« A "broken window".... »

The elevator on the far left smelled really bad for 3 days. It smelled like someone threw up in it or something really bad. Incredibly putrid odor. One day they sprayed some type of deodorizer then the next day it smelled horrible again. Other guests that we shared the elevator with also commented on it. Not sure why management allowed this elevator to remain in service without fixing the issue. "Stuff happens" but to allow it to go unfixed for so many days is pretty bad for a hotel such as the Fairmont. Also, we booked 2 rooms. Only 1 was ready at 4pm. They said they'd text us when the other room was ready. We never got a text. The guy said "it looks like we sent the text"..... Trust me, I didn't get it so something is wrong with your system. We came back around 6:30pm and got our key for the other room. Honestly, pretty disappointed overall.

My experience was really +ve and good. The registration line was small when I walked in, the requests were processed immediately and the accommodation was really good.

« Satisfactory but not the "best-in-seattle-for-kids" experience that I expected »

I booked based on several online articles that Fairmont Olympic has a catered & unique experience for families traveling with kids. Specifically several media outlets mentioned complimentary pool toys and cookies & milk at bedtime. I would not have booked the hotel if not for these special "extras" for our kids. There was no mention of cookies and milk for the kids and when I asked the front desk employee about stuff for kids she seemed uncertain and said 'there's a pool or maybe they'd like the monorail down the street.' The pool had a basket with 2 styrofoam noodles and a few kickboards -- definitely not the fun pool toys we expected (floats, diving toys, games, etc). I did appreciate the kids' discount at the restaurant, but otherwise there was nothing special to make this a unique family experience so I would not book again.

« Pleasant Stay »

It had been a few years since my last stay and it was certainly a pleasant stay. Room seemed a bit small but was comfortable. Nice bed and room was clean and well appointed. Did have a minor issue with articles or leftovers that were left in the refrigerator and not taken of after my phone call to front desk. Lobby is starting to look a little dated but I will be staying here again.

« Great experience at the Fairmont »

From the doorman remembering our name to the quiet room and great food we enjoyed every moment of our stay. The Fairnont is a destination on its own.

« Awesome location, friendly, welcoming and efficient service. »

Fantastic stay. Great swimming pool and fitness facility. Staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. The trainee in concierge was a bit clued out but pleasant. The room service food was very average and on one occasion we returned to our Room filled with a profound smell of cannabis. However, the staff were super friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfasts and breakfast food in general was outstanding as was the service. The location cannot be best and saved us trying to find parking if we had stayed anywhere outside of downtown and had to drive to attractions. The Fairmont was the perfect compliment to our wonderful first time in Seattle.

« Beautiful and just lovely »

It was such a nice staff. From the check-in through check-out, I was extremely satisfied with my stay. During my brief stay, I placed the privacy marker on the door. I especially loved that housekeeping texted me to ensure there wasn't anything I need - Great touch!

« Great location »

Very luxurious, quiet and clean. A little bit overpriced compared to others in the same area though.

It was good. Very disappointed in how much it cost to park our car $60. After paying such a high rate on the room.

« Terrible check-in, but otherwise very good »

The hotel was at full capacity, and our room was not ready for several hours. We were traveling with our infant son, and had informed the property that he would be staying in the room. The registration staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. When we got to the room, the crib was there, but not the refrigerator we had requested so that we could store our son's baby formula. Kate Lakhman, the assistant front manager, was very helpful. She got us the fridge and called the follow-up on our experience. She was very accommodating. The rest of our experience was good. The room was very nice, and the concierge was excellent. We booked several reservations, a baby sitter, and a car service to the airport through the concierge, and our experiences were uniformly very good. The bell desk also was excellent, as was the front door man who helped with our car and made sure we had water each time we arrived or departed the hotel. Serge, our waiter for breakfast at the hotel restaurant, also was excellent. But for the awful check in experience, I would have given a higher rating.

« Very comfortable hotel with attentive service »

We stayed at the Fairmont in a Seattle for one night at the end of an exceptional Alaskan holiday. It is conveniently placed near to a Link Rail station with direct access to the airport. The hotel has an attractive entrance, although for new arrivals a member of staff is needed to direct you up to the reception lobby which is one floor up. This lobby, as with all the public rooms we visited, is elegant and spacious. Our bedroom, a deluxe king, had been renovated recently and was spacious and very comfortable, with a large bathroom. There are coffee making facilities as well as a full mini bar on which you could quickly spend your remaining dollars if you wished (we didn’t). The only quibble I had with the room was one which seems to be common in hotels across the globe - the mechanical plug in the bathroom washbasin didn’t stay down and so you couldn’t fill the basin with water. Far better if they used an old fashioned plug. The Fairmont is in a reasonable location for the city. The concierge was helpful in highlighting places we could walk to. You can walk sharply downhill to the sea and reach the tawdry harbour resort area or walk a few minutes to the monorail in the main shopping area which takes you to the Space Needle. Don’t walk in the opposite direction (east) as you quickly come upon an area in which I wouldn’t feel safe in the dark. There are a few restaurants near the hotel. The Fairmont Olympic is expensive but we enjoyed our brief stay and would recommend it. We were a bit disappointed with Seattle but perhaps you have to stay longer to get to understand its attractions.

Nice hotel and attentive staff- I booked a nice room online and was put in an ADA accessible room with rails and low counters etc. Then charged extra for my dog which is fine but the room was not what we expected.

« Overall we found our weekend stay quite enjoyable »

My family was very pleased including my five year old grandson who particularly enjoyed the pool. The free parking and breakfast included was also a plus. It is one of the finer hotels I stay in around the country and unfortunately there doesn't seem to be many left. The oysters at Schuckers were superb.

Maybe to your credit card ending in 6482? If so I am happy to have the amount refunded.

« Another fabulous stay at the Olympic Fairmont »

It's always a lovely time when we stay at the Olympic Fairmont. This time, we arrived earlier to enjoy afternoon tea at the Georgian before checking in. While the food wasn't our favorite, the tea, the service and the ambiance was perfect. We were expecting a more traditional British team menu, however, everything was lovely-we just didn't care for the flavors. That said, we always enjoy our stay. We avail ourselves of the in-room dining as well as the in-room movies to purchase. It's our thing to stay in so to speak before heading out for whichever event we are headed too con (whether it's ECCC, a Sounder's match, concerts or AceComicCon). The in-room dining menu has a lot of variety and the quality of the various dishes is always top notch. My personal favorite is the short rib over mashed potatoes or breakfast. This is the first time we utilized the house car, to and from the WaMu event center. Our driver was lovely and it was so nice to be able to use the service. We were lucky it was available each time we requested it.
