Our take on Fairmont Olympic Hotel

Sometimes, the trendy boutique hotels make you flash back to your high school days, when you felt like the perpetually uncool kid. For respite from the too-cool-for school vibe often found at those properties, The Fairmont Olympic Hotel comes to the rescue. In this storied hotel, built in the Roaring Twenties, you'll experience old world charm and classic decor. Rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, featuring windows that actually open, terrycloth bathrobes and down duvets. Unlike other hotels, where the dining options seem like they're merely for show, both The Georgian and Shuckers are venerable Seattle dining institutions. In particular, don't miss high tea at The Georgian: it'll far exceed any images you have of children playing with teacups, with its delicious savory sandwiches, scones, and extensive selection of teas. All in all, The Fairmont Olympic Hotel provides an elegant experience in the Emerald City.

People Who Viewed This Hotel Also Looked at...

Hotel Vintage, a Kimpton Hotel

4 star hotel

0.13 mi away

Best Rooms

Most rooms with a city view are located on the Spring Street side of the hotel. The corner room on floor 11 has a nice view of Mt. Rainier on a clear day.

Seattle Marriott Waterfront

4 star hotel

0.56 mi away

Best Rooms

The Waterfront rooms provide the best views of Elliott Bay, especially from higher floors. If you book a Elliot Bay View room, be sure to request one that's looking straight at the bay, because there are many rooms in this category that don't actually provide a good view of the bay.

Hotel Monaco Seattle, a Kimpton Hotel

4.5 star hotel

0.12 mi away

Best Rooms

The hotel only has 11 floors and is surrounded by skyscrapers, so city views are limited.
