A Seattle icon that has been around longer than the famed Space Needle, Fairmont Olympic Hotel was founded in 1924, providing the Pacific Northwest with decades of memory-making stays.
Before even stepping foot inside the 450-room Fairmont Olympic Hotel, guests are impressed with the hotel’s convenient location. It is steps from Link Light Rail, which provides easy access to the airport as well as Lumen Field, and the Seattle Center Monorail. There, tourists won’t want to miss a trip up the Space Needle and wandering through MoPop (Museum of Pop Culture). At the latter, guests can enjoy limited-time exhibits like Hidden Worlds: The Films of LAIKA (through Summer 2024), Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop (through January 2024) and much more. Just a short walk from the hotel, Pike Place Market awaits, as well as the Seattle Waterfront, home to the Seattle Great Wheel and the adorable creatures at the Seattle Aquarium.
The hotel’s stunning historic architecture sets it apart among the surrounding buildings, a regal quality it carries indoors. Its rooms are gorgeously appointed with oversized bathrooms, lovely artwork and lighting fixtures and subtle touches that lend a bit of glamour to one’s stay. Beautiful tufted furniture in rosy pinks and jewel tones, majestic black-and-white flooring and elegant railings and swirling staircases welcomes guests to the lobby. The centerpiece of the space is the Olympic Bar, offering a social setting for travelers, upscale bar bites and a refined cocktail menu (available until midnight most nights).
Even beyond Olympic Bar, Fairmont Olympic Hotel offers other on-site locales for drinking and dining. 4th Avenue Espresso Bar dishes up sweet and savory eats for your morning, alongside coffee; Shuckers Oyster Bar has the distinction as being one of Seattle’s oldest and most preeminent oyster bars; and The George is a brasserie-inspired restaurant that will easily take its rightful place among any diner’s list of most-exquisite dining experiences. At The George, a fantastic wine and cocktail list is paired with the likes of seared scallops, bucatini nero, rabbit agnolotti and seasonal local oysters in a beyond-beautiful setting. Best of all, The George has a way of somehow being casual enough for a family dinner or sophisticated enough for a date night or a special celebration.
On the lowest level the hotel awaits a sumptuous surprise in Penelope & The Beauty Bar, a day spa that boasts a brand-new salon and boutique area. Though a full gamut of treatments are available–from body wraps and massages to sugaring and nail services–the Red Carpet Treatment spa package is 75 minutes of bliss. The package combines dry brushing with a hydrating wrap and a customized facial to ensure guests are ready for their big event–or completely relaxed for enjoying the rest of their Seattle escape at Fairmont Olympic Hotel.
