Did a getaway trip to Seattle and the Fairmont was on a reduced rate. Service was excellent from the valet, to the doorman, to the concierge. The fitness center had precor ellipticals and the pool was warm and the hot tub had space for over a dozen people. The room was on the old side and our room had a leaky AC. The suite was well appointed and even had french doors separating it from the main living area. The location is also perfect. Breakfast at the Georgian was high quality as well.

We spent a week at the Fairmont in Seattle. Once we arrived we upgraded our room to a suite. The suites are nice and have lots of room along with a TV in the bedroom and in the main room. The decor was a little outdated. The room was quiet and we were able to open the windows a bit to let some fresh air in. The hotel staff was very nice and accomodating. Parking for the hotel is right across the street but is pricey per day (maybe not by Seattle standards). I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the downtown seattle area. Even though we had a car lots of restaurants, bars and sights within walking distance.

Room Tip: We were on the 11th floor and seemed to very nice and quiet there at night.

The is a very nice hotel with nice rooms which are above standard for large chain hotels.
It's very conveniently located for the shops & restaurants - about 5 mins walk from the Crab Pot for man V food fans! Wild Ginger restaurant also highly recommended for delicious Thai food.I've always wanted to see Pike Place Market & the fish throwing vendors - worth seeing definitely, but what amazed me about the market was the fresh flowers & the cherries. Amazing!The seafood stalls are amazing, the chewing gum wall stinking and the overall Seattle experience fantastic. All within 15 minutes walk from the hotel. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay at this hotel again.

If you like old classic Hotels that have that "Old Lady" grace, then this is the place. Central to Restaurants and shopping and very easy to get to from Interstate 5, the main North South Freeway which goes through Seattle. Great staff and very welcoming. The valet parking is expensive but all parking in Seattle seems that way.
This is a great place to stay on the way through Seattle or for a weekend. The rooms are typical of an older designed Hotel but they have done a great job updating the rooms. Very Classy!!

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor and away from the elevators and ice machines. Higher up as the street noise can get loud in the morning, not excessive but enough to disturb a light sleeper.

Stayed here for a week on business. Nice hotel, nice rooms right in the heart of downtown and super frinedly staff from doormen, to front desk to waiter/waiteresses.

Here is a little story to sum up the experience. On night 3, without any other real interaction with the concierge, we ask him to make a dinner reservation for 8 at the Metropolitan, a famous Seattle steakhouse. He makes the call for us and we head out for a drink and then to the restaurant. After we are seated and looking over the menu, the waiter brings 4 plates of 'American' Kobe beef carpaccio, compliments of the concierge at the Fairmont.

Considering we had never been in the hotel before and only had three rooms booked there at a normal rate, I was extremely impressed by the gesture.

Also had a good (expensive) breakfast at the hotel and a very good seasfood restaurant (Shuckers) affiliated with the hotel.
