We chose to stay at the Fairmont Olympic based on close proximity to downtown attractions and our dinner at Canlis. We were greeted immediately on arrival by friendly staff and were informed our room had been upgraded to a corner suite in honor of our anniversary. The hotel itself is gorgeous both inside and out, and the view of the...

Great hotel of this class. Hotel was very clean as well as the room. Trip was on a busy week but really no problems from that. The breakfast was very expensive and charged room delivery and also charged for coffe. I think, you should provide microwaves for rooms.

We really enjoyed our visit to Seattle, The Fairmont is located in the heart of downtown Seattle. Staff was attentive, but not overly so. Rooms are nice, and we enjoyed our time in the Pool and Gym. Overall a great hotel experiance.

At 2 AM, the last night of our five night stay, the fire/carbon monoxide alarm began to shreek. Security and an engineer were unable to make it stop. Finally, at 3 AM, we were taken to another room, leaving most of our things behind. Unlike lesser hotels (which would have fully refunded for this one night), the hotel could only...

The hotel itself is beautifully appointed and well-located, and each of the three restaurants (The Georgian, The Terrace, and Shuckers) served great food with plenty of hospitality. The memorable aspect of this hotel, however, were the people and the wonderful service I received. I was a business traveler staying in a standard room, and as a frequent traveler, this was...
