A family member booked this hotel for wedding guests. My room was spacious, luxurious and excellently appointed. The common areas are incredible. Beautiful pool area, with smaller off-shooting areas for semi-private parties, a wonderful gym featuring indoor space with lots of equipment, flowing onto a large outdoor veranda with more machines and stretching space. Restaurant had delicious breakfast. Many more shops and services available than there was time to enjoy.

The Fairmont is all about service and location.
Located right on ocean avenue, a 10 minute walk to the Pier and Shopping Centre.
OK, the rooms may be a little tired (but a great view over the beach to the pier) and the elevators incredibly slow, but who cares when you enter a hotel where everyone is so friendly and helpful. No matter whether reception, bar, valet parking, smiles all round and only ever too happy to help. On arrival the room was not quite ready, so they took us to the sun terrace and gave us drinks and lunch on the house - whatever we wanted from the menu.
I'll be staying here again next time I'm in town.
