Overview

Iconic luxury hotel in the heart of Seattle
Room rates are pricey
Stylish since 1924, the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle 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 Hotel receives high praise for everything from its indoor swimming pool to its impeccable service staff to its convenient downtown location. Inside the 450 accommodations, lodgers find terry bathrobes, windows that open to let in the breeze, internet access (free for Le Club AccorHotels 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.

A Seattle landmark since 1924, the Fairmont Olympic offers refined luxury and top-notch customer service. No wonder it attracts a fiercely loyal clientele, who also appreciate its prime Downtown location, many amenities, and timeless glamor. The 450-room hotel’s Italian Renaissance architecture and stately lobby honor its grand-dame past, while the guest rooms recently received a major modern refresh.
