The Fairmont pallister is gorgeous. Extremly clean and staff is fantastic. I recommend trying to get this hotel through hotwire for a much better price. The only thing that was disappointing was that we couldn't even get a bottle of water for under $5. This was a road trip

Closest airport shuttle drop off point to your hotel.
Hi Gregg, We recommend using Allied airport shuttle. They have a downtown shuttle that will drop you off right outside the front doors of the hotel. The cost is $15 from the airport to the hotel and $10 from the hotel to the airport.

I checked out of my room in the morning and the hotel were more than happy to store my luggage until I left for the airport at 6pm whilst I went sightseeing. My luggage was securely stored in a locked room and I was given a receipt for each item. Staff were friendly and helpful.
