"Luxury in the heart of Seattle"
The Fairmont is a fantastic luxury hotel centrally located in downtown; it's perfect for folks who want to see the city as well as hometown boys like me who want to escape with the wife and enjoy the fantastic dining options. My only (mild) compliant is that the flat-screen TVs are only connected to an analog source, so your viewing experience will […] not be nearly as sharp as the one at home. This lack of an HD signal is not enough to stop me from giving the Fairmont a 5-star review, but it did strike me as odd given the complementary wifi service in the rooms.

very good service, close to many shops and restaurants, but room is very smallGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay overall was fantastic. We hit a slight bump but when it was brought to the attention of the hotel staff it was taken care of immediatly with a little extra for our inconvenience. The hotel was centrally located that allowed us to walk to many of the sights downtown or on the waterfront.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bed was horrible"
The bed was a king sized bed on double box springs. I sleep next to my wife as you are suppose to and I had to sleep on a hard ridge where teh box springs came together. Needless to say, I got no sleep, woke with a back ache that I had for two days. To make matters worse, I expressed my experience and discomfort while checking out and the desk clerk […] only said, " Gee, that's too bad." Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location to experience Seattle"
09/22/14 David P Flower Mound, Texas
The Fairmont Olympic is a great location for visiting Seattle. Easy walk to SAM, Pike's Market, ferries, Seattle Aquarium and downtown shopping. The hotel is Old World (think Fairmont San Francisco or Toronto), not a W or Four Seasons. Best way to visit is as a member of Fairmont's President's Club. It's free, offers a separate check-in desk and several benefits 9free in-roon Wi-Fi). Very courteous staff. Common areas are terrific, open and beautifully decorated, especially the period from Thanksgiving through New Years. No better place to stay for the Seattle Thanksgiving parade (Friday after Thanksgiving), which goes right past the front door. There are two on-site restaurants, one seafood the other a fancier, very formal Dining Room. Very good food and service at each but the dining room is definitely priced for special occasions. We had Thanksgiving dinner there a couple of years ago; very good but the value proposition is a stretch. The lobby bar is a great spot for tea or an evening drink. Very much part of the Olympic experience. Rooms are spacious but can be dated. Bathrooms are very large and nicely appointed with marble tops and floors. Fresh carpets would help but everything is clean and the patterns add to the aforementioned Old World character of the hotel. Overall, the hotel is quiet, very clean, excellent service, good to very good food (even room service) and very fairly priced for what it delivers. I have stayed here 10+ times with wife and daughter, and small dog (Not a special dispensation; they allow/welcome dogs). Great indoor pool, too. Never disappointed. Looking forward to going back.

Your hotels were truly beautiful and my holiday was sensational thanks to you and Rocky Mountaineer. t I was very impressed with the location of the Hotels especially near the water. I spent a lot of time in your beautiful surroundings

Lovely classic Grand Hotel.Large bedroom suite, with comfy large bed. Classic Ornate Restaurants,Foyer etc. Easy walk to the Waterfront markets etc and short walk along 4th Ave to shopping etc. Like most hotels though there was only one suitcase stand in room, normally 2 would be required for couples.
"Nice staff like the old days, unfortunately everything else is like the old days too"
09/21/14 fleebee77l California
I'm typically a big fan of Fairmont Hotels, but I think this one needs to step up their game just a bit. Let me first say this: their staff was the friendliest I've ever come across. It didn't feel like a fake friendly either, just genuine kindness. So here's the rub: if paying for a suite (which my husband did), the internet should be faster than dial-up speeds! If you're trying to get access to the "wifi" internet on your smart phone, just stop b/c it's not gonna happen-that wheel is just gonna keep on turning. The furnishings were old and worn. The remaining aspects of the room were standard, but I've come to expect better than standard from the Fairmont name. But again, the staff were EXCEPTIONALLY nice, and these days that's not a standard thing.
"Sunny in Seattle"
09/20/14 CentralTravelor Bedminster
Was in Seattle for conference and had the great pleasure to be able to stay at the Olympic Fairmont. Wow, impressive, awesome rooms in a great location close to everything. Switching between the conference and a walk down hill to water front - Pikes market place where the original Starbucks is, I felt well connected. Friendly, helpful staff who shined my shoes and delivered ice to the room without me asking. Nice touches all around.

This is a great city centre hotel offering classic Fairmont style and service. Our room was very comfortable and quite large with a separate dressing area. We had everything we needed with a coffee machine, comfortable bed and excellent service from all the staff. I enjoyed a swim in their lovely pool which was refreshing after a days sightseeing. We had breakfast in the main restaurant which was excellent. Dining in grand style comes to mind. Even though this was an older hotel it was not faded in it's glory.

This hotel has everything, beautiful foyer, bedrooms, fitness club and staff. In addition it is in a great place down town. You are within easy walking distance of all you want to see providing you can walk up hills
"An excellent value, real 5 star experience"
09/19/14 M&G_OnTheRoadAgain Portland, United Kingdom
5 star can mean all sorts of things to different people. To us it is about a calm sense of luxury and excellence in customer care; we had both of these throughout our three night stay. The room cost us £160 a night, a real bargain for such a well located city centre hotel. This is an older style hotel, not glass and marble 'chic' like Fairmont Pacific in Vancouver. Really there is not much more to say: Room - roomy, comfortable and elegant Gym, sauna and pool - delightful Service - front desk, door, room, concierge, all excellent
"Great amenities, Great location"
09/18/14 Kenna M Des Moines, Iowa
Just returned from a 3 night business stay. It is as you will expect for a Fairmont, traditional luxury. The dining offerings are both excellent and oppulent. The Gym and the pool were everything I could hope for. The real star of this hotel, however is the service. The concierge was very attentive to my needs. I asked for package reception and delivery, bag holding, correspondence delivery, on and on. The hotel really does take every opportunity to provide luxury. I opted for breakfast in my room one morning and upon delivery the full table (not some tray) even had a vase of floating flowers in it. Such a serene touch. The proximity to everything that matters downtown is amazing! The market is close, high end shopping is at your fingertips...yes, I would definitely stay again. Some say the hotel is in need of an update, but I firmly disagree. The character of the Olympic is its' history.
"Great Hotel for the feeling of Seattle"
09/17/14 Stephen F Brentwood
Staff is courteous and helpful. The hotel is beautiful and full of history. The Front door staff makes you feel welcome and safe. I stayed here for a conference that was being held at the hotel. I had not had a previous experience with Fairmont and I was pleasantly surprised with the room, amenities, courteous staff, and location.
