"Friendly Staff, Great Location"

Situated in downtown Seattle, just a short walk to many Seattle attractions, including Pike Place Market and cruise ship terminals, the Fairmont Olympic is a fantastic hotel for families hoping to stay in the heart of the Seattle action.  The staff at the hotel offered exceptional ideas, tips and tricks for visiting the area with our kids, and made my family feel like very welcomed guests.

The rooms at the Fairmont Olympic are very lovely, decorated with a classic yet contemporary decor.  The beds were extremely soft and made for a fantastic night's sleep.  The large, luxurious bathroom and closet space gave us plenty of room to spread out our belongings and feel at home.  (The toilet running through the night was a bit too close to home, but we never did call maintenance to request a change.) Kids can get cozy in kid-sized bath robes, a feature that makes my three girls feel especially fancy and loved.  Upon check in, you'll also get a coupon for nighttime milk & cookies that can be redeemed from room service.  There is nothing fancier than late night milk and cookies in PJs and a plush bathrobe! :)  Families traveling with kids or babies can request tear free shampoo, diapers, baby toiletries, and much more.  We noted another reviewers desire for a coffee maker and one was supplied for us upon arrival (my husband does like an early morning cup of joe!)

Be sure to take advantage of the health club during your visit.  Your kids will love the indoor swimming pool, open until 8pm each night (9pm for guests over 14).  Kick boards and pool toys are available for use and you can enjoy complimentary bottled water and fresh fruit while poolside!  Kid's menus and kid-friendly options are available at every on site restaurant including The Georgian Restaurant, Shuckers, and The Terrace, the more casual of the three.  If you need to get between point A and point B, take advantage of the hotel car which took our family to Seattle Center without the hassle of hailing a taxi.  In addition to getting a dedicated drop and card for return, the driver was especially friendly to my children and offered his best tips and recommendations on what to do while visiting the city.

Throughout the year, numerous special offers are available for families including packages to local museums, theater, and attractions.  Check their website for availability.

Disclosure: I received a discounted media rate while staying at this hotel.  I was not required to state any particular view; all opinions are my own.

"Could not be better!"

Service at the Fairmont Hotel was truly superb.  The staff bent over backwards to make sure that our needs were met.  

We were particularly impressed with the well maintained and equipped fitness center, indoor pool and spa.  The complementary bottled water and local red delicious apples at poolside were such a nice touch.  The locker room was clean, well stocked with towels and toiletries.  

The rooms were spotless.  I do like a strong shower and and the water pressure could have been stronger for me personally.  The housekeeping kept us well taken care off the whole stay, down to filling our ice bucket.  I do like my coffee, so it was disappointing that our room didn't have a coffee maker in it.  We had a one bedroom suite - beware - the french doors that divide the room have not glass in them - no sound proof, not light proof.  If your kid needs a separate room, go for a bigger suite if you can afford it.

Location - could not have been better.  Easy access to Pioneer Square, Chinatown and more via subway (University Station).  It's a good thing because parking was insane at $26 a day.

We were impressed with all the services that the Fairmont offers for families.  Our son was well taken care of with his mini bathrobe, toothbrush and no tear shampoo.  He loved the cookies and milk.  They even had toys we could borrow.  If you don't want to lug all your baby gear on the plane, you'll be pleased to know that you can borrow the following items:  Baby carriers, Bibs, Car seats, Cribs  (complimentary), Diapers, Disposable baby bottles, Highchair, Infant bathtubs, Pacifiers, Playpens, Rubber sheets, Strollers, Thermometers, Toiletries, Vaporizers.

"WOW...do you want luxury Downtown Seattle"

Are you are looking for the cream of the crop hotel in downtown Seattle? Then Fairmont is your choice hands down! The pool area is incredible and the food is spectacular. Gorgeous older renovated hotel! The prices are very steep so be ready to pay big bucks!
