This hotel made our trip memorable because of the friendliness, caring and assistance of all its staff that we encountered along with the exceptional quality and presentation of its food. The room accommodations were clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this high quality hotel.

We stay there for the Seattle rock and roll marathon. We did not rent a car. We took the Link Light Rail from the airport to the hotel, the university station is 1.5 block away from hotel. We walked to expo. Starting line and walked back from finished line.

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2014. We had the most unbelievable time. It may well end up being our best family vacation ever. Our room was great and well appointed. We had (I think it was called) the executive suite--a 2 room suite with a bedroom and living room with a pull out bed. 2 TVs and a large bathroom. It was quite comfortable for our family of 3 (2 adults and one 11 year old). Comfortable beds, nice sheets, etc. There is coffee and tea in the room and a mini bar. There is a lovely fitness center with indoor pool. Breakfast was included in our package and we ate it every day. The absolute highlight of our trip was the Concierge desk. They gave us the most spot-on recommendations for dinner EVERY night. I wish I knew the name of the lady that helped us the most. She worked mainly days but at least one evening. Medium length brown hair. This really made the difference between a good trip and a GREAT trip. I am sure we would have still had a fine trip if we waded through the restaurants on our own, but we did not have to. Every day we walked up, asked where to go, and they gave us REALLY GOOD advice--it made all the difference. Thank you!

The room was not worth the price we paid, didn't make you feel like you were staying at a high-end hotel. Could have gotten the same room at a different hotel for a much lower price. Bed and pillows were comfortable Concierge service was extremely helpful before and after we arrived.

The Fairmont Olympic is centrally located with easy access to everything. The rooms are clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable. I loved the fact that I did not have to roam around in the morning looking for coffee as I do not care for the coffee that the coffee makers in the room make. As I exited the elevators there was the welcoming coffee bar waiting for me every morning with mini scones, mini pastries and fresh apples AND real mugs. The staff were very attentive and helpful - some folks would say it needs updating but I found it to be very charming as I simply love the older hotels. We had an awesome experience staying there. A little pricey but well worth it. We had a suite that was very spacious and comfortable and our girls had a 2 double bed room that was also spacious. Beds were VERY comfortable - the first thing I look for when I get to my room. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
