U.S. News Review

Stylish since 1924, The Fairmont Olympic Hotel has stayed true to its elegant roots. Crystal chandeliers dangle delicately from the arched ceiling and a classical pianist performs at afternoon tea in The Terrace Lounge. The Fairmont Olympic receives high praise for everything from its shopping arcade to its impeccable service staff to its convenient downtown location. Inside the 450 accomodations, lodgers find terry bathrobes, windows that open to let in the breeze, Internet access (free for Fairmont Presidents Club members) and goose down duvets. But fair warning: The Fairmont is pricey and so is the food at The Georgian Restaurant, though guests say the stay and the eats are worth the splurge.
