Spent two nights here on a business trip. Overall, it was ok, but everything felt a bit dated and somewhat run down. My room (908) was at the far end of the "spa wing", which was a long long walk from the main part of the hotel. My room was ok, although it was impossible to adjust the AC to a comfortable temperature. It bottomed out at 68F, which was a bit warmer than my preferences for sleeping comfortably. Additionally, the wifi was just about unusable. It would work for about 15 seconds out of every minute, and only got worse later in the day. Breakfast was obscenely expensive. $19 for eggs benedict? And it was easily the worst eggs benedict I've ever had. Not even a full English muffin (just 1/2?!?) underneath. The shower curtain rod was broken in my room, such that the curtain always slid to one side on its own. The desk light bulb didn't work.
The staff were generally friendly and helpful. Hopefully the facilities will be updated once Fairmont takes over.
