The Fairmont Olympic Hotel Review

Grand and stately, the Fairmont Olympic transports travelers to another time: with marble floors, brocade chairs, massive chandeliers, and sweeping staircases, this old-world hotel personifies class and elegance. Guest rooms are lovely and light filled, with French Country touches like pastel wallpaper and floral patterns. The well-heeled leisure or business traveler will find everything he or she needs here: elegant dining and afternoon tea at the Georgian, a fitness center with an indoor pool, a full-service business center, a day spa, and a shopping arcade. Kids get perks like child-size bathrobes.

    Landmark Hotel or Just Old and Beat Up?

    The lobby and restaurants are beautiful throwbacks to a bygone era. They transport you back in time. But the rooms are another story. They are in dire need of an upgrade and until this happens, it is hard to imagine shelling out so much money for a room needing this much work. I'd save my dollars next time around and go with the Seattle Sheraton. On a positive note, the staff were amazing and went out of their way to provide exceptional service; something you'd expect from a Fairmont Hotel.
