Grandeur and elegance reign supreme at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, a downtown Seattle institution that's hosted black tie galas as well as celebrity guests since the 1920s. It now hosts primarily families and business travelers who don't mind spending extra for old-world opulence.  

Guests are greeted with massive chandeliers, marble floors and spiral staircases. These opulent details help set the mood for an unmissable afternoon tea at the Georgian. 

Though there's no free Wi-Fi here, other amenities can't be beat. The restaurants are top-notch, the fitness center and indoor pool are huge, and the spa is lovely, focusing more on beauty treatments as opposed to wellness. Kids are well taken care of too, with little bathrobes in rooms and solid kids menu options at the restaurants. 

From the press:
  • "Exudes beautiful old-world elegance" -- Conde Nast Traveler
  • "Grand and stately ... this old-world hotel personifies class and elegance" -- Fodor's
  • "If your preferred aesthetic is grande dame rather than high design, this historic property—which has hosted black-tie galas since 1924—is your only choice in Seattle" -- Travel + Leisure
