Celebrating The Olympic Hotel's 80th year of operation, this book traces the history of the hotel's site (the original campus of today's University of Washington), the public campaign to build a "community hotel," the numerous events and celebrities it has hosted, and The Olympic's rebirth in the 1980s to the present.

"Life in The Olympic" reflected events beyond its doors: the Roaring Twenties, the dark days of the Great Depression, patriotic rallies and bond drives during World War II, the promise and exhilaration of the 1962 World's Fair, Seattle's urban renaissance of the 1970s and 1980s, and protests and debates from the Vietnam War to WT.
