Have read the posts and before I book would like validation of my choice. I'm, a septuagenarian woman travelling alone, not interested in night-life/pools/spas. I am thinking of the Fairmont because the rooms have balconies (open?) fancy the views and after a day sightseeing would happily settle for relaxation in the room before going out for dinner. The location seems good with the MTV nearby. Spending a week, my first visit. Have tickets to the symphony and plan on sightseeing, no interest in shopping. Thanks in advance for your input.
