Treated ourselves to a night away just the 2 of us and so glad we opted for Fairmont Gold. First of all we saved ourselves the hassle of parking and felt like celebs as we were greeted and checked in by the Valet, it was $30 but so worth it, especially on a chilly day. We were pleasantly surprised by our room on the 7th floor and even more tickled by our view, directly opposite the tower. The room was opulent and luxurious but in a modern way, no floral or brass thank goodness. Our bed was extremely comfortable and so were the pillows. There was a ton of space, plenty of seating, a huge walk in closet, the most luxurious hotel towels I've ever used and high end tea/coffee making. The only downside was the bathroom was on the small side and didn't have a soaker tub. However the cleanliness was q-tip clean and sparkling. Another thing we liked was we could open a small part of the window, there' nothing worse than a stuffy hotel room. We had turn down service which included a pair of slippers, a nice touch but would've been even nicer if there were 2 pairs.
The Fairmont Gold lounge is located on the Penthouse level. It too was furnished modern and opulent like our room. Everything was clean and in order and to share it with like minded guests was a welcome change. We sat for hours, reading our books, chatting and enjoying the tea/coffee, snacks, cookies, appetizers and desserts. Breakfast the next morning was more than we expected, with bacon, sausage, eggs, cold cuts, cheeses, croissants and lots lots more. The staff were all very friendly, cheerful and helpful. Checkout easy and simple using the tv and the highlight was calling Valet for our car! A truly wonderful stay, we will definitely return.
