A destination in itself, The Fairmont Olympic is one of Seattle's most classic luxury hotels. Located in a building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Fairmont Olympic is bursting with opulence, from the serene indoor pool to two critically acclaimed restaurants.

Situated in the heart of the city, The Fairmont Olympic has a well-trained staff to help guests make the most out of their time in Seattle. The staff can assist visitors in experiencing local flavorófrom outdoor activities like biking, kayaking and hiking to cultural interests such as Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, Seattle Art Museum, and festivals that take place throughout the year.

The Fairmont Olympic features 450 well-appointed guestrooms and suites that look out onto the courtyard, city skyline or financial district. Perfect for the business traveler, the rooms are equipped with high-speed wireless Internet access, complimentary for Fairmont Presidentís Club members.

The hotel is also considered to be a favorite Seattle institution for weddings and events. Since 1924, the Fairmont Olympic has hosted many special occasions in their impressive meeting spaces spanning 26,000 square feet. The historic Spanish Ballroom, stylish Metropole, and the sophisticated St. James boardroom are among the venues ready to host large or small business or social gatherings.

When you get hungry, try The Georgian, an elegant French-inspired restaurant featuring Northwest cuisine. For 20 years, the restaurant has earned a AAA 4 Diamond distinction and features an intimate private dining area for up to 12 guests. You can also indulge in The Georgian Afternoon Tea, offered seven days a week and includes your choice of tea, and a selection of sandwiches, savories and sweets.

If you're looking for something more casual, Shuckers Oyster Bar is one of the oldest oyster bars in the city. Ten varieties of oysters with ten different preparations accompany daily specials and crisp microbrews. For something on the lighter side, have a drink and appetizer at The Terrace, which has live piano music during cocktail hour Thursday through Saturday.

The hotel offers special packages to accommodate all kinds of travelers, whether on business or a family vacation. With award-winning dining, ideal location to attractions, and business and leisure amenities, The Fairmont Olympic is giving guests the true Seattle experience.

I've always loved Fairmont hotels. They just need to make sure to keep them updated so that they do not get outdated.
