"Needs an update"
A lovely old sophisticated hotel that has allowed its rooms to become tired. They are clean and have everything you need but the decor is so old. Not quaint, just sad! Staff are wonderful. Restaurants are hit or miss. Shabby, not shabby sheek!

"Over rated"
A lovely old hotel with dignity and charm as a first impression. But the rooms are tired and out of date. Although clean, the furnishings, carpet, curtains, bathtubs etc seem to be from the 70s. Seems like a minor issue but it just gives you a "what am I paying for" feeling. My suite was on the second floor and the street noise was unbearable on the week days! The staff were great, the restaurants were hit or miss. We had off the charts wonderful meals, and two that went back!

"ROOM REVIEW"
WE ORDERED A SUITE AND WHEN WE ARIVED OUR SUITE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A ROOM SEPPERATED BY A SET OF DOORS THAT HAD CURTIANS AND NO WINDOWS. KIND OF DEFEATS THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF A SUITE, IT WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF THE EXTRA MONEY WE PAID TO HAVE THE SUITE

Hello Tony, Thank you for being our guest and for taking the time to write. I am glad to see that overall you enjoyed your stay, though hope that you accept my apologies for any disappointment you experienced with your suite. For guest safety the glass in the doors has been removed, but please be assured that we are currently working on a different solution to provide the type of separation that some of our guests expect in the suites. The next time that you visit Seattle, I hope that we may have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Fairmont Olympic. Kind regards, Jon Mathews Director of Operations

"Great place to stay!"
The staff is what makes this Addy I nice place to stay. The hotel is beautiful, but a little dated. It's clean, comfortable and had no issues bringing our kids. They even gave our kids complimentary milk and cookies delivered by room service. The hotel location is great, we walked to pike place and took tram to stopped needle. The valet attendant was incredibly nice and went out of their way to assist us. There restaurant Shuckers was great too! We will be back and highly recommend if you are staying in downtown Seattle.

The Fairmont Olympic Hotel was awesome. The room was comfortable and clean. But most of all, the room service food was exquisite. I was in town for my daughter's college graduation. My stay was great. Nearby parking was pricey but I guess that can be expected in this area.

"No Place To Sit"
We were looking for something different rather than our usual stay at the Westin. The Fairmont had a room reserved for Expedia had one ridgid office chair. One of us had to sit on the bed or lay on it because there was no other seating. The room was small. I was very disappointed and will stay at the Westin next time.

"Service beyond excellent..."
Service is above and beyond. A guest with me at lunch cut himself on a staple under the table. Minor incident. The staff was so offended that this occurred, they wouldn't rest until they did everything possible to make it right. The only reason we even mentioned it to the staff in the first place was to make sure it got fixed as to not happen again. Amazing dedication to superior service. Overall I only had one complaint. The bed felt a bit old. Overly soft spring mattress that seemed like it was a bit beyond its life. It is possible I am just addicted to my memory foam at home.

"A little courtesy shy of excellence"
Hotel is well-appointed and luxurious as expected. But at this level - and in an Executive Suite - a hotel should provide a few little extras. And the Fairmont does not. Specifically, complimentary Internet access and bottled water would be reasonable expectations. But the Fairmont charges $15/day for Internet and $8 for a bottle of water!!

"Decent hotel, obtrusive service."
The hotel is okay, but I had a horrible experience with the staff. The housecleaning crew went into my room the morning of check out, saw that my luggage and belongings were still there ( I was grabbing breakfast prior to checking out) and decided to tidy throw all their towels around, and basically completely disregard my residency. You can imagine my surprise when I came back to the room, i had figured an established hotel like the Fairmont would take better care of their guests.

"Luxury all the way"
This hotel is the fanciest place I have been. From the moment we checked in, I could already tell it was so far above any other hotel I've stayed in. It was my friend's birthday that I had simply mentioned as our reasoning for staying (not expecting anything, just making conversation while we waited for our room keys) and I had mentioned we were going to try to the Terrace happy hour that evening so when we went and started talking to the waitress, we found out the front desk had ordered their specialty cocktail for us for when we got there! We went back to our room to get ready for our evening and a room service attendant came up with chocolate-dipped strawberries! It was so unexpected and so thoughtful. I could live here, I would. Best hotel experience, yet!

"Right in the heart of downtown"
We were well received, staff was very attentive. Beds were very comfortable. It was very quiet. Hallway carpets are looking a bit tired. One of the vertical blinds fell on me when I opened the drapes. We had to tighten the screws on the handles of several room furnishings as they were coming off. We do not like the Keurig coffee machines as the coffee is poor quality (in coffee town, no less!) and the process highly environmentally unsound. My husband was very put off by the requirement for payment for use of the internet. It seemed to us that a hotel of this "stature" ought to include this in the base price. We used out phones instead. We enjoyed the stay but will probably not return.

"Georgian Beauty"
This hotel is just elegant. The feel of this property begins with the elegant portico entry graced by gold and glass doors flanked by sizable black panther statues. Upon entering, the high ceilings, marble and gracious appointments transition you into a comfortable and stately reception area. The staff are bright, attentive and quietly appropriate, addition to the solidly beautiful ambiance of this hotel. I would live there if I could! The room had lovely lead crystal light fixtures and lamps, as well as tole painted accents and heavy upholstered window treatments with patterns that were soothing and complimented the furnishings in the room beautifully. There was plenty of room and sincerely felt like being at home. I left my carry on with the concierge desk, and retrieved it easily upon return from my business meetings. Again, the staff was completely appropriate, gracious and their demeanor made the experience of this stay complete. I sincerely hope that I will have the opportunity to return and spend more time at this luxurious hotel and take a walk among the grand ballrooms, dine in the restaurants, and visit the shops present. Unfortunately, I was only in town for a day and had a full schedule which prevented me from truly relaxing and enjoying the hotel itself. I would especially recommend this property to someone who is looking for a terrific place to celebrate a wedding or anniversary, as it is elegant and stately, while at the same time so quietly romantic

"Elegance, sophistication in downtown Seattle"
This hotel is first class from the doorman to the lobby. The accommodating staff are gracious and eager to please. Our room was a one bedroom suite with partial Puget Sound views. The windows open so you can let some fresh air into the room. There were plush bathrobes, clean/fresh towels, and the bath products were exceptional. There is a small refrigerator in the room, and snacks are available for purchase at a nominal fee. Despite the fact that the hotel is downtown, there is very little noise, and there was no detectable noise coming from other rooms. That in itself is another plus. The comforter is white and all linens are crisp and fresh. The hotel is located 1/2 block from the 5th Avenue theater, and is centrally located near Pike's Market and other Seattle treats. There is a cozy bar downstairs, a wonderful French bakery at the back of the hotel, and a dining room that serves delectable food.
