"Elegant and romantic"
Bed was so comfortable, the hotel is a beautiful look at the fabulous elegance of yester-year. The restaurants were both 5 star and the location was right in the heart of everything wonderful about Seattle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy stay on a very rainy day."
My grand daughter and I got caught in a rainstorm and as soon as we got to our hotel the check in was fast and courteous. Our room was clean and cozy. We ordered pizza which was wonderful. Room was very quiet and with window open enjoyed listening to rain. Very good time. Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel, Great Location. 5 Star"
Fantastic Hotel with great service. The rooms are clean and well stocked with everything a 5 star Hotel should have. It is in walking distance of almost anything that you would want in that class. Gucci, Louis Vuitton , Capital Grill, ect. I will make the Fairmont Olympic my only choice when visiting Seattle in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

As soon as we drove into the drive i was impressed with the old world charm and classy looks of this hotel. One word of advice valet parking is $47 a night!Genuine Expedia guest review
For the price paid, anything less than the quality provided would be offensive. Decor a bit on the old and stuffy side but probably appeals to some folks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

what an elegant hotel...we loved staying there. .Genuine Expedia guest review

Perfect! ❤️❤️❤️ it Beautiful view of the water and city! Will stay there again! Perfect location to shopping and dining!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a deal (pricewise) but a nice place to stay"
The room was clean, the beds were soft, the linens high quality. We used the pool and work out area and found both to be in good condition and pleasant. The work out area has free news papers and beverages.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fairmont misses opportunity"
This hotel description says it is on the National historical registry, yet it seems to want to downplay it all in the name of Fairmont's International hotel industry advertising. I found no historical photos or information about this lovely place. Besides that the heater didn't work in the room and that was difficult for an hour until someone came to […] fix it. Registration desk person talked so fast couldn't tell what she was saying. Hotel has two restaurants, none show menu, we went to the bar restaurant to see the menu and the bartender handed it to us, saying nothing, very unhospitable. Definitely felt, just hand us over the money for our high priced stuff and don't ask any questions! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Downtown Location"
Beautiful hotel lobby, Great Service, (Doormen rocked) however the rooms are ready for an upgrade... (or at the least the room I was in) Stayed in the Davenport (Spokane) the night before and their bed blow this away for a $100 less.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms are somewhat small..Remember these are "double" beds NOT queen. Convenient location. Purple cafe across the street was simply marvelous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
everyone was very nice. The comfort of the room was wonderful. we felt very special.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was perfect. It is close to everything in downtown Seattle (Space Needle, Ferris Wheel, Pike Place, etc.) The staff was very nice and accommodating. It is almost like a step back in time...in a great way.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Fairmont Olympic Hotel Dear Jessica, Thank you for being our guest and for taking the time to write. I greatly appreciate your kind comments about our staff and am glad that you enjoyed your stay and found our location to be convenient to many downtown Seattle attractions. We look forward to welcoming you back to Seattle and seeing you here again. Kind regards, Guy Bittner Director of Operations
"Luxurious and Close to Everything for Easy Walking"
Large, comfortable corner room. Very professional staff. Great restaurant and wonderful breakfast menu (try the Huckleberry pancakes!) Great views from our room on the 10th floor. Elegant surroundings. Excellent registration personnel. Very easy to walk to Pike Place Market, major shopping, 5th Avenue Theatre, Seattle Art Museum, Restaurants. Only minor […] detractions...doorman was usually not present to open door when walking in and out with packages/luggage. Bathtubs in rooms are definitely dated, not large enough for two, pretty mundane. Our room had an issue with hot/cold water that I am sure has likely been fixed, but could not regulate temperature and not infrequently got very hot steaming water from the cold faucet, even with running for a long time...like I say, not a likely problem to persist. Sign up for the President's Club and internet is free (usually $13.95 + tax). Parking was convenient with great parking garage just next door. Do the self-park and save $10 per day.

