The Hyatt at Olive 8 – review
Just three years old and the first fully LEED-certified hotel in Seattle, The Hyatt at Olive 8 was designed with ecotourism as its first priority. Everything from the eucalyptus wood in the lobby, to the wine served in the hotel’s restaurant, is locally and environmentally sensitively sourced.
The hotel has a bright and modern feel throughout, and natural light is used to its best advantage throughout the building.
With a pool, spa, extensive fitness centre, bar and restaurant there is no reason to leave the hotel, but if you do venture out you find yourself conveniently based in the business and shopping areas of Seattle.
- 13 suites with kingsize beds, separate office/sitting/entertainment area. The luxury bathrooms in the suites feature a TV screen above the basin.
- 266 standard guest rooms
- One of the best equipped central Seattle fitness suites.
- Yoga studio.
- Lap pool, jacuzzi, sauna.
- Elaia Spa with eco-friendly and organic treatments.
- “Urbane” restaurant and bar.
The Hyatt at Olive 8 has a modern, fresh feel throughout and is perfect for environmentally aware travellers who don’t want to compromise on quality or comfort.
Rooms are spacious and have the right mix of features for both business and leisure travellers and are designed to be long and narrow to make the best possible use of the space.
The hotel’s pool has the benefit of plenty of natural light, and with numerous comfortable loungers and chairs would be a great place for a grey day. It is limited to adults only for an hour in the morning and evening. The pool complex also includes a hot tub and saunas.
The spa is particularly luxurious for a city centre hotel spa, with a huge relaxation area, nine treatment rooms, a manicure / pedicure suite and a retail area.
The Urbane restaurant is owned and run by the hotel and features locally and sustainably sourced food. All the wine is from Washington state, which is considered second only to Californian wine.
Relax by the Hyatt’s tranquil indoor pool
Under the same management, a block away, is the Grand Hyatt hotel, a more traditional luxury hotel featuring dark wood and larger bedrooms. 113 of the hotel’s 425 rooms are suites.
The Grand Hyatt is more suited towards business travellers or those looking for a more traditional feel.
