“Pink Palace” on the edge of Hamilton harbor

Old-world style permeates this hotel, set among palm trees and tropical gardens on the edge of Hamilton harbor. The hotel, known to locals as "The Pink Palace," opened its doors on Jan. 1, 1885. 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.

Highlights
  • Unique historic waterfront hotel
  • Freshwater and saltwater pools
  • Complimentary ferry to private beach club at the Fairmont Southampton
  • Complimentary use of fitness center
  • Free high-speed Internet access

The 410 rooms and suites offer a variety of views of harbor, city, and gardens, many with private balconies. All rooms offer a marble bathroom, walk-in closet, plush bathrobes, coffee maker, and high-speed Internet connections. Guests enjoy elegant British colonial décor throughout and sumptuous Miller Harris bath and beauty products. Fairmont Gold level rooms have access to a private lounge with honor bar, cocktail hour canapés, exclusive concierge, and complimentary breakfast.

Features

Guests relax in an Adirondack chair by the freshwater and saltwater pools, soak in the harbor views, or take a few practice putts on the outdoor practice green. A ferry provides access to the Fairmont Southhampton, where guests make use of its beach club and other facilities. Guests also taxi to Riddell's Bay Golf and Country Club, the hotel's exclusive 18-hole partner, for a round of golf.

 

Harley's Restaurant serves traditional island favorites in its elegant indoor dining room, while Harley's Terrace features a casual lunch of salads and sandwiches plus dinner nightly at its harborside tables. The hotel's sophisticated lobby bar and restaurant, The Heritage Court, was praised by the New York Times as having the best afternoon tea in Bermuda.

Furniture were old and tatered

The one single chair I had IN THE ROOM the cover was torn. When one pays over $400 for a room the furniture should be in a good shape.

Expect just a bit more for that price range

Bermuda hotels are notoriously expensive but when you add various taxes, resort fees (?), etc., they border on the ridiculous. For that kind of price, free internet and a small bottle of water are a must, but you have to pay for both at the Hamilton Princess... Also, the furniture in the room is getting old and was all scratched up in places. Soundproofing is poor. I was awaken every morning at 5am by a neighbor taking a shower or housekeeping getting ready for their day....

Many pros but a few cons as well

The hotel is in an excellent location and it developed its status as a historic institution long before Fairmont bought it. Since Fairmont took over several years ago the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff has declined. If you happen to hit the "Heritage Court" (lobby restaurant/bar) when it is little more than half full don't expect service at all...you will have to literally flag down your waiter and catch him/her while he/she is running by. It's saving grace is that the food is usually good. The hotel's formal restaurant, Harley's, is in an inconvenient location and lacks character. Front desk staff can be extremely arrogant and unwilling to assist or even answer a basic question without making you feel as though they are doing you a tremendous favor. We have been staying at the Hamilton Princess for over twenty years (long before Fairmont took it over) and the unfortunate truth is that Fairmont has not been able to uphold its former glory. There are much more personal hotel/bed and breakfast options in and around Hamilton. If you are set on staying at one of the Fairmont properties, the South Hampton is far superior to the Hamilton location in every way.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Leave the Fairmont Hamilton Princess to enjoy truly excellent dining just up the street in the city of Hamilton. There are multiple options that beat the Fairmont's menus both in terms of dishes offered as well as in the character of the restaurant and the staff's hospitality.
