The Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle in Seattle, Washington

When the property now known as The Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle debuted in the Roaring Twenties, it marked the arrival of the Pacific Northwest – until then, hotels of that caliber were found east of Chicago. It hosted countless galas, debutante balls and presidential visits – JFK stayed here in 1961 – and, in 1979, joined the ranks of the National Register of Historic Places. Italian Renaissance architecture and Old World style meld into a centrally located Seattle landmark that hosts a AAA Four Diamond Award-winning restaurant and one of the city's oldest oyster bars.

Have a heart-healthy breakfast and traverse Seattle's hills by bike. Cycle the Burke-Gilman trail through the artsy Fremont neighborhood, past Gasworks Park, and alongside spectacular lakefront homes to end at the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery. Sample its signature chardonnay. Back at the hotel, sink into a booth surrounded by original oak paneling and shuck the city’s best seafood.

I highly recommend this location. The staff was exceptional and very accommodating. They seemed as if they really cared about giving us a good experience. The decor was stunning with a luxurious old world flare and a more modern luxury interior in our room. It was very quiet so we didn't hear our "neighbors" at all. They had anything we needed including hair dryer, iron, more pillows, etc. Will definitely be a return customer. Thank you for the beautiful experience. -Amber Locke P.S. Waking up to Nespresso in the morning sold us!

Gearing up for our anniversary. We checked in with the idea of renewing our love in the idea that 28 years of being married was the four times the seven year itch. Your staff made this happen for us and helped o send us in the right direction of our 28 year promise.

When you have worked all of your life and you reach retirement, you should or would like to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Being able to enjoy a weekend getaway in a luxury hotel like Fairmont Olympic in Seattle are one of those enjoyments.

Never get tired of this Fairmont. All the shopping and sightseeing right outside your door. Comfortable rooms with great amenities. Breakfast is wonderful in the lobby restaurant. A never miss when in Seattle. Fairmont delivers a great product for the price.

We are locals but stayed one night to enjoy this magnificent hotel and our glorious city, Seattle. The Fairmont Olympic is a true luxury hotel, from the valet parking to the doorman to the front desk to how the rooms are appointed, this is first class. One highlight is the beautiful grand lobby. It is a stop-n-stare feature. Also, the Georgian Room for breakfast, lunch or high-tea is also stunning. The staff have all been trained in first-class service. Our room was spacious for an old-world style hotel. Most everything has been modernized with the exception of the bathtub-shower combo. My only complaint is the $15 for WiFi...really? At a hotel of this caliber? This a small complaint. You are offered free WiFi if you join a rewards program. I protect my email as much as I am able.
