Hipmunk Staff Review

Nearby W Seattle offers comparable upscale accommodations and is pet-friendly, as is Fairmont Olympic Hotel. However, the W Seattle does not have a swimming pool on-site, while Fairmont Olympic Hotel has a pool in its first-class health club and spa.

Expert Reviews
The "grande dame of Downtown", this "stately" Italian Renaissance "landmark" "takes you back to a different, refined era" with "unbeatable" service and "spacious", "elegant" rooms.
It has a grand lobby with architecture that evokes the 1920s (the hotel opened in 1924), an impressive clientele list that includes JFK, and one of the oldest oyster bars in the city.
Afar Magazine
The building that is now the Fairmont Olympic was once the original campus of the University of Washington. Transformed into a stately hotel in 1924, it has since remained a popular place...
