About

As of July 1, 2016, the historic 450-room Fairmont Olympic Hotel has finished its 25 million dollar renovation of all guestrooms and corridors. The renovation began in December of 2015 and stayed on schedule for the originally set completion date. Seattle is in the midst of a hotel renaissance, says General Manager Markus Treppenhauer. We are currently one of the fastest growing hotel cities in America, with thirteen hotels and over 2,300 rooms either under construction or in development within the downtown Seattle area. This is an exciting time for Seattle, and we here at Fairmont Olympic are thrilled to be establishing ourselves as the top luxury hotel option in the city. Fairmont Olympic Hotel brought on Parker-Torres Design Inc. for the renovations. This was Parker-Torres third Fairmont property, following the renovations of the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston and Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda. The goal was to create a classic interior with a modern twist, tipping its hat to the 91 year history of the hotel, says Barbara Parker, Principal for Parker-Torres Design Inc. We used grey tones and tourmaline accents, inspired by the natural colors of the Puget Sound, to create a current and timeless ambience in the guest rooms. The mid-century modern decor boasts elegant sitting areas with lavish couches and wing chairs, opulent marble bathrooms and of course Fairmonts classically plush beds. Rooms feature contemporary artwork that abstractly showcases Seattle and the Puget Sound. We wanted the rooms to feel like Seattle, says Director of Sales and Marketing Victoria Dyson. Often you walk into a city hotel and you could be anywhere, our goal was to have subtle color tones and artwork that makes you feel a sense of the area. This renovation is the largest that the Fairmont Olympic Hotel has seen since 1982 and is inviting guests and visitors of Seattle to Flirt with the past, while falling in love with the future.
