Peaceful in Seattle

Our time in Seattle was very enjoyable. Not only because of the city itself, but because of our stay at the Hyatt at Olive 8. First, the hotel and our room was extremely clean and well-maintained. The overall look and feel of the hotel is modern and swanky. The staff was very accomadating, as well as providng excellent customer service. The hotel restaurant Urbane, has fresh ingredient, wonderful service, and appealing decor. The Hyatt at Olive 8 is worth the added cost for a great hotel experience.

Hyatt on Olive 8 in Seattle

We had a great time. We were really surprised how beautiful the Hyatt was; it reminded us of a little boutique hotel that you get for a lot more money per night. We were also happy that the building was "green", in the way it is built, their practices to save energy, water and recycle, all without the guests feeling like they have to give up luxury in order to "go green". Recommend Highly!

First time in Seattle

we booked a trip to Seattle because my fiancé or I have never been there before. We had no idea what to expect. We were there for five days and saw so many sights such as the World famous Public Market and the Space Needle. The city itself was very clean. Shopping, whether it was actually done or just window shopping, all around it was fantastic! We will definitely go back again!! We also have considered it a place to move to in the future.

Great for Wedding Guests

We chose the Olive 8 as the preferred place to stay for our wedding guests. We couldn't have been more pleased. Great location, friendly staff, really nice rooms. It's not the cheapest option, but well worth the price.

Take the Link Light Rail from the airport to Westlake station (3 short blocks from hotel) for only $2.75, instead of the $40 cab fare.

Lovely hotel

I booked this hotel as an extra night of my weekend getaway. I'm working downtown Seattle and this allowed me to walk the work the next morning. Sunday evening I walked around the corner to Von's, a restaurant I really enjoy, and had a lovely dinner while watching the young wildlife at the bar. The room was beautiful, clean and quiet and I was able to get it quite dark (not like other hotels). I got a wonderful night's sleep.
