    Superb

    the complimentary services such as fruit and water and headsets in spa, coffee, milk and cookies when valet parking returned car. Staff was friendly, professional, and not pompous.

    Spa ran out of amenities in early evening (after all the families came with children): bottled water, fruit, hair brushes.

    Comfort, cleanliness, courteous helpful staff, attractive restful public areas. convenient location

    There was not particularly anything I disliked but a slightly bigger room would have been nice and at least one extra arm chair - so two could sit comfortably instead of one. The walls looked a little bare and could do with a few more pictures, however the beds were comfy and clean and the pillows soft and cushy as i like them ! and the linen was very good.

    Quality of the hotel staff, design of hotel, and room comfort

    The lack of a high quality coffee maker in the room

    Good

    Location is good. Nice having a gym in the hotel. Like the 12pm check-out, very civilized.

    It's 2010, do we really need to pay for internet access? In Seattle?? Grow up.

    Superb

    We loved the location of the hotel and the spacious rooms.

    The one area we thought could be improved is the first impression smell. We understand the hotel is not new, however, the smell from the carpets and surrounding decor in the lobby and hallways was that of a dingy older hotel.

    Fabulous

    Excellent service, good downtown location. I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing downtown Seattle accomodations at a reasonable price.

    The restaurant was "way" overpriced for the quality of its food.

    Fabulous

    It was a nice experience. We stayed last October there and were very impressed. We noticed many of the "extra details" that made our stay extra special last October (i.e. kids coloring book gift, nightly turn down service, cookies and milk from valet upon departure) were no more. I guess it's a sign of the times, but it's hard to believe that this is a 5 star hotel.

    Location. Was able to walk everywhere, and there are an abundance of activities and restaurants close by.

    3rd floor room had alot of street noise. Beautiful room, but higher would have been much quieter.

    Central location, the availability of parking and valet service. Spa/Pool was excellent. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

    Rooms were average. There was no coffee facility without ringing room service

    I joined the Fairmont Presidents Club before I went (free, on-line). Checked in on-line the previous day, room key awaited my apearance with the doorman, plus free WiFFi in room. Room with King bed was fabulous and huge. Bed was sooo comfortable! All you could wish for. Express check out was a dream. Beautiful hotel and highly recommended for those NOT on a budget.

    Fabulous

    Attention to detail, bath robes and slippers, an extremely comfortable bed, and friendly helpful staff.

    We found the breakfast overpriced and not to our taste. Bottle water in the room was very expensive. and as an out of town guest I never drink the local water, so we purchased water at the local store for half the price.
