The Fairmont Olympic Hotel, originally Olympic Hotel, is a historic hotel in downtown Seattle, Washington, occupying the city block between 4th and 5th Avenue and between University and Seneca Streets. It was built in 1924; in 1979, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
It was one of the original Western Hotels, later Western International and today Westin. It was completely restored in the 1980s, reopening as the Four Seasons Olympic Hotel. It retained that name for two decades, until it was sold and the new owners switched the management contract to Fairmont in 2003.
The open space on the north side of the hotel that now constitutes a driveway and formal entrance originally was the site of the Metropolitan Theatre.
