Rooms in the original building offer guests the full historic experience, although the new Bermudiana House provides the same level of comfort. And the hotel offers easy access to the shops and restaurants of downtown Hamilton.

Gold Club treatment at Hamilton Princess

My stay at the hotel was during hurricane Bill. The staff handled everything well and was helpful in every way. I was a Gold Club guest which I'm sure helped the level of the positive experience. If you can afford it - it's worth it! Access to the Southampton Princess was also a nice perk - great private beach.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

It's hard to get around in Bermuda. No sidewalks = walking can be dangerous. Rented scooters are also suicidal, as are pedal bikes. The roads are very narrow making it hard for even cars and buses. Taxis are very expensive, and buses are OK but you need to know what you are doing and where you are going. Don't know how folks get around really!???

Classy, Beautiful and Fun!!

Staff was very attentive and personalized experience. Great atmosphere! Enjoyed live music in the lobby lounge, pictoresque breakfast at the outdoor restaurant and a relaxing swim in the saltwater pool. Appreciated convenience of the ferry ride over to the Southampton beaches and short walk to Front Street shopping and nightlife.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

While the hotel food is great and should be sampled, make arrangements for lunch/dinner to eat in one of the several restaurants within walking distance. Pretty much all the restaurants in town also include 17% gratuity on the check regardless of party size, so be mindful.

Perfect vacation

The location of the hotel was terrific! It was a short walk to the downtown area and all of it's great restaurant options. We loved the 2 pools, especially the salt water pool.

Fairmont Hamilton Princess

The hotel service was great-the front desk always had time to answer our questions and provide helpful tips. Location wise, the hotel was perfect for us. Being in the middle of Hamilton allowed us to travel by bus or ferry with ease.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you plan on traveling around the island, the best value is a bus/ferry pass. For example, a four day adult pass (for unlimited bus and ferry use)is only $35. Using public transportation was a really great way to see the island. A very important tip: blue bus stop poles mean the bus is headed away from Hamilton, pink means it's headed towards the city.

Good lpcation for shoping

We stayed in the GOLD rooms and I would highly recomend this upgrade. The GOLD rooms provided a full breakfast, afternoon tea and evening canapes. These goodies came with an excellent staff in attendance.

Relaxing, but average for price

We enjoyed our trip to Bermuda-especially for the relaxation! We didn't like that there was no beach to enjoy at the hotel. You can take the ferry (25 minutes) to the sister hotel and enjoy a beautiful beach. Pools were average; we liked that there was a saltwater pool available. Fitness center very small. Staff seemed bothered by guests...........

Go into nearby town (a few minute walk) and enjoy the restaurants there vs. the hotel. We loved Portofino and Harry's.
