CONTEMPORARY FULL-SERVICE VENUE IN THE HEART OF WASHINGTON’S CAPITAL CITY
The Hotel RL Olympia, located in the center of Olympia, Washington, makes for an idyllic urban retreat where guests are made to feel like city natives. Its downtown location makes the hotel ideal for exploring all that Olympia has to offer, from one of the 700 parks to the variety of unique shops and restaurants.
Hotel RL Olympia has plenty of space to host events of all sizes. Their largest room, the Forest Ballroom, has 7,500 square feet of space that can accommodate up to 1,000 people for a reception or 700 people theater-style. On the other end of the spectrum, the Peninsula Room can seat up to 15. This room is ideal for more intimate meetings or breakout sessions. The hotel provides free WiFi for its guests, and audiovisual equipment is available for those planning a meeting.
Guests can relax in one of the hotel’s 193 luxurious rooms, available in a variety of configurations from standard queen and double queen rooms to suites with Jacuzzis or sleeper sofas. There are also rooms with accessibility features such as roll-in showers providing comfort for all their guests needs. The hotel is also pet-friendly.
The Hotel RL Olympia’s on-site restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, making it a delicious and convenient option when guests are looking for a bite to eat. The hotel is also home to a lounge, as well as Victrola Coffee Roasters, giving guests a variety of options for food and beverage just within the hotel itself.
What sets the Hotel RL Olympia apart from other hotels is the Living Stage – a space for lectures, performances and demonstrations from members of the community. The Living Stage incorporates authors, artists, musicians, community leaders, start-ups and more into their lineup, which transforms the area into a place to engage with aspiring local talents and Olympia’s leaders. Events happen year-round at the Living Stage, so there is always something to look forward to.
The Hotel RL Olympia is part of Project Wake Up Call, an initiative started to help end homelessness one new hotel opening at a time. Project Wake Up Call and their Olympia partner, SideWalk, are ways for guests to get involved and learn more about the community around them as well as have a lasting impact on the lives of those around them.
