BEFORE you ask that quaestion, you'd better check and compare the nightly rates for each. FAIRMONT hotels has been sharply discounting rates this summer for both their Southampton and Hamilton hotels.

I like the Elbow Beach Hotel a LOT (and would ordinarily suggest it rather than the FSH)...but the rates for the Fairmont Southampton Hotel might just be the 'tipping point' in a decision making process between the two properties

I also like elbow beach better, but is more expensive. The newer updated rooms are also pricier.

I am also looking for some opinions between the two. My husband and I are currently booked at the Fairmont Southampton and are bringing our 10-month-old next month (October 2009). We chose the hotel because of the private beach and ferry to Hamilton since car seats would not be on cabs or buses. However, there are no junior suites available for the length of our stay (available for 2 of 4 nights). The pricing for a junior suite at both locales are about the same, so wondering if I should switch the reservation to Elbow Beach, instead since we aren't likely to go to Hamilton that often anyhow with the little one.

Stay at Elbow Beach. It is much better. I really didn't care for the Fairmont. I think everything from the beach access to food and rooms is better at Elbow beach.
