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.

The Fairmont is a lovely hotel soon to be in the shadow of a 40 story Amazon building across the street. Lots of construction noise during the day. Nice happy hour. Good service. Will ask for a room in the wing across from Ranier tower next time. Might be a little view left.

This is my favorite hotel in Seattle. Staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are well appointed. It's within easy walking distance of Pike Place Market, great shopping, galleries and restaurants.

Nice classy hotel. Typical good fairmont service. Lobby is a bit odd and open but cool decor. Good jazZ music. Waiters are mostly nice but some a bit boring. The concierge is great and friendly. Rooms very comfortable.

Very, very pleasant stay. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were great as was the breakfast at the Georgian restaurant. Highly recommended and shall return. Close to anything you’d like to do downtown.

Traveled to Seattle for business and our group was staying at The Fairmont. I stayed on the 11th floor in one of the non-renovated rooms, but, I loved it. It had old world charm and was very clean. Housekeeping did a wonderful job cleaning my room for the 3 days that I was there. I had been staying at the Hotel Max and had to move to The Fairmont. I think my bathroom at The Fairmont was larger than my entire room at Hotel Max. For the most part, I found the service at the front desk pretty good. I would stay there again, however, there location was a little further than I like to stay from my work venue.