"Nice Hotel, great location, friendly staff."
My family and I enjoyed our one night stay here the night before the Super Bowl parade.Genuine Expedia guest review
The only complaint I had was the electrical outlet in the bathroom did not work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"700,000 Extra People"
I was in town the day Seattle celebrated its first Super Bowl win. The hotel was right on the parade route and folks were already 5-6 deep on the sidewalk when I arrived at 8:30 AM trying to beat the rush. The staff quickly checked into my room and I was off to my meetings. The room was very nice and the service was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wallpaper in bathroom peeling. Location excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central Downtown location"
Overall, a very good experience. Beautifully appointed rooms and lobby, and excellent staff. Our only complaint concerns the shower in our bathroom. The water pressure was very weak and the water luke-warm at best. No sure if this was only our room, or a hotel-wide problem, but it was not the best feeling. However, and to the hotel's credit, when I […] mentioned this when checking out, they made an adjustment on our bill, comping us on a bar tab for a few drinks. This is the hallmark of a hotel that understands customer service and satisfaction! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and ambiance"
Excellent location for shopping. The suite was perfect. All in all a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our first time here. From the minute my wife and I arrived till the time we left, the personal attention and service exceeded our expectations! The bell hops, front desk clerks, valets, and the rest of the staff were as friendly and as professional as can be. We were very impressed and recommend the Fairmont Olympic Hotel for any and every […] occasion! This will be our first choice when visiting Seattle in the future.

"Classy and elegant depiste age..."
I have always loved the Fairmont Olympic even before it had changed hands some years ago. There has been a certain class and elegance to the hotel. Nothing has changed. We stayed in a small executive suite that was quite clean and tastefully decorated. The hotel staff were amazing and friendly, especially the doormen and the reception staff. We had […] room service breakfast one morning and ate a late night dinner in the lounge one evening. Food was hot, ample, and very tasty! My only minor concerns is that hotel is showing its age, especially the carpet in the hallways and rooms and for an executive suite I was disappointed in the bathroom. Very, very small and shallow tub. I would have expected/preferred seperate tub and shower but for the price it was acceptable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Maybe I Missed Something?"
This hotel is in a great location but my experience wasn't 5 star. Old windows meant a lot of street noise even on the 6th floor. The room's carpet was old, faded and apparently patched. The pillows were terribly hard. There was no coffee in the lobby. There was not a clock in the room you could see at night. Overall it was fine, tempered by the fact […] that we had a good rate for the area, but I wouldn't choose the property again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great geographical location."
Beautiful hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not up to Fairmont Standards"
With our home being remodeled, my wife and I elected to stay 4 nights at the Fairmont Olympic. The rate was excellent which made the choice an easy one. I have always liked the Olympic, and consider Fairmont Hotels to be of the finest in North America. I must confess to some disappointment, however. The room was an executive suite. It was nice and clean, […] but smelled heavily of smoke. As in a smoking room the cleaning staff had tried to mask. The room temperature was difficult to modulate and the fans/air was noisy. Surprisingly the noise from the street was significant. Dining at the Fairmont was problematic. Shuckers is not a particulary good dining choice. I was up all night following a meal there. Pricey but pedestrian. The staff is first rate, well schooled, thoughtful and friendly without being familiar. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"One of the Best Hotels I've Stayed In"
The service was great, their vibe was laid-back yet luxurious. The staff is polite, courteous, and knowledgeable about the city. The food is exceptional, and the complimentary coffee tops it off.Genuine Expedia guest review
"GREAT place to stay in Seattle!"
We only stayed for one night - to attend the NFC Championships - but it was a perfect hotel choice! Right near everything (one mile from the stadiums and also just a short walk to Pike Place Market) and a beautiful hotel with great historical background! Spacious room and very comfortable bed!! Would definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"No hot water"
Nice place/ no hot water for two days - was given option to move to another room but didn't think the problem was hard to fix - but I guess it was. Reported the issue twice and sent email to hotel after the trip- haven't received a response - hotel getting a but dated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Fairmont Olympic Hotel Thank you for being our guest and for taking the time to write to us with your concerns. Once again, I apologize that my attempts to respond to your email were bounced back.

