The Olympic is the grande dame of Seattle hotels
I've been coming to the Olympic for 20+ years and have stayed here several dozen times. It has had ups and downs. It's on an "up" right now after the renovation this year. The rooms have a sleek contemporary look, the furnishings are first-rate, the thermostats are now readable (the old ones had ridiculously tiny digits), electrical outlets are everywhere now (no more need to unplug the coffeemaker to charge phones), the hot water in the shower is amazingly fast compared to before the renovation, and the staff continues to be first-rate. Visit a few times, and at least one of the senior doormen -- Danny, Bill, or Thien -- will seemingly remember you forever. The dining room food is again top-notch. After a period of coasting on its past glory, the Olympic is again earning every available star.

Such nice words from such a loyal guest. Thank you not only for your kind words but for staying with us for 20+ years. We are always happy to hear when especially or loyal guest enjoy the renovations but love the tradition of seeing the same doormen who remember you from previous visits. We will make sure Danny, Bill and Thien know you mentioned them and appreciate all they do to make your visits first-rate time after time. We cannot thank you enough for being such a loyal, long time guest and we hope we can welcome you back very soon.
