wanted more from this hotel!

Paid a lot for a room that I expected to be more luxurious. Good location but ultimately I felt it was not nearly as special a stay as I was hoping for a big birthday weekend. No vanity kit in the bathroom to older bath tub left me feeling cold. Speaking of cold. ..the hot water kept dropping out! Seriously!? There was also a champagne debacle, I'd ordered some with chocolate strawberries as a birthday surprise. ..it took 6 HOURS to get it. ... obviously they got lost in the shuffle. Wanted more!

Great downtown hotel

We needed a hotel close to the airport and the baby shower we were attending. The Fairmont fit the bill perfectly. The hotel is imposing and grand, the rooms are good sized, the service is impeccable, and the value for money is very hard to beat. We made a good choice.

One of the nicest hotels I've ever been to.

This Hotel was plush, and absolutely ultra clean. The room was spacious and we'll stocked with drinks and snacks. The bathroom had plenty of towels and robes. I have to say again, the absolute cleanest and most comfortable hotel. Sure it costs 20 whole dollars more than some if the other hotels next door but it is still extremely affordable and so worth it.

If you want an absolutely amazing breakfast ask the concierge for directions to Flames. It's just a short walk away and totally worth it. They have the best staff and great prices.

Exceptional

Really enjoyed my stay, can't wait to go back to this establishment, I had so much fun, and it was wonderful walking right outside to the Jazz festival, all of the fun is centered around this hotel, can't get any better than that. And the room was exceptional, large, roomy, clean and the bed was quite comfortable, the staff was over the top...

Good location, average room

great location in downtown. Phone in our room didn't work (can't call front desk or room service), there was no coffee maker (told front desk at checkout and they said all rooms should have it), and there is no light switch at bedside (you have to go turn off each lights then go back to bed. Most 4-star hotels have a switch by bedside that turns off all lights).