I appreciate you taking the time to speak with her and allowing us the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. We look forward to seeing you here again. Kind regards, Guy Bittner Director of Operations
"Great service, needs updating"
I was wowed by how attentive the staff was. They didnt even blink when we asked for a card table so we could play board games. The only disappointing experience was the fact that the room needed an update. There was chipped marble and repairs in the carpet thst were worn and visible. There were also stains on the carpet and chipped paint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff are top-notch - friendly, and proactive in making your stay comfortable.The hotel is a classic building, warm, elegant and comfortable, and in a good location with essential amenities in the building: gourmet coffee shop, great seafood (Shukkers) etc. Will definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing Anniversary Getaway"
We just mentioned that it was out anniversary and they sent us Chocolate covered Strawberries with a Card and message written in chocolate on the plate. Room was amazing and they upgraded us to a suite for only $25.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lacking friendly 5 star service"
Everything about the hotel was satisfactory except for the lack of friendly service at the front desk and the room that requires updating. The hotel location is great for shopping and sightseeing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Christmas in Seattle"
If the price were right we would stay at this hotel again. The staff are very courteous and the location is great for getting to and from Seattle's airport as well as walking to Pike Place Market and many other sights of downtown. Be aware that renting a car and self-parking (as we did) is pretty costly per day. The self park lot is around the corner […] from the hotel as well. The restaurants featured inside the hotel were excellent as was Benihana across the street. I appreciated the option of charging my phone just through the USB charger as I had lost my outlet charger right before this trip. That is an option that is not offered in most hotels.

"New Year's Eve stay"
I recently stayed for NYE. The room was great, the drinks on the Terrace were great and the food down in Shuckers was outstanding. The staff helped us find a place for breakfast the next morning, which was next to impossible since nothing in Seattle was open. I can't wait to come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
We will stay here again on our next trip to Seattle.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just as expected"
Our overnight New Year's Eve stay was just as expected: totally first class all the way. It was a short walk to the restaurant where we had dinner and to the symphony in mid-downtown Seattle. A great escape.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice older style hotel"
Great hotel. Comfortable bed. Excellent room service food. Hotel room decorations older feel like a hotel from 1950's era but upper class 1950's.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great central location"
We stayed here to be close to all the attractions. Wonderful staff and we found the city clean. The only complaint would be that the city doesn't seem very user friendly for those using wheel chairs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, room so-so."
The hotel is beautiful. The room, which was on the second floor, was clean but looked over the roof of the lower part of the mezzanine. It was quiet and the bed/pillows were comfortable. The hotel does not include much. A local call costs almost $2. The staff was awesome. They allowed us to check in early and check out late. I am sure that depended […] on availability, but it was nice it was available. I felt the cost of the hotel was a bit high for what you get. I guess we paid for being in the heart of the city, which made it worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a beautiful hotel, but we had problem with controlling the heat in the room (they comped our parking fee, when we reported the problem in the morning). Food and beverages were overpriced compared to surrounding restaurants and bars. Very attentive and helpful staff. Centrally located with no need for a car or taxi after our arrival.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and classic comfort."
Although the hotel is a little dated (furniture a little threadbare, pool and gym very small and marginally equipped) it was a great place to spend a wknd with kids. Walking distance to retail mecca, market place and lots of good restaurants. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Valet parking at $47/night was ridiculous but they know they have you […] .

Made my husband's Birthday surprise even more special with chocolate covered strawberry treats. Great staff, beautiful hotel, and comfy rooms. Overall great experience. Anyone who wants to check out some of the biggest & best parts of Seattle I'd recommend saying here.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is elegant. We were there on 12/22 during a returning debutant ball with women in gowns & men in white tie cut-a-way garb and tuxes. It was a blast with all the people to watch. The suite we had was lovely, nicely furnished in Traditional with soothing colors, marble bathroom, 2 large TVs and rich linens. Breakfast in the Georgian was excellent. […] Shuckers, the seafood restaurant, not so much as food overdone. We'll stay at this hotel again next year at this time. There are ballrooms for private parties of which there were many at the Holiday Seson. The Christmas decorations were beautiful, especially the giant tree covered with all sorts of bling. Being of the Old School I was disappointed in the extreme casualness of some of the guests' clothing. Such an elegant hotel, in my opinion, deserves better dressed clientele. However, we'll stay at this hotel again next year at this time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quite and Comfortable"
Very nice room. Was quite and comfortable which is appreciated when traveling for business. Also close to major offices in downtown Seattle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, needs some updating"
The downtown location can't be beat. That said the windows let in an exorbitant amount of street noise. We were on the 5th floor and could hear conversations from the square across the street. Some sort of heavy drapes that are in the window frame might help, or an interior window insert (as they would want to preserve the original architecture) but […] the existing curtains were almost useless for sound damping. The AC/heater needs work as well. As the hotel was warm overall we turned the thermostat down as far as it would go (55degrees) and the vent still blew out warm air. The vent is also located inside the window sill. So for air movement at night you either have the curtains open, letting in all of the exterior light; close the drapes and have no air movement; or jam the drapes up in the window frame behind the vents (as we did).
