A sanctuary of grandeur in the hubbub of Seattle. Shops and restaurants surround the hotel, and all the city’s best-loved attractions are within walking distance, including the waterfront, Pike Place Market and Seattle Art Museum.

Fairmont Olympic is a 1920s architectural masterpiece that still has buckets of old-world glamour—opting to stay at The Olympic cocoons you in luxury. From the moment you step into the lobby, you get the sense you’re staying at one of Seattle’s plushest hotels. The 450 spacious guestrooms are elegant and stylish. The same high-end, classic style features throughout, whether you opt for a standard room or splurge on a suite. Large, marble-clad bathrooms ooze sophistication and come complete with luxe Le Labo toiletries. For a hotel of this size, it’s perhaps unsurprising that there’s an array of facilities. There’s a decadent lobby bar, an oyster bar, a restaurant, and an espresso bar. Penelope & The Beauty Bar, The Olympic’s huge day spa and wellness centre, is on hand to soothe away stress. While The Olympic celebrates its art deco heritage, it’s also got an eye on the future and has introduced a range of sustainability initiatives. Notably, the hotel has an apiary, where they harvest honey from 180,000 bees to use in the Olympic’s bars and restaurants. Locally Paid Fees & Taxes: Expect to pay approximately $23 per room per night for hotel resort fees and local taxes.
