    Great pool and a hotel that thrives in its opulence. Great service . If you want to work out & didn't pack for it, they'll help you out at no charge by brining you clothes And running shoes to borrow

    Working late in the room and need some food? Don't get the room service. It is overpriced and the food isn't all that good. Friendly staff tho.

    Beautiful hotel, I've stayed in many hotels but never noticed one that smells so good. Enjoyed live entertainment in the lobby bar. Lovely entrance and sunken bar/lounge, pool setting is also nice....

    Disappointed with the shower at the Fairmont my shower kept going cold on me and would not get hot? Other then that the room is nice and the bar downstairs is fun. Just cold showers suck.

    Incredibly slow service. Checked bags at bell desk as we were early for check in. Once checked in, bags never came and I went down to get them myself. Called down for extra sheets/pillows. Never came.

    Beautiful lobby, BUT very small gym, huge letdown for a Fairmont Hotels. It's a great value if you can get the $79-99 corporate rate seasonally. I was happy with the service and ambiance.

    Rooms in the South Tower are newer and nicer than the main building

    Order the tasty"golden mojito." If you order food make sure to order the saucer of ranch. Possibly the best ranch I've ever had. No joke.
