Upon entering the lobby and walking into a grand entrance one would believe the best is yet to come. Unfortunately other than decent looking hallways the rooms are a BIG disappointment. Tired and dated one can see that they were very nice at one time but in desperate need of a complete renovation. The bathrooms are very dated with very small showers a little bigger than a phone booth. The tiles and faucets are from the sixties and need to be replaced. The drain was rusted, the sink cracked and overall not so nice.
Comfort is a big thing for me and I was not comfortable at all in my room. The a/c was off when I arrived so the room I entered was warm and stuffy. Because the a/c system is so old, the room never cooled down to a comfortable temperature. My friends room was equally warm so I suspect its a problem throughout the hotel. The bed was not comfortable and the linens looked old and tired. The ice machine didn't work on floor 11 so it was inconvenient having to search for another machine that worked. Minibar is a nice feature however the "restocking fee" in addition to the pricy items make it unaffordable. All and all a big disappointment. There are more updated hotels in the area and you're probably better off with one of them over the "Fairmont".
