My wife and I stayed here for one night for a little escape. I booked a package that included parking and given that parking is usually $65 a night I paid less than what I usually pay for a Hampton Inn when I travel for the Fairmont. Taking into account the low price it was well worth it, but for their normal prices I would steer away.
Check-in was smooth and quick even though there was a long line when we arrived. We went up to our Standard room and at first glance the room was small but well appointed and a fairly large bathroom. One thing I never got was why hotels don't use fitted sheets for the bed. Well the Fairmont uses fitted sheets, but guess what they don't fit! After laying on the bed the top part of the sheets immediately popped right off to expose the mattress, gross! That is really not acceptable for a hotel of this class although I have yet to find many hotels that figure out how to get sheets that fit correctly. The bed and pillows were actually pretty comfortable for the one night. The other issue we noticed was the water pressure which I think was mentioned in other reviews. While taking a shower we lost the water completely for a second multiple times. I have never experienced an issue like this before and again seems crazy at any hotel, but especially at a Fairmont.
