Located in a 12-story Italian Renaissance–style building, the centrally located Fairmont is one of the most luxurious hotels in Seattle. The 450 rooms have a lavish residential feel; marble bathrooms are outfitted with deep soaking tubs and basketfuls of Penhaligon's products. 'There are two restaurants on-site: the formal Georgian, with French-inspired Northwest cuisine; and Shuckers, a clubby, oak-paneled oyster bar. Service is top-notch, with fun little extras like a complimentary shoe shine and chocolate-covered strawberries at turndown. Refreshingly, children are welcome; there are plush child-size robes at the concierge desk, and milk and cookies are on the house upon check-in.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
The "excellent location" of this Italian Renaissance property with 17-foot Palladian windows puts it close to the waterfront and the Seattle Art Museum. "It's well-designed and the lobby is classy." Accommodations in rose, soft yellows, ivory, and seaside blues and greens are accented by antique furniture in oak and cherry wood. "Our room was fine, but we had a view of the air-conditioning system, which wasn't so nice." Shuckers has a tin ceiling and serves clam chowder, halibut and chips, and pan-fried oysters.
