It is another grand Fairmont Hotel. Fairmont is different than most chains because each hotel has its own unique and distinct feel. The rooms are very spacious, and the hotel is is the centre of the city. I had a few qualms with my stay, some are specific to this property and others are issues with Fairmont as a whole.
1. Parking at $47 a night is theft. Anything over $35 is egregious, even in Seattle, a place that is famous for expensive parking.
2. All Fairmont properties seem to be designed for the short in stature. I am 6'2 and Fairmont is the one hotel where I can never find a shower head that is more than an inch taller than me. It is ridiculous.
3. Booked the hotel through Expedia. Apparently, that disallows you from enjoying the benefits of being a President's Club member. That is stupid. An airline will give me points/miles regardless of what mechanism I book through. It should be the same for hotels.
