The Fairmont Olympic Hotel (Fairmont Hotels)

Seattle
Just because The Fairmont Olympic Hotel has been around for almost 90 years doesn't mean it's fallen behind the times. With its desirable combination of Old World décor, contemporary amenities, and excellent customer service, this Seattle hotel does the Fairmont brand proud. And while The Plaza in New York City does hold an even higher place on our list of Best Fairmont Hotels, it doesn't brazenly showcase its Fairmont ties. The Fairmont Olympic, meanwhile, proudly touts the Fairmont name and holds the No. 3 spot on our 2013 list of the Best Hotels in Seattle.
