The Fairmont Olympic Hotel is an excellent hotel with exceptional service. We were guests for three nights during a conference and found everything about the hotel more than satisfactory. Initially upgraded to a higher floor but a small room, the staff quickly worked to resolve the problem and we settled into a suite on the south side above the pool....

We stayed at the fairmont for the first time recently, and WOW what a great experience! The room was beautiful, recently renovated. We were upgraded to a suite room which was lovely. We had parking and breakfast included in our rate, which made the room very reasonable for Seattle. The valet service was prompt and friendly. The valet even remembered...

This hotel is in a great location. Close to everything you would want to see and do in the area. A few blocks from the Fish Market etc.... The service is extraordinary. The views from the rooms are spectacular at least on the higher levels. Only thing was (and maybe that was just because we were there on a Sunday)...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on May 23rd. We were blown away by the exquisite service we received. From check in to check out, this hotel treats all of its guests with class. We stayed with a voucher that we had won during a silent auction, yet we were still treated like paying guests. Kudos to...

Pros: Very spacious room, excellent front desk (was very helpful), quick check-in/ check-out. The toiletry was of high quality, beds were firm and very well insulated from sound. They even keep an umbrella in the room which is very handy. The bellboy is very helpful and arranged for a taxi at 4:00 AM in the morning to the airport. There...

While we arrived to the hotel early in the morning and our room wasn’t ready, my friend and I got an access to the spa area where we were able to get ready for a day in the city. When we came back, our beautiful room was ready with amenities for my birthday. Thank you very much for that! The...

Great location to access and explore Seattle. From the doorman with the great hats, to the fabulous friendly check-in, the staff here are top notch. We stayed three nights in a king suite on floor two. The room is spacious, nicely decorated and maintained, and has everything you need. We were lazy and ordered room service the first night. It...

The property is located in a perfect location. You do have to walk up a large hill to get back if you visit the harbor or pikes place. Rooms are perfect. Each day our room was cleaned immaculately and everything was organized including clothing and shoes. Concierge were all very helpful and knowledgeable. Check in was awesome with very friendly...

This hotel was perfect from the time we pulled into to the valet to the time that we left. The 1st thing the valet said to me, as he was taking the trash out of my hands, was "the experience starts here". He was absolutely correct. The entire staff was very nice and helpful in recommending things to do and...
