At the Hyatt Olive 8 in Seattle, Washington a Hyatt Diamond Suite Upgrade (DSU) places you in the hotel’s entry level suite. Although entry level, this room is quite massive especially when you consider what other Hyatt’s consider an entry level suite. I had written ahead requesting a larger space because I needed to bring work with me unfortunately. I’m not entirely sure why I chose Seattle as the first leg on my around-the-world trip, but I have always wanted to visit and it was great catching up with friends who live in the city. I suppose the hobby of collecting frequent filer miles may seem strange to most, but it always comes into better focus once you start sharing the pictures!
The Hyatt Olive 8 comprises almost half of the Olive 8 building in downtown Seattle with the remaining higher floors being utilized as condominiums. The Luxury King Suite layout is a little strange in that it is an extraordinarily long unit–I’m sure there is a story behind it. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and not worn-feeling. There is no wonder why many bloggers always highlight the Category 4 Olive 8 was a great value to use a Chase Hyatt Credit Card free annual night.
The location was great, and the diamond breakfast benefit was even greater–nothing like ordering room service through your TV and then having the entire bill + gratuity comped. #thewaylifeshouldbe! I was also sent up a birthday welcome amenity in addition to the normal 1000 welcome points benefit (my normal choice).
And here are a few pictures of the touristy things I did including the Seattle Eye, the gum wall, Pike’s Place and the glass museum. The weather was gorgeous, and I was ecstatic that I would be able to use my Olloclip wide-angle lens addition to capture the moments for my Around-the-World 2016 iPhoto book.
