If you're visiting Seattle soon, I can now personally recommend The Fairmont Olympic Hotel. I know, you're thinking, "Well, duh. AAA Five Diamond awards aren't given out to just any ole shack." Yes, but I grew up in this city. I've driven by this hoity-toity hotel a million times and have never been able to indulge.
However, due to a fabulous deal on Travelzoo (that's still going on, I might add), Hubby and I were able to snag a room in this posh pad for only $149/night. Add to that the free Executive Suite upgrade and chocolate-dipped strawberries delivered to our room for Hubby's birthday, and I'm encouraged to recommend that everyone take advantage of this high-brow living on a blue collar budget pronto. This is the life!
