Negative Reviews

Carpets showing signs of wear and tear.

The Fairmont Olympic Hotel may have an impressive history but there is one aspect of the hotel that some guests find outdated: its carpets. A number of guests report that carpets are starting to look a little worn and, in parts of the hotel, give off a musty smell.

Additional cost for Wi-Fi not welcomed.

A number of guests are disappointed to learn that the hotel charges by the hour for Wi-Fi access. This disappointment is heightened for some, who describe the connection as slow and unusable. Guests signing up to the hotel's loyalty scheme can enjoy free Wi-Fi access.

On-site parking can be a costly affair.

According to reports, on-site parking at the hotel can be on the expensive side. Guests can opt for self-parking or valet parking, but both come with a steep price tag. On the positive side, in/out privileges are included with the cost.
