Historical Traveller Reviews of Fairmont Olympic Hotel

The Most Fantastic Hotel in Seattle

from london6565
We stayed at the Fairmont in Seattle on New Year's Eve, and I've intended to write a review for months.....better late than never! This is truly an incredible place. The service is beyond belief. Everyone knocks themselves out to make your stay memorable. We did the multi course dinner on New Year's Eve. The food was great, and the music was even better! We danced our way into the New Year, and I don't recall when we've had so much fun. I have no complaints at all..........just praise. By the way, if you're heading to Seattle travel on over to The Fairmont Empress in Victoria which is equally delightful. We took the Victoria Princess which is a pleasant short boat trip to Victoria. Thanks to all Fairmont employees everywhere for the exquisite stays. Hoping to return to Seattle this summer, and I'll be back! Fairmonts are expensive but worth every penny you spend. I've never left a Fairmont *anywhere* disappointed. You check out refreshed and sorry to leave.

– a fantastic stay

My fiancée and I were very happy with our stay at the Fairmont Olympic. In town for a friend’s wedding, everything was handled with the high level of service that I have come to expect from the Fairmont chain. Location is central, easy walking distance to most of the main Seattle attractions. The property itself is beautiful, a hotel with all of the old detail that takes you back in time. The lobby is phenomenal and has both a restaurant and a bar with ample seating. Once upstairs, we were amazed at the size of our room. Truly living in the lap of luxury for the weekend.

Great Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Fairmont is an incredible hotel in downtown Seattle. The service is attentive and caring - every detail was observed to perfection. Highly recommended.

Lovely hotel with great service!

This is a really special place for anyone with an appreciation for history and architecture. That said, it's been fully modernized and has all the touches you'd expect from a top tier hotel, just with a lot of addedd charm. From the lobby to the rooms, it is incredibly well decorated. There is a nice bar off the lobby, and many dining and shopping choices within easy walking distance.

This is one of those hotels where it's so nice you don't want to leave the room.

Really a cut above.

Exemplary service and attention to detail. After our pre-Alaska cruiseship stays this past summer at the Banff Springs, Lake Louise & Vancouver Fairmont hotels, we were expecting service and accomodations to have diminished after it changed management from Four Seasons. In this case the property has actually been enhanced since Fairmont took it over. However, whatever they are doing / (have done), this is one Fairmont unlike any other we have visited. Kudos all around, (especially to the staff and improvements to the rooms and public areas). We'll be back as soon as we can find an excuse to visit that beautiful part of the world again.

if you can afford it, hard to beat

Stayed there several times when was a 4Seasons, and once since became a Fairmont.

Lovely property, almost a bit overdone (as 4seasons tend to be).
Fantastic oyster restaurant on the property - Shuckers.
Great location, walking downtown area.

Great rooms, great service.
Main drawback is that it's also one of the most expensive properties in town, and for the money, might want to look at unique Seattle properties like the EdgeWater.

Beautiful Hotel with wonderful service

from GlobalQueen
Beauttiful hotel with old school charm. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in late November. We arrived late and the check-in process went very smoothly. We were upgraded to a large executive suite that was well appointed. The robes came in handy as well as the down comforter as the temperatures were a bit chilly compared to Florida. The hotel was decorated for the holidays and made us feel "in the spirit" for post Thanksgiving holiday shopping and made for a cozy environment. Room service was spotty. They screwed up the order on two occasions. One time they totally forgot to bring the order, but rushed an order to us which still was not what we ordered entirely, but they graciously did not charge us for it. I went to the spa, which was rather small, but quiet and relaxing. This hotel is in a super location, within walking distance to all the action and they offer a complimentary sedan for trips under 2 miles away. The staff are very helpful, address you by name and the service overall is very good. I would stay in this hotel again.

Classic hotel with first rate service.

from Anrmd
A beautiful, old world hotel (historic building) in a great location. We had roomy, well appointed suite with a fold out couch for our 8 year old and our bed behind draped French doors. The room was like an apartment (large). Service touches were exceptional (they even gave our daughter a card to call room service for free milk and cookies that were sent up on a plate with her name on it) and the staff was extremely pleasant and professional. An easy walk to shopping, dining, and the Pike St. Market Place. Indoor pool with large hot tub and adjacent work out equipment were very nice. All sorts of different complimentary newspapers to choose from. Great concierge staff. A superior vacation spot for my family. I look forward to another stay at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel

Worth Every Bit

from A TripAdvisor Member
The service here from top to bottom is excellent. Everyone is professional and has a good attitude. Kudos to the person managing all these terrific people. The room was a corner room with wonderful water and city views. Thank you for letting me know that great hotels like this exist. I'll be looking for Fairmont hotels in all my travels.

t be beat

from KurtBoston_MA
Frequent traveller so I know good - no - great service when I see it. This hotel has it all. Best service of ANY hotel I've stayed in. Without exception, every person you come into contact at this hotel will impress.
Used to stay at Sorrento - but like this location, lobby, restaurants, fitness center and rooms better.
This hotel has it all. Close to everything; comfortable, spacious rooms; incredible fitness center w/ every amenity possible, impressive lobby and truly accommodating staff.
Restaurants are great - gorgeous main dining room or the cozy Oyster bar @ Shuckers.
Hotel pays close attention to every single little detail. It's the only place to stay in Seattle.
