Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Olympia Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Olympia, WA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Olympia hotel for each day and each star rating category.

The area upon which Olympia was built was once home to the Lushootseed-speaking people. Europeans first visited the area in 1792 during a charting expedition, and settlers began claiming land as early as 1846. By 1850, the residents decided on the name Olympia for the town due to the community's view of the Olympic Mountains. Over the years, Olympia has become a hub for musicians and artists and has been named one of the best college towns in the U.S. thanks to its abundance of outdoor activities and vibrant downtown.

Whatever your reasons for visiting Olympia, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to explore everything this wonderful capital city has to offer.

Best Time to Visit Olympia, WA

The Pacific Northwest might be known for gray, rainy skies, but the weather fluctuates throughout the year. July and August bring sunny skies and glorious weather, making the summer months an ideal time for outdoor recreation. There's still a slight chance of rain, of course, so be sure to bring your umbrella regardless of the time of year you come to Olympia. Keep in mind, though, that hotel rates tend to go up in the summer as an influx of travelers visit the area. You can reduce some of these costs by booking your trip well in advance.

September is generally considered the area's shoulder season because the summer tourist crowds have tapered off, but the skies are often still cloudless. If you plan on exploring any of the nearby Olympic Mountains, you can still find flowers in bloom, making September the perfect month for a hike. You can also enjoy reduced hotel rates.

Washington State's infamous rainy season is primarily between October and early July, but don't let that deter you from visiting. Olympia has many indoor attractions that are worth seeing as you seek a reprieve from the rain. During the winter, ski season kicks into high gear, but rain can still be heavy during the winter months, so pack appropriately.
