Ok, one bad thing: there were cookie crumbs on the table in my room when I arrived. I didn't see them until I was already unpacked, settled, but I did tell housekeeping, assuming they would come right up and clean. But no. The crumbs weren't gone till the next day. Despite that problem, the room was well cleaned the next... More

The 4* hotel market in Norrh America is well served by various chains that provide the comfort and certainty of a fairly uniform level of facilities that differ little between one brand and another. So for me the key to a successful stay at one of these establishments is the quality of the staff. And the men & women employed... More

Fantastic hotel, rooms and very nice restaurant with very good food. The staff is very helpful and kind. We enjoyed walking along the seaside and watching the seaplanes coming and going. You can easily walk into town and the shops are nearby. I can recommend this hotel to everybody.

We had our family Christmas dinner at the Fairmont in the Royal Suite. The staff went out of their way to make it memorable. Nick from housekeeping dressed up as Santa and paid us a visit. Our 3 young grandsons were thrilled. Christmas dinner in the suite was fabulous, thanks to chef Alessandro. Jason and Nicole were very accommodating when... More

Not much to fault here - very good service at front desk and in general, very large room and comfortable bed - bathroom maybe a bit dated. Great location for seaplane and heliport access and just a short walk to the shops as well - would definitely recommend and would stay here again

From check in to check out this hotel is simply wonderful. We stayed on the gold floor and the gold lounge experience is first rate. The luxury begins in the foyer and ends only with attention to every detail. Particularly liked the TV in the bathroom mirror. The views are good and the staff excellent. Nothing is too much trouble.

This hotel is in a perfect waterfront location, great for walks along the waterfront path which leads to many bistros and pubs. Fantastic venue for gala events and hospitality suites, etc. The doormen are so accommodating when parking your car. It is a dog friendly hotel. The ARC Lounge has high ceilings and is nice and bright during the day.... More
