Was here for a conference so this was a more upscale place than where I usually stay. I was not disappointed. The hotel is elegant. The rooms are suites, nicely decorated and lots of extras, including Keurig coffee maker, an umbrella, robes and slippers. Internet cost @ $12, something I do not understand when you pay so much for the room.

The Spa includes a nice sized heated indoor pool and hot tub in a nice sunroom. Exercise equipment appears sufficient, and saunas in the changing areas are nice. I appreciated the attendant, Dillon's, assistance on my first day. Like all employees I encountered he was polite and helpful.

Have to add that the food served at my classes for snacks and lunch was incredibly good. My request for a vegetarian meal was met with "of course," and the pasta meal was mouth watering good. (This from a woman who does not usually care about what she eats!)

Nice place.

Travel to Seattle for business regularly. Try to stay at the Fairmont Olympic every time. The location is in the heart of town, therefore everything is close and easy access to the 5 freeway. The facility is the best in town as well.

I picked the fairmont expecting a beatiful quality hotel and it was wonderful. the staff were vert attentive. They have a hotel car that was available to drop you off at local spots. I would recommend jointing the fairmont club. The club has great benefits and we got an upgrade to a nice room.

We recently had a wonderful overnight stay at the Fairmont Olympic. Although we live locally, we stayed along with five other couples attending a downtown wedding. What fun! The room was spacious and beautifully appointed. We gathered before the wedding in the Terrace Lounge where our server did a great job anticipating our needs. He graciously rearranged the space to accommodate our group and even went downstairs to Shuckers to bring up draft beer and oysters for my husband. Just one example of what I truly feel sets the Fairmont apart - staff who are knowledgable, warm, welcoming and who go above and beyond.

You can't go wrong here. The rooms are well-kept, the halls are freshly painted, and the service is earnestly helpful. Top-notch fitness center WITH a hot tub. Convenient location in the heart of downtown but still relaxed. Loved it all. So lucky to have booked this place b
