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.
