    We are repeat visitors and usually pretty happy with our stay. This time we were definitely disappointed. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room and site left a lot to be desired. Despite being a repeat customer we were given a room with a view of a wall that left the room dark and dreary. It was also uncomfortably warm in the room at night as the thermostat even at the lowest setting. The whole lower level was under construction. We had to enter from a side door that was quite a distance from the actual entrance where we were dropped off. Thank goodness it wasn’t raining. There was no mention of the construction when I booked the room. We will be staying somewhere else on our next visit .

    Fairmont overrated

    Well when I stayed here recently, this hotel had construction the whole entire time and forced people to walk to the side of the hotel to walk inside to the front desk. I also was told that they wanted to save and be efficient from cleaning services so you had to request it, which is what you pay for. At the end of my stay, I left two things in my room, and I had to cal about 10 times to each someone and fill out a report to get my things. They sent a lost and found report through email, usually a hotel sends it as a courteous, but I was charged 30 dollars to send my items back to me, and I was thinking it would be 1-2 business days, come to find out my items are taking a whole week to come back to me.
