Room service at Fairmont Olympic Hotel is notably tasty and features selections from its two signature restaurants, The Georgian and Shucker’s, along with a variety of menu options suited to those with dietary restrictions, all while highlighting local, organic and seasonal products.
For breakfast, enjoy treats like steak and eggs or an omelet loaded with shrimp and crab, ultimate granola with banana brûlée, smoked salmon on a bagel or mountain huckleberry pancakes. Later in the day, sample your way through the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's all-day dining menu, beginning with appetizers like Pacific Northwest clam chowder, a lusciously loaded Louie and a Walla Walla onion soup with local triple cream cheese crouton. Alternatively, you can design your own sandwiches and pizzas, though if you aren’t the creative type, you’ll find options like a crab melt, a salmon burger and a smoked turkey club.
Entrees, meanwhile, feature homey favorites like buttermilk fried chicken, Alaskan king salmon with shaved apples and local mushrooms, and meatloaf with whipped potatoes. However, if you’re ordering dinner from room service, we definitely recommend choosing off the Shucker’s or The Georgian’s selections. You’ll find seafood favorites like pan-fried oysters and a whole roasted Dungeness crab with rosemary potatoes at the former, while the latter offers upscale fare like roast filet of beef with shallot and oxtail braisage and seared scallops with truffle-bacon butter sauce. Desserts include classic favorites like Washington apple pie a la mode and a chocolate nut fudge brownie, but our all-time favorite dessert here is the Shucker’s signature old-fashioned chocolate fudge cake.
We are huge fans of the luxury Seattle hotel’s room service menu, because in addition to serving downright tasty food, it specifically caters to guests with dietary restrictions. In addition to its regular offerings, the room service menu features dishes (both on the breakfast and all-day dining menus) for those adhering to gluten free, macrobiotic, heart-healthy, raw and vegan diets with items like spinach salad rolls with shoyu vinaigrette and marinated beet carpaccio. Traveling can be challenging when you can’t eat everything, and it’s nice to know that the chefs here have provided options for everyone.
