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
Drink tea under ornate crystal chandeliers at The Georgian, walk up and down the grand mahogany staircase, and feel like royalty sitting in the Fairmont's grand European lobby.
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.
