Lonely Planet review

Built in 1924, the Fairmont Olympic is listed with the National Register of Historic Places, so it’s not too surprising that it feels like a museum of old money. Over the years, remodels to the bathrooms and the main lobby have kept the place functional without destroying the period glamor of its architecture.

With 450 rooms and every imaginable service, this place is certainly a splurge, but it’s worth exploring even if you don’t stay here – have an oyster at Shuckers, the oak-paneled hotel bar. The palpable decadence of the place has been balanced out lately by earth-friendly policies such as free parking for hybrid cars.

Our independent authors have visited Fairmont Olympic Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Pike Place Market & Waterfront.
