A little late in writing this as we were there over Labor Day weekend 2013. Stayed for four nights and we really enjoyed the hotel. We found Room 872 (considered standard category) to be more than pleasing. Not huge, but well appointed with a large closet that fit all of our things to get them out of the way. This room is on the front of the hotel over the driveway but high enough that there was no noise or distraction from the comings and going below. It had a large window that let the sun in most of the day and we were able to open it for fresh air. Being a historic building, room size is of a past era and the bathroom was small but elegant. The buffet breakfast was great, but even with the vast selection, we grew tired of it after the fourth morning. I have to thank the wait staff, however, who were very happy to make an ice-coffee for me when I requested it instead of hot. A different server each day but each was accommodating and made it to my liking. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because we were disppointed with the pool area. It was a busy weekend and the outdoor pool was a little small for all the kids and parents tossing balls and water toys around. The indoor pool was larger but we wanted to be outside during the nice weather so but we felt unable to stay long and just imagined such a grand hotel would have a grander pool area. I did a spa treatment one day while my husband went off with a fishing guide and was able to enjoy the spa pool as part of my entry into the spa area. I would highly suggest if you want a grown-up, relaxing pool day or evening, that you pay the fee to get into the spa area and make a day out of it, coming and going as you please. SO relaxing in the indoor mineral pool and waterfalls with a large hot-tub outside on the deck. I was happy I was there when I peeked over the wall to see kids kicking and splashing in a jam packed hotel pool with not one lounge chair to be had. You can use the spa area pools for free all day from open to close if you have a spa treatment booked, or join the free Fairmont rewards program to use just the pool area at a discounted rate. HIGHLY recommend Castello's restaurant on the property. Had dinner there twice.
