What is luxury to you? Is it intricate decorations and crown mouldings on high ceilings, or is it something clean, modern and breath-taking?
If you are a fan of old world charm and are looking for an award winning luxury hotel in Seattle, Fairmont Seattle oozes old school charm and elegance, and they have a truckload of awards to prove their excellence.
Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle
With Keurig coffee machines in each room and voicemail options if you’re visiting on business, Fairmont offers exceptional accommodation. If you’re there to party, you’ll probably enjoy the fact that breakfast runs until noon on the weekends, giving you the opportunity to sleep off last night.
Fairmont caters to a variety of guests, from corporate teams to wedding parties, but if you’re looking for an upscale hotel, in central Seattle, with an old world luxury, this is it (as long as you can afford a room).
About the Hotel
Not just a hotel, Fairmont is actually one of the city’s most celebrated historic landmarks. You’ll see the history, well maintained, everywhere you look. If you can’t afford to stay there, you may want to step inside the reception area, just to breathe in the rich expensive hotel air.
Contrasting the antiquity of the hotel, Fairmont Olympic Hotel is located in middle of modern downtown Seattle, close to Pike Place Market and many other popular sites.
Fairmont Seattle is host to two award-winning restaurants:
- The Georgian, an elegant AAA 4 Diamond restaurant, serving mainly French style cuisine, as well as a popular high tea in the afternoon.
- Shuckers, one of first oyster bars to ever come to Seattle, which is more relaxed than The Georgian.
Should You Go?
Established in 1924, this hotel is still a favorite for major corporate events, hosted within the 28,000 square feet of meeting space, and weddings with Honeymoon packages available at any of the many Fairmont resorts and hotels.
Whether you’re having an event or you just want to celebrate yourself with a stay at one of the oldest and most elegant old world hotels in the area, there is a lot to enjoy at Fairmont Seattle. If you’d prefer a more modern hotel, Fairmont Olympic Hotel will not fit your taste.
