We never tire of the spectacular views of the Seattle skyline and have been coming to Seattle for the past 9 years. Our daughter attended the University of Washington and never came home.(We have adjusted to this fact over time) Craig and I have discovered over the last few years that we prefer to stay at the Hyatt at Olive 8 in Seattle and have stayed there so often that the barista in the coffee bar thought we were residents of the building.
Location, location, location is probably first on the list of reasons why we stay at the Hyatt at Olive 8. In addition, the accommodations are sleek and urban, alway immaculate and the contemporary bathrooms are appointed with polished stone and modern fixtures. Craig and I both work from “home” (wherever that may be) and the rooms are perfectly appointed with all of the tools of an office that we need.
The hotel’s sleek modern design is environmentally responsible and was the first LEED certified hotel in Seattle. Boasting innovative energy and water saving features, this hip, green, downtown Seattle hotel welcomes business and as well as leisure travelers.
The Hyatt at Olive 8 is located in the heart of downtown Seattle and only blocks away from virtually any attraction you would like to visit. Pike Place Market, The Space Needle, shopping, delicious restaurants, Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill are just a few of the nearby sights.
We were fortunate to experience the ultimate in hotel luxury by staying in the exquisite 1,600 square ft President’s Suite which was designed to offer all the comforts of home in an upscale urban setting. It comes complete with a dining table with seating for eight, a gorgeous wet bar, cozy fireplace, a game table and an incredible office for me! The master bedroom is lovely and is paired with a very large luxurious bathroom. What a treat to experience luxury of this magnitude and this enormous suite is nearly the size of our house, yet feels warm and inviting.
Craig stays for business over 150 nights per year in Hyatt properties around the United States. We use our hotel points for travel in Europe, Australia and other parts of the world. Loyalty to a brand definitely has its benefits!

My favorite lunch at Urbane, the Hyatt Restaurant
The chic chain link design of the entrance of Urbane.
Staying here as frequently as we do has allowed us the opportunity to observe the consistent, friendly, “go way beyond” service of the Hyatt staff. I should have written about the hotel much sooner, they deserve all the business they can handle. We have stayed in every type of room they offer and enjoyed them all. When you are planning your next trip to Seattle and are looking for topnotch accommodations, please check out the Hyatt at Olive 8.
