The front desk staff and hotel are lovely. My room was comfortable and the view spectacular.
I have to say though, the restaurant/lounge food and staff were not great. Service was poor and food not what I expect from Fairmont. Thankfully there are many other choices and the everything else Fairmont was great.
If you need a driver, make sure you ask for Ivan and his Town car. He is a lovely man and worth every penny for my trip to the airport.
My husband and I stayed at The Fairmont for the first time in October. This was probably the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. Our room was on the 22nd floor of the Tower right next to the Diplomat Suite/Tony Bennett Suite. Our stay included the breakfast each morning which was amazing! It is in a great location. Good restaurants within walking distance. We also ate at the Tonga Room which was good and a very cool experience. I would definitely stay here again!
